If your lips seem more washed out than they once did, it might be time to consider a lip colour treatment. Along with thinning lips and lip lines that come with age, comes the gradual loss of colour. Often colour loss begins at the outer edge of our lips and progresses inwards, or occurs in random patches, both of which contribute further to the look of aging lips.At Halcyon Cosmetic we are able to rejuvenate your lip colour with micropigmentation. Lip colour can be applied focussing on the outer edge, as a thin wash throughout, or as a densely pigmented lipstick. Colour ranges from a sheer and natural blush, to bright, bold and vibrant. As always, lip colour is individually customized for you. The restoration of lip colour can make your lips appear fuller and more youthful, but lip colour should never be applied outstide of the natural border to achieve fuller looking lips. If fullness is your main concern, consider dermal filler to attract moisture for soft, fuller lips.
Lip colour restoration is the application of lip colour with permanent makeup pigment. Lip colour can be applied as a wash of sheer colour or more heavily, similar to lipstick, and is available in a variety of colours. For more information see this page.
The pigment used to rejuvenate lip colour is permanent makeup pigment, otherwise known as tattoo ink. There are some differences in the manufacturing of permanent makeup pigments to account for the sheerer application techniques as well as constant sun exposure when applied to the face.
Pigments are either inorganic (iron oxide based) or organic (carbon based). This is the chemical composition of pigment and has nothing to do with being “grass fed’. It does, however, contribute to the vibrancy and longevity of the colour. Ensure your artist understands lip colour chemistry!
