Using a specialist facial tattooing machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine, I gently apply pigment to the lips using very fine needles. The sensation is that of an electric toothbrush being held against your skin – you feel the vibrations but you should not feel much discomfort. I will always work with you at this stage, giving you breaks if you need them. The process normally takes about 90 minutes, but it varies from person to person depending on your individual requirements. After a lip treatment you are likely to be swollen, so we do not advise making any social plans for a few days afterwards.
