If you have EVER had any of the listed conditions, it is very important that you are pre-treated with an antiviral. this prescription can be provided by your physician.

  • Please start moisturizing your lips 3 days before your procedure with Aquaphor, Vitamin E oil, or a lip balm (ChapStick).

After

  • Keep your lips moist, using Vitamin E oil for 2 weeks following.

  • Do not let the area dry out completely, this can cause scabbing and cracking on the skin surface

  • Do not expose tattooed area to sun or tanning beds without using sun block. This can cause pre-mature fading.

  • Do not eat citrus fruits and juices, greasy, salty, oily or spicy foods until your lips have completely healed.

  • While eating, do not constantly wipe your lips with a napkin or keep licking your lips as this will impede the healing process
