Dark Lips Color Correction can be a life-changing procedure for many clients who struggle with hyperpigmented lips. Dark lip clients typically expect their lips to be even-toned and lighter while pale lips clients wish to define the vermilion border and have more color coverage.

Every client requires a different approach to reach the best outcome, simply because every lip is unique. Dark Lips Color Correction has been controversial for many years in the permanent makeup industry; however, it keeps getting more popular with clients who wish to correct or lighten their lips. At Permanent Cosmetics BeautiQ we offer pigment colors that are recommended especially for African-American, Indian, Hispanic, or Asian skin.

Not Every Client is the Right Candidate for Dark Lips Color Correction

Many permanent makeup artists reject clients with darker lips. Not every client is the right candidate for this treatment. Melanin-rich skin is very tricky to work on. Ethic lips correction is an extremely advanced technique that requires knowledge of color theory and the right color selection.

Any lip correction is not going to happen during one session, especially ethnic lips color correction. Only gentle technique and the right color match can do the work. Melanin-rich lips have a variety of hues. Some clients have greyish, bluish, purplish, brownish hues. It’s very important not to overwork such lips, as the trauma from the procedure can create darker pigmentation in already melanin-rich skin, aside from semi-permanent makeup pigment implanted.

Dark Lips Healing Process

When dark lips start to heal and peel off, they can go light or dark in some spots. Sometimes clients might experience post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation that goes away but could be scary for a client. Depending on how dark and hyperpigmented the lips are it might take multiple sessions to neutralize lips. The healing process of dark lips can be weird, sometimes clients’ lips get darker at the beginning and lighten up after a few weeks. With darker lips, healing usually takes 8-10 weeks; it is a long process.

IMPORTANT: If you are prone to cold sores or have had one in the past, you will need an antiviral prescription from your doctor as a preventative measure before a lip procedure.
