Lips Semi-Permanent Makeup

While standard lipstick and lip tint can provide a beautiful and alluring look, traditional products smudge, fade, and wear off. Give your lips a lasting, beautiful appearance with semi-permanent makeup.

Create the lip look you’ve been dreaming of with shades that match your true lip color as closely as possible. We’ll work with you to determine the most flattering look, customized for your unique face. As a top aesthetic and dermatology clinic in Dubai, Omnicare is your trusted source for beautiful lips semi-permanent makeup.

Treatment Types:

  • Lip Blush: Highlight dark pigmented lips with a natural caramel-pinkish shade
  • Lips 3D: Perfectly done lip liner with gradient color shading to enhance the Cupid’s bow
  • Juicy Lips: Brings color to depigmented lips
  • Natural Lips: Soft lip liner with combination of nude pigments; this technique is for those looking for a very natural effect, who just want to slightly correct shade and shape
  • Lipstick Effect: Perfectly done lip-liner with full color intensive shading for a 24/7 lipstick effect
  • Lips Reconstruction: This technique is for damaged tissue and aging lips; a complete reconstruction of color and shape

How does it work?

A cosmetic/medical tattooing machine is used to gently implant pigment into the lip using very small needles. It’s different from a regular tattoo machine in that the frequency is much lower, meaning the pigment is implanted closer to the surface.


  • A stylish, attractive makeup look 24/7
  • Save time and effort on your daily makeup routine and reduce the cost of lip makeup products
  • No more smudged lipstick

Pre-Treatment Care

  • Gently scrub and start to use lip balm/Vaseline a few days before treatment to make your lips soft and smooth; it is not possible to inject the pigment into areas of dry skin
  • Don’t consume Vitamin C for 1 day before treatment
  • On the day of treatment, avoid tea/coffee, alcohol, aspirin, advil, and other blood-thinning medications
  • If you have a history of Herpes virus, cold sores or any type of sore on the lips, you may have a recurrence after lip semi-permanent makeup. For best results, ask your doctor for a prescription for Zovirax, Famvir, or Valtrex. Start to use the pills 2 days before the treatment and continue after for 3-5 days.

Post-Treatment Care

  • Clean your lips 2-3 times per day with antiseptic and moisturize with aftercare cream for 10 days
  • In the case of swelling or bruising, use an icepack (wrapped in something clean) and/or take Ibuprofen to reduce inflammation
  • For the first few days, use a straw while drinking and avoid overly salty food, spicy food and very hot or cold drinks
  • Don’t touch, bite or scratch your lips – touching or picking could cause irritation, infection & loss of pigment
  • Don’t exercise for at least 2-5 days after your treatment due to sweating; gentle exercise is okay after the first few days
  • Avoid lip liner, lipstick, lip gloss, cleansers, lotions etc. on or close to your lips for 1-2 weeks to avoid irritation and cross-contamination
  • Do not clean your lips with makeup remover
  • Avoid saunas, steam rooms or swimming pools for 1 week
  • Don’t have facials or other face beauty treatments for 1 week to avoid irritation
  • Avoid chemical peels until your lips are fully healed
  • Don’t get lip fillers for 14 days from day of treatment
  • Don’t use anti-aging creams, chemical peels, acids or retinoids on or close to your lips at any time until fully healed
