Lip Treatments

What is Icy Lips?

Icy Lips is a semi-permanent lip tint designed by Linda Paradis. We use the same needles 88 for this treatment which means they do not enter the deeper layers of the skin (dermis). Instead, they simply surf over the top layer of skin (epidermis) which means less trauma and a more comfortable treatment. It’s called Icy Lips because we only need a metal ice cube to gently numb the lips rather than a medicated numbing cream.

How does the pigment stay in the skin?

The back and forth movement of the needles 88 create just enough heat in the top layer of skin to produce an invisible evaporation of the moisture in the lip tissue. This allows the pigment to migrate into the dermis by a term known as osmosis. The client will need a top up session (free of charge) 3 weeks after the first initial one and then a third session 6-8 months later with another top up session 4 weeks after that, again free of charge.

What do Icy Lips pigments contain?

Our pigments do not contain any harsh chemicals. The ingredients we use are deionized water, propylene glycol, glycerol, jojoba oil and witch hazel.

What is Snow Lips?

Snow Lips is another amazing treatment developed by Linda Paradis and is popular with both men and women. It is a gentle way to lighten dark lips. Normally only one or two sessions are needed however, top up treatments may be required to maintain the desired effect. We use the same Magnetic Needles 88 for this treatment with Tattoo Remoov solution.
