NY Lips FAQ’s
STEP 1: The Design
The shape of the lip can be re-designed for a youthful fuller look. The lip is first lined then completely shaded, for a natural appearance. Your technician is a color expert and will help choose the right color or custom blend a color for you.
STEP 2: Pigmentation
NY Semi Permanent Makeup uses a single acupuncture needle that gently vibrates on the dermal layers of the skin depositing a mineral-based pigment into the skin.
