WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LI AQUA & VELVET?  

    

Li Aqua pigments are water-based and suitable for both microblading and machine work. Thinner to work with than Velvet and can be diluted with Soft FX.

Li Velvet is a glycerine base formulation and because of this Velvet will be thicker than Aqua. It stays moist longer and is perfect for microblading as the thicker consistency helps the pigment to grab and hang on to the hand tool better.

Since both are manufactured at Li Pigment facilities, there is no problem with mixing the 2 different formulations together.  However, keep in mind to mix thoroughly in order to keep the mixtures of the glycerine base and water base together. DO NOT mix from different company pigments together.  We don't recommend or advise to mix pigments made from a different manufacturer.

    LI-FT® QUESTIONS

    • Does LI-FT contain acid? Anything with a pH lower than water is an acidic by that definition. The surface of your skin is slightly acidic. Any layman sees the word acid and assumes it’s going to burn them. Because of this we like to distance ourselves from the subject to acid and bases because technically most things except water is an acid or a base (or a non-reactive). This product, like most products suited for the skin, has ingredients with acidic pHs. Please contact your insurance carrier for approvals.
    • Do I need training to work with Li-FT? It is highly recommended to receive training before offering Li-FT procedures. Your insurance company may require proof of training. You can now purchase your Li-FT Online Training Course HERE. If you purchase using the Halcyon Cosmetic Store website link, you will receive some bonus offers after purchase.

    • What types of tattoos or permanent makeup is LiFT® used?Most body tattoo or permanent makeup. When lightening body tattoos, smaller sections per session of larger tattoos are recommended. Results will vary depending on, but not limited to the clients’ skin condition, health profile, lifestyle, and location. Several areas of the body need to be approached with extreme caution at the hand of a professional trained in the LiFT ® lightening process. Especially the eyes. 
    • Can I use LiFT® on any skin type? Use with caution on Fitzpatrick V and VI, any other skin types that show previous signs of hyper or hypopigmentation, or if the technician has reason to believe the skin will result in hyper or hypopigmentation. A pre-procedure test for hyper or hypopigmentation on these skin types is recommended.
