How to choose a SofTap Needle for LIPS

Authored By Dr Cardona 0 Comment(s)

Lips are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than eyeliners and eyebrows. They do not accept color as well as other areas. Lip liner needs about 10-15 taps in the same spot while the full lip fill needs about 50 –60 taps per section


LIP LINER

10 prong (yellow).

  • This single row needle configuration is an excellent choice for a super fine line in order to create the desired shape on the lip line.
  • This in combination with the 18 prong used on the inside edge of the line created with the 10 prong will give you the most beautiful lip line you will ever see.
  • This will give you a medium to thick lip line with a crisp clean edge all the way around the lip.

24-prong (turquoise)

  • The 24 is best for an thin to medium lip line.

LIP FILL

84 prong (salmon pink)

  • The 84 is a 6-row needle configuration of 14 needles.
  • This is a great needle configuration for a lip fill in.
  • Do one section at a time.
  • Remember that it takes about 5 times as much tapping on the lip fill as it does on the lip line, eyes, and brows.
  • This is a good choice for small to medium sized lips.

114 prong (pink)

  • The 114 is a 6-row needle configuration of 19 needles.
  • This is a great needle configuration for a lip fill in.
  • Do one section at a time.
  • Remember that it takes about 5 times as much tapping on the lip fill as it does on the lip line, eyes, and brows.
  • This is a good choice for medium to large sized lips.

36 prong (blue)

  • The 36 is a round cluster that you may also prefer to fill in lips.
  • Keep in mind that many prefer the finer gauge needles for lips because there is less bleeding.
  • However, many find that this 36-prong needle works beautifully for the fill in of the lips.
  • We suggest that you try both kinds and see for yourself.

56 prong (dark orange)

  • The 56 quadruple row of 14-needle configuration is also used for lip fill using a criss-cross tapping across the fill of the lip.
