For those people that are not an HSV-1 carrier, Permanent Makeup lip procedure cannot give you herpes. The artist uses single use sterile needles, therefore, it is safe.
However, if you are an HSV-1 carrier, the trauma of needling your lips will cause an outbreak. To avoid an outbreak, it is recommended that you take an anti viral medication pre and post procedure. There are several on the market and they do vary in strength. Please consult with your doctor for a prescription. Lysine- L is not effective and therefore should not replace anti viral medication.
