PRE-CARE

 

In order to have the best results/outcome of your procedure, please follow the pre-care instructions listed below. Pre-care and post-care instructions are designed to help the treated area heal properly, limit blood thinning and reduce skin sensitivities. Failure to comply may result in excess bleeding, loss in pigment color and all-around poor results. 

  • Do not work out 24 hours prior to your procedure. 

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine 48 hours prior to your procedure. 

  • Avoid Aspirin, Advil/Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, Niacin and Fish Oil 48 hours prior to your procedure.

  • Avoid heavy sun exposure and tanning one week prior to your procedure.

  • Refrain from Retin-A, Microdermabrasion and facials at least 7 days prior to your procedure.

  • Refrain from Botox, Fillers, Chemical Peels and Laser Peels at least 2 weeks prior to your procedure. 

  • Electrolysis must be done at least five days prior to your procedure.

  • *This applies to those interested in an eyebrow procedure*: If you wish to tweeze, wax and/or tint your eyebrows, please do so at least 72 hours prior to your procedure.

  • *This applies to those interested in an eyeliner procedure*: DO NOT wear contact lenses during your eyeliner procedure; Please remember to bring your glasses. You may resume wearing your contact after a few days.

  • *This applies to those interested in an eyeliner procedure*: Discontinue any lash conditioning/growth treatment, such as Latisse®, for at least 2 weeks prior to procedure.

  • *This applies to those interested in a lip procedure*: Exfoliate and moisture your lips at least 3-4 days prior to your appointment. If your lips are too dry/chapped, I can not work on them and you will be asked to re-schedule. I always suggest a mixture of sugar and coconut oil for a simple lip exfoliator. 

  • *This applies to individuals with Herpes Simplex who are interested in a lip procedure: I can not work on an active outbreak. Also, it is common for individuals who are prone to cold sores/fever blisters to experience an outbreak after lip procedures, which poses a risk of pigment loss. It is important to speak to your physician prior to receiving a lip procedure, as they may offer you a prescription for Zovirax or Valtrex to take before/after your procedure.

  • Drink water and stay hydrated!

*Please note that you will be more sensitive near your menstrual cycle (If applicable).

Covering up Permanent Makeup done by another artist: If you have had previous work done elsewhere, you are considered an initial appointment, and will be charged so. If you have had previous work done elsewhere and need color correction, you may be charged an additional fee.

Although Permanent Makeup/Cosmetic Tattoos are great for most people, some individuals may not be eligible for some procedures. Please read the following statements to find out if you are an eligible candidate for any procedures.

Who may be ineligible, without exception?

  • Individuals who are under the age on 18: I will NOT perform any procedure on someone who is under the age of 18, even with parental consent.

  • Women who are pregnant or nursing: Your body will be going through hormonal changes, which will result in a higher risk of infections and may alter the natural state of your skin.

  • Individuals with Lupus/autoimmune diseases: Lupus/autoimmune diseases can compromise your immune system, resulting in a higher risk of developing an infection.

  • Individuals with HIV/AIDS/Hepatitis: HIV/AIDS/Hepatitis can compromise your immune system, resulting in a higher risk of developing an infection.

  • Individuals with viral infections/diseases: Viral infections/diseases can compromise your immune system, resulting in a higher risk of developing an infection.

  • Individuals who are currently undergoing chemotherapy: Permanent Makeup/Cosmetic Tattoos are a great solution for cancer survivors/those who have lost hair due to chemotherapy. However, chemotherapy compromises your immune system, resulting in a higher risk of developing an infection. You may get Permanent Makeup before you start chemotherapy or after you are done chemotherapy and your doctor has cleared you. *After you are cleared, you must have a doctor's note. 

  • Individuals that have any kind of active skin condition on/near the location of your desired procedure: Conditions like Eczema, Psoriasis, Shingles, Dermatitis, Rosacea, etc. may compromise the skin's texture and surface, resulting in poor results.

  • Individuals who (currently) use Accutane: Accutane weakens your immune system, resulting in a higher risk of developing an infection. Accutane also alters the skin, making it dry and sensitive. You will need to wait at least one year after your last Accutane treatment is completed (and once your skin returns back to normal) to be considered for any procedure.

  • Individuals with an active outbreak of Herpes Simplex: *This applies to those interested in a lip procedure*: I will NOT perform any lip procedures on those who have an active outbreak. You must wait until your outbreak is over to be considered for a lip procedure. It is also common for individuals who get cold sores/fever blisters to experience an outbreak after lip procedures. It is important to speak to your physician prior to receiving a lip procedure, as they may offer you a prescription to take before/after your procedure. If you get an outbreak after your procedure, there is a risk of pigment loss in that area.

Who may eligible, with a doctor's clearance/note?

  • Individuals with Diabetes: Depending on the type of diabetes and severity, your condition must be stable and under control. If you have Diabetes, your healing could take longer than average and could be compromised, resulting in poor results. 

  • Individuals with a Pacemaker/heart problems: I use numbing agents that may contain Epinephrine, which may increase your heart rate/cause dysrhythmias.

  • Individuals who have undergone an organ transplant: An organ transplant compromises your immune system, resulting in a higher risk of developing an infection.

  • Individuals who are on blood thinners: Blood thinners may increase your risk of excess bleeding, which could result in poor outcomes/results. 

  • Individuals with Glaucoma *This applies to those interested in an eyeliner procedure*: The increased intra-ocular pressure combined with the pressure placed on the eye from the procedure, could cause damage. The risk of developing an infection is also higher in those with Glaucoma. 

Who is eligible, based on individual considerations?

  • Individuals with high blood pressure: If you have high blood pressure, your condition must be stable. You may bleed slightly more than average, causing your body to expel the pigments which may result in a poor outcome. 

  • Individuals with a thyroid condition: Certain thyroid medications may cause the pigment from your procedure to fade faster than average.

  • Individuals with Epilepsy: Those with epilepsy have the risk of experiencing a seizure.

  • Individuals who are have allergic reactions to metal/color: I use the best and highest-quality pigments/needles/blades/etc., that carry an extremely low risk of allergic reactions. However, there is always a chance of having an allergic reaction, so it is best to consult your doctor if you are concerned with metals and colorant reactions. 

  • Individuals who are prone to Keloid Scarring: Since Permanent Makeup/Cosmetic Tattooing punctures the skin, there is a risk of healing with Keloid Scars for those who are prone to Keloids.

 

*Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle (If applicable).

*Those who are under the supervision of a physician or those who have any questions/uncertainties concerning their condition(s), should always consult with a doctor prior to booking an appointment with me.
