If you suffer with alopecia healed result of hair strokes may be blurry. Trichotillomania (the impulse of pulling out of hair)

Due to the higher risk of scarring in the area from the constant pulling out of hair healed results can vary and you may not get optimal results. Shingles. If you have had shingles on your face you will not be able to have the procedure. Eczema, Psoriasis or Dermatitis in or around the brow area can affect the healed result.

Oily skin is not a good candidate for hair strokes. Another alternative will be recommended.

Haemophilia or Blood Disorder, a Drs note will be needed to perform the procedure. If you do not provide me with the Doctors note, then your appointment will be rescheduled, and you will lose your booking deposit.

Moles in the treatment area. I cannot tattoo over a mole. If there is a mole in your brows, then you will have a gap where the mole is. Scarring from brow piercings. Pigment may not hold or may migrate under the skin.

If you have wrinkles in your brow the hair strokes will look uneven.

If you suffer with Cold Sores you will be required to take cold sore medication 5 days prior and for 5 days post lip treatment. Please not taking the medication does not mean that you won’t suffer with a breakout after the procedure.

Thyroid disturbances, if you are taking medication we can proceed with the treatment, but results can vary.

If you are taking Accutane (acne medicine) or any other prescribed acne medicines within the last year I will not work on you. You must provide a Drs note with the last date you took the medication on it. If you do not bring the Drs note you will be rescheduled and you will lose your booking deposit.

Auto Immune Disorders can affect pigment retention. You may not be a candidate. You will be required to list medicines currently taking including all vitamins.

Please DO NOT take any fish oil for 2 weeks before the procedure. Frequent Exercise will fade your permanent makeup faster than normal. This is due to the sweat production. Salt and saline are use in pigment removal.

Lash serums must be stopped at least 2 months before procedure. And not resumed till at least 2 months after your touch up.

Please note that if you are going on holiday it is recommended that you wait 4 weeks before having your procedure from when you get back. Or have your treatment 4 weeks before you go away. Having a tan within 4 weeks of treatment either side will cause the pigment to heal darker than expected.

There are a number of things that should come into account when choosing the technician that’s right for you. You should ask to see client testimonials and before and after pictures. Is the technician enthusiastic about permanent makeup? Do they keep up to date with regular training? Do they make you feel comfortable? An important thing to check is that the local authority has licensed the technician and the work space for cosmetic tattooing. Have a look around and make sure the treatment area is kept clean and tidy. Check that the technician uses disposable items and proper sanitation.
Permanent make up or micro pigmentation is a form of tattooing. The natural mineral pigment used is implanted into the skin, giving you natural results that can last years if looked after correctly. All permanent makeup whether it is performed with a hand tool i.e. micro blading, soft tap or with a machine is a tattoo and is permanent. Yes permanent makeup can fade over time but there will always be a trace of pigment in the skin. This is why colour boosters are recommended every 1 year to 18 months but clients can sometimes go years without needing a booster.
Your comfort is of the up most importance. Everyone has a different pain threshold. A topical anaesthetic is applied to the treatment area before the treatment starts and also applied during treatment. There may still be a little bit of discomfort but this should ease as the treatment progresses.
Permanent make up can last years if looked after correctly and if you keep up with your top ups. After your initial treatment you will be booked in for either another 3-1 complimentary top ups depending on the treatment, approximately 6 weeks apart. After that you won’t need to be seen for another 1 year to 18 months.
It is totally safe. A patch test is carried out before treatment starts to ensure you’re not allergic to the pigment and also the anaesthetic. The treatment is carried out using sterile individually packaged items which are one use only, so are disposed of straight after use.
Anyone is suitable for permanent make up. If you want to improve your brow shape, enhance your eyes or your lip colour you are suitable. Please take a look at the benefits of permanent make-up on my website.
Side effects to the treatment are usually localised to the treatment area. Any swelling or bruising that occurs usually subsides within 24 hours of the initial treatment. Flaking of the treatment area is normal during the healing process, all of which is fully explained in the aftercare sheet i provide post treatment. Any unusual side effects such as heat, blistering and extreme itching are extremely rare and although a patch test is carried out a minimum of 48 hours prior to any treatment an allergic response/reaction could still occur at anytime post treatment, even years after. If any unusual side effects occur then please seek medical advice straight away and inform me.
The colour will appear darker straight after treatment but will lighten as the healing process takes place. If you don’t like the final result after your 6 week top up there may be a few things that weren’t considered during the consultation process. I try to make the consultation process as thorough as possible to avoid any miss communication. Permanent Makeup is an art not a science so results can vary person to person and no guarantees can be made to the final outcome. How your skin heals the permanent makeup is out of my control.
The treatment is not finished until you have had your 6 week top up. This is because after your first treatment some of the colour may not have stayed, this happens because the skin tries to reject the pigment. This can be corrected at your top up appointment.
