Permanent Makeup Patch Test

The Importance Of Permanent Makeup Patch Tests

Why Have A Patch Test?

With any permanent makeup treatment there is one thing you MUST have before treatment commences. And it could avoid irrepairable damage being done to your face.

When To Have A Patch Test?

A patch test should be carried out at least 12 hours before any permanent makeup is applied. This is a simple step which takes just a few seconds to do but could save you a lot of hassle, heart ache and pain.

How A Patch Test Is Performed…

Using a lancet the skin is pierced twice,  the pigment is applied to the 1st area and topical anaesthetic is applied to the 2nd area. This feels like a tiny scratch and may sting for a split second, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Common Reactions To  A Patch Test…

Reactions include, rashes, major swelling (there will be a little swelling after a treatment but this is normal and should go down within a few days) inflammation, irritation, soreness and sometimes lumps under the skin.

Warning About Not Having A Patch Test…

Removing permanent make up is not an easy job. Laser can take a few sessions and there still maybe some pigment left behind also it’s not always safe to laser round your eyes.

It amazes me that there are still some technicians out there that are happy to perform a treatment without carrying out a patch test first. Not only is it so easy to do but the clients health should ALWAYS be put first.
