Are you a good candidate?
Permanent Makeup is appropriate for a wide variety of skin types. However, some people are not good candidates due to certain contraindications. People with the following conditions are NOT good candidates:
-history of keloid scarring above the neck
-use of Accutane within the past year
-skin disease or injury in the treatment area
-poor wound healing
-use of blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or fish oil within a week of treatment
-currently undergoing chemotherapy
-hemophilia, uncontrolled diabetes, or certain auto-immune disorders
- currently pregnant or breastfeeding
-currently taking antibiotics
IMPORTANT: If you have an existing cosmetic tattoo in the area you wish to be treated, you MUST send a clear, close-up photograph of the area (without makeup) to 817-719-8852 before setting your appointment. In some cases, you will need to also have an in-person consultation in addition to your photographs. Sometimes an old tattoo cannot be covered without removal treatments, and this is why it's imperative that you consult with your artist beforehand to assess whether you are a candidate.
-discontinue blood thinners such as Advil, ibuprofen, Motrin, aspirin, fish oil and vitamin E.
- for lip procedures, if you are prone to cold sores/fever blisters, pre-treat for 5 days with your usual preventative methods
- for eyeliner procedures, you MUST remove any false lashes/lash extensions one week prior to your appointment.
- for eyeliner procedures, you MUST discontinue lash growth serums for 2-4 weeks before your appointment
What to expect during the healing process:
- your new eyeliner or lips will appear darker and sharper initially, lasting for a few days
- your eye or lip area may experience noticeable swelling for a few days
- your lips or eyes may be dry or itchy for a few days
-around day 3-4, flaking/peeling will begin (do NOT pick!)
- your lips or liner may appear too light once peeling has finished, but don't worry! The color will resurface with time
