What should you NOT do before Permanant Make-up?



Be Honest With Your Eyebrow Artist

Stay calm!

Be aware that it might be a little uncomfortable at first. Make sure to stay calm when getting them done. If they hurt too much, you can always let your eyebrow artist know!


*Do not work out 24 hours before procedure.

*NO alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before procedure (Yes, there is caffeine in decaf coffee and tea!).

*Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.

*Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure.

*Avoid power shakes and power greens, Fish Oil, and "Hair, Skin, Nail" supplements 24 hours prior to procedure.

*Discontinue Glycolics, Chemical Peels and Retin-A 4 weeks prior.

*Refrain from use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior to and 2 weeks after your procedure. Check your moisturizer, facewash BB or CC creams and makeup primers for anything that says acid.

*No brow waxing or tinting one week before.

*Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle as well.

*You have to be off any kind of Accutane for 1 year. NO Exceptions!

-IF YOU USE BOTOX, IT SHOULD BE PERFORMED EITHER 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR SCHEDULED PROCEDURE OR 2 WEEKS AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE.

-AVOID POWER SHAKES AND POWER GREENS 3 DAYS PRIOR TO PROCEDURE, CAUSES BLOOD THINNING AND HEAVY BLEEDING!

*WE DO NOT WORK ON ANYONE PREGNANT OR STILL BREAST FEEDING, NO EXCEPTIONS


NOT CANDIDATES FOR PERMANENT MAKEUP

*Heart Conditions/Pace Maker/Defibrillator (No exceptions)

If you are any of these medications, you will bleed and the pigment WILL NOT retain)

If you "keloid" scar, you need to ask your doctor (raised scarring)

Hemophiliac


IF YOU ARE ON THESE MEDICATIONS:

Triflusal (Disgren)

Clopidogrel (Plavix)

Prasugrel (Effient)

Ticagrelor (Brilinta)

Ticlopidine (Ticlid)

Cilostazol (Pletal)

Vorapaxar (Zontivity)

Dipyridamole (Persantine

Coumadin

Pradaxia (dibigatran)

Xarelto (rivaraxaban)

Eliquis (apixaban)

Savaysa (edoxaban)


*Cirrhosis of the Liver

(Susceptable to infection)

*Surgical Forehead/Brow lift

(Scar tissue will prevent proper healing)


*Trichotillomania(Compulsive pulling of body hair)

(Due to constant pulling, scar tissue is prominent and pigment will not heal properly)

*Shingles-Have you EVER had shingles on your face

(No exceptions...PMU will not be performed as the procedure could cause a flare up)

* Eczema, Psoriasis or Dermatitis in or around the brow area

(Constant flaking/itching/irritation/shedding of skin)

*Oily or severely oily skin

(The hair strokes will appear more blended, solid or not retain at all) Shading is a better option over Microblading.

*Large pores on your forehead & in the brow area

(Pigment will blur/blend in large pores looking powdered)

*Hemophilia-Bleeding Disorder

*Platelet Disorders-Aggregation Disorders

An aggregation disorder is when platelets do not bind with fibrinogen and other proteins in order to stick to other platelets. As a result the platelets cannot form a plug to stop the bleeding from a damaged blood vessel.

*Moles/raised areas in or around the brow area

(Pigment will not be put into anything raised.)

*Deep wrinkles in the brow area

(The Hair Strokes will not lay properly in the creases, giving the brow an uneven look)

*Hair transplant for your eyebrows

(Pigment will not take in the scar tissue where the plugs were placed)

*Thyroid condition and taking medication for this condition

(Hypo, Hyper Susceptible, Graves Disease, Hashimotos) These medications do not hold pigments well. You will probably need touch up sooner than most. Also pigments can hold darker.

*Rosacea (severe reddening of the face)

*Fitzpatrick Skin types 1 (red heads/white skin/light eyes) WILL BE CONSIDERED WITH CAUTION:

Due to hypersensitivity the skin does not take the pigment well.

*On Accutane (acne medicine) within the last year

*Any type of Organ Transplant or Anti-Rejection Medications

*Auto Immune Disorder of any kind (MS, RA, Lupus or the like)

(Due to the medicines to treat these diseases, pigment will not retain well-can proceed with acknowledgment that this may happen)


*List medicines currently taking including all vitamins. If taking any medications that cause blood thinning these will need to be withheld for 3 days prior to procedure.

(NO FISH OIL 2 WEEKS PRIOR)

If directed by your Doctor- PLEASE contact your DR for permission and bring a DR note with you to your appt.


*MRSA (can be very contagious)

*I Do NOT do super thin (pencil thin) eyebrows as hair strokes will not work. We will have to switch to a powder method.

*Extremely Thin skin

(Transparent or Translucent or very vascular)

*Frequent Exercise (4-7 days per week)

(Due to the frequent production of sweat(salt), the pigment WILL NOT retain, fade very quickly, appear blurred or change in color) Once again powder method is the best option here.


THIS WILL HAPPEN!

THESE CONTRAINDICATIONS CAN ALSO PRESENT LATER IN LIFE. FUTURE PROCEDURES MAY NOT BE PERFORMED AND/OR AN ADDENDUM WILL BE REQUIRED.

IF YOU ANSWERED NO TO ALL THE QUESTIONS PLEASE PROCEED


If you have oily skin, your results WILL appear softer (eyebrows can look solid) in appearance and may require additional procedures.


Dark Skin types please note that your permanent makeup will not appear as bold as lighter skin types. (Indian, African American, Filipino, etc.)


Plan on scheduling your touch-up before you leave your appointment.


Come to your appointment with your eyebrows exfoliatied and a picture of the way you wear them (optional) if you like.


IF USING AN EYELASH GROWTH SERUM (Latisse) OR THERE LIKE ON YOUR EYEBROWS, YOU MUST DISCONTINUE USE 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO PROCEDURE AND CAN NOT USE UNTIL 2 WEEKS AFTER PROCEDURE.
