Sensitivity patch testing is recommended for those who may have allergy to nickel, as there are traces of nickel in some needles and pigments which may affect you. The sensitivity patch test will not always confirm or determine conclusively if you have an allergy to nickel or whether you will have a reaction to the products used within the treatment which you have requested.
Contraindications: candidates who are seeking permanent makeup and who may be contraindicated (meaning those that we cannot treat) are:
- UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE
- PREGNANT or NURSING – Although there is no medical evidence that tattooing would have any effect on an unborn child, we don’t know for sure. So, we suggest you err on the side of caution and come back after the baby is born and you are no longer nursing.
- TRANSMITTABLE BLOOD CONDITIONS… such as HIV, Hepatitis, West Nile, or any other infection.
- CHEMOTHERAPY/RADIOTHERAPY or ACTIVE SKIN CANCER…Must get clearance from your doctor before considering permanent make-up.
- ON ACCUTANE, RETIN A, AHA’s (lactic, glycolic, citric, retinoic and tartaric acids) or any OTC creams and lotions for tone correcting, anti-aging, exfoliating, fading can discolor your permanent makeup… Topical steroids thin the skin. Depending on the stage your skin is at, it may be too fragile to undergo procedure. You should get clearance from your doctor before considering permanent make-up.
- ON PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH MEDICATION OR TREATMENTS…that affect the dermal layer of the skin can affect the permanent make-up.
- ON ANTICOAGULATIONS…(blood thinners) long term use of aspirin, ibuprofen and some herbs reduce clotting time resulting in increased bleeding and bruising, which will affect the implantation of pigment as well as increase the healing time.
- HAVE AN AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASE… Such as Lupus, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc. You should get clearance from your doctor before considering permanent make-up.
- DIABETIC…If you are insulin dependent, you are not a candidate for permanent make-up. Healing could be compromised and take longer than average. Otherwise, if your doctor feels your condition is under control you may request a letter stating that you are able to undergo cosmetic tattooing.
- HAVE GLAUCOMA…You may not have eyeliner. Increased intra ocular pressure combined with pressure placed on the eye to apply eyeliner could be damaging. It is important to have this condition under control and/or refer to your physician for further consent to the application of eyeliner.
- BLOOD DISORDERS… that affect clotting such as hemophilia, sickle cell anemia and platelet disorders could interfere with implantation of pigment, however it is possible to receive successful implantation of permanent cosmetics.
- MITRAL VALVE PROLAPSE, ARTIFICIAL HEART VALVES, OR ARTIFICIAL JOINTS… or any person that requires prophylactic antibiotics before dental or other procedures will need consult their physician for treatment prior to permanent make-up.
- SKIN DISEASES… such as psoriasis, eczema and un-diagnosed rashes or blisters on the site that is to be treated.
- HAVE ANY OTHER HEART CONDITIONS… uncontrolled high blood pressure and poor general health would be special concern, you will need to see your physician and discuss the procedure to gain pre-approval.
- HERPES SIMPLEX… People who get fever blisters and/or cold sores may experience an outbreak after procedures. It’s imperative that you discuss the procedure with your physician before the procedure and receive proper instructions how to prevent an outbreak post procedure. Most physicians will offer a prescription for Zovirax or Valtrex to take prior to and after procedure.
- KELOID OR HYPERTHOPHIC SCARRING…Persons with tendencies for this type of scarring have the same risk with tattoo also. The risk is mainly in the torso area, however, we may decide to do a patch test to ensure that you do not scar in this manner.
- If there are any blemishes, pimples, active cold sores, irritation of the skin of any kind, moles or other skin imperfections in or around the area of the procedure, Dermal Artistry will NOT be able to do the procedure until the blemish or area of concern is gone or the mole is removed and healed.
- If excessive bleeding occurs, extra appointments may be necessary for desired outcome or procedure may not be effective.
You must wait if you’ve recently had:
- EYE SURGERY. If you have had Lasik, Cornea repair, etc. you will need to wait at least 6 months before permanent makeup procedure on your eyes.
- SCARS from surgery or injury must be healed for at least one year prior to service.
- You must be off Retin-A or Retinols 7 days prior to appointment and avoid or around the area for 30 days after. If used before 30 days, it can cause the pigments to fade prematurely.
- Botox or fillers around the desired procedure area within 6 months.
- Eyelash extensions: AFTER permanent makeup, not before. Or remove them before your procedure. (For eyeliner treatment only)
- Eye lift or blepharoplasty.
- Pinkeye: As soon as their infection has cleared, medication completed.
- Flu or Cold: Please stay home, reschedule your appointment if you have cold or flu or sinus/respiratory infection.
Pre-Treatment Advice: what you need to know.
Advice for all permanent cosmetic treatments:
Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or any blood thinners for 2 days before and 2 days after the treatment. If medications is directed use by a physician, you must first consult with them and get approval.
Do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment.
Feel free to wear your normal make on the day of the treatment. Make-up on the area to be treated will be removed upon your arrival as part of the preparation for the session, before the numbing cream is applied.
Please have any waxing, threading, or sugaring done, no less than, 48 hours prior any procedures.
Eyebrow tinting should not be done 2 weeks prior to the treatment.
Any eyelash extensions must be completely removed before treatment.
Any lash tinting or perming should be done no sooner than 1 week before or 2 weeks after the treatment.
Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately following the treatment. Remember to bring your glasses, you may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes feel comfortable (normally 24 hours after the treatment)
Natural beauty spots are not perfectly round. We therefore advice you not to have a perfectly round spot, as this may not look natural.
Proper aftercare is crucial following your enhancement to achieve the best results.
- Permanent cosmetic treatments can require multiple sessions. For best results, you may need to return for at least one touch up session between four and eight weeks after the initial treatment.
- Be prepared for the color to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the treatment. This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals. This process can take up to 14 days.
What to expect the first few weeks after microblading. (see illustration below)
From day 2-7:
All the hairstrokes that have been applied have started the healing process. During this period some may experience flaking, peeling or scabbing as this is normal when tissue is healing. Please do not panic. The top layer will then shed, making it appear very light.
From day 8-21:
At this stage your skin is still healing and changing. The skin will appear a different colour – translucent/opaque which will make it very hard to see the pigment under the microbladed skin. From week 3 the skin starts to become “normal” again, meaning it will be more clear, pigment and hairstrokes will be visible once again. Please be aware that all skin types are different, which can result in variations in appearance during the healing process. Please wait the full 4 weeks for the colour to settle, we will revisit any areas that did not take or faded at your touch up.
Aftercare For Eyebrows:
Proper care following your enhancement is necessary to achieve the best results. You may experience the following symptoms for the first few days which are common during healing process:
– Minor swelling and redness, mild tenderness
– Itchiness in and around the treated area.
– Dry flaking skin (some color loss is normal).
Daily care to follow for 7-10 days post treatment
-No wetting, excessive sweating, steam or saunas!!
– Itching is normal. Please DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR RUB your enhancement as the colour may heal unevenly and you could risk infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Allow the colour to flake naturally. The end of the first week, post procedure, is typically when the scabbing/skin shedding will occur.
– Do not undergo any skincare beauty treatments for at least 14 days after the application of your enhancement.
– No make-up should be applied close to your enhancement during this time.
Avoid for 2 weeks
– Do not expose your enhancement in direct sun, tanning treatments, jacuzzis, salt water, chlorinated pools and direct shower spray.
– Do not tint, wax, peels, electrolysis or laser hair removal treatments close to the enhancement region.
Please note your selected color will be more striking and sharply defined for a few days after treatment but as the healing process occurs the colour will soften and lighten up to 40%.
The approximate initial healing period is 14 days, however healing can be prolonged if your immune system is compromised, or if you are generally stressed and by poor diet. Keep in mind that in many cases, some unevenness of color is to be expected. This is the purpose of the re-touch visit allowing us to fine tune your enhancement. This is included in the initial cost, however if you do not attend your scheduled re-touch appointment you will be charged for any further treatment.
Long term care:
Use a good sunscreen as sun exposure will fade your enhancements.
If you are scheduled to have a chemical peel, laser procedure or an MRI scan, please inform the technician of your permanent cosmetics. Please inform the National Blood Service if you donate blood, as you may not be eligible to give blood for a year post application.
Aftercare For Eyes:
All of the above plus:
– No makeup on eyes for at least 72 hours.
– A new mascara must be used after treatment, no sooner than 1 week post procedure.
– No need to apply aftercare balm on eyes as eyes are naturally moist (only used if needed).
Aftercare For Lips:
– Drink through a straw for the first few days.
– Apply balm as necessary to keep lips moist.
– Eat clean dry foods or with cutlery to avoid getting the lips dirty and avoid spicy and salty foods.
– No kissing until scabs have completely come off.

How often do you need touch ups?
Touch ups vary depending on the type of procedure you’re having done. Just like anything in the beauty industry, cosmetic tattooing requires maintaining.
