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.
- Herpes Simplex
People who get fever blisters and/or cold sores may experience an outbreak after procedure. 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.
- Diabetes type 1
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.
Medication may cause side effects which may result in fainting during the treatment
- Medications and Antibiotics
Some of them can affect healing and recovery from treatment which might result in poor retention.
- Anticoagulants (blood thinners)
Long term use of heparin, 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.
- Autoimmune disease (cancer, HIV etc.)
You should get clearance from your doctor before considering permanent make-up.
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.
There is a risk of spreading the vitiligo. I cannot treat white areas, but I am able to work around it as long as You happy to accept a risk.
- General health
You should always be fit and well, and not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. You should avoid heavy drinking the day prior to Your treatment, alcohol can thin the blood and cause excess bleeding-lowering retention..
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.
From surgery or injury must be healed for at least one year prior to service.
- If You Have:
Any pimples, active cold sores, bruises, sun burn or other skin irritations in the area to be treated, they will have to be healed before you are ready for your procedure. If there are any moles in the area, they will have to be removed and fully healed beforehand if it is not possible to work around them.
- You must be of 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.
Having Botox just before Semi-permanent make-up procedure can seriously affect the placement of the pigment. This could mean that as the Botox wears off, you might be left with brows that are incorrectly placed or eyeliner that droops.
It is generally a good idea to have your Semi-permanent make up applied before you have Botox for the first time. Or at the very least, wait until it requires topping up to have your SPMU treatment carried out.
It is no problem if the Botox is done just after Semi-permanent procedure as the injection is not directly through the same exact area of skin where the permanent makeup was applied, so you can have the injection at any time. The theoretical risk would be infection. Otherwise, there is no interference between the SPMU and the Botox after.
- Lip Fillers
If you already have lip fillers You need to wait until they gone or just before your top-up is due as this is very important to carry out Semi-permanent make up on “virgin skin”. And then have the filler implanted afterwards to deal with any areas where it is not possible to improve with pigment. I will NOT proceed if you will come for the appointment with visible lip fillers.
So again, if you have lip filler and want a Semi-permanent make up treatment, its best to have the SPMU done first and the filler no less than 21 days afterwards.
- Beauty Treatments
Please avoid any facial treatments (microdermabrasion, chemical peels, dermal rollers etc.) for 3 weeks before the procedure and until healing is completed.
