PREGNANT / BREASTFEEDING

Hormonal changes will greatly affect your pigment retention.  It’s best to wait!  We suggest giving your body a few months to normalize after having your baby and/or nursing.  You are more than welcome to pre-book your appointment if you know when you’ll be done!

AUTO IMMUNE DISORDERS

Autoimmune disorders can cause challenges to permanent makeup results.  Due to the body’s immune system being in a compromised state, we want to ensure you can heal correctly.  Results can be unpredictable depending on the type of disorder.

TAN / SUNBURN

UV rays are your skin’s worst enemy! We absolutely will not work on guests who are tan or sunburned. Why? Not only is the skin in a damaged state, but we simply cannot read your true skin tone. Your results will appear blurry under the skin, change in color, fade prematurely, or not retain at all.

KELOIDS / HYPERTROPIC SCARRING

Unfortunately, if you are prone to developing keloids / hypertrophic scars, we must avoid permanent cosmetics. We certainly would never want to run the risk of creating a raised scar on your face! Keloids are simply an overproduction of collagen during the body’s healing process.

BLOOD THINNERS / BLEEDING DISORDERS

 If you currently take blood-thinning medication or have a bleeding disorder, you are not a candidate for permanent cosmetics.  Simply put, the more your skin bleeds during a procedure, the less pigment retention you will have.  Due to increased blood flow, your pigment stands a high chance of healing very ash in color, or not retaining at all.

ANTI- AGING / ANTI- ACNE PRODUCT USE

The use of these products prior to your appointment causes increased cell renewal and leaves the skin sensitive.  Stopping use at least one month prior to your service is recommended. Please note, the use of these products after tattooing will cause lightening and potential color change.

BOTOX

Wrinkle relaxers can adjust the lift in your brow and disable natural movement.  We suggest letting your results wear off before you see us for a brow appointment so we can see your natural brow symmetry. You’re free to resume Botox or the like once you’re healed from both brow treatments!

ACCUTANE

Absolutely no Accutane use within one year of treatment. No exceptions!

CHEMOTHERAPY

Because your health is our greatest concern, please wait 6 months post treatment. If you are considering permanent makeup before your treatment begins, allow 12 weeks (start to finish) to squeeze in both appointments!

OILY / EXTREMELY OILY SKIN

Regretfully, oily to severely oily skin does not retain well in permanent makeup procedures. Microblading looks are not an option, however, fully shaded techniques such as ombre powder brows are possible! Oily skin will always fade faster, so this is also important to note if you choose to move forward.

THIN / MATURE SKIN

It is our responsibility to ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.  Thin or mature skin runs a greater risk of increased bleeding, blurred results or poor retention. Fully shaded techniques such as ombre powder brows are recommended!

LASER TREATMENTS / RESURFACING / FACIALS

Similar to anti-aging ingredients, facial resurfacing of any kind will change the quality of your skin.  Laser treatments, chemical peels, and resurfacing treatments have the potential to prevent pigment from retaining at all, or causing very blurred, cool results.
