If you run your finger through your brows and there is a bump, there cannot be any blemishes within a fingers width of the brow. As we wipe pigment, it can get into the irritated area and stain the skin. There is no way to avoid that.


(You can always email a photo the day before your procedure if you would like us to view the area of concern.)



If you show up to the appointment and there is an area of concern, you will be rescheduled to the next available appointment (typically months out) and

forfeit your deposit for the appointment time lost. A new deposit will be required to reschedule.

NO EXCEPTIONS


You ARE NOT a good candidate for the hair strokes if you have LARGE pores or Oily/Severely Oily Skin, your results WILL appear to fade faster or not retain pigment in some areas.




 

General Rules for ALL Procedures

EXERCISE (ADDENDUM REQUIRED)

If you work out regularly (4-7 days a week), your eyebrows WILL fade very fast due to the production of salt/sweat. Salt is used to remove permanent makeup. Appointments will not be moved earlier if you have premature fading due to lifestyle. They WILL appear more powdered or blurred under the skin as well. If you are not ok with this, then you should not have the procedure done. Your artist reserves the right to refuse future services if she feels the results wont be to the clients satisfaction.


TAN(ADDENDUM REQUIRED)

YOU CANNOT HAVE A TAN 30 DAYS BEFORE & ABSOLUTELY NO SUN 30 DAYS AFTER (This means you cannot go out in sun with a hat and glasses on) this means no SUN or HEAT FOR 30 AFTER at all. If you resume tanning, the results will fade quickly, heal darker, fade super fast or not retain at all. Your artist will not see you any sooner than your routine scheduled appt. If you ruin the results by going out in the sun too soon, we may not be able to work on you in the future.



There is NO GUARANTEE'S made as to the final outcome. Your skin, lifestyle and after care play a huge roll in YOUR results. EVERYONE heals differently. Not everyone is a candidate for the Hair Stroke procedure. There may be other contraindications not listed and your appt. may be canceled. This is left up to your artist discretion and she will be totally honest with you.


Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures. Most swelling occurs on day 1-3. A needle was placed in your skin, there WILL be swelling, how much is individualized. Some clients may have minimal swelling, some may more.


The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red & irritated, flake or scab unevenly. The areas may appear very light under the areas of peeling or flaking. They pigment will oxidize and become a little darker as the healing continues over the 30 days. This is all 100% normal. DO NOT PICK. If you pick, you can cause scarring. The results vary person to person and some clients may heal quicker than others or could take longer. You need to be patient and let the procedure have adequate healing over the course of 30+ days.


Color WILL fade/soften anywhere from 10%-50% or more. At the touch up we will fine tune any area that has faded too much. Even then, there is no guarantee that the pigment will heal better. Healing is specific to each client. 


It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 2+ yrs to maintain it's fresh natural appearance. Fading WILL happen after each procedure. We do not have control over your bodies healing process or skin. You may need still to powder and/or pencil even after the healed results. This is an enhancement to your natural brows....not a permanent one. At some point you will no longer be able to have your brows done. Each time a procedure is performed, scar tissue is made, causing retention to be less and less each time it is done. This is universal in all permanent makeup procedures. This is a fact. Due to the build up of scar tissue, touch ups will not be done any sooner than 2 yrs. after the 1st touch-up. NO EXCEPTIONS!


If you are out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, use anti-aging creams, retinA/retinol products, acidic cleansers, natural elements, regular chemical peels, or exercise frequently, your permanent makeup WILL fade prematurely. The better you take care of the treated area and follow the provided aftercare, the longer it will last.


Permanent Makeup is an art, NOT a science. Clients results will vary and using a pencil or powder will/may still be needed. We have no control over your bodies healing process and each time a procedure is done, the pigment will have less retention due to scar tissue.


As we age our skin changes. The permanent makeup WILL eventually look more powdered, this is universal with all permanent makeup procedures. At some point, we may no longer be able to perform services.


Remember, no two sides of the face are the same. Perfection is our goal, but, note that nothing is PERFECT. We do not use the "P" word when doing Permanent Makeup.

Sisters, NOT twins is used universally in this field Do not work out the day of the procedure as the body heat expands the pores. It is recommended not to sweat for the first 14 days following the procedure. Sweat is salt and WILL fade, blur or cause the pigment not to take at all.  (We use salt to remove permanent makeup)

PMU POST CARE

EYEBROW- Expect slight swelling, thickness, and/or redness, for 1 - 2 days following the procedure. You may use sterile ice pack wrapped in towel the first 24 hours and/or take tylenol for swelling.


• First Night: Blot brows with a few drops of sterile water and tissue paper or paper towel every 5 min until bed or until a clear fluid (lymph) isn't seen. Repeat in second day if needed.


•  Apply thin layer of ointment with cue tip before bed.


• First Morning: wash with anti-bacterial soap with a patting type method and cold water. Pat dry. Apply thin layer of ointment with cue tip.


• Second Night: Starting only at night, wash with antibacterial soap and cold water. Pat dry. Apply thin layer of ointment with cue tip. 


• In the mornings rinse with cold water only and apply ointment.



• Keep treated area dry from any other water other than washing at night for 7 to 10 days of until all dry skin has come off naturally. 


• IF OILY OR COMBO SKIN, DO NOT USE AFTER CARE INK OINTMENT UNTIL DAY 2.


Avoid sleeping on your face during the 1st - 14 days after the procedure. 


• Do not rub area vigorously when washing your face for at least 10 days.


• Do not try to remove the excess color with soap. This color will flake and fade to a beautiful natural color if left undisturbed.*


• DO NOT WAX TWEEZE OR THREAD AREA FOR 14 DAYS PRIOR.


• You may use suncreen and makeup following 10-14 days once flaking is gone. Avoid direct contact with sun until then.


 Plan on scheduling your touch-up within the first 8-12 months. 


LIPLINER /FULL LIP COLOR


•Wash with cold water, anti-bacterial soap and pat dry. Keep moist with

Aquaphor for the next 10 days, and then switch to chap stick or lipstick with an

SPF of 15 or greater, as the sun tends to fade lip color quickly.


•After the procedure, the lips will appear to have too much color. After 3 - 4 days,

the epidermis sloughs off . It will appear that you have lost all of your color;

however, when you lips have healed completely, the dermal layer will gradually become darker. Two applications may be required to achieve the desired results.


**PMU is a two part application. It is not uncommon to lose up to 40-60% of the color on the first application.Upon your 6 week touchup the color will stay more vivid.**


•Sun and tanning Beds, Chlorine Pools, Saunas, Jacuzzis

30 days or more after the appt. The area will bleed and pigment will not heal properly if this is not followed. If you resume the retinols, after the 30+ days after your procedure, your brows WILL fade quickly due to the chemicals in the creams. They WILL blur and fade faster.


o DO NOT use peroxide or Neosporin on ANY areas.


o DO NOT scrub or pick treated areas.


o DO NOT expose area to sun or tanning beds. PIGMENTS WILL HEAL DARKER IN TAN SKIN. TAN SKIN BLEEDS THEREFORE PIGMENT WILL NOT TAKE AND WILL LOOK BLURRED. EVEN AFTER THEY ARE HEALED, SUN EXPOSURE WILL CAUSE THE

****With Any of the PMU procedures***

FAILURE TO FOLLOW POST-PROCEDURAL INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN LOSS OR DISCOLORATION OF PIGMENT. *THE KNOWN POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS FROM MICRO-PIGMENTATION ARE: REDNESS, SWELLING, PUFFINESS, BRUISING, DRY PATCHES, AND TENDERNESS. IT IS NORMAL TO LOSE APPROXIMATELY l/3 OF THE COLOR DURING THE HEAUNG PROCESS. AFTER INITIAL PROCEDURE, THE COLOR MAY APPEAR HEAVIER. IT WILL APPEAR SOFTER WHEN COMPLETELY HEALED.


Permanent makeup procedures are affected by the canvas (your skin) that they are performed on. If your skin is sun damaged (even from tanning beds), thick and uneven in texture, and/or excessively dry or oily, the result cannot be expected to be perfect after the initial procedure. Scars on the lips from fever blisters cause pigment removal. 


Lifestyle, medications, smoking, metabolism, facial surgery, and age of skin, all contribute to fading. Touch ups are needed 30 days after your initial procedure to ensure the best results and to keep your permanent makeup looking the best.


YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING YOUR APPTS. Confirmation calls are not guaranteed.  


IF THE AFTER CARE IS NOT FOLLOWED PROPERLY, WE WILL KNOW AND IT WILL BE UP TO OUR DISCRETION IF WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK ON YOU IN THE FUTURE. THE IS AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR FACE AND THE AFTER CARE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE PROCEDURE.
