Micropigmentation is exciting, but is not recommended for everyone. Here are a list of questions for you to honestly answer when deciding to have a micropigmentation procedure.
Your health is our primary concern!
Have you had permanent make up, previously? If yes, we need to make sure that you have not been tattooed with Premier True Concentrates between the years 2000 and 2004. If you have, I will require written documentation from your previous practitioner that this product was not used. This brand of pigment can trigger an allergic reaction- even though it is old!!
Are you Pregnant or nursing? If so, please reschedule your appointment after your delivery and or nursing.
Are you scheduled for or considering vision correction surgery? No procedures can be performed 1 month prior to laser surgery and three months after. If you have recently had laser surgery, we will need your surgeon’s ok to proceed.
Have you recently had facial surgery ~ Botox ~ fillers such as Restalyne, Sculptra, etc. ~ any type of lip augmentation? If yes there is a waiting period.
Are you on Blood thinners such as Coumadin, etc. ~ Steroids such as Prednisone ~ Chemotherapy ~ Prophylactic Chemotherapy? Medical clearance will be necessary.
Are you on Accutane for treatment of Acne? A waiting period of 1 year is necessary prior to permanent cosmetics.
Do you have a heart valve replacement, stents, ~ Mitral Valve Prolapse ~ Rheumatic Fever or any heart condition? If yes they may need to be pre-medicated and we require doctor clearance.

If they are active they must wait until they have cleared. Please realize that the micro pigmentation process may trigger an outbreak.
Do you have any medical condition that has you presently in the care of a doctor or believe. If yes they may need medical clearance
Do you have a fever blister, at this time, and have you ever had even one fever blister in your lifetime? If you are having lip procedures and have any history of cold sores/fever blisters/herpes simplex, you will be required to contact your physician for a prescription to possibly prevent such outbreaks. Your physician may prescribe that they be taken twice a day, two days before lip procedures and four days after. Be sure to ask for 24 to avoid 2 co-pays. This will include enough medication for your touch up visit.
Do you use Latisse®
If yes, discontinue using at least 1 week prior to eyeliner procedure. Resume Latisse® 2 weeks post procedure.
Are you planning a vacation in the sun?
If yes, you must wait- you are not supposed to go in the water, be in the sun, or apply creams or lotions or sunblock to newly done permanent makeup!! Please schedule your appointment for after your skin has recovered from the sun!! Tanned or burned skin does not give great results for 3D Brows!
