Let’s get Ready.

Hello beautiful! Here is a preview of part of your paperwork you’ll have to read through, fill out and sign before each appointment. I want to give you the opportunity to look them over and make sure you’re in the best health to get any permanent makeup service done by me. Your health is my number one priority. When in doubt, please check with your doctor to see if there’s anything that they would be concerned about. If you are currently dealing with any of the things listed below (or other things that could possibly disallow you from getting your brows, eyes and/or lips done) I will require a doctor’s note explaining and signing off that you are able to get microbladed/tattooed on the face.

Before your appointment, please be sure to avoid blood thinners, alcohol, ibuprofen, and any other pain relievers 24-48 hours before your appointment. Caffeine the day of the procedure may increase discomfort levels and blood flow. It is also advised to avoid heavy exercise 24 hours prior and 10-14 days following your procedure. Those on their menstrual cycle will experience greater sensitivity. No tanning for 72 hours before your appointment. Finally, get ahead on your dirty work before your appointment – no dusting, lawn mowing, changing the cat litter or any chores that will get dirt/bacteria on the healing area.

Contraindications - You are not a candidate for micropigmentation if any of the following apply to you:

  • Currently diagnosed with COVID-19 virus

  • Currently undergoing chemotherapy

Restrictions – You may or may not require a visit to and clearance from your doctor if some of the following restrictions apply to you:

  • Previously diagnosed with COVID-19 virus or had any contact with people diagnosed with it

  • Diabetes (specifically Type 1)

  • Diagnosed with immune disorders and/or taking immunosuppression medication

  • Taking blood thinning medication

  • Retinol/Retin-A must be discontinued 1 month by or around the area of micropigmentation prior to procedure. (It will cause the skin to bleed).

  • Injections (Botox, JuvaDerm, Voluma, etc.) must be done 3 weeks before or after procedure.

  • Chemical peels, laser treatments and microneedling may not be done within 60 days before or after procedure.

  • The use of lash growth serums

  • (such as Latisse®, Babe Lash®, etc.) must be discontinued at least 3 months prior to your eyeliner procedure (it creates an inflammatory response, causes excess bleeding and prohibits the eyeliner from healing well).

  • The use of lip plumpers (such as Too Faced® Lip Injections, Grande Lips®, etc.).

  • The use of brow growth serum (such as Grande Brow®) must be discontinued for at least 2 months.

  • Sunburned or suntanned skin is damaged skin and therefore will cause excessive bleeding. (I CANNOT work on sunburned or regularly suntanned skin.)

  • You cannot expose the area to the sun for 30 days before or after procedure.

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine 1 day before procedure to minimize any oozing, bleeding or swelling.

  • Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen 3 days prior to procedure unless medically necessary.

For BROW services:

 

Please discontinue the use of any Retinol, Glycolic or other acid/active skincare products in the brow area 30 days before your scheduled appointment. Avoid tweezing, waxing, electrolysis, and coloring your brows for two weeks prior to the procedure. This will allow me the most flexibility to achieve optimal results.

For LIP services:

 

Please have a prescription for an antiviral medication from your doctor, if you have ever had a cold sore, fever blister or herpes simplex before. Begin taking it at least two to three days before your scheduled appointment. Follow your physician’s instructions.

For EYELINER services:

 

Please have any and all eyelash extensions removed prior to your appointment. Do not wear contact lenses during and after the procedure for at least two to three days following. If using reusable contacts, open up brand new ones for after the procedure — this applies to mascara or any other additional liner as well. Remember to bring your glasses.

In order to provide all of my clients with great service and the best experience, my policies are as follows:

CLIENT-ONLY IN THE PROCEDURE ROOM:

Though a friend or family may accompany you to your appointment, I have learned it is best that they do not sit in on your procedure. It is important the artist is able to have their full focus on you, the client. Friends and family tend to be a distraction for both the client and artist.

CHILDREN, TODDLERS AND BABIES:

Although I love children, toddlers and babies, I must kindly ask that you do not bring them with you to your appointment. Unfortunately, they are a distraction to both the client and myself and I always want to avoid any possibility of them getting hurt by any of my products and tools (numbing agents, microblades and tattooing needles). Thank you for your understanding.

PETS AND ANIMAL FAMILY MEMBERS:

As a dog mom (and previous hamster grandmom), I also love animals of all kinds but it is technically not allowed in the salon unless it is a registered service animal. There are no exceptions.

TARDINESS/CANCELLATION POLICY:

Micropigmentation is a time-intensive service. In booking your appointment, I am reserving a designated amount of time specifically for you. I require a $100 non-refundable deposit that will go towards the total of your service in order to reserve this time for your appointment. You may always reschedule or cancel your appointment 48 hours beforehand, if needed. Less than that will result in a charge of half the total of what service(s) you’re getting. If you are late, please contact me immediately. I know things happen and that’s understandable, but please be aware that I have allotted only a certain amount of time for each service so I will only be able to make use of the time you are giving me.
