Medical Considerations

Must be read before all Permanent Makeup Procedures



The following medical conditions require special consideration before permanent makeup procedures. Clients with any of these conditions should contact their physician to determine if it will be safe to have a permanent cosmetic procedure. In some cases the cosmetic we will ask for a physicians release.

  • Diabetes. Healing could be compromised, higher risk of infection and easy bleeding. 
  • Glaucoma. Increased intraocular pressure combined with pressure placed on the eye to apply eyeliner could be damaging.
  • Bleeding disorders. Blood disorders that affect clotting such as hemophilia, sickle cell,anemia, platelet disorders.
  • Mitral Valve Prolapse, Artificial Heart Valves, Artificial Joints. Any condition that requires prophylactic antibiotics before dental or other procedures will need to take them before micropigmentation also.
  • Herpes Simplex. People who get fever blisters / cold sores may experience an outbreak after lip procedures. Antiviral prescription should be taken 2 days before.
  • Pregnancy. Procedure should be postponed.
  • Breast Feeding. Procedure should be postponed
  • Keloid prone or Hypertrophic Scarring. Persons with tendencies for this type of scarring have that risk with permanent makeup as well.
  • Use of certain Medications. Accutane / Retin-A, topical steroids can make skin fragile. Physician strength meds / treatments that affect the dermal layer of the skin can affect the permanent make-up. OTC meds / treatments that only affect the epidermis and are not much concern. Anticoagulants (blood thinners), long-term use of aspirin, ibuprofen, and some herbs reduce clotting time resulting in increased bleeding and bruising.
  • Heart conditions, Uncontrolled High Blood Pressure.
  • Any treatment, medication, or illness that compromises the immune system / healing would make you NOT a good candidate for micropigmentation procedures.
  • Lips that have been injected with fillers may not hold color well. Restylane injected superficially near the lip edge has caused migration or feathering to occur along the lipline. There has not been a problem if the lip permanent makeup is healed first, then the lip filler injected second.
  • Lips that have been injected with liquid silicone risk disruption of the capsular formation holding the micro droplets in place due to stretching and pressure applied for the permanent lip color procedure.
  • Loss of liquid injectable silicone may occur, and all risks associated with free silicone applies if this happens. Lip implants may become infected if the lips aquire an infection. The mouth is full of germs and saliva will contact all the open holes made by the tattooing.

Please take these risks seriously. Every possible complication does not happen every time.
