POSSIBLE CONTRAINDICATIONS:

 

  • Diabetes (Tendency to bleed/bruise easily; please consult with doctor first.)

  • Cirrhosis of the Liver  (Susceptible to infection.)

  • Surgical Forehead/Brow lift (Scar tissue will prevent proper healing.)

  • Trichotillomania (Due to constant pulling, scar tissue is prominent and pigment will not heal properly.)

  • Shingles (If you EVER had shingles on your face, permanent makeup will not be performed as the procedure could cause a flare up. NO EXCEPTIONS)

  • Eczema, Psoriasis or Dermatitis in or around the brow area (Constant flaking/itching/irritation/shedding of skin can make procedure very difficult to complete.)

  • Oily or severely oily skin/large pores on your forehead and in the brow area (The hair strokes will appear more blended, blurred, and look powdered. A signed addendum prior to procedure may be required.)

  • Menopause (If you have hot flashes during the procedure, the pigment will not retain and we may have to stop. A signed addendum prior to procedure may be required.)

  • If your body runs hot

  • Platelet Disorders-Aggregation Disorders (An aggregation disorder is when platelets do not bind with fibrinogen and other proteins in order to stick to other platelets. As a result the platelets cannot form a plug to stop the bleeding from a damaged blood vessel.)

  • Moles/raised areas in or around the brow area (Pigment will not be put into anything raised.) 

  • Deep wrinkles in the brow area (Hair strokes will not lay properly in the creases, giving the brow an uneven look.)

  • Hair transplant for your eyebrows (Pigment will not take in the scar tissue where the plugs were placed.)

  • Thyroid condition and taking medication for this condition (Please check with your doctor prior to procedure.)

  • Rosacea (severe reddening of the face)

  • Fitzpatrick Skin types 1 (red heads/white skin/light eyes - Due to hypersensitivity the skin does not take the pigment well.) 

  • On Accutane (acne medicine) within the last year.

  • Any type of Organ Transplant or Anti-Rejection Medications

  • Auto Immune Disorder of any kind (MS, RA, Lupus or the like, due to the medicines to treat these diseases, pigment will not retain.)

  • MRSA (can be very contagious)

  • Extremely Thin skin (Transparent or Translucent or very vascular)

  • Frequent Exercise 4-7 days per week (Due to the frequent production of sweat(salt), the pigment WILL NOT retain, fade very quickly, appear blurred or change in color. THIS WILL HAPPEN! Signed Addendum may be required.)

 

THESE CONTRAINDICATIONS CAN ALSO PRESENT LATER IN LIFE.  FUTURE PROCEDURES MAY NOT BE PERFORMED AND/OR AN ADDENDUM WILL BE REQUIRED.

 

If you have oily skin, microblading results WILL appear softer (eyebrows can look solid) in appearance and may require additional procedures. I highly recommend hybrid or powder ombre brows.

 

I do not do super thin eyebrows (pencil thin) because hairstrokes will not work.

Clients with darker skin (Indian, African-American, Filipino, etc.), please know that hair strokes WILL NOT appear as defined or as dark as lighter skin types due to the skin color already being naturally darker.

Plan on scheduling your touch-up within the first 6 months but no sooner than 8 weeks. 

 

Come to your appointment with your eyebrows filled in the way you like them (optional) & bring your eyebrow pencil with you.
