Shear Bliss Salon & Spa
The following medical conditions require special consideration before permanent makeup procedures.
I am not saying all of the clients with these conditions should not get permanent makeup.
I am suggesting that they contact their physician to determine if it will be safe to have a permanent cosmetic procedure.In some cases I will ask for a physicians release statement.
* Diabetes. Healing could be compromised and take longer than average. Special care should be taken to prevent infection.
* Glaucoma. Increased intra ocular pressure combined with pressure placed on the eye to apply eyeliner could be damaging. It is important to have this condition under control and/or refer to your physician for further consent to the application of eyeliner.
* Bleeding disorders. Blood disorders that affect clotting such as hemophilia, sickle cell anemia and platelet disorders could interfere with the implantation of pigment, however it is possible to receive successful implantation of permanent cosmetics.
* Mitral valve prolapse, artificial heart valves, artificial joints. Any person that requires prophylactic antibiotics before dental or other procedures will need consult their physician for treatment prior to permanent cosmetics.
* Herpes simplex. People who get fever blisters and/or cold sores may experience an outbreak after lip procedures. It is imperative that you discuss the procedure with your physician BEFORE the procedure and receive proper instruction on how to prevent an outbreak post procedure. Should an outbreak occur after pigment implantation you very well could lose the pigment in the area that you get a sore. The result is uneven lip color or lip liner
* Pregnancy and or breast feeding. There is never a reason to compromise the health of a child. I do not know of any known or documented risks that these procedures pose to a unborn or breast feeding baby but I am not willing to take that risk, so, I will postpone your procedures until you are no longer in this condition.
* Keloid or hypertrophic scarring. Persons with tendencies for this type of scarring have the same risk with tattooing also. The risk is mainly in the torso area, however, we may decide together to do a patch test to insure that you do not scar in this manor.
* 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 are not of much concern. Anticoagulants (blood thinners), long-term use of aspirin, ibuprofen, and some herbs reduce clotting time resulting in increased bleeding and bruising, which will affect the implantation of pigment as well as increase the healing time.
* Heart conditions, uncontrolled high blood pressure and poor general health would be of special concern, you will need to see your Physician and discuss the procedure to gain preapproval.
* Any treatment, medication or illness that compromises the immune system and or healing would NOT make you a good candidate for micro-pigmentation procedures.
* Lips that have been injected with fillers. These may not hold color well.
Enjoy A Day of Bliss!!!
