Other contraindications

  • AHAs (lactic, glycol citric, retinoid, and tartaric acids) or any OTC (over the counter) creams and lotions for tone correcting, anti-aging, and exfoliating can fade and discolor your permanent makeup.
  • Flu or Cold: Please stay home and reschedule your appointment if you have a cold, flu, or sinus/respiratory infection.
  • Coumadin: Amount of bleeding and response to topical epinephrine will determine coverage per application. If excessive bleeding occurs, extra appointments/applications may be necessary for desired outcome or procedure may not be effective.
  • Juvederm or other “fillers”: Get permanent makeup first or ask your juvederm tech for clearance.
  • Shingles: If you have shingles on your face, wait several months for it to clear before permanent makeup.
  • Eyelift or blepharoplasty: Wait about 3 months.
  • Microblading on oily skin: With this kind of skin type the pigment shades easily and after healing strokes are faint. Microblading cannot be performed on people who have oily skin. This procedure can leave visible marks (scars) in oily skin because this skin type is a contraindication for this procedure. Also, oily skin tends to regenerate more quickly than other skin types, so it will cause fading.
