CONTRAINDICATIONS

While permanent makeup is great for most people, some individuals are not suitable for these treatments. Please read the following carefully to evaluate if you are a good candidate as they apply to all of our permanent makeup procedures.

INELIGIBLE WITHOUT EXCEPTION

Individuals who are...

  • under 18 years of age, even with parental consent.

  • pregnant or nursing - as the body is going through hormonal changes, it is prone to infections; your skin may change and results can be unpredictable

  • prone to keloids - since permanent makeup punctures the skin, there is always a risk for people that are prone to keloids to heal with keloids

  • using Accutane - Accutane alters the skin and makes it thin, dry and sensitive; it also weakens your immune system

    • for these reasons, you'll need one year after your Accutane treatment ​is completed to get any permanent makeup procedure

Individuals with...

  • epilepsy - it is unsafe to undergo treatment in case of a seizure

  • pacemakers or major heart problems - we use epinephrine as a numbing agent which can increase your heart rate causing dysrhythmias

  • viral infections and/or diseases, lupus, or have undergone an organ transplant

    • the risk of developing an infection is higher in people with compromised immune systems

  • any skin condition on or near the treatment area like eczema, dermatitis, rosacea or psoriasis - these skin conditions may compromise the results, surface and texture of the skin

  • allergies to metal and colorant - we use small needles and pigments that can contain some metals and colorant

ELIGIBLE WITH DOCTOR NOTE & CLEARANCE

Individuals that have any uncertainty regarding their pre-existing conditions, or are under the supervision of a physician, please consult with your doctor before booking an appointment and provide us with a doctor's note.

Individuals undergoing chemotherapy... once you're cleared from your oncologist we can book your appointment. Be sure to have your note ready at your appointment.

Individuals with...

  • diabetes - it is important that your condition is stable and under control; please consult with your physician and provide us with a doctor's note at your appointment.

  • thyroid condition - the color of your brows can fade faster when taken with certain thyroid medications

  • glaucoma - the risk of developing an eye infection is higher

  • high blood pressure - your blood pressure has to be at a stable condition as you may bleed more than the norm

    • excessive bleeding during the procedure can dilute and expel the pigment color and lead to poor results​

ELIGIBLE BASED ON INDIVIDUAL CASES

Individuals with...

  • dark pre-existing tattoos - the tattoo or permanent makeup must be light enough for us to draw hair strokes or add shading

    • If this pertains to you then please send us a clear photo of your current bare brows to (781) 222-3515 or ​our email (click) so we can evaluate.

  • allergies to lidocaine or epinephrine - our anesthetics have lidocaine or epinephrine so if you are allergic to them we will not be able to use it during the procedure​

    • However, you still have the option to proceed without any numbing agent.

  • sun-damaged skin - it can result in poor pigment retention

  • prone to cold sores - our lip blush procedure may result in an outbreak and cause loss of pigment​

    • You must start taking antiviral medication 48 hours prior to your treatment in order to prevent a breakout and it must be prescribed by your doctor and NOT over the counter​.

Before booking, please also read the Before Care and Aftercare instructions to make sure you can follow them before committing to the procedure.
