POSSIBLE RISKS, HAZARDS OR COMPLICATIONS

POSSIBLE RISKS, HAZARDS OR COMPLICATIONS

Pain

There can be pain even after the topical anesthetic has been used. Anesthetics work better on some people than others.

Infection

Infection is very unusual. The areas treated must be kept clean. Only freshly cleaned hands should touch the areas. See "After Care" sheet for instructions on care.

Uneven Pigmentation

This can result from poor healing, infection, bleeding or many other causes. Your follow up appointment will likely correct any uneven appearance.

Asymmetry

Every effort will be made to avoid asymmetry but our faces are not symmetrical so adjustments may be needed during the follow-up session to correct any unevenness.

Excessive Swelling or Bruising

Some people bruise and swell more than others. Ice packs may help and the bruising and swelling typically disappears with 1-5 days. Some people don't bruise or swell at all.

Anesthesia:

Topical anesthetics are used to numb the area to be tattooed. Lidocaine, Prilocaine, Benzocaine, Tetracaine and Epinephrine in a cream or gel form are typically used. If you are allergic to any of these please inform me now.

MRI:

Because pigments used in permanent cosmetic procedures contain inert oxides, a low level magnet may be required if you need to be scanned by an MRI machine. You must inform your technician of any tattoos or permanent cosmetics. from occurring.

Fever Blisters:

If you are prone to cold sores or fever blisters (herpes simplex), there is a high probability that you will get them. It is advised that you call your doctor for a prescription antiviral to help prevent this from occurring.

Allergic Reaction:

There is a small possibility of an allergic reaction. You may take a 5-7 days patch test to determine this.

What's Normal?

Swelling, itching, scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness.

Ice packs are a nice relief for swelling and bruising. Aftercare calm is nice for scabbing and tightness.

Too dark and slightly uneven appearance.

After 2-7 days the darkness will fade and once swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If they are too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks then we will make adjustments during the
touch up appointment.

Color change or color loss.

As the procedure area heals the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear. This can all be addressed during the touch up appointment and is why the touch up necessary. The procedure area has to be completely healed before we can address any concerns. This takes at least
four weeks.

Needing a touch up months or years later.

A touch up may be needed 1 to 5 years after the initial procedure depending on your skin, medications and sun exposure. We recommend a touch up 30 days after the first session (included in today's price) and every few years to keep them looking fresh and beautiful. Touch up sessions after 60 days will be $195 or current touch up rate at time of touch up.

BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR TREATMENT

Before your treatment

Prior to your permanent cosmetic enhancement think about the look that you wish to achieve. As experts in the field of color analysis and makeovers, we ensure that the correct colors and styles are chosen for you, however you are part of the decision making process.

Permanent cosmetic enhancements normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results, you will be required to return for at least one control procedure four to six weeks after the initial application.

Be prepared for the color intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become softer as the skin heals. This process can take up to fourteen days.

  • Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, you are advised not to make social plans on the day of your enhancement.
  • Please wear your normal make-up to your enhancement appointment.
  • Do not take aspirin or Ibuprofen 2 days prior to and after your enhancement.
  • A sensitivity test will be performed unless waived upon request.
  • Do not use Retin-A skincare products close to the enhancement area 2 weeks prior to and after your procedure.
  • As with electrolysis the National Blood Service does not accept donations of blood for 1 year after a permanent cosmetic enhancement.

Eyebrow Enhancement

  • Waxing treatments should be performed no less than 3 days prior to your enhancement.
  • IPL laser hair removal should be performed no less than 2 weeks prior to your enhancement.
  • Electrolysis treatments should be performed no less than 5 days prior to your enhancement.
  • Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your enhancement.

BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR TREATMENT

After Your Treatment

The area treated may show redness and swelling and that the color looks dark and intense-this is quite normal.

Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area has completely healed. A 4/6
weeks healing time is required before any more work can be undertaken. In order to let your brows heal well, avoid water on the brow area; make up to the brow area, the gym, sauna or pool for 7 days.
Once the area has healed completely, approximately one week, consider using a waterproof total sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color fading.

Strong chemicals or glycolic acid/peels of any kind may cause the pigment to lighten. Always telephone and check with your consultant if in any doubt. Do not pick or pull at the treated area, as it will result in pigment loss. You will go through three healing phases: 1. Healing, 2. Peeling, and 3. Fading.

You may notice whiteness or blanching around the area. This is quite normal and will
subside within 12 hours. If you find any lymphatic fluid or blood weeping you can gently
clean the area with saline, cool boiled water and gauze, blotting gently dry to remove
any moisture.

With clean hands and cotton pad apply a fine layer of aftercare balm to the treated area. Repeat this procedure up to 3 times a day if the area feels tight. After the fine scabbing has sloughed away you will see a different hue to the color implanted.

  • Giving Blood- The Red Cross has suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months following treatment.
  • MRI Scans- This procedure shows up as an artifact on the scan. Some clients may experience a tingling sensation. Please notify your radiologist.
  • Injectable- Dermal fillers and Botox can alter the shape of the eyebrows. The client should be advised that injectable should be carried out after a Micorblading procedure and not prior.
  • Laser/Pulsed Light- Laser or pulsed light hair removal or skin rejuvenation treatments can cause color change. It is important to advise the therapist that you have had Microblading procedure, as this cannot be rectified with another Microblading procedure.
  • Color Refreshing- To keep your new brows looking at their best, it is recommended that you have a color refresh procedure every 12-18 months.
