Medical Considerations

The following medical conditions require special consideration before permanent makeup procedures. Clients with any of these conditions should contact their physician to determine if it will be safe to have a permanent cosmetic procedure. In some cases the cosmetic tattoo artist will ask for a physicians release.

  • Hemophilia
  • Hepatitis A,B,C,D,E,F – contact me
  • HIV-positive
  • Herpes Simplex. People who get fever blisters / cold sores may experience an outbreak after lip procedures. Antiviral prescription should be taken
  • Keloid or Hypertrophic Scarring. Persons with tendencies for this type of scarring have that risk with tattooing also.
  • Epilepsy
  • Conjunctivitis, Glaucoma. Increased intraocular pressure combined with pressure placed on the eye to apply eyeliner could be damaging.
  • Allergies – contact me
  • Taking of coagulation-inhibiting or blood-diluting pharmaceuticals or pharmaceuticals against menstrual cramps
  • Taking certain prescription drugs/Consult the prescribing physician/
  • Diabetes. Healing could be compromised, higher risk of infection. – contact me
  • Infectious disease
  • Skin blemish in the area of pigmentation/eczema, warts, melanoma/
  • Immune system desease
  • Chemotherapy or radiation – contact me
  • Heart conditions, Uncontrolled High Blood Pressure, Poor general health.
  • Under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Lips that have been injected with fillers may not hold color well. Restylane injected superficially near the lip edge has caused migration or feathering to occur along the lip line if the Restylane was placed within months before lip permanent makeup application. There has not been a problem if the lips permanent makeup is healed first, then the lip filler injected second. However, the person that injects the lip filler might cause the lip edges to become uneven if even a tiny bit more is shot into one side. You would have to compensate with topical lip liner.
