Am I a Good Candidate for Semi-Permanent Makeup?

  1. Skin Complications - If you have skin which is prone to complications with eczema, psoriasis, keratosis pilaris and dermatitis (i.e., your skin is constantly flaking, itching, or aggravated), chances are your skin is in a constant state of unrest and shedding and is not suitable for tattooing and therefore won't hold the pigment.

  2. Chronic Conditions - The same goes for conditions like chronic acne and rosacea. The inherent nature of the type of skin causes easy bleeding, which once again means the skin will not retain the color very well and intended effect of blading/shading. Additionally, excessively oily skin can cause those tattooed hair strokes to blur together and give off an unwanted solid effect instead feathered look.

  3. Sunburn/Sun Tan - It's best to wait until your skin has resumed its normal colour and wait until your skin has healed before booking in for a procedure.

  4. Keloid Disorder - There is a chance of developing scars after the procedure.

  5. Accutane/Retin-A - Individuals who have been taking acne medications such as Accutane or Retin-A within the last year have an altered skin condition that will not heal well after the procedure. It is very important to wait from 6 months to a year before tattooing the skin.

  6. Other Conditions - If you are pregnant, nursing or have heart condition, it is NOT recommended that you get any form of permanent makeup done.

  7. Botox - You will need to wait at least 3 weeks after Botox or Fillers before microblading or microshading in order to allow the Botox or Filler to settle in at its full effect.

  8. Vacationing - Any kind of Semi-Permanent Makeup is a tattoo and therefore is a mild injury to the skin which takes time to heal. If you are planning to go hot vacation involving sun, sweating, and swimming, make sure you give your skin 2 weeks to heal.

The results of Semi-Permanent Makeup will be based on the health and quality of your skin. Results may vary from person to person.
