Pre-Procedure Advice Instructions
Please read the following advice carefully:
Cosmetic and Paramedical Micropigmentation procedures normally requires multiple treatment sessions. For best results, clients will be required to return for re-touch appointment (some may need to return more for perfecting touch-up sessions). This will take 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure. Those with oily skin may require an additional touch-up. Please be aware that color intensity will be significantly darker and sharper immediately and few days after the initial procedure. Color will reduce by 40-60%.
If numbing cream is used during the procedure, sensitivity or discomfort may still be felt. Skin may be red and/or swollen after procedure.
Do not drink alcohol 24 hours prior to the treatment.
Although extremely rare, there might be an immediate or delayed allergic reaction to the pigment.
Allergic reactions to anesthetic can occur. It is the client’s responsibility to schedule a patch test at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure. By signing this form, you have received the patch test prior to your appointment or was notified of the possible risk and dangers associated without taking the patch test associated with the application of each procedure.
