PREGNANT AND/OR NURSING MOMMIES
Though every possible measure is taken to ensure the prevention of infection and cross-contamination, the risk of infection still looms for any and every client that may be considering a tattoo. Should an infection occur on a pregnant or nursing mother as a result of a microblading or tattoo procedure, the complications that might arise as a result of the infection outweigh the benefits of receiving the procedure itself, as the infection would not only affect the client, but also the client’s fetus/baby. The risks involved simply are just not worth it. Please schedule your appointments once you are done breastfeeding!
Diabetics are at high risk of infection due to the nature of Microblading (where the artist makes several small cuts into the skin to deposit pigment). In addition, diabetic patients are often on blood-thinning medications such as warfarin or coumadin. Because we as tattoo artists are not medical professionals, we have no right to ask any client to discontinue their prescribed medications. It is important for any diabetic patient to have a candid conversation with their physician about whether or not this service is right for you. Patients with type 1 or 2 diabetes unfortunately will be turned away from receiving services at Brows By Katrina LLC. Other artists might accept clients with diabetes with a doctor’s clearance.
This includes, but is not limited to: lupus, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, etc. Unfortunately, the microblading healing process would be compromised by these conditions and by the medications prescribed as a result of these conditions. Patients that are diagnosed with such autoimmune diseases unfortunately will be turned away from receiving services at Brows By Katrina LLC. Other artists might accept clients with autoimmune diseases with a doctor’s clearance.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, HEART CONDITIONS, PACEMAKER PATIENTS
It is not recommended for anyone with heart conditions to get any form of permanent makeup done, as doing so would put you at an incredibly high-risk of infection. Those with heart complications are often on medications that thin the blood, which in turn will cause excessive bleeding. As stated earlier, tattoo/microblading artists are not medical professionals, therefore we have no right to ask any client to discontinue their prescribed medications in order to receive our services. Patients with HBP or existing heart conditions/diagnoses unfortunately will be turned away from receiving services at Brows By Katrina LLC. Other artists might accept clients with HBP/heart conditions with a doctor’s clearance.
TAKING PRESCRIBED BLOOD THINNING MEDICATIONS
Medications such as warfarin, coumadin, etc, that have been prescribed to you by your physician for a health concern should not be discontinued just to receive services. If you are on regular, prescribed blood thinning medications, you should refrain from receiving any permanent makeup services.
SCHEDULED SURGERY(S) IN THE NEXT MONTH
Pre and post op surgeries almost always require patients to be on a number of medications and antibiotics for an extended amount of time. These medications may disrupt the healing process, leading to discolored and undesired results. Please wait until your surgery(s) are complete and you are through with your pre/post-op medications before scheduling an appointment.
TENDENCY TOWARD KELOIDS
If you are prone to keloid scarring then you should absolutely avoid any permanent makeup procedure. Artists can not guarantee that you will heal without a keloid scar no matter how light-handed they are in their technique. Clients prone to keloid scarring unfortunately will be turned away from receiving services at Brows By Katrina LLC.
(IN THE LAST YEAR)
Accutane is an oral medication used to treat cystic acne. The medication causes the skin to become incredible fragile, not allowing the skin to receive or heal microblading gracefully. Brows By Katrina LLC will only accept clients that have been off of Accutane for a minimum of 1 year.
EXTREMELY OILY &/OR
This includes complications on the face only, such as extremely oily skin, large, visible pores in the eyebrow area, eczema, psoriasis, keratosis pilaris, dermatitis, chronic acne, and rosacea. Due to the nature of these complications, the risks involved include:
higher risk of infection
poorly healed results
blurry healed results
discoloration of pigment during the healing process
skin is unable to retain pigment
Some clients that have extremely oily skin might be better suited for a powder brow as opposed to microblading, should they have no other skin complications. If this applies to you, please email email@example.com to initiate a consultation.
ACTIVELY PURSING CHEMOTHERAPY &/OR RADIATION
Cancer patients that are actively pursuing aggressive treatment can not receive Microblading services from Brows By Katrina LLC until treatments are complete.
Lidocaine & epinephrine are active agents in anesthetics used during our procedures, and are inevitable. Our blades and cartridges are made of stainless steel and are also inevitable. Please do not book an appointment if you have allergies to any of the aforementioned, as you will be refused service at Brows By Katrina LLC.
