-Anticoagulant, Thyroid, and other medications may cause pigment to fade quicker.
-Retinol/Retin-A must be discontinued 7 days prior to procedure. (It will cause the skin to bleed).
-Injections (Radiesse, JuvaDerm, Voluma, etc.) must be done 2 weeks before or 8 weeks after procedure. Injectables around eyes or forehead (Botox, etc.) must be almost completely worn off prior to any eyebrow procedure.
-Chemical peels/laser treatments may not be done within 60 days before or after procedure.
-The use of Latisse® or similar lash serum must be discontinued at least 3 months prior to your eyeliner procedure (it creates an inflammatory response, causes excess bleeding and prohibits the eyeliner from healing well).
-Sunburned or Suntanned skin is damaged skin and therefore will cause excessive bleeding. We cannot work on sunburned or suntanned skin.
You cannot expose the area to the sun for 30 days before or after procedure.
-Do not schedule this procedure within one week prior to a water vacation.
-Stay out of steam rooms, saunas, hot yoga, swimming pool, etc. for one week following procedure.
-Avoid working out or sweating for 1 week post procedure. (sweat will prevent pigment from healing into the skin)
-Avoid alcohol and caffeine 1 day before procedure to minimize any oozing, bleeding or swelling.
-Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen, niacin, fish oil or vitamin E 3 days prior to procedure unless medically necessary.
All Permanent Cosmetics procedures are multi-session processes. An initial application is incomplete until after a perfection touch-up appointment, which must be scheduled approximately 6-12 weeks after your initial appointment. There is a $50 charge for the touch-up appointment after your initial application as long as it is performed within 12 weeks of the initial application (this excludes tattoo removal and corrective work which are priced per procedure).
While your skin heals, be prepared for the color intensity of your procedure to be significantly larger, sharper, or darker than what is expected for the final outcome. This is a normal and expected result of the application and healing process.The healing process will take a number of days to complete, depending on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates and new skin regrows to take its place.
Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly or redden, some clients feel it best not to make social plans for a day or two following any procedure. Wear your normal makeup and bring your lip or brow pencils with you the day of the procedure.
Please be aware that in order to ensure we choose the right color pigment, we may need to remove any foundation or concealer you are wearing to see the true undertone of your skin. You may choose to bring your makeup to touchup after your procedure.
In order to provide all of our clients with great service and the best experience, our policies are as follows:
IN THE PROCEDURE ROOM: Though a friend or family may accompany you to your appointment, we have learned it is best that they do not sit-in on your procedure. It is important the artist is able to have their full focus on you, the client. Friends and family tend to be a distraction for both the client and artist.
CHILDREN, TODDLERS AND BABIES: Though we love children, we must kindly ask that you do not bring them with you to your appointment. Unfortunately, they are a distraction to the artist, as well as the other guests having services at The Archery. Thank you for your understanding.
OUR POLICIES: Permanent cosmetics is a time-intensive service. In booking your appointment, we are reserving a designated amount of time specifically for you. We require a credit card on file and a $100 deposit in order to reserve this time for your appointment. If you need to cancel for any reason, we require that you cancel at least 48 hours prior to the start of your appointment time so that we may be able to offer this time to another client. If your appointment is cancelled/rescheduled with less than 48 hours notice you will be charged 50% of the price of your scheduled service. If you no-show, you will be charged 100% of the price of your scheduled service. The Archery does not offer monetary refunds on services rendered. Any adjustments/corrections can be made during the Follow-Up appointment. Fees may apply.
Perfection touch-up appointment: There is a $50 fee for a 6-8 week perfection touch-up appointment. However, in the case of a cancellation with less than 24 hours’ notice or a no-show, the follow-up is considered forfeited and any following appointments will be charged as a touch-up appointment.
TARDINESS: In the event that a client is more than 30 minutes late, the procedure may be cancelled, and the full service fee will still apply, as we are not able to sell this time to another client.
RIGHT TO REFUSE TREATMENT. Though it is extremely rare, we reserve the right to refuse treatment for the following reasons:
Undisclosed skin condition (including sunburn/suntan)
Under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Any behavior which, in the opinion of the artist or The Archery, might compromise the artist’s or The Archery ability to work safely and comfortably toward the desired results, or might disrupt other clients.
