• Pain: There can be some pain even after the topical anesthetic has been used. Anesthetics work better on some people than on others.
• Infection: Infection is very unusual but can happen, if at any point the area treated becomes tender to the touch, red, oozy, etc., you should contact a health professional immediately. The areas treated must be kept clean, and only freshly cleaned/sanitized hands should touch the areas. See “After Care” sheet for instructions on care.
• Uneven Pigmentation: This can result from poor healing, infection, bleeding, or many other causes. Your follow-up appointment will likely correct any uneven appearance.
• Asymmetry: Every effort will be made to avoid asymmetry, but our faces are not symmetrical so adjustments may be needed during the follow-up session to correct any unevenness.
• Excessive Swelling or Bruising: Some people bruise or swell more than others. Ice packs may help reduce the swelling, and swelling or bruising typically disappears in 1-3 days. Many clients do not bruise or swell at all.
• Anesthetics: Topical anesthetics are used to numb the area to be tattooed. Lidocaine, Prilocaine, Benzocaine, Tetracaine, and/or Epinephrine cream and/or liquid are used. If you are allergic to any of these, please inform us immediately.
• MRI: Because pigments used in Permanent Cosmetic procedures contain inert oxides, a low level magnet may be required if you need to be scanned by an MRI machine. You must inform your MRI Technician of any tattoos or permanent cosmetics.
• Allergic Reaction: Although an allergy is unusual, there is always a possibility of an unknown allergy to the pigments and materials used during your procedure.
The alternative to these possibilities is to use traditional cosmetic and NOT undergo the Semi-Permanent Eyebrow, Lip Blushing, Eyeliner, Or any other semi permanent makeup procedure.
