This form provides information about microblading, which involves the application of permanent makeup. You are encouraged to carefully review the information provided to make an informed decision as to whether to undergo the microblading procedure. Microblading involves the insertion of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin and is a form of tattooing. Initially the color will appear more vibrant or darker compared to the end result. Within a few weeks the color will fade 20-30%, soften, and look more natural. The pigment is semi-permanent and will fade over time and will likely need to be touched up within 9-18 months. All instruments that enter the skin are disposable & disposed of after each use. Cross contamination guidelines are carefully adhered to.
Skin quality, skin care routine, UV and environmental exposure as well as abidance of aftercare instructions are all major factors in outcome of microblading and permanent makeup. centail skin types are not ideal candidates for microblading; Oily skin, very dry skin, large pores, mature skin, & frequent tanners may experience color migration in which the strokes make widen and blur as well as a color change in the deposited pigment. Our bodies contain natural foreign body fighting components, their job is to surround and break down foreign substances and implants in our body. They cannot easily break down and disperse large particles and tend to spread them out under the skin. This results in hazy & widely healed strokes. It is each individual's immune system response and is beyong LUXX, and the cleints, control. Generally, the results of microblading are excellent. However, a perfect result immediately following initial procedure is not a realistic expectation & it is usual to expect a touch up after the healing is complete.
Please note: With microblading, the results are a very natural fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker but fade significantly over a two week period. It is imperative to have a touchup. It is very difficult to predict how well your skin will retain pigment or how it will heal. Due to this and many other various factors, we cannot guarantee your individual results but will do our best to please each client. Individual results may vary. Refunds are not offered at any time, for any reason.
Possible risks, hazards, or complications:
PAIN: There is a possibility of pain or discomfort even after the topical anesthetic has been used. Anesthetics work better on some people than others.
INFECTION: Although rare, there is a risk of infection. The areas treated must be kept clean and only freshly cleaned hands should touch the areas. See "After Care" sheet for instructions.
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. Adjustments may be needed during the follow up session to correct unevenness.
EXCESSIVE SWELLING OR BRUISING: Some people bruise and swell more than others. Ice packs may help, and the bruising and swelling typically disappear within 1-5 days. Some people don’t bruise or swell at all.
ANESTHESIA: Topical anesthetics are used to numb the area to be tattooed. Lidocaine, Prilocaine, Benzocaine, Tetracaine and Epinephrine in a cream or gel form are typically used. If you are allergic to any of these please inform me now.
ALLERGIC REACTION: There is a possibility of an allergic reaction to the pigments or other materials used. You may take a 5-7-day patch test to determine this.
The alternative to these possibilities is to use cosmetics and not undergo the microblading procedure.
