IS IT PAINFUL?
No. Semi Permanent makeup is not completely painless, but is generally not perceived as pain. Thanks to our skilled techniques and anesthetic creams there is minimal discomfort. Every client is different, some will feel a slight poke or scratching and some will feel nothing at all.
HOW SAFE IS IT?
The art of tattooing and permanent makeup have been practiced for centuries. All the pigments that we sell are cosmetic grade, meaning that they are sterilized and purified for cosmetic use. Clients should advise their service provider if they plan to undergo laser treatment, Botox, dermabrasion, peels, etc. MRIs do not present a problem with Luxe Ink products.
ARE THERE RISKS?
As with any procedure where topical ointments or anesthetics are used, risks may occur if the patient is allergic to certain ingredients, such as lidocaine. Most clients however, would know if there have been any previous reactions before, such as during routine dental work. Other risks may have to do with the technician’s level of expertise or experience. For example, a fanning or bleeding of color may occur if the technician does not know how to hold the machine or needle properly. A client consultation and medical history form is obtained first, to discuss any known allergies or questions ahead of time. It’s also a good time for the technician to explain the process in general, and to secure a signed release before performing any patch tests prior to the procedure. The most common complaints are aesthetic in nature. Be sure the client approves of the shape, thickness and color prior to starting. The second most common complaint is fading of the color, or color changes. Be sure to receive proper training on how to prevent this. Obtain recent certification.
HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU REPEAT THE PROCEDURE TO GET GOOD COLOR RESULTS?
Proper training and experience is the best guarantee of success. Until your techniques are perfected, ALWAYS follow your guidelines, and work slowly and precisely. Let the client’s skin tell you when it’s had enough! Don’t overdo it. If you see the skin swell and bruise, STOP! They will appreciate a rescheduled touch-up instead of damaged skin.
