IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR PERMANENT COSMETICS
In general, the best candidates for permanent makeup are:
* In good physical health.
* Psychologically stable.
* Accepting of any limitations as discussed with clinician.
* Realistic in their expectations for the outcome.
* Unhappy with conventional makeup because of allergies to cosmetics, skin disorders, lack of time, or for other reasons.
BE SURE TO:
* Tell your clinician about any allergies you have (foods, drugs, environmental elements).
* Tell your clinician if you have a history of bad scarring, such as keloids.
* Tell your clinician about all medications you are taking (both prescription and non-prescription).
* Carefully follow any instructions your clinician gives you regarding eating and drinking, smoking, vitamins & after care.
* * *The above is only a partial list of the criteria that your clinician will consider in determining whether or not this procedure is appropriate for you.
Follow all of your clinician's instructions - - before and after the procedure - - to avoid complications.
Lifetime Cosmetics would like to offer these guidelines to help you select a reputable permanent cosmetics or electrolysis professional.
These are some things you should be informed about beforehand that will make your experience a safe and positive one.
We encourage our clients, and perspective clients, to ask questions.
Being informed and knowledgeable about your treatment, and the person providing those treatments, is very important to us!
