If you arrive over 15 minutes late, a $25 deposit will be required to reschedule another consultation or appointment afterwards. The $125 will be applied toward any procedure of choice.

Do not bring items of value to any appointments:
Permanent Makeup Artist and her Associates will not be held responsible for any personal items damaged or missing.
Due to the artistic and detailed nature of this service, guests are NOT permitted in the procedure room during your treatment to avoid disrupting the artist. Young Children are NOT permitted in the studio during a consultation or permanent makeup procedure.
We require a consultation, and medical screening by questionnaire to assess whether a client
meets the criteria to be a Permanent Makeup candidate. Not everyone is eligible due to
health-related issues, age related issues, medications they may be taking, condition or
nature of their skin, certain prior permanent makeup procedures etc... A 24-hour patch test is strongly recommended (a 24 hour spot test using pigment behind the ear to identify individuals who may develop an immediate allergic reaction to pigments) before taking new clients.
Allergies are typically rare. You may choose to waive your patch test but in doing so you will not hold Permanent Makeup Artist or her Associates liable for any reaction that you may have during or after said procedure. You also understand that allergic reactions to pigments may appear years later.
The Consultation is free of charge; after appointment, should you decide not to move forward with a procedure, the $125 fee is refunded. If you wish to continue, your deposit will be applied towards the balance of desired procedure. Client acknowledges and specifically disclaims any responsibility to Permanent Makeup Artist or their Associates for any adverse reaction to the application of pigments or topical anesthetics. Initial aesthetic consultation may be done in person or in some cases over FaceTime.
An accurate price quote is given. Clients are never pressured to schedule a procedure. In fact,
all procedures should be carefully considered before scheduling them. This quote is good for 4 months. After 4 months, a new consultation will be required & prices may change.
Cold Sore Medications: Prescribed Viral Medication is encouraged for any Lip or Eyeliner procedure...If you have any history with viral infections such as cold sores, herpes simplex, fever blisters, mouth ulcers etc… You are encouraged to contact your Physician to obtain the proper prescription medication i.e. Valtrex (1000 mg per day), Aclovier, Tamoclovier, Famier, Lysine, Zoverax) 7 days prior to & after your procedure. to help prevent outbreaks due to pigment implantation stimulation prior to procedure. This is also true for those who have never experienced such outbreaks as any procedure can trigger dormant virus’s (although it is optional if you have never had any before). This is for any type of Permanent Makeup – not just lips. We may be able to refer a Doctor to prescribe these medications to you.
Botox & Fillers: Should be done no less than 2 weeks prior or after Procedure.
Dental Work: If you are having any Lip procedures, have your dental work done prior to the procedure or wait until 10 days after.
Electrolysis & Skin Peels: Should not be done within 5 days of the procedure. Do not pluck, tweeze or wax brow areas at least 24 hours prior. Do not resume any method of hair removal for a week after the procedure.
Latisse (aka Eyelash or Brow growth serum) or any Similar Products…
May not be used for 6 months prior to a procedure and 3 months after. These products may cause pigment to migrate and become blotchy.
Pregnancy: If you are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant,you are NOT eligible for Permanent Makeup during this time to avoid risk of infection to baby! Breast-Feeding must be finished 6 months before you may have any procedures.
Compliance: All procedures shall be performed in strict compliance with all hygiene and health protection measures. All needles & supplies used to perform procedures are sterile and disposable. It is our guarantee the Permanent Makeup Artist is professionally trained and licensed.
Photographs: Photographs are required (before and after) for private record of procedure progression by Permanent Makeup Artist. If allowed, permission to use said photographs for online purposes and in office examples is appreciated.
Artist / Client Interactive Process:
The Permanent Makeup Artist will work directly with the client during the process at all times. That means you will have input on the color, shape and outcome as the appointment proceeds. While we will attempt to deliver your desired results, it is understood that Permanent Makeup procedures are of an artistic nature and no final result is guaranteed.
PERMANENT MAKEUP IS MOST ALWAYS A 2-STEP (SOMETIMES 3) PROCESS!
Plan to return for a 6-8 week follow-up for your final color implantation, size & shape.
The first visit we discuss ideal colors, shape and style. Christina will approach your first
session CONSERVATIVELY to ensure that you will be satisfied with your long-term results.
The second session will involve more specific detail to the procedure. We want you to look like you - only better!
- THE DAY OF YOUR PROCEDURE -
Take No Stimulants:
Avoid aspirin, coffee, energy drinks, green tea, smoking, vitamins, herbs, salty food, etc… anything that will stimulate blood flow 24 hours prior to your procedure. Stimulants increase blood pressure thus enhance bleeding which pushes pigment out of the skin.
Do not wear contact lenses to your procedure. Make sure to bring eyeglasses if needed. Also should you drive, sunglasses are a good idea to bring in case of swelling or bruising. After any Eyeliner procedure, your eyes will feel like you have had a good cry for a couple of hours.
Selecting Colors & Shapes etc. :
The discussion with your Artist/Technician will be interactive. We will discuss colors and shapes & styles before, during and after your procedure. Selection will involve what compliments your skin tone best, and what areas of the face are deemed best for shape
which also includes a technique called "mapping" in some cases. It is important that you are comfortable during the sessions and you are encouraged to ask any questions you may have.
The Session time:
Permanent Makeup is relatively painless. You will get topical numbing creme that must
penetrate for about 15-20 minutes. Once the procedure begins, a secondary numbing agent is added to the open skin and the procedure should feel mostly like a toothpick scratching the skin a little. Most people report they cant feel a thing and a few even fall asleep! Most Sessions last about 1 to 1.5 hours per site location.
The color chosen WILL be a slight larger, bolder and brighter than your desired results, it may also look a bit blocky temporarily as it heals these colors MUST be 30 to 40% stronger as the finished healed result takes place in COMBINATION with your skin tone. Much like wax paper provides a softened filter over a shade of color, your skin does the same thing as it is healing and even after.
