To achieve the best results, your skin must be healthy, strong, and non-irritated. Unfortunately, not all clients are good candidates for permanent makeup due to their compromised skin condition or pre-existing medical conditions.

If you fail to disclose any of the skin conditions / medical conditions / medications, you will have a poor outcome and further touch-ups to improve the results will be at an additional cost or treatment may be declined.
