Some other important tips to consider are...

  • YOU SHOULD PLAN FOR YOUR PROCEDURE...  Be sure to read the PLAN AHEAD & AFTERCARE pages because there are things you can
    do that will HELP set you up for a more successful procedure. These tips help some people... Our job, is to put the art in your skin. YOUR
    JOB is to take care of it. But please realize, that our recommendations are just tips to help. We cannot guarantee how each person will
    heal. And remember, that some people will heal well when they do nothing at all, and other people will not heal as well, even if they play it
    by the book.

  • KNOW THAT MASKS & GLOVES KEEP THE ARTIST SAFE, NOT YOU (WHEN USE INAPPROPRIATELY)!  
    Unless your new Microblading Tech or PMU Artist has been trained extensively in controlling cross contamination in their previous field...  I
    am almost 100% SURE that this person will be focusing MORE on getting your brows on straight,  than on controlling CROSS
    CONTAMINATION. Especially if they just took an abbreviated 2-3 day training course! (Which are popping up everywhere I might add). The
    bottom line is this, people are not USED to having to control blood borne pathogens. They just have not practiced LONG ENOUGH TO
    FORM GOOD HABITS! So, you must make it YOUR responsibility that your artist sterilizes your face before going to work!  Make sure that the
    artist does not touch any surfaces with CONTAMINATED GLOVES. Make sure all touchable surfaces (mirrors, drawers, phones, cabinets,
    buttons on the chair, etc) have all been taped off with barrier film.  I've seen some horrific scenarios, even with some seasoned
    "professionals", where contaminated surfaces were just ignored. IT HAPPENS ALL OF THE TIME!  I've even witnessed artists break down
    the contaminated trays and remove protective film with their bare hands when cleaning up, then grab their purse and head out of the
    convention center where they trained... Seriously??? Why wear gloves in the first place if you're not going to take care of your client's health
    and well being?  It's even worse than when you see a food service person touching everything in sight with their gloved hands, then serving
    your food!  Doesn't it boggle the mind when you think about it?  So think about it!   If you see any other than disposable or autoclaveable
    tools, goods or supplies on your set up tray, ESPECIALLY PIGMENT BOTTLES! If you see your artist pick up their phone with a dirty
    glove, if you see your artist do anything that makes you wonder - RUN!   AND BE CAREFUL OUT THERE. HEPATITIS IS REAL.

  • GET AN ALLERGY SKIN TEST.
    Tests are not mandatory but are recommended to be administered at least one week prior to your procedure. But it is up to YOU to
    schedule your allergy test in advance of your procedure. When you show up for your first session, you will be required to sign that your
    test was successful, or you will be required to sign a waiver that you declined testing.

  • WE REALIZE THAT YOU CAN FIND A BETTER DEAL...
    And price doesn't necessarily dictate the degree of talent one has, but many people who just took a 2-3 day course are still charging
    professional rates. The sad truth is that ANYONE can pick up a tool and write on your face. But make no mistake, Permanent Makeup is not
    an easy thing to do....  if you want to do it well.
    Especially EYEBROWS! One hair will make or break your look. Even for an artist, it takes a lot of practice. AND MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT
    ARTISTS. So do yourself - AND YOUR FACE - a favor and ask to see ALL the pictures in their camera, not just their favorites they post on
    line. Some brows are not a challenge at all, while others take a great deal of manipulation to create something beautiful. We will show your
    our pics!
Thank you for your
interest in Permetika!
We are proud to say that
people who come to here
normally experience
beautiful end results.
We
do our absolute best to
create work that stays, the
first time, but the truth is
this: Some people are
lucky and things look
great after just one
session - while others
will require more work.

YOUR outcome depends
on SO MANY variables,
such as:
What is your
overall health like? Are
you 20 with flawless skin
or 80 with problematic
skin? Is your skin oily or
dry? Do you have medical
conditions that may
interfere with the
process? Did you START
SUPPLEMENTS ON
TIME? Did you limit your
diet and exercise routines
before your session and
continue for at least 2
days - 2 weeks after?
What medications are you
on? What levels of
perfection do you expect?
...just to name a few.

This is complex
procedure. I cannot
always promise
perfection, but DO I have
a great track record of
delivering some pretty
AWESOME results!          
Thank you Dominique! It was such a pleasure working with you!
And to everyone else, please know that YOU will get the same level of care and attention!
Permetika has consistently been creating realistic looking brows and beautiful permanent makeup since 2002!
WHY: Many plastic surgeons will recommend this supplement prior to surgery. It promotes
faster healing with  less trauma to the skin, and promotes faster healing. REMEMBER . . .
Faster healing means better color retention!

HOW: Take as directed on bottle. These are sublingual pills (not the cream) that are to melt
under the tongue.  

WHEN:  Start taking this supplement about 2 weeks prior to a procedure, and continue
Arnica Montana will help prepare the skin for a better procedure.  I have noticed drastically
less trauma and redness to be present when people take this advice. If you think this is not
important, you can expect more inflammation and redness post procedure.

GNC or any Nutrition Store.

WARNING:  DO NOT TOUCH THESE PILLS WITH YOUR FINGERS! These bottles
are designed to twist and dispense 1 pellet at a time into the cap. When 5 have been
dispensed, just pop them from the cap, under your tongue. If you want to know why,
you can learn about it by Googling it...
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR PERMANENT MAKEUP?
In my opinion, if you wear makeup for any reason, you should consider having this done. Does it mean that you will never have to wear
traditional makeup again? The answer to that question is a broad as there are people on the planet. The truth is, to some it will provide enough
coverage, while others want more. But don't want to wake up to Saturday Night brows, every single morning. So we take it to the level where
it's most comfortable to you.

Just understand that it is better for permanent makeup to fade OFF, than to fade UGLY!  The darker and deeper the procedure, the longer it will
last... but that's not always the best plan.

Great Candidates include:
  • Women who are allergic to traditional cosmetics.
  • Those who have lost motor skills and can no longer apply their own makeup.
  • Busy people, who have limited time.
  • Any woman who struggles to keep her makeup in place.
  • Athletes, garnders, swimmers... who want to look good, but not totally made up.
  • Men and women who suffer from scarring, especially on the face.
  • Women who have had mastectomies or breast augmentation surgeries.

You are NOT a candidate if you present any of the following conditions, disorders or
diseases.
Please, don't ignore these risks.  Every scenario plays out differently from person to person... just because it didn't
happen to YOU does not mean it won't happen to your friend, mother, or sister.  And just because it didn't happen before, does not guarantee that it
won't happen NEXT time. Better safe than sorry, and Less is More... are two of my favorite sayings!

  • Diabetes..... Slower healing creates a higher risk of infection. If under control, a letter from your doctor stating so is required.
  • Glaucoma.... Pressure placed on the eye during an eyeliner procedure could create further damage to the eye.
  • Hemophilia, sickle cell anemia, platelet or other blood disorders.
  • Pregnancy. Procedure should be postponed until after the baby has been born and you are no longer nursing.
  • Keloid or Hypertrophic Scarring. Those with tendencies toward this type of scarring may also have that risk with tattooing.
  • Heart conditions, Uncontrolled High Blood Pressure, Poor general health.
  • Any treatment, medication, or illness that compromises the immune system / healing would make you NOT a good candidate for
    micropigmentation procedures.

The following need special attention prior to any cosmetic tattooing services:
  • Mitral Valve Prolapse, Artificial Heart Valves, Artificial Joints or any condition that requires prophylactic antibiotics before dental or other
    procedures, You will also need to take the same antibiotics prior to micropigmentation as well.
  • Use of certain Medications. Accutane / Retin-A, topical steroids can make skin fragile. You must be off of Accutane for one year and off of
    Retin-A for at least a month or two prior to a procedure.
  • Any medications or treatments that affect the dermal layer of the skin, CAN affect permanent make-up. Doesn't mean it will, you just have to
    be willing to understand the risks involved.
  • OTC medications or treatments that only affect the epidermis and are not of much concern.
  • Anticoagulants (blood thinners), use of Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and even some herbs reduce clotting time, which may result in increased
    bleeding and bruising. Avoid blood thinners for at least a few days prior to your procedure. IF PRESCRIBED BY A DOCTOR - YOU MUST GET
    CLEARANCE TO STOP TAKING MEDICATIONS.
  • Lips that have been injected with fillers may not hold color well and may result in color migration!   Whether the filler is Restylane,
    Juvederm, Liquid Silicone... all can cause migration or feathering - and the lip color could creep up above the lipline if the filler was placed
    within months before lip permanent makeup application.
  • There is typically not a problem if the lip filler is injecter AFTER the permanent makeup has completely healed.  However, the injector
    may add a tiny bit too much filler and cause the lips to become uneven. THEN you would want to compensate with more color... and
    you now know what that means. FEATHERING...  
  • Lips that have been injected with liquid silicone, may risk disruption due to stretching and pressure applied for the permanent lip
    color. Loss of liquid injectable silicone may occur, and all risks associated with free silicone applies if this happens.
  • Lip implants may become infected if the lips aquire an infection. The mouth is full of germs and saliva will contact all the open holes
    made by the tattooing.
  • Herpes Simplex. People who get fever blisters or cold sores are highly prone to an outbreak after lip procedures. AYou will need to consult
    with your doctor and get an antiviral prescription to be taken. Half of the course should be taken prior to the procedure and the remainder
    taken following the procedure.

Question:  What does a unique blend of hairline strokes fused with just the right amount
of shading combined with the perfect balance, symmetry and elegance, produce?

Answer:  THE MOST REALISTIC LOOKING BROWS IN TOWN!
Our techniques offer a look SO REAL, it will be hard to tell the difference from our strokes, and your hair! And
each design is as unique as you are!
This is especially wonderful for people who have lost definition through the ageing
process or who have lost their brows due to alopecia, thyroid or other auto-immune disorders.  
Whether the technique is
called Microblading, 3D, Brow Shading, Brow Embroidery,Brow Feathering, or Dimensional Brows, it matters
NOT! Just know that our work is designed to look REAL!
  
WE NEVER APPLY EXECESSIVE COLOR, IN HOPES THAT THINGS WILL MAGICALLY FADE BACK INTO PERFECTION.
We will NOT push the skin to reality, it could delay healing time, allowing even more color to escape – or it could end up holding way too
much color – or possibly even causing excessive scar tissue.
A tale-tell sign of permanent makeup is showing up as one flat, odd color. In order to combat that, most sessions are done using a target
color that compliments your skin tone and lifestyle. We will also pick an opposing color, along with a highlight and lowlight color to add
further dimension, so things remain looking as natural possible, as they fade.
For your safety, and peace of mind… all first sessions are done with deliberate intentions of layering in just enough color to form a nice
LIGHT foundation to build on…There will be a few lucky people who retain 70-90% of the color. There will be a few who will LOOSE 70-
90% of the color… Everyone else falls somewhere in the middle. To my knowledge, there is nothing anyone can do to change that ratio.
Experience certainly does factor in, but even experienced artists, will have clients healing mostly  TOO LIGHT or TOO DARK. I opt for
too light, with the intention of layering in more color in subsequent sessions.
Next, you should know that there are LIMITS to what permanent makeup can do for you. Every person’s skin responds differently to the
art applied in it. Some pigment is rejected and some is left undisturbed. MOST people heal with satisfactory + results and very few have
regrets. Because worst case scenario (with a conservative approach) results are still BETTER than not having it done at all.  It’s just that
some expectations are too high, and may fall short of the desired results.
In the end, our techniques try to create the most realistic, natural look for you, in a methodical manner that allows for adjustments along
the way with an end result being a realistic, natural looking WORK OF ART!

Permetika's motto is... “Slow and steady wins the race“!
And this race begins with a VERY CONSERVATIVE approach. Because of the many variables, skin types and
personal habits that can have an affect the outcome of Microblading and Permanent Makeup, you should view
this as a process, not a one-time procedure!  

So the MAIN goal of SESSION #1 will be to lay down a nice foundation of LIGHT  color and work on getting the
perfect SHAPE for YOUR FACE!  This shape migth heal in beautifully, with little need for improvement - or - it
could heal in much to light, with very little color retention! Please understand, that this approach protects the
clients who will ultimately hold a lot of color!  

PLEASE BE ADVISED that certain people are more resistant to holding color well, than others. If you fall into one
of the following categories, you may not experience the same results as someone else.

  • NATURAL REDHEADS
  • PEOPLE WITH OILY SKIN
  • AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS
  • MEDICAL CONDITIONS
PLEASE REMEMBER... After one visit, you will see SOME improvement!
But the entire course of treatment is not finished until AFTER you have 3 Sessions.  
Some artists only recommend 2 sessions. But I find that our conservative start requires
three in most cases.

WHY? Because taking BABY STEPS allows us to see how strokes and color (artwork)
heals IN YOUR SKIN... This makes future adjusts easy, with minimal scar tissue. And I
FEEL that this plan better ensures OPTIMAL RESULTS by the end of the treatment. But it
is important to understand this from the beginning, so you have REALISTIC
EXPECTATIONS...

AFTER BOOKING
Please read the following
pages at least 2 weeks in
advance to prepare!
It may help you to understand, that follow up procedures necessary to provide the next LAYER in the picture...
It's NOT just a "fill in the bare spots" kind of treatment. It's not a fast appointment and that is why we charge for
it.
Follow up visits can take as long (or longer) than the initial appointment. I realize that this may not be how other companies
do it, but I've found it to be the best way to achieve a more realistic work of ART. This plan WORKS well for anyone who is
concerned about their face.
THIS IS SKIN - not canvass. You have to baby it. And even if you baby it, it will lose some
color!
And even those who end up holding well, NORMALLY come back with a few scratched off spots.... Yes, this is a fairly
long PROCESS. Progress in made in small increments.

So please think about this first, THEN book and appointment wth the intention of completing the process. If you don't, you may
not be happy with just one session, because we DELIBERATLY work lighter on the first session to protect people who will hold
a lot of color.
ARE CONSULTATIONS AND TESTING MANDATORY? NO... If you have read the material on this website, can agree to (and will
proactively follow) the pre and post care protocols, and if you feel that you have a crystal clear understanding of the process,
AND you are confident enough in our abilities, then consultations are not mandatory.

Basically, this website covers almost every aspect of what to expect and how to plan for a procedure. There is a lot
to digest, which is why I have elected to fill my site up with so much information. Consultations in person though, will help you
gauge the personality of our company and find our if we are a right fit FOR YOU!  

ALLERGY TESTING:  Most people will not be allergic to pigment. But we feel that if we test, we could help ONE person avoid an
ordeal, then we have done a huge service. So anyone with skin sensitivities, ARE encouraged to schedule a test. You should
also know that a negative reaction now, does not mean you won't develop a reaction to pigment at a later point in time. But this
too, is also extremely rare.

Unable to attend the class? ...just call us to set up a time to arrange a time to stop by for a quick 10 MINUTE TEST. BE SURE
to read over the PLAN AHEAD and AFTERCARE pages at least 3 weeks prior to your procedure.
You will need to learn how to
prepare yourself in the weeks prior to & after your procedure!

PLEASE NOTE:  ON OUR CONSENT FORM, THERE IS A SECTION THAT DOCUMENTS THE DATE OF TESTING AND
WHETHER THE TEST RESULTS WERE POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE.  IF YOU DECLINE TESTING, YOU MUST SIGN A WAIVER
STATING THAT YOU WERE OFFERED TESTING, BUT DECLINED. Whoever is at the office is qualified to perform this
simple test.  Testing must be scheduled at least one week (7 days) prior to your appointment and you will need to
take it upon yourself to schedule the test at least one week prior to your procedure.

IT HELPS TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT ON A
DAY WITH NO STRICT TIME RESTRAINTS IF AT ALL
POSSIBLE.  
A CERTIFICATE DOES NOT MAKE AN ARTIST.  It takes a heavy investment in time and
effort to perfect any craft. Especially when tattooing one's FACE! I feel its only fair to offer you a
bit of knowledge that I recently stumbled onto. There is a company offering A BASIC
TRAINING CERTIFICATE for completing a FOUR HOUR COURSE. Just know, that you do
have "options" out there. If you're looking for a better deal, you will definitely find them.

But please don't fall victim to flashy advertising UNLESS they can back it up with amazing work
that they can PROVE is theirs. Ask to see ORIGINAL PHOTOS on their camera, because some
work stolen and being played off as their own. You know there are some unscrupulous people that
just don't care about you. Just be careful and choose an artist who can back up thier word with
quality work.
