Microblading Consent

This form provides information about microblading, which involves the application of semi-permanent makeup. You are encouraged to carefully review the information provided in order to make an informed decision as to whether to undergo the microblading procedure. Microblading involves the insertion of pigment into the dermal layer of the skin and is a form of tattooing. Initially the color will appear more vibrant or darker compared to the end result. Usually within 7 days the color will fade 40 - 50%, soften and look more natural. The pigment is Semi-permanent and will fade over time and will likely need to be touched up within 12 to 18 months.    All instruments that enter the skin or come in contact with body fluids are disposable and disposed of after use. Cross contamination guidelines are carefully adhered to.

 

Generally, the results of microblading are excellent. However, a perfect result is not a realistic expectation. It is usual to expect a touch up after the healing is completed. Possible risks, hazards or complications:Pain: There is a possibility of pain or discomfort even after the topical anesthetic has been used.

 

Anesthetics work better on some people than others.Infection: Although rare, there is a risk of infection. The areas treated must be kept clean and only freshly cleaned hands should touch the areas.  See the “After Care” information

 

sheet for instructions on care.Uneven Pigmentation: This can result from poor healing, infection, bleeding or many other causes. Asymmetry: Every effort will be made to avoid asymmetry but our faces are not symmetrical.  Adjustments may be needed during the follow up session to correct unevenness.Excessive Swelling or Bruising: Some people bruise and swell more than others. Ice packs may help and the bruising and swelling typically disappears within 1‐5 days. 

Some people don’t bruise  or  swell  at all. Anesthesia: Topical anesthetics are used to numb the area to be tattooed. Lidocaine,  

Prilocaine, Benzocaine, Tetracaine and Epinephrine in a cream or gel form are typically used. If you are allergic to any of these please inform us now.Allergic Reaction: There is a possibility of an allergic reaction to the pigments or other materials used. You may take a 5 - 7 day patch test from your doctor to determine this.
