ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR THE HAIR-STROKES BROWS?

 

BEFORE SCHEDULING YOUR THE HAIR-STOKE BROWS, PLEASE READ THROUGH EACH OF THESE QUESTIONS! 

In order for me to determine if you are a good candidate for the “Hair Stroke” procedure, I will need you to understand some information contradictions.

 

Is your skin oily?  Or severely oily?

The hair strokes will appear more blended, solid or not retain at all.

 

Have you ever had permanent makeup on your eyebrows before?

To be able to do the Hair-stroke Brow on clients with prior work, the existing Permanent Makeup must be SUPER faded out (at least 80%) with NO GRAY UNDERTONES.  Orange is okay.  GRAY MUST BE REMOVED.  ASK ME HOW.  It can be done.  If you’re not willing to have it removed, please don’t waste my time – I’m sorry to be direct.

 

Do you have large pores on your forehead & in the brow area?

Pigments will blur/blend in large pores looking powdered

 

Do you use exfoliants, such as heavy scrubs, Retin A, Retinol products or Clarisonic brushes?

Skin appears shiny. This skin type bleeds excessively and will not retain pigment well, if at all. Need to be off for a minimum of 30 days.

 

Are you pregnant, nursing, or trying to get pregnant?

No Exceptions

 

Do you have any scars or experienced any head trauma in the brow area?

Scar tissue will prevent proper healing.  I suggest Micro-needling the area first if needed, to break down the scar tissue.

 

Deep wrinkles in the brow area?

The Hair Strokes will not lie properly in the creases, giving the brow an uneven look.

 

Heart Conditions/Pace Maker/Defibrillator (No exceptions)

 

Do you have Alopecia? – (Hair loss due to autoimmune disease)

Hair strokes will appear more blurred or blended, less crisp.

 

Do you have or have you had a piercing in the brow area?

Scars can cause the pigment to migrate.

 

Extremely Thin skin?

Transparent or Translucent or very vascular.

 

Fitzpatrick Skin types 1 (red heads/white skin/light eyes)

Due to hypersensitivity, the skin does not retain pigment well.

 

Do you have moles/raised areas in or around the brow area?

The pigment will not be put into anything raised.

 

Are you addicted to exercise?

When doing the Hair-stroke procedure, you MUST reframe from cardio exercise, swimming, getting “hot and sweaty” for TWO WEEKS.  Your pigment will not retain.

 

Do you experience frequent Hot Flashes?  

You may have difficulties with pigment retention.  Powdered Eyebrow would be a better option.

 

Do you have Trichotillomania?(Compulsive pulling of body hair)

Due to constant pulling, scar tissue is prominent and pigment will not heal properly.

 

Do you have Eczema, Psoriasis or Dermatitis in or around the brow area?

Constant flaking/itching/irritation/shedding of skin.

 

Have you had a hair transplant for your eyebrows?

Pigment will not take in the scar tissue where the plugs were placed.

 

Do you have a thyroid condition and taking medication for this condition?

Hypo, Hyper Thyroidism, Graves Disease, Hashimoto’s – your pigment may not retain well.

 

Have you been on Accutane (acne medicine) within the last year?

 

Auto Immune Disorder of any kind (MS, RA, Lupus or the like)?

Due to the medications to treat these diseases, the pigment will not retain well, if at all.

 

Are you taking any of the blood-thinners medicines or vitamins listed below:

(NO FISH OIL, VIT E, ASPIRIN, IBUPROFEN 2 WEEKS PRIOR)

 

Do you have uneven eyebrows – one sits noticeable higher than another.

You may not be a good candidate for any brow procedures unless your brows are more balanced.

 

Do you have a lazy lid eye?

This condition could cause your balanced and symmetric eyebrows to appear unbalanced.

 

Do you have or have you ever be diagnosed as Bi-Polar, Personality Disorder, Obsessive

Compulsive Disorder or Mental Illness?

You will NOT be a good candidate for ANY Brow or Permanent Makeup procedures.

 

Do you have exceptionally high expectations or high standards?

Though I have exceptionally high standards in my daily practice of applying permanent makeup, periodically I will meet a client whose expectations and standards are not reasonable for us to work together comfortably.

 

THESE CONTRAINDICATIONS CAN ALSO PRESENT LATER IN LIFE.  FUTURE PROCEDURES MAY NOT BE PERFORMED. 

 

IF YOU HAVE ANSWERED YES TO ANY OF THE ABOVE QUESTIONS, YOU ARE UNFORTUNATELY NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE HAIR STROKE EYEBROW TECHNIQUE.  YOU MAY OPT TO DO A NICE SOFT POWDERED LOOK. (SOLID).

 

IF YOU ARE NOT TRUTHFUL IN ANSWERING THE ABOVE QUESTIONS AND WE SCHEDULE YOU AN APPOINTMENT AND FIND OUT THAT YOU ARE NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE, YOU WILL BE BILLED FOR THE APPOINTMENT TIME & FORFEIT ANY DEPOSIT PAID.

 

CAROLYN HAS HER REASONING AS TO WHY SHE CHOOSES NOT TO WORK ON CLIENTS WITH THE ABOVE MENTIONED CONTRAINDICATIONS. 

THERE ARE TECHNICIANS THAT WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND RUN, CAROLYN IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

IF YOU ANSWERED NO TO ALL THE QUESTIONS PLEASE PROCEED TO SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION BY CALLING OR TEXTING TO 805-550-7379

THANK YOU, SINCERELY.

 

Other important requirements to consider:

  1. Exercising:

Do not exercise the morning of your appointment.  You will bleed excessively.

Also, If you work out regularly (5-7 days a week), your eyebrows WILL fade very fast due to the production of salt/sweat. Salt is used to remove permanent makeup.  They WILL appear more powdered or blurred under the skin as well. If you are not ok with this, then you should not have the procedure done. Carolyn reserves the right to refuse future services if she feels the results won’t be to the client’s satisfaction.

  1. Tanning/Sun-Exposure:

You cannot have tan 30 days before, nor after your procedure.  SUN will cause the results of your Permanent Makeup to fade quickly or not retain at all.  Carolyn will cancel your appointment if your show up with a tan (a tan to Carolyn’s standards).  Tanned skin bleeds excessively, heals poorly and therefore, will not retain color.  Deposits are forfeited.  No exceptions.

This is an investment in your face and Carolyn takes that very seriously.
