Who Should Avoid Lip Blush ?

Get The Facts | MLA Staff

While Lip Blush is great for most people, there are some people who are ineligible for Lip Blush. The following is our list of contraindications:

Without Exception


Individuals under 18 years of age

It is our policy at Microblading LA not to work with individuals under 18 years of age, even with a consent form


Women who are pregnant or nursing 

As the body is going through hormonal changes, it is more prone to infections (this is rare but not worth the risk) and that's the reason we don't preform any semi permanent makeup treatments  


Individuals who are allergic to nickel

We use a tiny needles that contain some nickel so allergy to nickel can be a show stopper 


Individuals with any kind of skin condition on or near their eyebrows

Unfortunately, having eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis or any one of these skin conditions may compromise the surface and texture of the skin. Semi permanent makeup preformed on skin with these conditions may have sub par results


Individuals who are allergic to makeup or colours

Although extremely rare, if you do have an allergy to pigments you should avoid semi permanent makeup as pigments are part of the ink we are using


Individuals prone to keloids

Unfortunately, since semi permanent makeup punctures the skin there is always a risk for people that are prone to keloids to heal with keloids scaring


Individuals who used Accutane within the last year

Since Accutane alters this skin and makes it thin, dry, and sensitive. It also weaken your immune system. For those reasons you'll need to wait a 6 months to year after your Accutane treatment is completed and your skin is back to its normal state.


Individuals with Bleeding disorder 

If you have a bleeding disorder, the semi permanent makeup treatments can lead to excessive bleeding and prevent proper absorption of pigment.


With Doctor Note or Clearance


Individuals undergoing chemotherapy

We would require a doctor’s note in order to perform the treatment for anyone undergoing chemotherapy.


Individuals that have any uncertainty regarding their pre-existing conditions

Please consult with your doctor before booking an appointment 


Based on Individual Cases  


Individuals that are prone to cold sore 

If you are prone to cold sores, lip blushing may result in an outbreak and cause loss pigment. You must take anti viral medication 48 hours prior to treatment, to prevent an outbreak.


Individuals with a dark lips or prone to hyperpigmentation 

In some cases we can not work over dark lips or people prone to hyper pigmentation. Due to the hyper pigmentation getting darker. We ask anyone with dark lips or prone to hyper pigmentation to send us an email with a picture of their bare lips and surrounding area of their lips with no makeup on, so we can evaluate.


Individuals with a dark pre-existing permanent makeup 

The tattoo or permanent makeup must be light enough for us to work over. We ask anyone with a previous permanent makeup to send us an email with a picture of their permanent makeup with no makeup on, so we can evaluate.


Individuals who are allergic to lidocaine or epinephrine 

Our most used anesthetic is lidocaine and epinephrine so if you are allergic to it, we will not be able to use it during the semi permanent makeup treatment; however, in some cases you will still have an option to proceed with treatment but without a numbing agent.
