I had a beautiful female client present to me last week, she was intersted in having her eyebrows enhanced, to enable her to have more time in the mornings and not have to worry about make up and drawing on each brow.
I advised her that I always like my clients to carry out a patch test beforehand, as well as completing a medical history form to make sure that semi permanent make up is safe to carry out.
My lovely client advised that she has/does suffer from psoriasis throughout the year and has to use a steroid cream.
I explained that I would look into this and how it would work with having SPMU.
When anyone uses a steroid cream, especially around the face, this can make the skin a lot thinner over time, which means the technician needs to work extremely slowly and carefully, so as not to over traumatise the skin. It may be necessary to treat the client over three sessions, to enable the pigment to be built up slowly.
SMPU is obviously a definite No, No if the area to be tattooed is inflammed/sore/flaky.
With psoriasis sufferers, SPMU may need to be topped up more often than normal, this is all down to the clients skin.
Lastly, I would advise my client to contact their G.P beforehand with a letter of permission (I can produce) to confirm whether they agree (or not) for SPMU to be carried out on a particular area.
