4 Tips to Prevent a Complication from Becoming a Problem

4 Tips to Prevent a Complication from Becoming a Problem

Authored By Dr. Cardona 2 Comment(s)
 
This week I chose to write on this topic after I received an interesting case to evaluate.  It made me realize that tips to keep a complication in a permanent makeup or microblading procedure from becoming a larger problem would be valuable to share.
 
The permanent makeup procedure involves many factors that are important for you to know how to handle. One of the most important elements is the client, since personal feelings, perceptions and emotions drive their assessment of the final result.
 
Remember that you are working on the skin, a living tissue which interacts with each of the elements involved in the procedure and this is something that your client must also understand.
 
The permanent makeup complications that I have seen most frequently are related to:
  • Infection of the treated area
  • Chemical or bacterial conjunctivitis
  • Herpes labialis
  • Trauma, bleeding, bruises, and inflammation
  • Pigment migration
  • Mishandling of products which are intended remove pigment
  • Allergic reactions
  • Healing problems
  • Dissatisfaction with shape or color
  • Poor retention or lack of pigment implantation
 
Most complications that arise can be resolved right away. However, it is important to be careful with resolutions that can lead to the need for a more drastic correction, or worse, a permanent negative result.

 

How to prevent these from becoming a problem:

 

 
Such claims include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:
 
  • One eyebrow ended up higher than the other, when they had always been this way
  • Eyelid spots, generated by the sun and were present pre-treatment;
  • Small vessels in the conjunctiva that become inflamed which are actually varicose veins.
  • In the reverse, some clients claim to notice no difference, when in reality the change is quite dramatic.

 

In the reverse, some clients claim to notice no difference, when in reality the change is quite dramatic.

Remember some people perceive color slightly differently, so the photographs must show the actual result.
 
Complications in permanent makeup, regardless of the products and technique used, are part of the practice. When they are handled correctly and with confidence, they will make your practice more successful.
 
I hope that these recommendations will help you minimize the risk of complications and, when they present themselves, you are able manage them in the most appropriate way.
