Everyone asks their friends about where to to to get their permanent makeup done. So you are looking for a salon that will serve you well. What's on "your things to ask" check list?
Most clients ask about price, because they really don't know what else to ask.
So how can you be sure to avoid risk?
Maybe what you really want to know:
Is this salon a safe place, do they practice safe hygiene?
So let's talk about why, the place and the person who is doing the procedure, is so important. To be safe we really can’t emphasize enough the importance of hygiene. Properly sterilized permanent makeup equipment is essential to avoid health risks.
Is there a "tray charge" for your procedure?
This is one way that you know your equipment, and disposables are all sterile. Check that your artist using needles taken from sealed containers, and that the pigment trays are all new. All these are disposables and single one-time use. Be sure the shop has a clean equipment, for example a clean tattoo machine.
Is there a refrigerator for items that must be kept cold for your treatments?
SYSTEMS TO AVOID DISTRACTIONS
Does your artist understand the importance of working undistracted?
If your technician is distracted and answers their mobile phone during a treatment session, this is completely unacceptable. Do you know that even something as simple as taking a phone call or replying to a text message can put you at risk of infection? A microscopic bacteria could be transferred from the phone keypad to your skin, then you could be at risk. What if your practitioner decides to take a break and eat or drink something. Again this is totally unacceptable and puts your health at risk.
Look at pictures on the internet of the studio where you will have your procedure done. Look for clues about hygiene and cleanliness revealed in the work space.
Are all the surfaces in the workspace designed to be impervious and resistant to liquid spills and stains? Is there a suitable operating bench, or adjustable recliner chair with a washable surface, that is disinfected and clean. Are all client contact surfaces cleaned and wiped with an effective disinfecting sprays and wiped between client procedures to reduce the risk of cross infection? Can you see a paper roller towel system used to cover bench, or recliner chair between clients? The floors should be hard surfaces and easy to clean. There should be no carpets in the treatment areas.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Ask, "How are the counter top, table, and chairs sanitized?" Ask, "Do you use a bleach-based disinfectant?" If the shop isn’t clean, or your questions are not well receive, or you are uncomfortable, then leave.
Bloodborne pathogens are dangerous, and can contaminate all different types of surfaces. A good shop owner will appreciate a client who has done their homework and is prepared to take responsibility for their health by asking questions.
Is the studio well lit?
The technician needs to be able to see what they are doing during your procedure. You might plan to take a nap during your procedure but you want your tech very alert, aware, and wide awake.
