A patch test is necessary. You can have it at whatever host salon I am attending , which ever is nearest -usually 3-4 days before hand at soonest.
You can alternatively patch test yourself with pigment and a sterile scraping needle I supply you with - behind the ear. Patch behind each ear - one with pigment, and one with topical anaesthetic . I prefer to do it myself as I can be sure it's done correctly .
A lot of ladies waive the patch test but you need to sign the waiver in your consent form . That is an insurance requirement . If you are any way unsure I URGE you to consider a patch test for your safety .
If you have very sensitive skin, unexplained blotches/blisters following pigmented cosmetics (hennae, hair dye, eye shadow, tints, powders ) or an allergy to nickel- you are HIGHLY advised to have a patch test done with me .
Remember it is your face , and honesty revealing previous allergies is imperative .
Below is an example of a colleague whose client got an allergic reaction to either latex, pigment or the topical anaesthetic.
A doctors visit is imperative in this instance, and anti histamine treatment.
Further treatment can not continue .
