*Booking Conditions and Contraindications* PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING
Our goal is to ensure that you receive the best results from your treatment. To achieve the best results, your skin must be healthy, strong, and non-irritated.
Unfortunately, not all clients are good candidates for permanent makeup due to their compromised skin condition or pre-existing medical conditions. If this is a concern of yours, we offer consultations at no charge and any concern can be discussed in person!
Symmetrically Beautiful by Salina does offer patch testing if you are concerned with allergies with any products used. Patch tests must be completed PRIOR to your appointment and at least 24 hours passed to ensure no allergies are present.
If you have any of the below conditions, you may not retain color well and may not be a good candidate for the permanent makeup procedure. Consultation prior to booking an appointment is recommended if you have any concerns!
