"Its only a little procedure, you won't need a patch test"
Sensitivity testing for pigments can cause controversy in the permanent makeup industry, simply due to the fact that it is possible for the skin to develop a delayed allergic reaction to pigment even though the initial test proved negative.
However, a reputable and responsible technician should provide a patch test to all new clients regardless, not only to cover all bases, but also because insurance companies insist on it - even for the smallest of beauty spots.
If a technician is fobbing off the need for a pre-procedure patch test, you need to ask yourself - what other rules do they break?
In fact...do they even have insurance at all?
Micro Art LDN will always insist on providing a patch test for the Biotek pigments and numbing agents used, either via direct application at consultation or via a spot plaster.
