Care Information

This section is designed to address all your queries about micropigmentation and medical tattoo services. From understanding the procedures to aftercare advice, this resource provides comprehensive insights into what to expect before, during, and after your appointment.

Results and Expectations

The outcome of healed results varies from client to client, as the healing process is influenced by many factors beyond our control. We highly recommend at least two sessions to achieve the best possible results. In some cases, it may be necessary to have additional touch-ups.‍

All risks and uncertainties associated with the processes involved in cosmetic and medical tattooing are acknowledged and understood by the client through the consent form before booking an appointment. If, at your appointment, it becomes evident that the client does not fully grasp this concept and there is noticeable uncertainty or an impression of impulsiveness, we reserve the right to decline the service. In such instances, the deposit will not be refundable.


A touch-up session, recommended 6-8 weeks post-procedure for optimal results, is optional and not included in the initial service. This is advised for all new permanent makeup and medical tattoo appointments.

Additional charges will be applied if your touch-up session is scheduled later than 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure. The touch-up is available only for Roberta Peixoto's existing clients. Non-clients must attend the initial session with Roberta Peixoto.

Cover-up and Previous Procedures

If you've had previous tattooing in any area and are considering a cover-up or touch-up, please email us a clear photo before scheduling your appointment or consultation, virtual or in-person. In cases where the existing tattoo is too dark, dense, faded, or extensive, we may recommend removal before proceeding with the cover-up or touch-up.

Consultation and pre-approval are required for any work by other professionals, regardless of the area.


If any of the following conditions apply to you, tattooing may not be possible or you might need to seek your doctor's advice before booking an appointment.


* Under 18.
* Pregnant or breastfeeding.
* Diabetic.
* Taking blood thinning medication.
* Any heart condition.
* An autoimmune disorder or difficulty healing.
* Undergoing Chemotherapy.
* Allergies to Lidocaine and/or Benzocaine.
* Botox injections 1 month before in the area you are getting the procedure.

In addition to the previously mentioned restrictions, we have some extra and specific conditions for the areas listed below.


* No botox injections in the treatment area for 1 month before the procedure.
* No retinol products in the eye area for 1 month before your appointment.


* No lash extensions are allowed during your procedure and for 21 days afterward.
* If you wear contact lenses, you must remove them for your appointment. * No retinol products in the eye area for 1 month before your appointment.


* No lip fillers 1 month before the procedure and 1 month after the touch-up.
* It is necessary to take acyclovir at least 3 days before your appointment and continue for 3 days afterward. This measure is taken to prevent inflammation and the appearance of cold sores after the procedure, even if you have never experienced cold sores before.


* Technique can be performed only 1 year after surgery.
* For all medical tattoo techniques, initial consultation (virtual or in-person) is required before booking the procedure.


Keep your permanent makeup looking great with proper care. While their longevity, typically 1-3 years, depends on various factors like ink type and procedure, aftercare is key.

Post-Treatment Expectations (72 hours)

* Tingling, tenderness, swelling, redness, flaking, and itchiness are normal as your skin starts healing, usually lasting up to 72 hours. Over-the-counter pain relief can help.

First Week (7 days) Aftercare for Cosmetic Tattoo

The first week is critical for healing and achieving the best results for your permanent eyebrows. Here's what to do:

* Ointment Application: Use the healing balm provided or recommended by your practitioner 2-3 times daily with clean hands and a fresh cotton bud each time. Apply sparingly; your skin needs air to heal. Follow your practitioner's advice on ointment use.

* Avoid Scratching: Itching is a normal part of healing. Don't scratch or pick at the treated area to prevent scarring, infection, and color issues. Let any flaking happen naturally.

* Skip Makeup and Products: Only use the healing balm on your tattooed eyebrows. Other products can cause infections or reactions.

* Face Washing: Avoid getting the tattooed area wet. Cleanse your face carefully, avoiding the eyebrows. If they do get wet, pat dry gently.

* Keep Hair Away: Pin back any hair or bangs to prevent infection in the tattooed area.

* Protect from Sun: Use large sunglasses or a hat to shield your eyebrows from the sun. Avoid sunbeds and activities that cause excessive sweating.

Proper care during this initial phase is essential for a lasting, beautiful cosmetic tattoo. Remember, the color will lighten to the desired shade after healing.

First Three Weeks:

* By three weeks, your permanent makeup or medical tattoo should heal nicely. During this time, avoid sunbeds, direct sunlight, swimming pools, salt water, and direct shower spray. Washing your face is okay with cool water, and you can let your fringe down without worry.

Touch-up Appointment:

* Expect and schedule a touch-up appointment 6-8 weeks after your initial treatment to check color and shape. Your practitioner might touch up your procedure to fix any unevenness or patchiness.

Long-Term Care for Your Permanent Makeup or Medical Tattoo:

* Avoid Sunscreen and Anti-Aging Creams: These products can affect the longevity and appearance of your tattoos.

* Skip Certain Skin Treatments: Steer clear of treatments like chemical peels, facial scrubs, laser rejuvenation, and microdermabrasion near the eyebrow area.

* Inform Professionals: Whether you're seeing a beautician for a skin treatment or a doctor for a medical procedure like an MRI scan, make sure to mention your eyebrow tattoos.

These simple steps can help maintain the sharpness and color of your permanent makeup or medical tattoo, ensuring they look great for as long as possible. For any questions about aftercare or our services, don't hesitate to reach out.

Healing Process

The healing process in micropigmentation is a crucial phase that plays a significant role in the outcome of your treatment. It's important to understand that the final results can vary significantly from person to person due to many factors, including skin type, aftercare adherence, and individual healing responses.‍

While meticulous technique and high-quality pigments are used, it's impossible to guarantee specific results. How your skin retains pigment, reacts to the procedure, and heals over time contributes to the overall appearance of the micropigmentation.‍

Proper aftercare is essential to support the healing process and maximize the longevity of the treatment, but even with perfect care, individual results can still differ. It's this unique interplay of factors that makes each micropigmentation journey distinct.

Allergy Testing

Allergy tests are required only in cases of known severe metal sensitivity. If needed, the test must be conducted at least 48 hours before the appointment.

Additional Information

Will the procedure be painful?
Pain is subjective, but most clients experience minimal discomfort thanks to effective numbing. Sensitivity levels vary, so some might feel slight discomfort.

What if I have existing work from another artist?
If you have previous tattoos, we must evaluate them to provide the best advice and achieve your desired outcome. Please get pre-approval by scheduling a virtual consultation or sending a natural light photo through our contact page.

Is a touch-up necessary?
Yes, touch-ups are crucial for fine-tuning and extending the life of your tattoo, given the unique response of each individual's skin and the superficial nature of the tattoo. Touch-ups, not included in the initial cost, should be scheduled 6-8 weeks after your first appointment.

Will my semi-permanent makeup eventually vanish completely?
While semi-permanent makeup does fade over time, complete disappearance isn't guaranteed. The rate of fading varies per individual, influenced by factors like lifestyle, skin health, skincare product use, and age. Regular refresh sessions are advised to maintain the appearance, with most tattoos lasting 1-3 years before needing a touch-up.

Can I get multiple procedures done in one day?
Absolutely! It's totally possible to mix and match procedures in a single visit, and it often helps pull your whole look together. Just give us a heads up when you're setting up your appointment, so we can ensure we have got enough time blocked off just for you.
