Pregnant but want PMU? The information you want to know!
Aside from possible liability issues, the main concern with permanent makeup during pregnancy is the risk of contracting an infection such as HIV and Hepatitis B.
🤰🏻There is little to no research regarding the effect of pigment on the body of a pregnant woman and her unborn baby. Chemicals such as iron oxides and titanium dioxides could be harmful towards their development.
🤰🏻The use of numbing creams, especially those containing epinephrine could affect the development of the unborn baby, potentially causing cardiac abnormalities.
🤰🏻Due to fluid retention, pregnant women may experience facial swelling which may alter the appearance of the tattoo after pregnancy.
🤰🏻Hormonal fluctuations may cause facial skin to darken (especially for those with Melasma) and clients may experience hyperpigmentation in the procedure area.
🤰🏻Hormonal fluctuations might also cause a client to bleed more, retain less color and take longer to heal.
