Topical Anaesthetic Form
Allergic reaction can occur from any anaesthetics used during the procedure. If you do suffer from an allergic reaction you should contact your doctor immediately. Allergic reaction response may display redness, itching, swelling, a rash, blistering, dryness or any other symptoms associated with allergy.
We cannot accept responsibility if the treatment area does not numb. Each individual is different according to the skin type. Some clients have reported that the area is totally numb while others say they experience some discomfort.
For all procedures a cream or gel topical anesthetic is used. These products are perfectly safe, and can be purchased over the counter from any chemist. The anaesthetic is placed over the treatment area for 10-30 minutes then carefully removed prior to treatment.
As a result of the treatment, combined with the use of the anaesthetic you can expect to experience swelling and redness that could last between 1-4 days. You should always follow your postprocedure instructions.
For Eyeliner procedures you will be asked to keep your eyes closed throughout the numbing procedure. If for some reason the anaesthetic gets into the eye you must inform the technician at once. It is not harmful to the eye although you will experience some stinging and slight discomfort. The cream will be removed and your eyes immediately flushed with a sterile saline solution. It is then safe for the technician to re-apply the anaesthetic.
NOTE: If you experience stinging in the eyes and do not inform your technician immediately, the anesthetic may numb the eyeball, and a possible corneal abrasion may occur. This can result in temporary streaming and light sensitivity of the eyes. You may be unable to open your eyes and each time you do it may be painful, and temporary blurry vision may occur. Corneal abrasion however is rare. If you experience any of these symptoms, inform your technician and visit your doctor immediately.
