Are cosmetic tattoo procedures considered safe? Red Lotus skin and lash salon in Beaverton, OR talks about cosmetic skin tattoo's.
Yes, permanent makeup is a safe process if conducted by a trained artist that follows the proper sanitation and sterilization principles set forth by OSHA and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Oregon requires technicians to stay up on their classes in Bloodborne Pathogens and as a CPCP technician it is part of those requirements also.To ensure client safety, I use only pre-sterilized manufacturer sealed single use needles. I never open these until you are in my chair ready for the procedure. All used needles are placed directly in a Sharps container after the procedure has been completed – needles are never reused. All procedure accessories used are disposable single-use items. After each procedure the area is cleaned, disinfected and prepared for the next client. I use the latest most effective long-lasting antimicrobial technology to protect my clients and myself. Each client is give appropriate home care products and instructions to use after the treatment. It is your responsibility to take care of this fresh wound properly.
