Health Department requirement and what to look for when choosing a facility.

Looking your absolute best is an investment. Like any other investment, it takes time and research. Errors and unsafe practices can cause irreparable damage.  Because there are more permanent makeup practitioners than ever before, here are some key points to consider when deciding to whom and where to trust your face.

  • Ask questions. We cannot emphasize this enough.  Even if the facility appears superficially clean, you need specifics.  If the practitioner is evasive or cops an attitude, head out the door.
  • Request to see a county health department permit. This is mandatory and guarantees the facility is following basic guidelines. This regards health and safety only – not the creative process or skill.
  • A facility permit is mandatory. Many places do not have this, especially micro blade practitioners in nail salons and threading studios where practitioners just rent a room and operate independently. Because this permit is costly and the facility must comply with regulated floor plans, plumbing, and electrical work, many operations just ignore this and try to go unnoticed.  The health department only gets involved when there is a complaint and an investigation can take months to complete.  If the facility is properly registered, there will always be an annual inspection.  This ensures they continue to comply with all laws and procedures for consumer safety. If the facility does not have a permit from the local health department please report them to prevent them from damaging consumers. If they are located in Los Angeles country you can contact them there: as well as be readying more details about the requirements.
  • The technician needs to be registered with the health department and take an annual online bloodborne pathogen training course. Ask the technician to show you for the certificate and check that it is current.
  • If a facility or technician operate unlawfully, liability insurance companies will not honor a claim (that is if they even have liability insurance).
  • Ask to see their “Infection Prevention Control Plan.” It outlines the requirement set by the local health department. This document is about 20 pages and outlines the facilities sanitation process.
