Booking Policies

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!  We truly appreciate you for taking the time to pre-educate yourself on OUR UNIQUE STYLE  because REMOVAL is painful, time-consuming, expensive, and completely avoidable with the Permetika Approach.  Learn why we are different so you will UNDERSTAND and AGREE with our philosophy that LESS IS BEST.  Most permanent makeup artists are trained to apply a little extra color in anticipation of color loss that happens throughout the healing process. The problem with this approach is that SOME people tend to hold almost all of the color... then you have an UNHAPPY CLIENT walking around.  On the other hand, by just taking the procedure to the point of BEAUTIFUL, you can walk out looking normal! The downside of this approach only happens when the color does not stay, as expected. But MOST people fall somewhere in the middle.  So wouldn't you agree that of the two options, the latter conservative approach is the safest way to go?

 

  1.  BY BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT WITH PERMETIKA, YOU ARE DECLARING THAT YOU UNDERSTAND (& AGREE) WITH OUR CONSERVATIVE APPROACH.

  2. YOU AGREE THAT THIS IS DONE WITH YOUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND. WE START WITH A CONSERVATIVE APPROACH, WHICH MAY MEAN INITIAL RESULTS COULD BE TOO LIGHT. ADJUSTMENTS WILL BE MADE DURING SUBSEQUENT SESSIONS UNTIL YOUR DESIRED RESULTS HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED.  Read how to set REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS with yourself

  3. YOU ARE DECLARING THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND HAVE NO OTHER QUESTIONS REGARDING THE INFORMATION IN THE LINKS IN THE FOOTER BELOW. 
  4.  IF YOU HAVE ALREADY BOOKED YOUR PROCEDURE . . . Please be sure to return to this page to submit  your CLIENT DATA, MEDICAL HISTORY AND HEALTH DECLARATION prior to the day of your appointment. 

  5. YOU AGREE  WITH OUR OUR "LESS IS BEST" CONCEPT  AND ARE WILLING TO RETURN FOR SUBSEQUENT FOLLOWUP SESSIONS TO COMPLETE THE WORK .Please remember this...  Your skin is a biological system that is designed to rid itself of foreign matter.  We are putting foreing matter in the form of "art" into your "skin", so your body is going to do it's best to take it out.  HELP PREPARE YOUR SKIN FOR THE PROCEDURE BY TAKING ARNICA MONTANA PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.  Read the links on this page (and/or) in the footer section of this website for more detailed information like how to know if you're a GOOD CANDIDATE,  learning how to PLAN AHEADPRE-PROCEDURE TIPS, what to do for AFTER CARE.

  6. Please remember that following our guidelines does not guarantee 100% success. Bottom line, your own body has the final word on how much color with stay and how true the color heals. However, there are things we can do to help encourage MARGINALLY better color retention. Every client will have a different outcome. Just remember that shape and color can be adjusted on subsequent sessions AFTER we see how the initial session has healed in. Then we will be able to tell what color and shape adjustments to make later. 

FOLLOWUP APPOINTMENT PRICING 

Appointment pricing is for the initial appointment only. Follow-up pricing is a seperate charge. Please see our PRICING PAGE for specific details.

 

BOOKING FEES, NO-SHOWS & LAST-MINUTE CHANGES

A NON-REFUNDABLE BOOKING FEE of 50% is collected at the time of booking to reserve your spot on our calendar. This fee is required to help clients remember the importance of their appointment as all procedures & classes here do require advance preparation time. 

WHY DO WE REQUIRE A 50% BOOKING FEE?

If you cancel inside the week prior to your appointment, we have no way of filling your spot to make up for lost revenue because other clients need time to prepare. So your commitment to booking indicates to us that you understand and are committed to the process, appointment, or class that you have scheduled.

CANCELLATIONS, NO SHOWS . . . . . .  50% of Schedulued Appointment

IF YOU MUST CANCEL OR POSTPONE YOUR APPOINTMENT W/OU last minute, we split the loss 50/50. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation!

LAST-MINUTE APPOINTMENT CHANGES  . . . . . $100

We understand that last-minute conflicts in scheduling may arise for you. If this happens, and we can fit you in ON OUR NEXT AVAILABILITY, we will move your appointment and only charge $100 for missing the appointment. 

A 5 DAY NOTICE OF CANCELLATION  

This notice is required to move your appointment.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  If a 5-day notice is not given, your booking fee will be forfeited due to the loss of income on our schedule because it is virtually impossible to fill your spot. 

 

  • If you are contagious or running a fever you will need to postpone your appointment.

  • If you are on antibiotics, you should postpone your appointment for a couple of weeks to allow the medication to leave your system.  Otherwise,  there is a possibility that the treatment will not heal with optimal results. The medication is fighting to rid your body of a bug... and it may see the pigment as a potential threat, even though it's not. 

  • DURING COVID, we will do everything possible to reset your appointment with no penalty should you become ill or encounter an UNAVOIDABLE conflict in your schedule.  If you are able to come within the week or two, we try to will reset with no penalty as a courtesy to you. However, if you cancel or no show again, you will need to set a NEW  appointment online and pay a NEW booking fee.

  • Appointments are set for a normal allotted amount of time. We allow appointments to run one hour over the allotted time because we understand this is your face  - and we want things to be as perfect as you do. However, if the appointment runs longer than one hour over the appointment will be called to an end. If time allows, extra time beyond will be billed at an additional $250 per hour.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT TRUE emergencies do arise, SO IF YOU CAN SUBMIT PROOF OF A LIFE ALTERING EVENT OR EXTREME ILLNESS,  YOUR BOOKING FEE WILL NOT BE FORFEITED AND WE WILL BE HAPPY TO WORK WITH YOU!

Should an extreme emergency arise, the booking fee is still non-refundable, but the appointment date is transferrable if scheduled within a week or two.  

About our booking System:

YOU MAY BOOK HERE, or make a note of this shortcut for future use:  Vagaro.com/Permetika   

 

We think the system is pretty seamless, but if you encounter any challenges, please let us know by leaving a message on the CONTACT US BUTTON. Screenshots are particularly helpful in troubleshooting issues.

​APPOINTMENTS & CLASSES: 

  • APPOINTMENTS SHOULD BE BOOKED ON-LINE BY THE CLIENT or STUDENT.  This automated system ensures that bookings are created according to your schedule and there are no mistakes on our end.

WHEN CHOOSING A PROCEDURE

You do NOT have to predetermine which style of work you need. When you arrive, we will start the paperwork and the numbing process. Approximately 30 minutes later we will discuss your options and your input will also be taken into consideration. Once we reach a decision, the procedure will begin.

RESCHEDULING: 

  • Appointments may be transferred to a new date.

  • A five (5) day notice is required to allow time to prepare for the person filling your spot.

  • You may change your appointment as often as you need to without informing our office.  

  • Do this by searching your email for your last appointment notification. There you will find a link to reset your appointment. As always, if you need help, please contact us through our website messaging system.

  • Booking any cosmetic procedure should NOT be taken lightly.  This process requires thought and planning because it leans more toward surgery than a normal cosmetic procedure like hair, nails, or lashes.

  • Booking any cosmetic procedure should NOT be taken lightly.  We invite you to read over the information links on this page to make sure you are a candidate for the services we offer. This process requires thought and planning because it is more invasive than a normal cosmetic procedure like hair, nails or lashes. 

  • BY BOOKING THIS APPOINTMENT, YOU AGREE  WITH OUR OUR "LESS IS BEST" CONCEPT  AND ARE WILLING TO RETURN FOR SUBSEQUENT FOLLOWUP SESSIONS TO COMPLETE THE WORK AND YOU UNDERSTAND OUR RECOMMENDATIONS AND POLICIES BELOW.  

  • We look forward to working with people who understand and agree with our LESS IS MORE approach. This means less work is done upfront to give us the opportunity to evaluate how things settle in on a small scale, then build toward your desired result over a period of a few months in subsequent perfecting sessions.

  • So don't be surprised if your work is too light. This is the case for most people... This means almost no one is left with work that is too dark.  Doing this allows us to get "closer to perfection" without crossing that line of regret!  And please realize, that while YOU ARE IN GREAT HANDS HERE, absolute perfection does not exist. There will always be something to work on. You just have to be realistic about your expectations and choose not to be radical in your idea of perfection. Working in SKIN can be problematic at times, and your patience is required in order to achieve optimal (not perfect) results. ​

  • Appointments are set for a normal allotted amount of time. We allow appointments to run one hour over the allotted time because we understand this is your face  - and we want things to be as perfect as you do. However, if the appointment runs longer than one hour over the appointment will be called to an end. If time allows, extra time beyond will be billed at an additional $250 per hour.
