All of the procedures performed at our Willow Tree Body and Skin Care adhere to strict OSHA standards for Blood Born Pathogens and all artists are certified yearly through a required blood born pathogens class and exam. Any materials-sterile needles, sterile gauze, sterile water, that touch the open skin during the procedure, are always safe, sterile and disposable. Strict sanitation and sterilization guidelines are followed in accordance with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). We use exclusively single use sterile microblading pens with each application and the entire unit is disposed of and replaced with each procedure and each new client. Our pigments are all made from approved compounds; non-organic & mineral based. These are formulated specifically for permanent cosmetic use and are not the same as tattoo ink.
When proper sterilization and sanitation guidelines are followed, permanent cosmetics are completely safe. Permanent cosmetic procedures are very safe as long as you go to a reputable place following all recommended safety precautions, however, it is important to remember that no procedure is risk-free. The health risks associated with permanent cosmetics and tattooing are very slight when appropriate disinfection and sterilization techniques are used. We assure you a clean and safe environment and equipment for your procedure.
