Frequently Asked Questions

  • Permanent Makeup
  • Certifications & Licenses
  • Dermaluxe Spa Policies

When finding a permanent makeup artist you never want to make a quick decision based on price or convenience such as same day appointments. It’s important to be careful when selecting a permanent makeup artist. The truth is that anyone certified in permanent makeup may not be legally licensed to perform permanent makeup. Also not all providers have the same experience and depth of knowledge.

Dermaluxe Spa is state licensed and widely respected throughout the Houston area. Our master artists have extensive knowledge and numerous certifications specializing in all permanent makeup and skincare. We believe our clients deserve exceptional work at a reasonable price.

Some discomfort may be felt during your permanent makeup procedure. Numbing anesthetics are used during the process to keep the pain minimal. Please note: Make sure you are well rested and hydrated. If you're on your menstrual cycle or about to start you may be more sensitive to pain.  You might want to consider this when booking your appointment. Make sure you are well rested and hydrated. 

Permanent makeup typically lasts anywhere from 1 to 3 years sometimes longer (permanently) depending on skin type, aftercare and lifestyle habits. Frequent touch ups may be needed for those with oily skin and certain lifestyle habits such as sports enthusiasts.

Allergies to tattoo ink or permanent makeup pigments are rare but a reaction can occur. If you have an allergy to colorants, such as those found in food or clothing, then a patch test is recommended. If you already have tattoos, minor sensitivities to makeup, or seasonal allergies, then a patch test isn't necessary. ​

Please call our studio if you are wanting a patch test. 

First-time permanent makeup procedures usually don't require a consultation in advance. We will discuss color, shape and design on the day of your appointment.

 

***If you've ever had permanent makeup done by any other provider or have any skin issues or disorders, such as severe acne, then we do require a consultation. If this describes your situation then you should know that arriving to your appointment without undergoing a consultation means we have the right to refuse service, and your deposit will be forfeited.

 

If you need a consultation then we do require you to put a credit card number on file when you book your appointment. If you come in for your appointment, the consultation is totally free. If you cancel your appointment with less than 24-hours notice or if you don't show for your appointment, then we charge you a small $50 fee to make up for our lost time.

Most of the time all permanent cosmetic procedures usually require a touch up session (perfection visit) to achieve the desired look and have lasting results.

When booking online a credit card is required at the time your appointment is made. Please make sure to keep text and email notifications on to receive updates on upcoming appointments. To ensure availability we suggest that you reserve your appointments in advance. We also have a wait-list you can add yourself to once booking your initial appointment.

 

As a courtesy to our customers at Dermaluxe Spa, we have a no exceptions cancellation and no show policy. Please provide a minimum of 48 hours notice should you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment. All appointments must be confirmed by email/text which you will receive 48 hours before. Please be aware, if you don’t confirm your appointment and we're unable to reach you, last minute cancellation, or no show a $50 fee will be charged. We make every effort to accommodate last minute appointments if and when possible and are more happy to reschedule or cancel appointments with 48 hours notice. We also advise you to be on time to your appointment. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late to your appointment we may not be able to service you and we will have to consider it a late cancellation/no show. We understand life is hectic and sometimes just plain crazy. Please call us if you think you will arrive late for your appointment.

 

If you have multiple cancellations or no-shows, then you will be required to prepay before scheduling another appointment or may be banned from further booking any appointments at our studio.

In a small business such as Dermaluxe Spa, we want to give our clients the best pricing available. Short notice cancellations and no shows are detrimental to our ability to provide a good service, low prices, and continue a profitable business. We ask for your help and cooperation in this matter. ​

Our consultations are complementary, however, because we have a limited number of consultation appointments, a credit card will be required when booking your appointment. If you come in for your appointment the consultation is free. If you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice or if you do not show for your appointment, you will be charged $50.

 

***If you have had previous permanent makeup done elsewhere or have any skin issues/disorders, then a consultation is required. If you arrive to an appointment with previous permanent makeup or skin issues/disorders without having scheduled a consultation first, we have the right to refuse service and the $100 deposit will be forfeited and a $50 dollar fee will be charged.***

 

First time tattoo and permanent makeup removal customers must book a consultation first.

A non-refundable $100 deposit is required at the time your appointment is made for all NEW permanent makeup customers. The remaining balance is due at the time of service. If you don’t confirm your appointment and we're unable to reach you, late cancellation, or no show the deposit will be forfeited and a $50 fee will be charged. 

 

We also advise you to be on time to your appointment or arrive 10 minutes early. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late to your appointment we may not be able to service you and an additional $100 deposit will be required to book your appointment. 

There are no refunds or exchanges through Dermaluxe Spa. All sales are final and pricing is non-negotiable.

Gift cards and vouchers are not refundable or transferable. Gift cards or vouchers must be present at the time of your service. Dermaluxe Spa is not responsible for any lost, stolen or unauthorized uses of the card.
