Graduate Update Bulletin: Isotretinoin / Roaccutane

Topic: Absolute Preclusions and Medical Consent for Cosmetic Tattooing

Isotretinoin is a prescription drug marketed in Australia under the name Roaccutane and it may be prescribed for people suffering from severe acne or other forms of cystic skin conditions. Clients who are or have been taking this medication are at risk of permanent skin damage such as scarring / keloid scarring if they undergo any form of skin piercing.

Recommendation (for our graduates): Clients should not undergo any form of Cosmetic Tattooing until at least 6 months after they have ceased taking Isotretinoin and then only if they have been informed of the increased risks of scarring. A medical approval letter should be sought from any client who has ever taken even a short course of Isotretinoin therapy and once approval is obtained a test patch should be performed 4 weeks prior to the intended treatment, if any adverse skin effects are noted after the test patch then no further tattooing treatments should be provided.

Graduate Update Bulletin: Regulatory Changes

Topic: Regulatory Changes (Victoria) & Recommendations
As of the 01/01/2010 the 'Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008' and the associated 'Public Health and Wellbeing Regulations 2009' came into effect in Victoria.

For Cosmetic Tattooists the new Act replaces previous regulations under the previous Health Act 1958 and in particular we are interested in the replacement provisions previously within the following regulations.
  • Health (Infectious Diseases) Regulations 2001
  • Health (Registration of Premises) Regulations 2002
So what's new?
You should familiarize yourself with the entire scope of the new Act and Regulations but to assist you I bring your attention to some discrete changes that you should be aware of.

First of all lets raise some important points from the Act;
1 - Within the definitions The Act now specifies that skin penetration does not mean tattooing and Cosmetic Tattooing means Tattooing.
2 - The premises must be registered with the local council.
3 - Specific and general measures relating to control of infectious diseases including the provision of written information to all clients.


-----------------------------Excerpt from the Act--------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recommendations (for our graduates):
1) I suggest that you should regard all sections of the Act and regulations that apply to Beauty Therapy, Skin Penetration and Tattooing as having force and effect for Cosmetic Tattooing.

2) You should check with your local council as to what now is the most appropriate registration section for your salon i.e. Tattoo or Skin Penetration or Both.

3) Check the Act and Regulations to ensure your general procedures are in compliance, particularly in relation to hygiene and infection control.

4) Ensure that you are always using sterile skin penetration supplies, opening them within the clients view, and disposing of used supplies correctly.

5) Make sure your adopted record keeping and its storage is in full compliance with the Act this should include all client records and records of disposal of clinical waste etc.

6) In addition to the information contained on your client consent forms I suggest that you also provide each client a copy of the document on the following link and that the client read the document prior to treatment. Tattooing – Client health information

Graduate Update Bulletin: Hashimoto's Thyroiditis & Loss of Outer Eyebrow Hair

Topic: Clients with unexplained loss of hair in outer eyebrow.

Occasionally you may encounter a middle aged client who presents for Cosmetic Tattooing with almost complete loss of hair in their outer eyebrows (often the outer 1/3), if there appears to be no obvious reason for the loss of hair (e.g. over plucking or injury) then consider the possibility that the client may be suffering from a type of thyroid condition called Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.

The thyroid gland lies in the neck just below the Adam's apple and it has important role in metabolism by regulating how quickly the body burns energy, if the bodies immune system becomes confused and attacks the thyroid gland this may result in an autoimmune condition known as hashimoto's thyroiditis. Other symptoms the sufferer of hashimoto's thyroiditis may have may include; weight gain, depression, sensitivity to cold, fatigue, fast or slow heart rates, constipation, cramps etc.

After early correct diagnosis and medical treatment it is possible that some or all of the sufferers signs and symptoms may disappear including in some instances the regrowth of lost eyebrow hair.

Recommendation (for our graduates): Clients who present with recent unexplained loss of their outer eyebrow hair should consult with their doctor about a possible medical cause before having eyebrow tattooing. Whilst this is not a preclusion to Cosmetic Tattooing, ethically if the client has a medical condition, and if it is possible they may re-grow their eyebrow hair after diagnosis and treatment by their doctor, then they should be afforded the opportunity to make an informed choice before proceeding with the treatment.
