This answer was rated:

June 5th I had a biopsy of the rigtht and left temporal artery. The wound was covered with dermabond. I am due to have a permanent which contains chemicals. HOw soon after this procedure can I have a permanent?
It is best to give it about 4 weeks to heal completely so no chemicals fall on a raw wound.
As you have already completed about 15 days, I would suggest waiting for another two weeks and then going for this.
This will keep it very safe.
Otherwise you can also do it three weeks after the procedure which also be safe enough, that is, one week from now.
Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.

Four weeks from June 5th is July 3rd.. The incision is covered by dermabond and there is no leakage. Not much of the dermabond has flaked off so the area is pretty well covered. Jeanne
Still, give it three weeks.
That would be around June 26th.
Some leakage can occur through the dermabond.
