Medical and Cosmetic Tattooing

Medical Tattooing

Micropigmentation can simply be described as minute particles of coloured pigment being placed mechanically below the surface of the skin. This treatment can be used in a medical capacity to correct scarred or discoloured skin following accident, surgery or disease, such as the recreation of an areola (the brown area surrounding the nipple) following reconstructive surgery for breast cancer. Depending on the area being treated, and your tolerance of pain, an anaesthetic cream may be applied first to help reduce any pain. A very fine needle is then used to place pigment into the skin at a very high speed via a small hand held electrical device. Micropigmentation can be compared to having a tattoo as the new pigment or colour is deposited in the dermal layer of the skin, just below the surface. You can return to work and normal activities immediately after a treatment. The cost of micropigmentation can vary considerably with recreation of the areola costing approximately £500 per breast.

Cosmetic Tattooing
Also known as micropigmentation, is colour that is tattooed into the skin, creating make-up that does not wash off, looks good, stays put and lasts for about a year.

It is a revolutionary method of inserting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin in order to enhance facial features. Because the colour is placed ‘in’ your skin, a softer, more natural look results.

From natural hair stroke eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner and blush or full lip colour, you can have make up that lasts 24/7.

Colour is added carefully on an initial procedure, and then adjusted/completed in a second session, which is undertaken after 4/6 weeks after allowing the colour to settle.
