Flawed skin has the malignant power to tamper with one’s self-confidence and self-esteem. It can obstruct your lifestyle; from the way you dress to how you conduct yourself in social situations. A scar could be a constant reminder of a somber time or a terrible incident in your life, and a mark caused by a medical condition can cause you to feel dreadfully self-conscious about your own appearance.
Micropigmentation correction treatment or medical tattooing can effectively perform the task of removing such troubling blemishes from your skin. This treatment is the perfect solution for you if you have hairless spots which are cause by alopecia areata or by chemotherapy, whitish patches which are the results of vitiligo or scars left behind after a surgery or an injury.
At Care Contour the basic micropigmentation procedure starts with a patch test to determine whether the client would show any allergic reaction during the course of the treatment. If the client shows positive results, our technicians will continue on by consulting with you in selecting the pigments from the proper color. Then the pigment deposits will be positioned within the dermal layer of the defected skin area to camouflage any flawed skin.
The needle used for this treatment is smaller than the one used for a typical tattooing procedure; therefore the procedure will inflict only minimal pain (local anesthetics can be used to eliminate any uneasiness that may occur). Moreover, since it is a non-invasive procedure, it will alleviate any risk of infection.
Immediately after the treatment you may experience slight reddening which may last for a few hours around the treated site; however it can be reduced with an ice pack.
If you have any of the following conditions you can consider this treatment to regain the healthy glow of your skin.
- Scars from breast surgery
If you have undergone mastectomies, breast reduction, augmentation or reconstruction surgery you may have scars on or around your areola. Such defects can affect you emotionally and psychologically, and interfere with your personal relationships.
Areola tattooing can efficiently restore the natural appearance of your areola. The pigments will be selected from the natural color of your nipple. You can discuss with the technician about your preference over the size, shape and the color. The procedure can be completed within one hour and dictates no special aftercare restrictions. However it is important to keep the area applied with A and D ointment or Vaseline for over one week.
It is a chronic medical condition that that is caused by the reduction of pigments, resulting in the occurrence of whitish patches. This condition transpires when the pigment producing cells die or stop functioning.
The depigmentation patches can appear anywhere on the body and can affect the healthy appearance of your skin. The pigment shades can be chosen from any color to match the skin on anywhere of your body; whether on your lips or legs.
The skin colored pigments can blend in with your natural skin and successfully camouflage the undesirably noticeable marks.
- Burn scars
Burn scars can create an unappealing effect. Scar camouflage or micropigmentation can be used to reduce the whitish and the shiny appearance of the burn mark. The natural skin colored pigments can effectively blend in with the unaffected area, thus camouflaging the burnt skin.
However it is important that the scar has been healed over a period of at least twelve months and has a smooth surface with no dark edges.
- Alopecia and chemotherapy
Alopecia can cause the hair to fall out in round patches. It occurs when one’s own immune system attacks his hair follicles. The hairless spots can hinder one’s overall appearance and attract unwanted attention, which would result in feelings of discomfort.
The scalp micropigmentation treatment can create a shaved head look covering your bald spots or boost the density of your sparse hair.
You may have lost hair due to chemotherapy, both on your head as well as your eyebrows. The micropigmentation correction treatment can restore the natural appearance to your eyebrows and mimic the regrowth of your hair.
- Cleft lips
Cleft lips can occur due to lack of tissues to form a full lip; this may occur when the baby is still developing during early pregnancy.With the use of lip color pigments, the cleft on the lip can be shielded, hence improving the appearance of the lip or the lips.
