Para-medical cosmetic micropigmentation is re-pigmentation of the skin surface where there is a loss of color due to surgery or trauma. Re-pigmentation reduces the visibility of the condition and restores the area to a more natural appearance. Paramedical procedures can be done for men or women, anywhere on the face or the body.
A good body image is an integral part of our well-being. I work in close consultation with many plastic surgeons for many different reconstructive purposes.
Advanced micro pigmentation procedures can improve the look of scarring by adding natural pigments to the area, which will make the scar less noticeable.
I custom blend pigments that harmonize with the surrounding tissue, then implant the pigment to make the scar less noticeable. This treatment could take several visits. It is important to have a realistic expectation when undergoing this procedure. I will discuss your particular case and outcomes with you at your consultation.
I custom blend colors and add pigment to the areola for complete or partial loss of the nipple complex. I use multiple shades to give the areola a natural 3-D result.
There are various stages in disguising a cleft lip to re-create a natural looking lip line. I create a new, more symmetrical lip shape and fill in with the natural lip color that suitable for the clients lip tone.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long does it last?
A: Fading is normal. Each and every time you have a touch up you’ll have a noticeable result. Maintenance is determined exclusively by you. Color duration primarily depends on the natural oiliness of the skin. The oilier the skin, the shorter the color lasts. Sweating and sun exposure can also reduce color contrast. On average you should expect a color refreshment every 10 to 12 months depending on skin and environment; if you have exceptionally oily skin it can be as soon as 6 months.
Q: Are the pigments and process safe?
A: Treatment is performed with disposable sterile tools (PhiBrush), and pigments are produced in accordance with the highest standards (PhiBrows microblading pigments).
Q: Is the process painful?
A: Pain during the treatment is relative. Clients with anxiety or fear about the procedure as well as female clients who are menstruating usually feel more pain. Other clients compare the pain to plucking eyebrows. I can use mild anesthetics in the form of cream or liquid that can almost entirely eliminate the pain during the treatment if you prefer.
Q. What precautions do I need to take prior to treatment?
A: The skin must not be in the inflammatory process or the process of healing and regeneration before each treatment. Do not be currently taking any steroid medication. Avoid alcohol the night before your treatment. The following should be avoided for 30 days prior to the treatment:
- Botox and fillers
- Fruit or milk acids
- Laser treatments
- Chemical peelings
- Chemical peelings
- Exposure to strong sunlight
