GIVING PATIENTS CONFIDENCE ONE INK DOT AT A TIME
Scar Camouflage Micro Pigmentation is a type of medical or paramedical tattooing that covers visible scars created by medical procedures. This process is also called Corrective Pigment Camouflage (CPC), Corrective Camouflage, Skin Repigmentation, Scar Camouflage, Skin Camouflage, Camouflage Tattooing, and Skin Color Tattooing.
Women who have undergone mastectomies have irregular or fading areolas, and other irregularities, can benefit from this procedure. 3-D nipple restoration helps women to recover physically and emotionally from the scars left behind by traumatic events like a mastectomy. Scar tissue is not as flexible or smooth and is often raised or sunken in and will most certainly react differently from healthy skin.
But not only women can benefit from this procedure since it can be applied to various body abnormalities like facial burns, scar discolorations, vitiligo, among others. While the success rate is very high, multiple treatments are needed to successfully complete the process.
It’s normal for patients to have many questions regarding the procedure and following care, so we’ve put together a FAQ for you to check out, but if you’re seriously considering getting any procedure done, be sure to ask your personal physician first.
