Skin colour loss (de-pigmentation) can occur from medical procedures, trauma from burns or accidents, congenital anomalies, or different types of skin diseases. Medical treatments and surgical procedures can correct or improve the appearance of many types of scars and skin abnormalities. Some patients, however, will still need the skin colour of the treated area to be corrected for it to appear more natural.
Light coloured scars can be camouflaged long-term using medical micropigmentation. – during which ‘prescriptive’ skin coloured pigments are blended into the scar to minimise its appearance.
MASKING AND RECONSTRUCTIVE CARE
Breast cancer is a malignant disease that is affecting more and more women. In the European Union, one woman gets breast cancer every two minutes and one dies every six minutes. However, the good news is that the survival rate for early-detected breast cancer is around 95 percent.
Because breast cancer often requires surgery, a reconstructive technique allows the nipples or areola areas to be repigmented. In this way, the natural appearance of the breasts is achieved.
A natural and realistic areola and nipple complex can be created to complete the healed mastectomy procedure. A three dimensional, multi-tonal tattoo is used to create the perception of depth. In the case of a unilateral mastectomy the areola and nipple is coordinated to the adjacent breast. In patients who have had nipple reconstruction, a dimensional effect is used to re-pigment the new nipple and to create the surrounding areola complex.
Medical micropigmentation enables the reconstruction of eyebrows and eyelashes, drawing natural-looking hairs. This treatment is not suitable for advanced hair loss.
Lack of symmetry or definition of the lips often occurs in people with cleft lip. By using Liquid Perfection mineral pigment, it is possible to reconstruct a new lip contour, creating balance, symmetry and intensifying lip color.
We start the treatment by applying anesthetic to the desired area. Hold the anesthetic for 15 to 30 minutes, after which we manually draw the desired shape / shadow in as natural a shade as possible.
For shading, we use a special tool with a micro needle that allows us to dose the pigments, so that the final result is as natural as possible. The treatment is painless, and lasts 2 to 3 hours.
