Cosmetic Tattooing Procedures
Eyebrows and lip colour are popular permanent makeup procedures. These provide enhancement to facial features and the time saving daily convenience is immeasurable. They are a valuable help to those with visual impairment, physical disabilities, alopecia or sensitivities to topical cosmetics.
Other procedures available at JB Cosmetic Tattoo are nipple areola repigmentation following breast reconstruction surgery and scar camouflage, including hair follicle simulation, which will improve the appearance of hair loss and scarred areas of the scalp and hairline.
Tattoo removal by saline method is also available. This is a series of treatment for old or unsatisfactory permanent makeup or small body art tattoos.
We all have different views on what makes a beautiful brow. Care is taken to design the brow shape to the client’s preference and flatter the face. There are several ways to improve eyebrows with cosmetic tattooing.
Hair strokes, a powder-fill look, shading, ombre style, or combinations will all enhance a brow. Age and skin type, as well as client preference, will determine the choice of technique and this is discussed at consultation.
Those who have lost natural lip colour through the ageing process or as a result of scaring can benefit from colour to the lip. It will define the line and give an illusion of fullness from the presence of colour.
The Nipple Areola
Areola tattooing is the final stage of the breast reconstruction process. It provides colour and dimension to the reconstructed nipple/areola area. For best results, areola tattooing should be completed at least 3-4 months post surgery to ensure that scars have healed and settled well.
A variety of pigment tones in pinks and browns are used to match the other breast as closely as possible. For bilateral reconstructions, consideration is given to the breast size and the client’s skin tones when deciding on colour and contour. This is assessed and discussed at time of consultation.
Scars and Camouflage
Areas of thinning or scars on hair bearing skin, such as the scalp, can benefit from micropigmentation. Only mature scars that are pale or white are suitable. Scars that are very pink and raised are not suitable and may respond better to other treatments such as steroid or laser.
Tattooing these areas will generally require several sessions for the scar to retain the pigment.
