Paramedical Tattooing is a Multi-Sessions Process
Cosmetic tattooing is a “partnership” with clients because it is typically a multi-step process. The results after the first tattooing session may be very good. However, due to the “unpredictable” nature of most scars and skin abnormalities, a second, third, or even fourth session may be necessary for the best outcome. Fortunately, the color formula or technique can be modified at each session to improve results. Sessions should be scheduled approximately 6 to 8 weeks apart to allow for complete healing and color stabilization.
Are You a Candidate for Paramedical Micropigmentation
You might be a candidate if you meet the criteria below. Your scar or stretch marks should be:
What to Expect:
A consultation is the first step in the process. At the consultation our Studio will determine if you are a candidate for paramedical micropigmentation and discuss your options as well as details about the procedure. If you are a candidate for Camouflage Tattooing and require a spot test patch, which can typically be performed the same day. There is a charge of $80 for a spot test to cover the cost of supplies.
The cost of the procedure is determined based off of the size and complexity of the area being treated. You will be given a detailed quote during the consultation. Typically, these services range anywhere from $400-$2,000.
How Does it Feel?
The feeling is similar to an abrasion with a slight stinging sensation and will cause swelling (edema), redness (purpura), minor bleeding and possible bruising. Topical numbing agents are avoided as they cause skin color changes as well as constriction of capillaries, lessening the availability of normal cell function to the area. Treatment times usually range anywhere between one to three hours.
Results and Expectations
Camouflage Tattooing can be an unpredictable process. A combination of pigments will be custom blended to match the color of the natural skin. If correcting discoloration, the first session may be to insert corrective coloring before implanting the skin tone. The final healed color looks very different from when the pigment was initially implanted. The healed result equals the pigment color formula that was inserted under the skin plus the patient’s skin color and undertones. It will take 4 to 6 weeks to see how the healed color will look, but may need up to 8 weeks before a second session can be completed. When treating scarred tissue, there may be a rejection of ink in some areas. Additional sessions, if needed, will be adjusted according to results. Once the final look is achieved, touch-up treatments may be required every 1-3 years for thicker scarred tissue, but can last up to 4 years.
