What is medical tattooing used for?

Medical tattooing, also known as paramedical tattooing or micropigmentation, is used to address various cosmetic and medical concerns. It can help camouflage scars, vitiligo, surgical incisions, and other skin imperfections. Additionally, medical tattooing can recreate the appearance of areolas for breast cancer survivors who have undergone mastectomy, and it can also be used to enhance the appearance of eyebrows, hair, and eyeliner for individuals with hair loss or alopecia.

How long does medical tattooing last?

The longevity of medical tattooing can vary based on factors such as the location of the tattooed area, the quality of the pigments used, and the individual's skin type. Generally, medical tattooing lasts between 2 to 5 years. Touch-up sessions might be required over time to maintain the color and appearance, as the pigments gradually fade due to natural skin exfoliation.

What are the risks of medical tattooing?

While medical tattooing is generally safe when performed by a qualified professional, there are risks involved, including infection, allergic reactions to pigments, and improper healing that could affect the final outcome. It's crucial to choose a trained and experienced practitioner, follow proper aftercare instructions, and disclose any medical conditions or allergies to minimize risks.

How do I prepare for a medical tattooing procedure?

Preparing for a medical tattooing procedure involves similar steps to other

tattooing processes. It's recommended to avoid alcohol, caffeine, and blood-thinning medications prior to the procedure to minimize bleeding and improve healing. Consult with your tattoo artist about any concerns, expectations, or allergies you might have. Depending on the specific procedure, you might need to discontinue certain skincare products before the appointment such as Retin-A.

What is the cost of medical tattooing?

The cost of medical tattooing varies widely based on the location, the expertise of the practitioner, the complexity of the procedure, and the number of sessions required. Generally, medical tattooing procedures can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.
