Paramedical tattoo, also known as micropigmentation is a specialised procedure that implants pigment just below the epidermis of the skin similar to an artistic tattoo.
However, micropigmentation differs from an artistic tattoo due to:
- The specialist training of the practitioner.
- Pharmaceutical grade pigments are used as compared to unregulated tattoo pigment.
- The techniques used are less aggressive than traditional tattoos and cause less trauma to the skin.
What can be treated?
Paramedical tattoo can recreate, camouflage or disguise body markers such as:
- 3D areola and nipple complex post mastectomy
- Scarring from breast augmentation
- Self harm scars
- Trauma scars
- Surgical scars
- Hair simulation on the scalp
