With many applications, colour restructuring
can be used, for example, to restore the mammary areola
after breast cancer treatment or other surgeries to this area.
But it has many other uses as well: patients with stable vitiligo
, burn victims
and chemotherapy patients
can also benefit from this technique. In fact, medical micropigmentation
can correct any kind of skin achromia or alopecia, whether it is medical, surgical or traumatic in nature. More and more applications are being found, tracing the outlines of a new approach to skin treatment.
Micropigmentation: technical process and duration
Requiring the use of single-use sterile equipment, restorative micropigmentation, also known as medical tattooing, involves implanting sterile mineral or organic pigments approved as a CE class IIb medical device into the dermis using the needle of a medical tattoo machine. With the application of an optional anaesthetic cream, the technique is virtually painless. One month later, a second visit takes place to correct the shade to obtain the final result.
It should be noted that, after each session, applying ice and a soothing cream for the first few days can limit irritation caused by medical tattooing. It is also important to protect the treated area from external irritants (sun, cosmetics, water) to promote optimal healing. If all of these conditions are met, the medical tattoo will last between 3 and 5 years and can be refreshed whenever your patients wish.
