What is Reconstructive Tattooing?

Reconstructive tattooing is an innovative cosmetic tattooing procedure which may improve the appearance of individuals with medically-related physical imperfections. The process for reconstructive tattooing is similar to semi-permanent cosmetics, although the treatment techniques used may vary due to medical considerations.

There is a wide variety of reconstructive tattooing available however it requires advanced education, training and experience to offer these different treatments.

3D Nipple Post-Breast-Reconstruction and 3D Areola Reshaping and Pigmentation

The nipple and areola form a key role in the aesthetic look of the breast in both men and women. Often the areola fades or becomes discoloured over time, also surgical procedures such as a mastectomy or breast reduction have a significant impact on the areola area by altering its natural appearance. By using specific techniques on the reconstructed breast, it is possible to recreate a very realistic 3D nipple and areola area. Specific shading and highlighting techniques are used to produce the perception of depth and detail.

Scars, Burns and Stretch Marks Relaxation and Improvement by MCA Techniques and Digital Skin Needling

Dry tattooing (also known as MCA Micro Needling) is an exciting alternative treatment that works directly on damaged skin, relaxing and smoothing scars and can also reduce stretch marks.

Micro needling treatment use a digital tattoo machine which is a very quick and precise process. No pigment is tattooed into the skin, however pigmentation begins to normalise as a result. Dry tattooing can firm stretch marks by making the skin tighter. It will also bring new life to damaged tissue and with some sunlight will allow natural pigmentation to return. Scars are smoothed and their pigmentation returns over time.

Scar and Burns Camouflage Colouration

Damaged skin from cuts, burns or punctures form scar tissue which is thicker than normal skin, more distinct and turns white once healed. Camouflage colouration involves re-pigmenting the scar tissue with a natural colour, similar to the rest of the skin surrounding it, to easily blend in. The process can involve micropigmentation which divides the scar tissue and the use of specific colour blends to carefully match each individual’s natural skin tone.

Shallow and Mosaic Pigment Camouflage

Shallow and mosaic pigment camouflage treatments are carried out on areas of the skin that have experienced pigmentation loss. The process of micropigmentation is where pigments are implanted into the skin and with the shallow and mosaic effect it gives the tattoo a very natural appearance.

LD and Tram Scar Flattening and Pigmentation

TRAM flap surgery entails breast reconstruction from the lower abdominal skin. LD and TRAM scar flattening treatments can utilised medical tattooing to smooth the scars post breast reconstruction. Smoothing the scars assist in the natural restoration of the pigmentation. Additionally pigments are implanted into the skin to give it back a natural colour.

Skin Graft and Vitiligo Pigmentation

Vitiligo is a skin disorder characterises by the loss of skin colour on small or widespread areas of the body. The process of micro-pigmentation implants pigments into the skin by using a variety of techniques and pigments. Although it is challenging to perfectly match the natural skin colour to that of the surrounding region mosaic technique can be introduced to give natural variation in skin pigment and colouring.
