What is medical tattooing?

We believe that helping to rebuild someone’s body image is something very special. Medical tattooing is an advanced form of permanent cosmetics which has helped many people achieve just that. Range of treatments are available for people who have experienced a range of medical conditions such as hair loss, stretchmarks, burns or scarring or breast reconstruction.

What does the treatment involve?

There will be an initial consultation will be used to discuss your requirements and help you decide on the result that will best suit you. We will need to know everything from your lifestyle, image, hair, skin tone and facial features will be taken into consideration. The team will then custom blend colours to perfectly match your requirements –their skill as artists coming to the fore during the design stage. The treatment itself involves gently implanting microscopic particles of pigment into the reticular layer of skin.

Will it look natural?

Absolutely! the healed result will look very natural indeed. Take a look through the portfolio images (before and after) and you will see that the results can be tailored to whatever look, colour tone or strength best suits you.

How long will it last?

This depends from person to person because skin type, diet, genetics and environmental factors can all contribute to how long the pigments will be retained. For instance, sun bed use and sun exposure have a bearing on the pigment retention, but this can be prevented with proper protection.
As a guide, it could be anything between one to five years before a new treatment is required, although refresher colour boosts are recommended for maintenance during this time. Once the colour starts to change you will know that you are ready for your refresher colour boost.

What will I look like straight after the treatment?

It is very light it and it will depend on the reaction from your skin, it can go darker.

Everyone is different, but as a general rule the surface skin generally heals between 3-7 days after the treatment, and 10-14 days below the surface.

Can I donate blood after my treatment?

Please wait for at least 4 months before doing any blood donation.
