How does Medical Tattooing Work?
Under eye concealer tattooing is very similar to other permanent makeup treatments, the pigment will be inserted into the skin via a cosmetic tattoo gun.
The pigment sits one layer under the skin to acts as a buffer between the source of underlying darkness and the surface of skin.
We use a small handheld device to identify the photo type and produce the right formula to match perfectly before beginning tattooing.
This is not micro pigmentation, it is a tattoo. You can live a normal life and expose it to sunlight knowing that your skin will not become stained, because the tattoo pigments give us this security.
Unlike a regular tattoo, medical tattooing procedures use a special type of pigment. These pigments are 100% safe and non-irritants. Regular ink molecules are larger and, therefore, permanent. Once the ink is injected into the dermal skin layer, it stays there. Medical pigments have smaller molecules, which are broken down by the body over time. This means medical tattoos fade, although how long this takes will depend on your skin type, the medication you take, your body temperature, and the aftercare treatment.
Book a consultation to find out more about what to expect from a medical tattooing/skin camouflage tattooing procedure. We’ll discuss whether the treatment is suitable for you and carry out some skin patch tests to make sure you are not sensitive or allergic to the ink used in the treatment.
You’ll be asked to avoid any stimulant drinks such as coffee and energy drinks 24-hours prior to your treatment.
If you would like treatment for vitiligo, please wait until it has been dormant for at least seven years.
Medical tattooing is not an option for pregnant or breast-feeding ladies.
Q. How long does the treatment session last?
A. The number of treatment sessions needed will determine the overall cost, but we will discuss this at your consultation, so you can make an informed decision before you go ahead and book a treatment. We work with packages or separated sessions.
Q. Does it matter if I have a tan before the treatment?
A. It is very important that your skin is not tanned when you have a medical tattoo. Pigments are blended to your natural skin tone, so if you have a tan and this then fades, the tattooed area will appear darker than the rest of your body.
Q. Does it hurt?
A. Medical tattooing isn’t painful, but the treatment area will feel a little tender. Please be assured that numbing anaesthetic can be used if you are very sensitive to discomfort. Each treatment takes approximately one hour.
Q. Can I go straight back to work after the treatment?
A. You can expect the area to look a bit red for up to 72-hours, but you are fine to return to work immediately after a treatment session.
Q. Is aftercare provided?
A. Yes, of course!
