Paramedical tattooing can sound a bit mysterious. In my studio I am able to help correct or restore an areola for a client who has had breast reconstruction surgery for either medical or cosmetic purposes. On occasion, some people find their areola too light or misshapen, so tattoo can assist with this as well. Scarring is often the result after any kind of surgery at the breast area, and ProCell Microchannelling is oftentimes recommended to address the scarring prior to tattooing the area to make it more esthetically pleasing. Health care coverage may pay for an areola tattoo, depending on your benefit plan and the advice of your surgeons.
Scar camouflage is another form of paramedical tattooing and this will be offered November 2019. It is highly advanced and must be performed by an extensively trained and experienced professional. Scar camouflage must be selectively applied and is suitable for specific types of scars on certain areas of the body. When done correctly, scar camouflage can diminish or eliminate the appearance of a scar that has bothered you.
Scalp Micropigmentation is a quasi para-medical treatment inasmuch as it can address scarring that has occurred after previous hair transplant or hair loss remedies. Full hair loss can be very traumatizing for an individual and so that is how it falls into the area of para-medical. This service will be offered at Dermal Enhancements by Fall 2019 for partial hair loss only. For full scalp treatments I can recommend excellent practitioners in Ontario, well worth the travel.
ProCell Microchannelling can significantly reduce the appearance of scars anywhere on the body. It can also stimulate hair growth. ProCell is one of only 3 Health Canada approved hand-held devices permitted for use by estheticians and permanent makeup technicians and it has a proven record of success. I have only recently added ProCell to my services at Dermal Enhancements.
Nail Bed simulation is a newer technique that has become very popular for clients who have lost the upper portion of their fingers. The process involves tattooing a realistic looking nail bed and nail onto the upper part of the finger to give the appearance of a full nail. This same technique can be applied to clients with webbed toes who wish to have a realistic tattoo applied to the webbed area to appear as though the toes are separate. This makes sandals an entirely new experience!!!
PLEASE NOTE: A FULL CONSULTATION FOR ANY PARA-MED TREATMENT IS REQUIRED AND A CONSENT/WAIVER (NOT MY USUAL PERMANENT MAKEUP FORMS) WILL NEED TO BE REVIEWED AND SIGNED.
