When is Medical Tattooing Ideal?

Medical Tattooing

Permanent makeup, medical tattooing or micropigmentation has taken the beauty industry by a storm and gained immense popularity in a very short period of time. This is due to the fact that it has become a non-surgical solution for trauma survivors and post-surgery patients to feel whole again. Moreover, if you have no eyebrows, faint eyebrows or even partial eyebrows, a medical tattoo can be helpful. Likewise, a lip tattoo can be useful for reducing ‘lipstick bleed’ and also define your lip line. There is also the option of a colored lip tattoo that can hide your lip scars and not require you to wear lipstick.

In the same way, an eyeliner tattoo means that you don’t have to apply eyeliner again. While these are some fun applications, there are serious ones as well. If people suffer a medical condition, such as breast cancer, medical tattooing can get rid of the scars or improve the appearance of the nipple. This treatment has been used and endorsed by oncologists, dermatologists, opthalmologists and plastic and cosmetic surgeons for years. Listed below are some of the situations in which medical tattooing is deemed ideal:

  • Brow hair loss that occurs due to thyroid conditions
  • Nipple/areola restoration after breast cancer surgery
  • Before and after chemotherapy
  • People with hair loss due to illness or age (alopecia)
  • Hair-pulling disorder (Trichotillomania)
  • A permanent solution to loss of skin pigmentation (Vitiligo)
  • People with motor impairment, including arthritis, post-stroke, Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis
  • Camouflaging of post-surgical scars
  • Women with allergies to cosmetics, sensitive skin or sensitivity to contact lenses
