In what way medical micropigmentation techniques can be used?
Medical micropigmentation can be applied in a wide range of techniques such as:
• Scar Camouflage: this technique can help mask the appearance of scars, burns, or the repair of congenital disorders such as a cleft palate.
• Reconstructive Camouflage: helps clients who have previously had a mastectomy to create an areola and nipple on the reconstructed breast. We aim to minimise any incision scars on the breast resulting from previous breast augmentation scars. We can also mask any scars appearing after breast reductions or breast lifts.
What is Micropigmentation?
In simple terms, micropigmentation is the process of depositing small coloured pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. This technique can be used as a medical tool to correct any discoloured or scarred skin following previous surgeries or accidents. This procedure is also safe for individuals who have had reconstructive surgery for breast cancer and can recreate the areola around the nipple.
Will it be painful?
The level of pain experienced during this procedure will be different for every individual. Depending on your tolerance of pain and the area being targeted, pain levels may vary. We aim to minimise any pain with the use of anaesthetic creams and using a fine small needle, which deposits the pigment into the skin at a very high speed.
Please note, that micropigmentation is a fast procedure, which allows you to return to your normal daily routine immediately after your treatment.
Who can have micropigmentation?
Any individual can undergo a micropigmentation therapy. It can be beneficial for individuals who want to look their best at all times or people who want to correct parts of their skin imperfections.
The following are a list of people who might opt to have medical micropigmentation:
– People who have skin imperfections following surgeries, disease or accidents
– People who may have skin damage on cleft lip conditions
– People who has breast reconstructive surgery and now require the recreation of the areola surrounding the nipple on the breast
– Clients with Vitiligo or uneven pigmentation on their skin
– People who suffer from alopecia (hair loss); micropigmentation can support hairline enhancement.
– People who have surgical scars and want them masked or camouflaged by micropigmentation

Aesthetic London UK treats a wide range of scars, including those related to medical and cosmetic surgery, self harming, alopecia, vitiligo, accidents and burns. Scar camouflage is suitable for all nationalities and skin types
Scar camouflage is suitable for patients who suffer from:
- Burn Marks

- Surgical Scars
Vitiligo camouflage reduces the appearance of your Vitiligo-Scar, 90% success. Because of the special pigments the results typically last over 15+ y.
Vitiligo pigmenation: multiple treatments are necessary to build the color to completely match your skin color. It takes about 4-5 weeks for the color to completely settle and stabilize in your skin.
Every 6 weeks you need to be returned for more pigmentation until you have had a minimum of 3-4 visits on each treated area.
During each session, the color is reviewed and adjustments are made if needed to ensure that your color gets matched to your normal skin tones.
