NOW OFFERING 3D AREOLA TATTOOING AND SCAR CAMOUFLAGE AT AN INTRODUCTORY RATE
Micropigmentation is a non-surgical procedure augmenting breast reconstruction by creating the illusion of a natural, three-dimensional areola and nipple. For women who have undergone mastectomies or may have irregular or fading areolas, this complex intradermal pigmentation and 3-D nipple restoration, helps women to recover physically and emotionally from the scars of breast cancer.
Hyper-realistic 3D Areola Tattooing.
This tattoo was done by me. The client has no nipple, it is an illusion created completely by tattoo. The color will heal much softer and less red than how it is fresh.
I offer both virtual and in-person consultations to determine if you are a good candidate, pricing, and give you the opportunity to answer any questions you may have. You can book online using the button below.
This tattoo was done by a student in my class using the specific 3D technique we were taught at The Sauler Institute.
This is the placement of pigment beneath the epidermis of the skin in the areola area, otherwise known as tattooing or micropigmentation.
This process is usually complete in one appointment. However, in some cases, you may require an additional touch up depending on your individual healing process. A 4-6 week follow up is booked at the initial appointment to make sure everything healed nicely and touch up areas if needed.
The shorter answer is: no, not in Canada. Patients must pay out of pocket for their procedure. However, it is worth checking and asking if your insurance will reimburse you, even partially. Hopefully with enough demand, this will change in Canada as I, amongst all other artists and patients, strongly believe it should be.
I will supply any documentation they request.
Most of the initial fading will happen in the first two weeks. Unless exposed to the sun, your tattoo should last a a lifetime.
Make sure you have read the pre and post care entirely.
The day of the procedure you will want to wear a comfortable bra and bring any photos of your breast prior to surgery, if you have them (not needed).
The area will be covered with dressings and you will be given your aftercare ointment and instructions.
There is no down time with this procedure and you should be able to resume your normal activities. However, there are a few restrictions: No vigorous exercise for the first 24 hours, avoiding sweating for a week, and no soaking in any bathtubs, swimming pools or jacuzzi’s for a least 7 days after.
This is something that may be camouflaged depending on what your scars look like. This process works best for hypopigmentated scars (meaning, the scar is lighter in color than surrounding skin).
No, the needle only goes into the dermis which is just 3 layers into the skin.
When you meet Lara, she will work with you to determine color and size by first drawing impermanently on the area. Once the color and size is agreed upon, Lara will create dimension with color and shading, giving you a realistic nipple and areola. When the procedure is finished you will be amazed with the results!
No. 98% of the time there is no pain in the reconstructed breast, for the other 2% we apply a topical anesthetic so there is little to no pain.
