Medical Tattooing and Permanent Makeup Treatment in Cape Town

Medical tattooing Cape Town: restore your appearance

You’re tired of hiding your scars or thinning hair and you want to feel confident again. You’ve tried using makeup, but it never worked for you!

Imagine getting rid of the embarrassing scars on your face, restoring your missing nipple from cancer or restoring thinning hair from alopecia. Now imagine being able to go out in public without feeling self-conscious about how people are looking at you because they can’t see any more evidence of those old injuries or surgeries.

Medical micro pigmentation is an innovative technique used to restore the original colour by “tattooing” an area of skin with single-use sterile pigments, well tolerated by the body, which are offered in a wide range of shades for our client’s well-being.

What is medical tattooing and how does it work?

Medical tattooing, also known as micro pigmentation, is a form of tattooing that uses sterile needles and pigments to fill in scars, restore colour to areas of the skin, or create the appearance of hair. The pigments used in medical tattooing are made from minerals and are safe for use on the skin.

Medical tattooing uses a single-use needle to inject sterile pigment under the skin’s dermis layer. The process is virtually painless, as numbing topical anaesthetic can be applied to the skin beforehand.

A month after the first tattooing session, a second procedure is needed to fine-tune the results and colour. Patients can use a calming cream for several days post-procedure to minimize irritation. To ensure optimal healing, it’s essential to keep the area clean and dry and to avoid using makeup or other products on the tattooed area for at least a week.

This permanent makeup technique is often used to:

  • Fade the appearance of scars

  • Restore the colour of areolas following breast surgery

  • Create the appearance of fuller eyebrows

  • Mimic the appearance of hair to cover bolding spots

How Does the Medical Tattooing Procedure Work at Blink Beauty Salons?

Before Treatment

In your initial consultation, you will work closely with your medical tattoo artist to plan your custom tattoo. They will help you choose the right pigments, design, and placement for your desired results. During your consultation, you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the procedure.

During Treatment

Your medical tattooing will be done in Blink Beauty Salon. To begin, the artist will review your tattoo’s details with you and finalize any remaining details. Next, a topical anaesthetic is applied to reduce discomfort during the procedure. The makeup artist will then artfully apply the custom-colored pigments to provide the results you want for your cosmetic problems.

After Treatment

Once the tattooing is finished, the medical artist will take care of dressing the area with a sterile dressing. They will also provide aftercare instructions to help you heal quickly and avoid infection. After your medical tattooing, keeping the area clean and dry is important. You should also avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen when outside.
