Vitiligo is a long-term condition characterised by patches of skin losing their pigment due to a deficiency in the meloncyte cells which produce pigment, giving the skin its natural colour. Vitiligo can affect any area of skin, but most commonly occurs upon the face, neck and hands, and in skin creases appearing in the form of noticeable ‘white patches’. Medical micro-pigmentation is a ground-breaking solution for Vitiligo and Depigmentation.
With the use of specialised medical tattooing techniques, the treatment infuses custom blended, medical grade pigments into the skin, successfully blending-out and camouflaging the affected areas.
Medical micro-pigmentation treatment for Vitiligo is suitable for those individuals whose condition;
Normal activities may be resumed immediately following the procedure. There will be slight tenderness, swelling and redness to the treated area which will generally subside within 72 hours.
The intensity of the colour will be significantly darker immediately following the procedure. This will reduce and soften during the healing process to deliver a more subtle, natural look.
The healing duration will take approximately 5 – 10 days, during which some fine crusting will occur which will naturally flake away during the healing period. It is crucial to the final results of the medical enhancement that this crusting is not touched or removed prematurely whilst healing, and that the additional aftercare guidelines are adhered to for sufficient healing and to avoid any post treatment complications.
Full aftercare instructions will be provided both verbally and in hard copy following the procedure, together with an aftercare healing balm.
The longevity of medical micro-pigmentation is variable from person to person based upon factors such as skin type, age and general lifestyle. It is recommended that medical enhancements be periodically maintained in the form of a ‘colour-boost’ re-touch to keep them looking fresh and at their optimum shape and colour. Generally, colour-boosts are recommended for every 12 – 18 months following the initial procedure.
