Our Areola Repigmentation procedures can “simulate” an areola and/or reduce the appearance of scars if you’ve had a mastectomy or breast reduction/augmentation surgery.
Also, we can enhance an areola for women and men who have discoloration, fading, or self-consciousness about their areola color or size (too light or too small).
We create a natural look with blending and shadowing techniques tailored to your skin tone and type.
The procedure usually takes 1 – 2 hours (unilateral) or 3 – 4 hours (bilateral), and is conducted in a clinical environment with medical quality equipment and local anesthetics, making it safe and pain-free.
We discuss the best course of treatment based on your skin type, medical history, and lifestyle.
Then we schedule subsequent visits.
2) The Procedure
We begin the procedure after the anesthetic has settled in.
Then we apply our aftercare products and schedule a touch-up appointment for 4 – 6 weeks after the procedure.
3) Touch Up
At the Touch Up appointment we check the shape and color of the healed area and take care of any adjustments.
We recommend periodic follow-up appointments because pigments will fade over time, depending on skin tone and type.
How long will the effects last?
The results can last up to 3 years.
What color will you use for the camouflage?
We mix all colors specifically to suit your skin tone.
All decisions are fully discussed and advised during the consultation appointment, which occurs prior to treatment.
What will the area look like directly after treatment?
The area will be darker for the first few days but lightens by 75% within a week to appear soft and natural.
Will there be any redness or swelling?
Some minor redness and irritation are to be expected, but this will dissipate a few days after the treatment.
When can I resume my normal activities?
7 days after treatment.
