Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of some of the most frequently asked questions about paramedical tattoo 

WHAT IS A PARAMEDICAL TATTOO?

A paramedical tattoo is a cosmetic tattoo applied because of a medical condition or to disguise the results of its treatment. Paramedical tattooing (also known as medical tattooing) is used to disguise scars, stretch marks, birthmarks and other skin conditions.

IS PARAMEDICAL MICROPIGMENTATION SAFE?

Yes. My methods of tattooing are controlled, gentle and safe. I utilize a 100% single-use, disposable system for each procedure. Strict sterilization and sanitation standards are followed in accordance with OSHA requirements.

DOES IT HURT?

Very little discomfort is experienced during the procedure. Some describe the sensation as a "'tickling" feeling. However, topical anesthesia is always available to use as needed to ensure your comfort.

WHAT IS THE HEALING PERIOD LIKE?

Most clients are able to return to work or their other daily activities immediately following their procedure without any embarrassment or discomfort. For approximately 10 days following the procedure, you will need to apply a thin film of ointment to the procedure site. During this healing period, you will notice the color soften into your skin. 

HOW LONG DO PARAMEDICAL TATTOOS LAST?

Tattoos are permanent in that you will always have a permanent marking on your skin. However, over time, you will notice a gradual softening of color occurring each year. Many women feel that this is advantageous as they like having the color soften and lighten with time. However, if stronger color is preferred, color enhancement services are always an option. Factors which cause paramedical tattoos to fade are: individual body chemistry, cellular turnover-rejuvenation and exposure to sunlight.

DO YOU NEED A CONSULTATION?

Your experience begins with an in-person consultation. This consultation requires a $50 deposit, which will be applied to your treatment balance, if it is determined you are a viable candidate. During this consultation, we will discuss your medical background and any concerns. We will also conduct a small, skin patch test, to insure that you and your skin will tolerate the pigment, if applicable.
