CAMOUFLAGE VITILIGO WITH MICROPIGMENTATION
MEDICAL VITILIGO REPIGMENTATION
Vitiligo can affect any area of the skin, but most commonly occurs on the face, neck and hands. This is caused by the lack of a pigment called melanin in the skin. Vitiligo Repigmentation is a procedure that aims to improve the difference in pigmentation by camouflaging vitiligo patches or spots. Pigment is applied into the skin in order to achieve harmony in the color of the skin.
This vitiligo repigmentation treatment will not stop the condition from spreading, but can help many people regain their especially if the face and hands have been affected.
WHAT TO DO BEFORE GETTING VITILIGO REPIGMENTATION?
This treatment cannot be performed if the skin is tanned, because the blend of pigments needs to be matched to your natural skin color. If we perform this treatment on tanned skin, when your tan fades, the skin tones will be mismatched.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
A:Each session will take between 1 - 2 hours and multiple appointments are generally required depending on the treatment area.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE CONSULTATION?
A:During the treatment consultation, our specialist will assess and analyze your skin pigmentation to see if you are suitable candidate for the repigmentation treatment. At this time we may decide to perform a patch test on the treatment site. This test area is then left to develop over a months time in order to get an accurate impression of how your skin will look long-term. This ensures that the correct pigment shades are blended in order to recreate the tonal variance of your skin.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
A:Your Micropigmentation specialist will skillfully infuse the color pigment into the skin. Multiple blends of pigments may be used to recreate the skins unique tone and color in order to achieve an end result that is as natural and realistic as possible.
WILL IT HURT?
A:We want you to be completely comfortable during your treatment. We apply a topical numbing agent prior to the procedure. We frequently check-in with you before and during the treatment to ensure any discomfort is being managed appropriately. This procedure should not hurt and discomfort should not rate more than a 3-5 out of 10.
