Medical pigmentation techniques make it possible to cover up imperfections and to achieve visual enhancements. For example, scars can be made less noticeable, hairs can be simulated and nipples can be forged after a breast surgery.
With PMU it is possible to make scars less noticeable. One condition for this treatment is that the scar is lighter than the surrounding skin and should have healed properly. Pigments similar to the skin color will be added at the scar tissue to reduce the difference in color between the scar and the surrounding skin. This type of pigmentation is suitable for all skin colors and skin types.
Hair micro simulation
This treatment provides a surgery free and long term solution for hair loss on the scalp due to hair loss with regular pattern, thinning hair, scars formed after hair transplant surgery, scars from injury or surgery, alopecia or trichotillomania. The technique allows the simulation of natural looking hair and can be used to replace the hair on the scalp, beard and mustache.
Alopecia is a disease within the hair roots that could result in diminished hair growth or patches of complete baldness. Subsequently, facial hair like eyebrows and eyelashes could also disappear. If this occurs, pigmentation of 3D eyebrows and eyeliner can enhance the facial expression.
Vitiligo (pigment disorder)
Vitiligo results in the disappearance of the natural pigment of the skin. With a PMU treatment the loss of pigments can be made less noticeable by applying pigments that are similar to the normal skin color. One condition to undergo this treatment is that the effects of vitiligo must be stable for at least three years, in order to ensure that the area does not expand. During an intake appointment a small color test is conducted at the least noticeable place to test which color provides the best results. After 4 to 6 weeks the color of the test area is assessed to choose the best color to start the full treatment.
Nipple and areola pigmentation
This treatment for individuals who had breast reconstruction (eg. after surgery for breast cancer) entails mimicking the nipple and areola by adding different pigments into the skin. By using a special needle technique, a natural appearing 3-D result can be achieved. Next to this, scars or deformations of the areola as a result of a breast lift or breast reduction, can also be minimized and corrected. Furthermore, for both men and women who experience their areola to be too pale, too small or when it does not have enough definition, adding pigments can be a solution.
Clefts (cleft lip) camouflage
This is a congenital abnormality of the lip shape, which can be camouflaged with a full lips pigmentation treatment. With this treatment, the symmetry will be restored and the entire lip area will be enhanced with a natural lip color, making the lips more eye catching.
