How long does the procedure appointment take?
Usually about 2-3 hours. When I book your initial application appointment I will discuss with you the general requirements for this permanent cosmetic procedure and what you can and should expect. I will also go over pro and post care information and requirements with you. At your actual appointment we will discuss how you want your areolas and nipples to look. I have a variety of several different cosmetic grade pigment colors that I will custom blend to closely match as natural a look as possible. Pictures may also be sent to your surgeon or personal physician to be included in your medical file. This procedure may be qualified under your insurance policy and formal paperwork can be provided for financial reimbursement.
How long is the "down time" or recovery period?
While these photos (taken immediately after each procedure) show minimal swelling and irritation, it is to be expected since this was a cosmetic tattooing, but it subsides pretty quickly. Although everyone has different sensitivities, I want my clients to be as relaxed and at ease as much as possible. I use numbing products to ensure my client’s comfort during each procedure so there is very little pain with the procedure. Full recovery for most breast procedures is usually a 21-28 day healing process however certain health issues including radiated skin may alter healing and color retention. Wearing a comfortable bra to offer protection and to contain gauze and healing products is essential as well.

Aftercare instructions and products are provided to each client so you are well informed on what to expect during your recover period. Strict adherence to the aftercare requirements will yield optimum results. Varying from the written instructions can cause complications and a less desirable look. There is a never a guarantee for any permanent cosmetic procedure. Aftercare is not an exact science and is different for everyone’s skin type and also for the particular procedure performed. I can only advise what I have found to work well for the majority of my clients and your results may vary.

How long does the look last?
Most areola procedure clients have a retention of 3-5 years depending upon several factors including the condition of their skin, medical conditions, any further required treatments and continued aftercare of the area. People with dry skin tend to retain the pigment longer than those with oily skin.
