Providing Professional Paramedical Makeup in the Akron, OH Areas
Areola Repigmentation is a specialty area of medical tattooing that requires advanced education, training, and experience. These procedures help improve the appearance and self esteem of both women and men who have undergone breast surgery. Areola Repigmentation techniques can “create” an areola after breast reconstruction, minimize the appearance of scars, or restore an areola to a more natural looking color and shape. Areola Repigmentation may also be called Areola Tattooing, Areola Micropigmentation, Areola Pigmentation, Areola Recoloring, Areola Restoration, or Areola Simulation.

Areola Repigmentation Helps People After Breast Surgery
The areola is part of the human breast in both women and men. It is a circular area of skin around the nipple that is often darker and thicker than the surrounding skin. The areola plays a key role in the aesthetic look of a breast. Since a woman’s self-image can depend on the appearance of her breasts, a missing areola can be psychologically devastating. A woman can survive breast cancer after undergoing a mastectomy, and she can regain her figure with a breast reconstruction. However, she may not feel “complete” without an areola. A woman can become emotionally distressed from a scarred areola as well. A man’s self-esteem can also be lowered by the appearance of his chest and breasts.
Areola tattooing provides the “finishing touch” after breast surgery. Patients feel the tattooing process helps them during the last part of their recovery to look complete and feel “whole” and “normal” again.
What is areola re-pigmentation?
Areola re-pigmentation is a paramedical permanent cosmetic makeup procedure that is primarily done on breast cancer survivors who have had reconstructive surgery or women who have undergone breast augmentation. In breast cancer cases, the surgeon will create a nipple and graft it onto the patient's breast. Once this is well healed, a permanent makeup artist who specializes in areola pigmentation, will tattoo a natural color onto the graft. The color chosen is usually to compliment the healthy breast. In some cases, the surgeon will not create a nipple, and the tattoo can be done to simulate a 3-D nipple using artistic effects. Light and shade can create a look that is somewhat realistic from a distance.
Some clients have inquired about having their natural healthy areolas darkened due to aging and the fading of the color through the years. This can be done, and is really no different than a traditional tattoo.
First Denise draws on the areola using pigment that has been custom blended to match the patient's coloring. Then, after she and the patient are satisfied with the size, shape and color of the new areola, she implants the pigment into the skin. The procedure takes about 30 minutes per side and is usually painless. If the patient feels any discomfort, topical anesthetic is applied.
