When one mentions micropigmentation you may automatically think of semi-permanent lipliner and eyebrow tattoos but it can also be used on a more medical level to help restore looks and revive confidence after surgery or scarring.

At the London Cosmetic Clinic we pride ourselves on our ability to create natural-looking results and treat every patient with care and sensitivity. Our medical micropigmentation can be used to camouflage scarring and vitiligo patches providing the scar is at least a year old and we carefully match the pigments use to your skin colour for a natural, seamless effect. Some scarring can stop facial hair from growing, for example scars running across eyebrows or, for men, around the chin and upper lip so we use a hair simulation technique to mimic missing follicles and make the area look flawless.

Another type of medical micropigmentation we provide is areola tattooing for those who have undergone surgeries such as mastectomies. This procedure can be a very emotional one so we treat all of our patients with care and sensitivity. We create a 3D effect to restore damaged or lost areolas and nipples so you can regain your confidence and sense of self.

Depending on the size, area and type of micropigmentation you may require more than one session. At your consultation we will discuss how many sessions you will need for your desired results.


Regaining your Looks and Confidence with Micropigmentation

Your eyebrows can transform the entire appearance of your face, highlighting the bone structure and enhancing other features. Not everybody has thick, lush eyebrows like Cara DeLevine due to over-plucking, hair loss or fair colourings so if you’re tired of pencilling your eyebrows every day, you can have micropigmentation treatment at the London Cosmetic Clinic to give you semi-permanent defined, attractive eyebrows.

Unlike the old method of tattooing eyebrows which left people with thick, edged brows, we use tiny amounts of pigment and work with your natural colourings and face shape to achieve a natural looking effect. Prior to your treatment we advise that you do not use eyebrow tints or hair stimulants for at least 4 weeks beforehand and avoid IPL hair removal or electrolysis in that area prior to the treatment. The procedure is quite similar to tattooing and can be uncomfortable so we apply a numbing gel before starting.

Straight after the treatment your eyebrows may look extremely dark but try not to be alarmed! As the skin recovers and the pigment settles the colour will appear around 30% to 70% lighter. You should be careful when cleaning your face after the treatment and don’t rub or pick at the area. Any redness or swelling will subside within 48 hours and you should make sure you use skin care with an SPF. If properly cared for, the final result will last for about 18 months but you can have a colour boosting session after a year.

Transforming your Eyebrows with Micropigmentation

Strong, defined eyebrows are a perfect way to define your face, highlight your eyes and enhance your facial bone structure. However, some women lack this definition as they’re fair haired, have previously over-plucked their eyebrows or have lost hairs due to illness, medication or age. Instead of spending time and effort using eyebrow pencils or powders every day, you can get long lasting definition with the use of semi-permanent eyebrow tattoos, also known as micro-pigmentation.

Using a tattooing technique, tiny amounts of pigment are deposited into the skin to either simulate the effect of hair strands or as a fine colour mist depending on your existing eyebrows, face shape and colourings and desired results. Before treatment, a numbing agent is applied to the area to minimise discomfort and you should avoid certain treatments such as eyebrow waxing, eyebrow tinting, muscle relaxant treatments and hair removal treatments in the weeks leading up to your eyebrow enhancement treatment.

Do not be alarmed if the colour appears to be very strong or dark after your eyebrow enhancement treatment; the colour will settle within a couple of weeks. It is advised that you apply a barrier cream such as petroleum jelly to aid the healing process and use a strong SPF as the skin around the area may be more prone to UV damage and over-exposure to the sun’s rays can break down the pigment. Any redness, itching or swelling should subside within 48 hours of the treatment and it is important that you do not scratch or pick at your eyebrows.

You can enjoy your new look for 3 to 4 years and then can decide whether or not to have a top-up treatment. Your eyebrows can instantly give you a striking, glamourous new look, boost your confidence and liberate you from applying makeup every day.
