Dermatological use of Cosmetic Tattooing (skin problems)
Hair follicle tattooing is a modern method that gives the feeling of a natural looking scalp.
It can be more obvious as the light background of the scalp is visible. The difference in the lighter background and the thinned hair that is remaining, can be narrowed by the advanced technique of tattoo hair simulation.
Stretch marks are caused due to a crack in the epidermal layer. They expose the dermis that is generally lighter in colour. Various techniques are available to remedy stretch marks like laser and PRP etc. After treatment of stretch marks and accomplishing flat and smooth skin; in some instances, the difference in colour can become a concern. Cosmetic tattooing is the perfect solution as it matches up with the colour of the skin, thus concealing the stretch marks.

Directly after treatment the colour will appear much darker than what you aimed for but it will gradually lighten. Roughly about 20% to 40% is lost during the recovery period in 4-14 days. Lip colour can be an exception where you could lose up to 80% during recovery.

What other important information should I know?
At Chelsea Cosmetics we aim to match colour as perfectly to the patients colour as we can.
However, colour matching can be challenging in some cases with factors like pigment, acid, oils in the skin and not following the Home Care information affecting the end result of the pigment colour in the skin.
Some skins respond better to cosmetic tattooing as opposed to others. In a few unusual cases the skin may not grasp the colour due to various factors.
Since semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing has been introduced and promoted about 14 years ago, the life of the colours in the skin is still being examined.
A retouch every 12 months is strongly recommended to retain the fresh look.
