Medical (Para-Medical) tattooing is the practice of implanting semi-permanent pigment into the skin to enhance physical appearance of the skin and scar tissue.
Scars from surgery, mastectomy, breast lift, breast augmentation, and trauma can be visually minimized over a course of treatments.
Unlike traditional tattoo ink, the pigment used for cosmetic tattooing is semi-permanent. Over time, the body will naturally break down the pigment; the tattoo will fade and eventually disappear.
The length of time the semi-permanent pigment will last varies by individual, but typically ranges from 1-5 years or more for certain applications.
