Breast micropigmentation is a medical micropigmentation procedure used to restore the areolas and nipples' appearance, increasing women's self-esteem and confidence. Women can use it to fulfill their desire to change the tone or shape of their nipples and areolas; or be referred by plastic surgeons in mastectomy, mammoplasty, or mastopexy cases.
First, I draw directly on your skin with an eyeliner pencil. Then we evaluate all the details together to achieve the ideal harmony. The desired color is introduced in a non-invasive way through a dermograph using specific inks and needles. It creates a 3D depth perception, imitating the areolas and nipples' design in an exclusive and unique way for each person, resulting in a natural appearance.
My focus has always been on maintaining my clients' skin integrity and health. So, I created The Iwama Sensitive, a technique that allows me to work on skins as sensitive as the areolar skin. My method consists of gentle dermopigmentation that avoids bleeding and is practically painless.
Another that my technique differs from others is that I do not affect the deeper tissues. This way, I can optimize the implementation of pigment in the skin, increasing the procedure's durability and achieving a balanced color degradation, with no uneven spots found, even over the years.
I use an anesthetic cream and high-tech equipment that provides greater comfort during and after the procedure. The equipment set includes a low-intensity laser that further optimizes the result and ultrasonic massagers that provide better absorption of soothing healing products while cooling the area.
The benefits range from increased self-esteem and self-confidence – in cases of total or partial loss from reconstruction surgery – to the correction of aesthetic dissatisfaction – such as changing the shape of the areolas or lightening or darkening them.
I can also correct imperfections in people who have scars, and even fibrosis, upon medical approval.
The choice of shape and tone is based on the client's preference, skin tone, daily habits, and the original color if there are any references.
All procedures are performed in a safe environment that complies with all biosafety rules stipulated by the Florida State Department of Health in the USA. Also, all material is strictly sterilized and disposable.
My office is located in a reputable medical clinic in Boca Raton, which owns all the required operating licenses. Thus, ensuring safety, transparency, and health protection for all customers and the entire team.
Complete healing takes an average of 45 days, occurring gradually and smoothly, with no sign of any reaction: no pain, itching, scabs, or visible flaking. In the first three days, you will observe a more vivid and intense color. On the fourth day, a subtle peeling can occur in the area, revealing a lighter color. Days later, you will be able to see the actual color of the dermopigmentation, which in some cases, may present a loss of up to 50% of the pigment immediately after the procedure.
DURABILITY AND TOUCH-UPS
The durability is anywhere from 18 to 24 months. It may be even longer, depending on the type of skin, metabolism, and habits you have. Genetic factors can also influence durability as well as how much you abide by the procedure aftercare guidelines. About 18 months later, new touch-ups can be done, if necessary.
It is always at the discretion of my clients. I provide aftercare instructions and specific products to hydrate the skin and to boost the healing process immediately after the procedure.
All guidelines must be followed to achieve maximum results. I use the best and most advanced products and equipment, different needles, and pigment tones to reproduce the most accurate depiction possible, maintaining a natural look.
Medical authorization is required to perform breast dermopigmentation in people with a history of plastic surgery. Also, the area to be treated must be fully healed for at least six months. In cases of cancer survivors, in addition to the requirements mentioned above, the patient must have completed her treatment.
As much as it is a safe and effective technique, it is not recommended for:
Women who are breastfeeding;
People with uncontrolled diabetes;
People who use anticoagulant drugs;
Or people have a history of keloids.
If you have any questions, I recommend seeing your doctor to ensure that the procedure can be safely performed.
