MICROPIGMENTATION FOR MEN
Nowadays, most men have been looking for procedures that involve subtle interventions to harmonize their facial features and to improve body aesthetics, which is why dermopigmentation has been increasingly sought after.
Dermopigmentation in men is done in a specific way so that the masculine traits can be maintained. After years of specialization, studies, and tests, I developed the Iwama Sensitive Technique, a delicate way to work with ink on the skin, resulting in colors closer to the real ones, and a much more natural and satisfying look for the male clients.
In all dermopigmentation procedures – eyebrows, breasts, lips, and others –, I work delicately, avoiding bleeding, offering a nearly pain-free experience. One of the uniqueness of my technique is that it does not affect the deeper tissues. I optimize the application of the ink on the skin, allowing greater color stability, even over time.
In addition to the most advanced knowledge and notoriety of my technique, the procedure is performed in a clean and safe environment, at a reputable medical center located in Boca Raton, Florida, USA.
Following the rules stipulated by the Florida Department of Health, we keep our licenses and insurance up to date. All material is strictly disposable and sterilized, valuing safety, transparency, and health protection for all customers and the entire team.
Although dermopigmentation is a gender-neutral semi-permanent technique, we are very aware that our male clients have specific enhancement needs and are attuned to those differences. We understand that women go to salons and men go to barbershops for a reason-- but there is no need to worry about that here. We are a group of artists trained by expert cosmetic and medical tattoo artist Priscila Iwama and we tailor our approach to each and individual client.
Every man is different, but overall, men want masculine and natural features. The goal for our clients is that during their day-to-day, in-person encounters, no one can tell they’ve enhanced their features-- and we pride ourselves on keeping the mastery of our art hidden.
Don’t just take our word for it, let our results speak for themselves.
Male lip dermopigmentation is performed to restore the natural tone of the lips, which fades over the years. It is also used to enhance the lips' natural contour and mainly to correct asymmetries on them.
The procedure is done so subtly that after performing it, we notice the revitalization of the original color of the lips, leaving them with a naturally healthy aspect. The lips' pigment fades up to 50% after the lips heal. Its average durability is 6 months to 1 and a half years, depending on the client.
I use a numbing cream on the site, and I introduce the pigment in a non-invasive way through a dermograph, in addition to using technological equipment that provides greater comfort during and after the procedure, such as a low-intensity laser that further optimizes the result.
There are also men who adhere to the procedure to correct aesthetic dissatisfactions such as pale, purplish lips, with spots, scars, the disproportionality of the upper or lower lip, and even cleft lip, upon medical release.
Areola dermopigmentation is a procedure sought by men who are dissatisfied with the shape and color of their areolas, scars, and especially those who have undergone surgeries that caused bodily changes such as total or partial removal of the areolas. As these situations generate physical and emotional damage, many men adhere to the technique to restore their confidence and self-esteem, maintaining their natural look.
Most men seeking this procedure have lost their areola due to complications in gynecomastia or pseudo gynecomastia surgeries. These conditions are the result of hormonal changes that cause the enlargement of the mammary gland. Among the leading causes are exposure to anabolic steroid hormones, puberty, natural aging, and significant weight gain.
I also perform this procedure in breast cancer survivors. They are more uncommon due to the low incidence of breast cancer in men, and the lack of knowledge that makes male breast tumors take time to be noticed, being thus diagnosed at an advanced stage.
Other cosmetic issues related to asymmetries, color, and size of the aureoles, are considered less complex and can be easily repaired through breast dermopigmentation.
The procedure is performed both on eyebrows that have sparse hair or missing hair, as well as on those that only need asymmetry correction to balance the proportion between them. Each hair stroke design is based on both the color and the thickness of the natural existing hair. And as the hair strokes are drawn to blend in with the existing hair, it makes the result very real and natural, subtly harmonizing the facial features.
The procedure is also indicated for people who have scars, little or no hair in the area, due to loss caused by hormonal problems, stress, natural aging, or even cases of alopecia. The durability of the pigment is, on average, 8 to 18 months, depending on the type of skin, the client's metabolism, and proper care. Because my technique is very delicate, most of the time, there's no immediate redness in the area, making possible to see the quality of the result right after the procedure.
