Medical Tattooing Refreshes Do You Need One?

While most aficionados of tattooing consider it more art than science, the practitioners at the Whitney Center for Permanent Cosmetics realize that there is a great deal of science that goes into the proper application and care of paramedical tattoos especially when it comes to its placement on the face.

Typically, medical tattooing involves the placement of permanent eyebrows with hair stroke simulation, lip coloration and other restorative procedures as well as scar or hair loss camouflage. While firmly established as legitimate medicine, these procedures do need touchups over the years to stay looking fresh. Thus the idea that they need refreshing was born

The reason is fairly simple though the solution is not. As the body ages, the skin around the eyes and other parts of the face and body tend to move to a slight degree. Refreshing or “touch-ups” deal with this issue by adding incremental tattoing to “clean-up” the tattoo.

Do you need a paramedical tattoo refreshing?

The answer is a resounding Yes, but how often will really be a factor based on your own skin’s chemistry.

To clarify, will you need a paramedical tattoo refresh at some point in time, most likely. The only issue will be whether the your, the patient, after a number of years, feels that the tattoo needs replenishing of pigment. This situation can be particularly relevant for Asian and African-American woman whose special needs require extra care.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s that time of year again where you start to see pink ribbons on every one around. In case you don;t know, it means that National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is here. Held every October for the last 30 years, this laudable event is sponsored by every major breast cancer charity in the world.

NBCAM’s stated goal is to simply raise awareness about the disease especially among young women who may feel they are not at risk. Some of the more notable events on the itinerary include include:

The National Race for the CureStarted in Dallas over three decades ago with just 800 participants, this event now boasts almost 1.5 million – yes, million – participants in over 100 separate cities.

The Susan G. Kamen 3-day, For the Cure – An international event with the residents of multiple cities participating, it takes some tenacity and a whole lot of effort to walk the entire 60 miles of the event even if you do get three days to do it.

A Month In Pink – Sponsored by an unlikely source, the Great Architect gaming community, this event is a little more sedate. All they ask is that you show some solidarity with the cancer victims and wear pink for the entire month.

Every year these laudable events raise millions for the funding of research into the cause of breast cancer, its prevention, diagnosis and treatment as well as the search for a cure.
