Top Selected Paramedical Tattooing Procedures by Men

You can’t tell a book by its cover; but if the cover isn’t attractive, you won’t pick up the book. That’s the challenge American men are facing both in the workplace and on the social scene. Keeping an attractive outside “cover” gives you a competitive edge. To achieve the attractive appearance they need to succeed professionally and socially, more males are turning to paramedical tattooing.

New Challenges

Today’s man faces new challenges that have focused greater attention on appearance:

  • With men living longer and retiring later, skill is not enough to survive competition from younger rivals. Corporations want leaders that exude both mature experience and youthful vigor.
  • Guys are also dating later in life. Career focused young adults are marrying later, and divorce is pushing middle-aged men back onto the dating scene.

Look the Part

Both in the workplace and socially, if you want something, you have to look the part. Paramedical tattooing is a specialized form of cosmetic tattooing that can noticeably improve appearance. The most popular paramedical tattoo procedures for men are:

  • Scar camouflage. Using paramedical tattoo techniques, scar tissue can be expertly blended into surrounding tissue, causing it to “disappear.” The procedure can camouflage unsightly scars from accidents or surgery (including hair transplant and face lift scars) and hide natural skin imperfections.

Highlighting Trichotillomania

Many use the procedure as a cosmetic enhancement to add permanent color to lips, cheeks, eyebrows, eyelids, and to add the appearance of a mustache or beard. Those who suffer from the disease, Alopecia Areata Universalis, also benefit from medical tattooing to cover bald spots.

Another reason for medical tattooing is for those who suffer from the medical issue known as trichotillomania. This condition results from repeated pulling out of body hair and facial hair including eyelashes and eyelashes. Repeated picking at skin areas due to this condition can also occur resulting in scarring.

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.
