When it comes to looking good our services can be your best kept secret. This month check out the articles on some of our most requested procedures for men.

Paramedical Micropigmentation Camouflages Harvest Sites

Skin imperfections from surgeries can be easily camouflaged. This is because micropigmentation has the ability to break up the scar tissue and color it to better match the natural surrounding skin tone.

For those men that have chosen a hair transplant as a way of filling in sparse areas, paramedical micropigmentation can disguise the areas that have been used for harvesting.

Typical Scarring

Typical Scarring

As you can see in the photos, the "plug" style of hair transplant is no longer the norm. Now a single strip of donor tissue from the back of the scalp is used for the transplant. This hair-bearing tissue is then further divided into smaller sections using a dissecting stereo-microscope before being grafted onto the new site.

Typical scarring can be made into an almost invisible line, thanks to Melany's artistry for scar camouflage. And six weeks later, the "perfecting" session can create even more remarkable coverage of the scar area, leaving the harvesting area almost undetectable after Melany artistically blends in all areas.

For those men who haven't yet decided if transplantation is right for them, they may want to consider micropigmentation as an alternative. Adding pigment that matches the pattern of hair growth to the area that has become sparse can make the "bald spots" appear much smaller and give the illusion of a fuller head of hair.

Cosmetic Tattooing for Men

BeforeMen may not feel comfortable using makeup or other products that may disguise small imperfections temporarily, but might also become obvious in certain light, or in the case of sweating or if it rains. But cosmetic tattooing offers hope.

Men have used micropigmentation to disguise the beginning stages of hair loss. Micropigmentation fills in the area of thinning or the slight bald patch, making it appear as if hair is indeed growing there. In contrast to powders or sprays you may see advertised, it only requires one application and won't come off—especially when it counts—during sports, when running for a meeting, in the rain, or in the shower at the club.

Men have also used micropigmentation to enhance their eyebrows after the hair has thinned or become lighter in color, or to enhance the look of their eyes after eyelash loss. Generally, the process of aging makes all of us look a bit tired, but this procedure can offer the appearance of youthful exuberance.

AfterCosmetic tattooing can also camouflage scars, which is especially useful when they're located within an area of hair growth, such as within an eyebrow or sideburn, on the cheek or along the jaw line, or even above the lip.

And speaking of lips, for men whose lips require a slight correction from scarring, unevenness or discoloration, cosmetic tattooing can help there too!
