DOES IT HURT?
As a breast cancer survivor, if you’re looking at getting an areola tattoo, then pain may not be something you have to worry about. It’s extremely common for mastectomy surgery to lead to breast numbness. Any surgery causes nerve damage and reduced sensation. During a micropigmentation procedure, you may experience tingling or feel uncomfortable. If you have an implant, you may feel it vibrate throughout the micropigmentation process. If you never had breast surgery, and are opting for an aesthetic areola tattoo, then you could experience pain due to the sensitivity of this area.
WHAT IS THE AREOLA REPIGMENTATION PROCEDURE OR PROCESS?
After cleaning the area, and applying numbing cream, (to reduce the feeling of pain), your permanent makeup artist will apply pigmented ink into the top layer of the skin to create a semi-permanent areola image. The artist must blend and feather the colors to achieve a realistic look. The artist's talent and, ink can add an areola and/or nipple where one did not exist or change the existing areola's shape and/or nipple's shape. Micropigmentation enhances the skin with the appearance of the nipple and areola with pigment colors. Repigmentation recolors the nipple and areola area when the color fades.
