Areola Tattooing

For many breast cancer survivors, it can be traumatic to undergo a mastectomy. Fortunately, women can restore a feeling of normalcy by getting a 3d nipple tattoo in Las Vegas to closely resemble the way that their nipple once appeared, including pigment, so that the area looks much more natural and realistic.

What is areola tattooing?

Areola tattooing is a cosmetic treatment performed on the chest where the areola is located. It can change the nipple appearance to resemble natural nipples, helping the patient restore their appearance and boost their self-esteem.

Areola tattooing is performed in a similar manner as conventional tattoos. The ink is deposited under the skin to create the desired image, although in the case of areola tattooing, the ink is placed closer to the surface of the skin.

Benefits of Areola Tattooing

Many breast cancer survivors undergo breast reconstruction surgery, only to be left feeling uncomfortable in their own bodies. Areola tattooing basically forms a new nipple, or at least the appearance of one. This can have a powerful positive effect upon breast cancer survivors, allowing them to become more comfortable in their own skin.

3D nipple tattoo in Las Vegas can help women regain much of the appearance that they have lost, leading to a dramatic boost in self-confidence. It also provides a good alternative to those wanting something faster and easier than nipple reconstruction surgery.

One important point is that areola tattooing isn't only for breast cancer survivors who underwent breast reconstruction surgery, and one or more of their nipples was impacted. If your nipples were left intact after surgery, the area may become scarred or distorted. Tattooing can provide a visual improvement to help improve size, shape and nipple color.

Areola Tattooing Process

Getting an areola tattoo is similar to eyebrow microblading. Your Genesis Lifestyle Medicine aesthetician will first meet with you to plan a tattoo that meet your aesthetic goals, including nipple size and placement, as well as the colors that will complement the surrounding skin.

After numbing your skin in the treatment area, your aesthetician will use the Nouveau Contour IQ device to perform your areola tattooing. The IQ device is an advanced piece of technology that can perform anywhere from 70 to 150 needle insertions every second. Its remarkable precision makes it perfect for 3D nipple tattoo in Las Vegas.

The numbing lotion will ensure that you do not experience any pain during your treatment. You may still notice some slight sensations of pressure or scratching. The entire process may take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours for each breast, depending upon your individual situation.

Areola Tattooing Aftercare

The process of recovering from areola tattooing is pretty basic. Avoid getting the covering placed over your tattoos wet to avoid affecting the pigment. Keep the area covered for at least 24 hours to prevent possible bleeding.

A day after your 3D nipple tattoo in Las Vegas, you should be cleared to take a shower or bath, but avoid scrubbing the area using soap, as well as submerging it in water.

It can take anywhere from 10 to 14 days to heal from an areola tattooing. During this time, your new tattoo will start scabbing over, which protects the area while it is healing. Later, the area will naturally peel. Just make sure that you do not try to speed up the process by picking at your scabs. Let them fall away naturally to avoid exposing the vulnerable, developing skin underneath.
