history, evaluate your health and choose the most appropriate shade to complement
your skins tones. The risks, type or anesthesia as well as the cost will be reviewed.
Most procedures take between 1 to 2 hrs under a local or topical anesthetic. The
pigment color will be implanted in your skin using a motorized instrument and sterile
needles. After the procedure you may experience swelling redness or tenderness at
the pigmented site. The pigmented site will be covered with a greasy ointment or
dressing. You will be given after-care instructions. Most patients resume normal
activities within 24 hours.
