Usually about one year after a scar has healed, a technique called MCA is used to relax, flatten and soften the scar.
MCA causes the body to go into a state of natural self-repair.
In most cases once skin is re-pigmented the color is permanent and will tan and fade the same as the surrounding skin.
If the scar does not re-pigment on its own, carefully selected shades of pigments can also be implanted to match the scar to the color of the surrounding skin.
Areola and Nipple Reconstruction or Enhancement
Many women today have undergone a mastectomy, breast reduction, augmentation, reconstruction or uplift. Unfortunately these surgeries often leave behind unsightly and in some case dramatic scarring. An optical reconstruction of the areola and nipple tissue can be carried out following surgery once the breast has healed. Using carefully selected shades of pigment, the nipple and areola complex is realistically recreated with 3 dimensional shading.
Prior to the treatment a thorough consultation is carried out to determine the most pleasing position, shape, colour and size. MCA is also used to reduce outlying scars on the surrounding breast tissue. If you naturally have pale areolas, then the pigments can also be used to darken or add a youthful flush of colour to the areola.
