Permanent medical make-up
Permanent medical make-up also known as Medical Micropigmentation is the camouflaging of skin disorders, discolorations and injuries caused from surgeries or accidental injuries as well as aging. The people that benefit from medical meaku up procedures are such as the following:
- Many people are scarred from surgeries as well as accidents
- Women who have reconstructive breast surgery and desire to have their areolas repigmented or reconstructed
- Many women lose their brows and eyelashes from chemotherapy treatments
- Both Male and Female clients who have suffered burns can also benefit from paramedical procedures. The skin in most cases can be permanently colored with skin tones to blend with natural skin tones around the areas
- Vitiligo: a skin disorder in which a loss of cells that give colour to the skin called melanocytes results in smooth, white patches in the midst of pigmented skin
Vitiligo is a common, often inherited disorder characterized by areas of well-defined, milky white skin. People with vitiligo may have eye abnormalities and also have a higher incidence of thyroid disease, diabetes mellitus, and pernicious anemia. Vitiligo affects about 1-2% of the world's population. It is more easily observed in sun-exposed areas of the body and in darker skin types, but it affects any area of the body and all races. Vitiligo seems to affect men and women equally, although women more frequently seek treatment for the disorder.
Vitiligo may appear as one or two well-defined white patches or it may appear over large portions of the body. Typical sites for generalized vitiligo are areas surrounding body openings, bony areas, fingers, and toes. It can begin at any age but about 50% of the time it starts before the age of 20.
Causes & symptoms of Vitiligo
Vitiligo is a disorder with complex causes. People with vitiligo seem to inherit a genetic predisposition for the disorder, and the appearance of disorder can be brought on by a variety of precipitating causes. Many people report that their vitiligo first appeared following a traumatic or stressful event, such as an accident, job loss, death of a family member, severe sunburn, or serious illness. There are at least three theories about the underlying mechanism of vitiligo. One theory says nerve endings in the skin release a chemical that is toxic to the melanocytes. A second theory states that the melanocytes simply self-destruct. The third explanation is that vitiligo is a type of autoimmune disease in which the immune system targets the body's own cells and tissues.
The primary symptom of vitiligo is the loss of skin color. Hair growing from the affected skin areas also lacks color. In addition, people with vitiligo may have pigment abnormalities of the retina or iris of the eyes. A minority of patients also may have inflammation of the retina or iris, but vision is not usually impaired.
How to Diagnose Vitiligo
The diagnosis of vitiligo is usually made by observation. Progressive, white areas found at typical sites point to a diagnosis of vitiligo. If the diagnosis is not certain, the doctor will test for other conditions which can mimic vitiligo, such as chemical leukoderma or systemic lupus erythematosus. If the tests rule out other conditions, vitiligo is confirmed.
The treatment of vitiligo
Vitiligo has been known as an incurable disease till now and the only efforts are to prevent the new lesions to be formed.
At the first step, a pulsed uv is applied to the lesion for a few times and the residual lesions are permanently maked-up; so losing the lesions near total.
Three-Dimentional Nipple- Areola Reconstruction
After reconstructing the breast the nipple is reconstructed at the most projecting part of the breast with the symmetry with the other one. This newly created nipple-areola complex is permanently maked up. A skilled expert scar camouflage technician will be able to work wonders on even the most delicate parts of your body.
Unsightly Birthmarks, Eyebrows, Lip Deformity
Some people would like to cover up unsightly birthmarks. This can be achieved with special color correcting and repigmentation one can achieve amazing results.
Eyebrows that have been signed by fire or have retarded growth can be filled up with simulated hair strokes. Many women choose to have eyebrows filled in this way.
If you have an unbalanced lip because of an accident or birth deficit, or the result of a cleft lip surgery, the shape can be modified with scar camouflaging. Micro pigmentation would be the last stage in the reconstruction of a cleft lip. The first treatment will be surgery.
All of these procedures are relatively simple and very little if any pain, discomfort or downtime is involved. The main benefit from having these procedures performed is the emotional satisfaction one regains which can be life changing to say the least.
Burn Scars And Skin Grafts
The burn scars are first evaluated if there are any surgical options, the contractures are corrected at this time. after the surgery the laser treatment is applied to the scar for a fex times. Camouflage pigments are applied as a final procedure.
Camouflage pigments can also be used to blend colour to surrounding skin tissue, this is also extremely successful on skin grafts.
