Medical Cosmetic Tattooing

Charmaine is now proud to provide Areola Reconstruction.

Charmaine is keen to help survivors of major surgery regain their confidence. Medical Tattooing is an advanced permanent makeup technique.

Before your treatment

Charmaine will take the time to look at the tone, pigment, and hues of your skin tone along with the size and shape of your breast. A thorough consultation will enable Charmaine to achieve the best possible results and make sure that your areola reconstruction is as authentic as possible.

The Process

Medical Permanent Makeup follows the same principles as eyebrow tattoo’s in that the process itself is relatively pain-free you may feel a slight discomfort; however, Charmaine will apply a localised anaesthetic cream to the area which will help to alleviate any pain.


Post-treatment the colouring of your reconstructed areola will typically appear darker than normal, this will fade over the coming days and weeks, and the colouring will become more natural if you have a high level of scarring.

It may be the case you will need a top up treatment to perfect the area.

Post-treatment Charmaine will apply a dressing and provide you with some defined aftercare steps.

Charmaine offers this treatment free of charge to survivors of major surgery.

More about Nipple & Areola Micropigmentation

Nipple and areola reconstruction can help a breast cancer survivor feel more comfortable with her new breasts. Some women find they are content without having a nipple at all, while others choose a form of reconstruction that does not require surgery.

Nipple reconstruction can only completed after the reconstructed breast has had time to heal (usually requiring three to four months) and after any necessary radiation treatment. We will require consent from your doctor should you wish to go ahead with this procedure and Charmaine, together with out salon staff will ensure that your visit to the salon for this procedure is both comfortable and stress-free.


What is the expected benefit of having this procedure?

The aim of nipple and areola micropigmentation is to improve the aesthetic appearance of the breast by recreating, as closely as possible, a nipple and areola that mimics the existing nipple and areola (if applicable). This has a positive effect of improving body image and boosting self esteem.


Are there factors that may affect the result?

The result of micropigmentation is partly determined by individual skin type but can also be affected by:

    • natural skin overtones
    • skin characteristics (dryness, oiliness, sun damage, acidity)
    • medication
    • lifestyle, such as alcohol, smoking, swimming or jacuzzi
    • individual healing ability
    • presence of any scars
