Q: Does it hurt?
A: No. Clients might feel some discomfort as the pigment goes through one layer of skin to the second layer, but clients find the treatments very bearable.
Q: Why might I need more than one treatment?
A: The number of treatments required is determined by the nature and size of the targeted area, the individual’s response to the treatment, and other external factors. The mineral pigment used may fade over time, so some touchups may be required. Each treatment lasts roughly 1 to 5 years.
Q: How is pigmentation applied?
A: The pigment is colour-matched to your skin around the affected area and is applied using a tattoo gun.
Q: Do you offer tattoo removal?
A: Currently, we do not offer tattoo removal services, but we will be adding these services soon!
Q: I have age spots that appear lighter in colour. Am I a candidate for micropigmentation?
A: Yes! Micropigmentation can treat age spots, or issues that involve lighter marking on the skin (areas that are hypopigmented). It will not treat darker (or hyperpigmented) areas.
Q: Do you treat old scars?
A: Yes! Scars that have been fully healed and are 6 to 12 months+ old allow us to better match pigmentation and break down the scar tissue to also match skin texture.
Q: I have a scar which is the same colour as my skin. Is there anything to help reduce the appearance of its texture?
A: Yes! We have a procedure called Dry Needling. No pigment is used in this procedure. A medical grade solution is used while Dry Needling the area which smooths out the raised skin.
Q: Do you treat acne scars?
A: Yes, we can treat some individuals for acne scarring, depending on the case. Contact us for a consultation to determine if micropigmentation can help you.

A: Absolutely. All consultations are private and discrete. Clients are treated on an individual basis and we respect your privacy at all times.
