Alopecia and Chemotherapy Treatments
While Micropigmentation is most often known as a method of achieving fabulous brows, eyeliners and lip effects, there are a wide range of ‘cosmedic’ uses of Permanent Make Up too, namely to alleviate the hair-loss effect of chemotherapy and alopecia, restore the areola following breast surgery, to camouflage scars or to treat vitiligo.
Alopecia and Chemotherapy Related Hair loss
Alopecia is a devastating auto-immune disorder affecting many men and women throughout the world resulting in hair loss on part or all of their bodies. Cosmetic tattooing is an ideal solution to cheating the appearance of natural hairstroke eyebrows and lash lines to boost confidence. Tracie Giles is registered with Alopecia UK.
Permanent MakeUp treatments are also increasingly being endorsed by oncologists as a way of helping patients to feel more positive about the traumatic experience of chemotherapy. Pre-chemotherapy we can capture the appearance of the patient’s natural brows, lashes and hair in order to recreate them if necessary, but can also be performed during chemo (providing the consent of the oncologist is given in writing) and after. These highly effective treatments are increasingly favoured by consultants for their role in giving patients back some control at a difficult and distressing time in their lives.

Breast Work – Areola Reconstruction
Permanent Make Up can be the final step to normality by helping to restore an aesthetically pleasing appearance to the breasts. It is possible to tattoo colour to closely match the patient’s original or remaining areola. The effects are very realistic and natural. An areola and nipple can be tattooed in a colour to closely match the patients own and give a 3Dimensional impression.
Although it’s ideal after most kinds of breast surgery (including augmentation, reduction and uplift treatments), some women just want to darken a naturally light areola. Permanent make up provides the perfect solution and is undetectable from natural colour.
All clients are treated with sensitivity and understanding and a detailed consultation is always undertaken to establish suitability for treatment.
