Q: Is the procedure painful?
A: A topical anesthetic is used to minimize discomfort.
Q: Do I have choices on colors?
A: Absolutely. We take the time to understand your desire so that you get the best possible outcome. There is a wide spectrum of colors from which you can choose.
Q: Do I have a choice in pigment placement?
A: Yes, of course. During your consultation, we will work together to determine design and pigment placement.
Q: What type of recovery is involved?
A: Usually, there is a slight swelling and redness immediately after the procedure, but should subside quickly. You can resume normal activity when the procedure has been completed. Complete healing takes one to six weeks while the pigment matures and reaches its final color.
