Areola & Nipple Repigmentation

Areola and nipple re-pigmentation also known as areola tattooing, areola micropigmnetation or areola restoration, is an advanced medical micropigmentation treatment that involves creating an incredibly realistic 3D nipple and areola. Specialised pigments are gently placed into the dermal layer of the skin using a variety of needles to help mimic a natural areola and three dimensional nipple.

Before you come for your initial treatment you would be invited for a consultation. During this appointment, the colour and size will be discussed along with your expectations. The pigment colour will be chosen to best match the shade of your other areola and nipple (if applicable). Alternatively, if you are having both breasts (bilateral) treated then further discussions around colour will be had. The aim of the treatment is to recreate an areola and/or nipple that looks as realistic as the existing nipple and areola (if applicable). Pigment is applied to the top layer of the skin with a digital machine which uses a cluster of fine sterile needles to implant semi-permanent colour (pigment).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How many treatments are required?

    Most patients require one initial treatment followed by a second appointment to build up the pigment colour. Possible follow-up treatments in the future may be required if the pigment fades. Time scales for future top ups varies from person to person.

  • Do the results fade?

    On average, the results usually last around 3-5 years. For the best and long lasting results, you would be required to return for the colour to be topped up. There are a number of factors that can affect how long your results last for: • Medication • Sun exposure • Skin type (dryness, oiliness, sun damage, thickness, colour) • Alcohol intake • Smoking • Illness • Swimming (chlorine can bleach the colour from the tattoo)

  • Does Areola Micropigmentation Hurt?

    This varies from person-to-person as everyone’s pain threshold is different. Some clients feel some discomfort and a scratchy sensation, yet others don’t feel anything at all.

  • Am I suitable for this treatment?

    There are a number of reasons why women and men desire and require areola and nipple re-pigmentation. We can work on the diffusion of scars, areola re-sizing and symmetry correction, nipple colour enhancement and full areola reconstruction following surgical procedures. Whatever your reason, our technicians have extensive knowledge in this area. We also work closely with a select group of surgeons to ensure the best outcome for you. To have this procedure you must be over the age of 18 years old. If you are pregnant or breast feeding, we are also unable to perform this treatment on you. Areola and Nipple re-pigmentation can apply to anyone from those who are seeking breast augmentation, are recovering from post mastectomy, the transgender community and men with gynaecomastia or a person who simply wants to enhance the colour or shape of their natural areola are suitable for this treatment. You can set up a free consultation with us today to find out more about whether you are suitable for this treatment.

  • What aftercare is recommended?

    Your technician will give you all of the appropriate aftercare in full after your treatment. You may experience some swelling/redness for up to 48 hours after your treatment. During the healing process you will experience some scabbing of the area. Please do not pick at the area as this may risk infection or pulling pigment out of the area. Try to keep the area as dry as possible during the healing process. We recommend you do not swim, sunbathe or use a sauna/jacuzzi for 2 weeks after the procedure.
