Arrow TricoPigmentation into scars.

TricoPigmentation into scars.

I have been receiving a number of emails about TP into scars since my recent session by Milena Lardi in Milan.

Bare in mind that if you want TP into your strip scar for example then the scar requires a "test session" 7-10 days prior to the actual session (5mins) to see if the scar tissue is conducive with the technique and colour used. This is a necessity. The actual main TP sessions in the scar are approx 30 mins for scars ( depending on size/length) , followed up by a check over the following day ( 5/10 mins).

The TP session then requires (ideally) a refinement session 1 month after this. ( This is for all TP patients, not just scar patients ) I intend to get mine done in NY in September when Milena visits Dr Feller s office.

This can obviously cause inconvenience for guys not living local to Milan and we are finding especially for UK guys wanting to go to Italy to have TP that the timelines and repeat/return sessions required are proving a big hurdle. Other SMP clinics might not require a test or a follow up session with their permanent methods. You need to due your own due diligence there.

However - I know that due to the increasing interest shown in the recent TP technique I received, that the clinic I used are intending to travel to the UK in the not too distant future and return on a monthly basis/cycle to help accommodate the UK patient interest and save all the travelling /inconvenience.

I hope this helps.
