Shampoo,
I know there was a study done on tattoo ink collecting in the lymph nodes that scared a lot of people. But tattoo and micropigmentation are very different in terms of the pigments' composition and the depth they are injected at. (I only inject at .5mm which is the upper dermis, tattoo injects at 2mm the lower dermis.) So a lot of the pigment I inject will be exfoliated out since it's a superficial injection.

The particles that make up Beauty Medical pigment are 15 microns (tattoo particles are 20+ microns and all shapes) in size and they go through a filter so each particle is perfectly round in size. This allows the body's cell defense system to "eat" and expel the particle. Milena speaks more about the composition/ingredients of the pigments which you'll see are quite safe.

MattJ,
Thanks! Fade times will vary based on sun/chlorine exposure, as well as the person's own system. Most guys will go at least 1 year before needing a touchup. A small percentage come back sooner, and some will go longer than 2 years. It all depends on the needs, too. For instance, a full shaved look client with no hairline gets a lot of aesthetic benefit from just having a hairline to frame the face. This type of client is usually not as concerned about darkness/density so he could go longer before requiring a touchup.

For thickening procedure clients it's all about the density/darkness so they might need touchups more frequently. However, Thickening clients also tend to have more hair which provides some coverage from the sun.

I have a particularly annoying scar, and a friend recommended dermalmd's scar serum to me. Any time I forget to use it my scar goes back to itching and stinging the next day, although not as badly as it used to. It takes very little at a time unless you have a truly large scar, so it lasts quite a while. I'm very grateful to have found this, because the scar hurt *constantly* before I started using this.Its clear now. This serum is the most effective for healing wounds and scars.

I like the fact that it is made of natural ingredient. No harmful chemicals or fragrances, so you won’t have to worry about it causing any problems to the body. I have been using dermalmd scar product now.
It was very easy to apply, it is not messy and does not have any bad smell. It also dries very quickly. I have had very good results with this.
