RESTORATIVE TATTOOING POST MASTECTOMY
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique which deposits small amounts of pigment into the dermis to produce designs that resemble makeup, provide artificial eyebrows or disguise scars or white spots in the skin. These techniques can also be used to restore or enhance the breast’s areola following a mastectomy procedure from breast cancer or breast augmentation.
Join Jeanine McTasney, a restorative ink specialist with over 20 years of experience, to learn more about restorative tattooing post-mastectomy.
12:30 P.M. - 1:30 P.M.
