Medical Tattooing

Medical tattooing, also known as paramedical tattooing or cosmetic tattooing, is a procedure in which specialized pigments are implanted into the skin to improve the appearance of scars, skin discoloration, or other skin conditions. This technique is commonly used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy, areola repigmentation, scar camouflage, and correction of skin pigmentation disorders such as vitiligo.

Medical tattooing, also called micropigmentation, is a cosmetic procedure that enhances or restores the appearance of features on the face and body. It's often used to address scarring, alopecia, and breast reconstruction. At Versailles Medical Spa, our skilled and licensed medical tattoo artists use advanced techniques and high-quality organic pigments to create natural-looking results that meet the unique needs of each patient.

Medical Tattooing

What makes medical tattooing unique is its ability to address specific cosmetic concerns that traditional tattooing cannot. Unlike traditional tattoos, medical tattooing involves using specialized techniques and pigments to create a natural-looking appearance that blends seamlessly with the surrounding skin. Medical tattoo artists must have extensive training and experience in order to create accurate and realistic results that meet the individual needs of each patient. Medical tattooing is also a valuable solution for those who have experienced medical conditions or trauma that have affected their appearance. At Versailles Medical Spa, we offer medical tattooing as a personalized solution to enhance and restore the natural beauty of each individual patient.

Before & After

Transformed and glowing! Witness the remarkable before and after results of our rejuvenating treatment. Unveil your beauty.


Permanent makeup can enhance your life, by giving you freedom from the daily grind of applying and reapplying your makeup. This artistic process involves choosing a natural, soft cosmetic approach that will enhance your facial appearance. The knowledge of which colors to choose and how best to blend with skin tones are two of the factors that set our team apart. 

Athletes, sports enthusiasts, and men and women with active lifestyles are great candidates for permanent makeup. Results will vary in each client according to the shade, size, and location of the makeup. The most commonly treated areas include:

  • Eyebrows
  • Eyeliner
  • Lip Color
  • Lip Liner
  • Areola
  • Scars

The primary goal of medical tattooing is to help restore a patient’s self-confidence. Medical conditions and treatments can often cause issues with pigment loss and scarring or in the case of mastectomy, the loss of the nipple-areola complex. Our Versailles Medical Spa team is highly compassionate with patients who make the choice to undergo medical tattooing, and we will be by your side, guiding you through each step of the process. 

Skin and Scar Camouflage

Skin and scar camouflage procedures involve the use of different shades of skin-colored pigments to disguise a scar or improve irregular pigment around the area. This technique requires a highly skilled specialist who understands the specifics of matching pigments and the physiology of human skin. 

Nipple-Areola Repair

After a mastectomy, women may be left with an altered or missing nipple-areola area. The Versailles Medical Spa team is experienced in the use of the specialized medical tattooing processes needed to recreate symmetrical and natural-looking breasts. The benefits of this procedure include minimal downtime and healing, semi-permanent results that last a very long time, and pigment that is sweat, water, and smear-proof. 

Considered a long-term aesthetic solution for thinning hair, scalp micropigmentation, also called scalp shading, looks natural and restores your bald scalp to look like a full head of hair. The procedure involves creating the illusion of hair with organic pigment. Using a micro-needle to create pigmented strokes, scalp micropigmentation is an excellent option for patients with alopecia, scarring, scalp discoloration, and hair loss. 

The Benefits of Scalp Shading

  • Effective for most hair colors and styles
  • Provides thicker-looking hair
  • Looks natural
  • Nonsurgical with minimal downtime

Traditional permanent makeup pigments can, at times, fade and require correction or removal. Our team is skilled at using advanced techniques to correct or remove undesired pigment for a more natural appearance. The non-toxic, mineral-based pigment is gently vibrated into the dermal layer of the skin using a single acupuncture needle. Next, it is applied in thin layers using individual hair stokes until the ideal color and shape are produced. The procedure typically takes around an hour to complete with very little downtime afterward. A member of our team will meet with you during a complimentary consultation to understand your needs and desires before recommending one of the following techniques: 

  • Removal – Reducing the appearance of undesired permanent makeup
  • Remodeling – Using the old outlines and locations to create a more appealing appearance
  • Restoring – A combination of the reduction and remodeling techniques to achieve the desired result

Microblading is incredibly popular and with good reason. The semi-permanent eyebrow technique allows patients to achieve their desired eyebrow shape and shade without penciling or plucking. Microblading is currently the most advanced eyebrow technique, offering stunning, natural-looking results. The process involves the precise and artistic application of pigmented hair strokes throughout the brow area. The tattooed strokes look just like real hair! This procedure is especially beneficial for patients who have overplucked or lost their eyebrows from medical conditions or treatments. Versailles Medical Spa is the first licensed microblading provider in the Darien, CT area.

Our cosmetic and medical tattooing procedures are performed by experienced, professional and passionate individuals who are focused on helping you restore your confidence and boost your natural beauty. We invite you to schedule a no-obligation complimentary consultation at our Darien, CT medical spa today to learn more about these exciting nonsurgical procedures.
