Tip #1: Breasts are seldom perfectly symmetrical. In the above case, we made the Left areola slightly smaller than the Right areola to compensate for the differences in size of the breasts. Colors used: Kolorsource Baby Lips. Highlights: Neutral Flesh; Shadow: Brown Sugar. The new Dixon DITTO™ needle was used in the Nouveau PRO handpiece which will be available November 2nd. The Ditto™ is two-rows of 5 Slope® needles. Twice as much of a good thing.
Tip #2: Nancy Rolfs RN, of Michigan, joined us in Las Vegas for Bootcamp Breasts on October 11th and shared an interesting "tip" on how she approaches areola tattooing. She sends her patients home with Band-Aid Round "Spots" and has them place them on their breasts where they would like to see them. When they come in for their procedure, they have the bandaids placed where they like them and Nancy uses their choice as a guide. Search term online: Band-aid Round Spots. They're 7/8" round. Keep a box of 100 spots handy.
