Cardiovascular problems

Uncontrolled high blood pressure



Diabetes types I and II do not really present a contraindication; however, keep in mind the following aspects:

  • Healing could be compromised.
  • Higher risk for infection.
  • Brown pigments may turn greyish.
  • The pigment may not stay put.

Immune Disorders
Any treatment, medication or illness that compromises the immune system will not make you a good candidate for dermapigmentation.

Bleeding Disorders
Blood disorders that affect clotting such as Haemophilia, Sickle-cell anaemia, and platelet disorders.

Use of certain medications
Roaccutane/ Retin A (acne medication). Medication or treatment that affects the dermal layer of the skin.

If possible, anticoagulants should not be taken 24 hours prior to the pigmentation procedure. It may be taken immediately following the procedure.

NSAID - ( Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen )
These analgesics are diluents; therefore, these should not be taken during 24 hours prior to the procedure. It is permitted to take Paracetamol.

Although alcohol is not a medication, it does act as a diluent. Alcohol should not be taken during 24 hours prior to the procedure.

Prophylactic Antibiotics
Any condition that requires prophylactic antibiotics before dental or other procedures, you will have to take them before Dermapigmentation.

Keloid formation
If you are prone to developing keloids (scars that grow beyond the normal boundaries) you are at risk of keloid formation from Dermapigmentation.

Chronic skin disease or skin anomalies in the area to be pigmented can cause complications.

Please consult with your physician should you have any doubt as to whether Dermapigmentation is safe for you or not.
