Medical Micropigmentation tattooing can be used in burn scars in the same way as cosmetic camouflage makeup to try and reduce the contrast in colour between scars and the surrounding skin. It can also be used as semi-permanent makeup to define eyelid margins and lips or following breast reconstruction, it can be utilised to recreate areolas and colour reconstructed nipples. 2-dimensional realistic eyebrows can be tattooed and hair can be simulated in areas of beard, moustache or scalp hair loss. The degree of permanence of the tattoo will vary depending on the depth that the pigment is placed. In contrast to decorative tattoos, the pigment is often placed more superficially in the skin so that the tattoo is semi-permanent rather than permanent.
