Tattoo removal / Tattooing
The ultramodern equipment of the Butterfly centre allows tattoos deeper in the skin to be removed, and the sensations are less painful than with other laser techniques, as a jet of cold air is projected during the tattoo removal session. The sessions are short and less difficult for patients. Our state-of-the-art techniques give excellent results without long-term scarring and work on all skin types and colours.
Sometimes when the concentration of pigment is high, small scabs can form, and more rarely a small “bump” or blister, which is a normal phenomenon in the tattoo removal process.
This is still a medical procedure; this is why we apply a disinfectant healing cream covered by a waterproof dressing that you keep on for 48 hours. The dressing can be changed at home under hygienic conditions, and healing will take from 5 to 10 days.

The Butterfly centre performs relief tattooing of the mammary areola to conceal the scars from breast surgery.
This is a tattoo that repairs the vestiges of a hard fight against the disease. Although it is not curative in itself, it is an important act in the journey toward psychological healing. This tattooing is part of the long and complex process of breast reconstruction that can take time and that is done progressively after a mastectomy or removal of a breast.
This tattoo creates the appearance of the areolar relief and so gives the illusion of virtually identical resemblance to the remaining breast.
An average of 3 to 6 sessions should be considered. Our teams will provide you with the best advice on your tattoo removal sessions. With patience and time, it is possible to remove your tattoo completely.
The number of sessions will depend on several factors such as the age of the tattoo; the older it is, the faster it will disappear and the fewer sessions will be needed. You must wait several weeks to several months before removing a tattoo you regret.
In areas with hair it can conceal scars with the appearance of hair.
Our experts recommend medical dermography in some cases to help patients feel better:
- Dermography or dermopigmentation of the areola and nipple after breast cancer.
- Dermography of mammoplasty scars.
- Dermography of scars on the body after an accident, surgery, burns, or graft harvesting for burns.
- Dermography of areas with hair: the scalp (scars or limited hair loss), the eyebrows after chemotherapy.
- Dermography of cleft palate scars.
- Dermography of scars in eyebrows or injuries to the eyelids, dermography of some contrasting areas of vitiligo (mammary areolae, lips).
