Physician/Staff Areola Training
We offer a training course for areola/3D nipple re-pigmentation. This is a 2 day workshop and will require live model/patient participation on day 2. The fees include workbooks, practice materials, equipment and pigments – everything needed to both practice and perform the areola tattooing. Your staff will be able to provide this service immediately following the course with a reasonable level of competency. Ongoing support is provided as needed. Courses are available weekends or weekdays.
Medical assistants, nurses, PA’s or nurse practitioners all make excellent candidates for this course. A working understanding of anatomy, physiology, skin and medical conditions are all prerequisites for this course. The course can be conducted at your location or our clinic. No more than 2 students per course.
AREOLA RESTORATION TRAINING WORKSHOP
Your areola workshop will include theory and study, practice materials and live model procedures.
The first day will be spent learning. See video demonstrations to hear first hand from patients who have experienced their own transformations. You will get to let your inner-artist come out and get creative with color and design.
Learn to create the illusion of a natural looking areola/nipple that will restore your patient’s confidence, and allow them to move forward feeling fully restored.
