Cancer or cancer treatment can cause Lymphedema
* Sometimes a cancerous tumor can get big enough to block the lymph system.
* Surgery to remove cancer may also remove lymph nodes or some of the vessels that carry the lymph   
   fluid. This can cause the fluid to build up in surrounding tissues.
* Radiation treatment can damage the lymph vessels, resulting in too much lymph fluid in the tissues.

       Jenean LaCorte Restorative Tattoos 3D Nipple and Scar Tattoo

Jenean LaCorte became interested in medical tattoo when she learned of the need from her sister-in-law, who had undergone a bilateral mastectomy due to her breast cancer diagnosis. Jenean, herself is a cancer survivor of over 40 years, and understands the needs of survivors wanting to camouflage their scars, some wanting to find a substitute for what was taken away, as is the case with the 3D nipple tattoos. 

For her pursuit of this interest, she studied and earned her certification through the Sauler Institute, a division of Penn Medicine. She is also certified in HIPPA rules and regulations and blood born pathogens.

It is her great passion to help as many people as she can through her artistic approach to medical tattooing.

Restorative Tattoos is located in Hampstead, NC 28443. To learn more click the link below, call at  910-232-1117 or email her at 

                             Integrative D​ry Needling

We offer Dry Needling treatment at our facility! 

Dry Needling can be performed by THREE of our very own Physical Therapist's who is Certified in Dry Needling! 

Integrative Dry Needling is a highly effective form of Physical Therapy for the treatment of a multitude of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions. It is not appropriate for all conditions or pathologies and the use of the technique will be at the discretion of your physical therapist. 

Ask your therapist if this is right for you! We hope to hear from you soon!

Integrative Dry Needling involves placing a small needle into the tissue that is tender with the intent to normalize the physiology of the area and regain homeostasis,which will improve the function of the musculoskeletal system resulting in symptom reduction.

What Beautycounter has taught us....
*There are about 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products - only 10% of those chemicals have safety data.

*The United States has not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.

*The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting more than 1,300 ingredients - the U.S has only banned 11 to date.
