What is scar camouflage?
Scar camouflage is a form of micropigmentation that can be performed to camouflage scars that are lacking color. Skin tones are matched as closely as possible to reduce the visibility of scars.
Who can benefit from scar camouflage?
Scar camouflage is for anybody who wants to reduce the appearance of light or white scars that are fully healed. It is recommended for areas that are not frequently exposed to sunlight, as skin will change color when exposed to UV rays, but the micropigments will not.
Please note that not all scars are suitable for scar camouflage. During the consultation, our Certified Micropigment Specialist will determine if the scarred area is suitable for this service.
Some commonly treated areas include, but are not limited to:
- Scarring from surgery including breast augmentation or reduction, mastectomy, c-sections, knee replacements, face lifts, etc.
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Hypopigmented skin such as vitiligo
How long do services take?
The service length will vary based on a multitude of factors, including location and size of the scar(s). The service length will be determined after your consultation, and may require multiple visits to achieve your desired outcome. The healing process will vary by individual, and may take up to 4 months.
