Scar Camouflage FAQ

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
  • Burns
  • 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.

Is it safe?

Yes. Our Certified Micropigment Specialists are fully trained, highly skilled, and licensed to provide micropigmentation services. Further, all of our staff places the utmost importance on safe and hygienic practices. Your service provider will explain the inherent risks of the procedure, and make sure you aren’t experiencing any conditions that render you unable to receive services. Please review the post-procedure care, which can be found below.

Post-Procedure Care

Micropigmentation procedures are affected by the “canvas” (your skin) on which they are performed. Lifestyle, medications, smoking, metabolism, surgery, and age of skin all contribute to fading.

Though rare, infection is possible. If you see signs of infection such as persistent increased redness or swelling, fever, drainage, or oozing, contact your doctor immediately.

  • Apply ice packs as necessary to prevent or reduce swelling.
  • An invisible liquid bandage will be applied over the area at the completion of your procedure. This liquid bandage will wear off after approximately 48 hours.
  • Beginning 48 hours after your procedure, apply a very thin coat of the provided ointment to the area twice a day for 3-4 days (or until all scabbing/crust has come off) after cleansing with simple soap or baby shampoo.
  • When the area starts to flake, leave it. Do not pick, peel or pull on the skin.
  • Avoid sweating such as from vigorous exercise for 24 hours.
  • Avoid Retin-A, moisturizers, glycolic acids, exfoliants and anti-aging products at all times (not just during healing) on all micropigmented areas. These can cause pigments to fade and lighten prematurely.
  • Avoid tanning beds, sun, chlorine spas and pools, soap and chemicals (including skin cleansers, makeup removers, and alpha hydroxyl creams) near the treated area until healed.
  • Pigments will slowly fade over time according to one’s metabolism, skin type, sun exposure, medication, facial surgery, and smoking. Schedule maintenance visits as needed to keep it looking fresh.
  • Periodic touch ups will ensure longer lasting results.

For at least one week post-procedure or until healing is complete (whichever is longer):

  • Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the affected area(s).
  • Do not scrub or pick treated areas.
  • Do not use peroxide or Neosporin® on treated areas.
  • Do not expose area to direct sun or to tanning beds.
  • Avoid exposing the area excessive moisture or humidity, such as: facials, swimming, whirlpools (hot tubs), saunas, steam rooms, and steamy showers.


  • Every person is different and some heal more quickly or slowly than others.
  • Temporary side effects from micropigmentation include but are not limited to: redness, swelling, puffiness, bruising, dry patches and tenderness.
  • You should expect to lose approximately 1/3 of the initial color during the healing process. We select the optimal pigments for you with this in mind. In approximately six days it may appear too light. After about 10 days, the color will show more, and it will appear softer when completely healed.
  • Failure to follow the post-procedure instructions above may result in a loss or discoloration of pigment resulting in a need for more frequent touchups.
