Every scar tells a story, a testament to our experiences and resilience. However, if your scars are a source of discomfort or self-consciousness, there's a transformative solution available: Scar Camouflage Micropigmentation.
Scar Camouflage Micropigmentation, often referred to as Scar Camouflage Tattooing, is a cutting-edge form of medical micropigmentation or medical tattooing. This technique offers a long-lasting solution for camouflaging various types of scars, be it from surgeries, burns, accidents, or past traumas.
So, how does the treatment work? Our seasoned practitioners use a digital machine equipped with fine needles. These needles meticulously deposit medical-grade pigments into the skin. Through specialised techniques, namely shallow and acrylic camouflage, we seamlessly blend scars with the surrounding skin.
To achieve the desired results often requires multiple sessions. This approach allows us to build up layers gradually, ensuring a natural appearance.
Before opting for scar camouflage, we typically recommend exploring microneedling. This procedure can naturally reduce the visibility of scars by inducing controlled trauma. The resultant production of collagen and elastin during the healing process can restore color to the scarred area. Additionally, microneedling serves as a conditioning treatment, effectively flattening raised scars

Is My Scarring Suitable For Scar Camouflage Treatment?
Not all scars are suitable for camouflage treatments. Like all procedures, there are specific contraindications and factors to consider:
Scars That Aren't Fully Healed: Scars should typically be over a year old before treatment to ensure the body has completed its natural healing process.
Keloid Scars & True Hypertrophic Scars: While keloid scars cannot be treated, some hypertrophic scars can be, provided they aren't overly red or raised.
Dark or Hyperpigmented Scars: Camouflaging a scar significantly darker than the surrounding skin can pose challenges.
Certain Medical Conditions: Individuals with conditions affecting skin healing, such as hemophilia, certain autoimmune diseases, or those on specific medications like blood thinners, may not be ideal candidates. Additionally, we cannot treat those who are pregnant or breastfeeding or under the age of 18.
Scars with Uneven Texture and/or Sunken Appearance: If a scar has a markedly different texture from the surrounding skin or is sunken, scar camouflage micropigmentation might not yield a natural look. For many scars, microneedling can be an effective pre-treatment to flatten and condition the scar before undergoing camouflage micropigmentation.
If you're uncertain about the suitability of your scar or skin condition for treatment, we invite you to schedule a complimentary, no-obligation consultation with our scar specialists. They will assess your situation and provide guidance.
