Scar Camouflage

Using the Art of Tattooing to enhance and correct


The best kind of scars to camouflage are hypopigmented scars. This means the skin has lost pigment due to trauma. Melanocytes in the skin are damaged and no longer produce color, leaving your scar white.




Just like matching foundation, we will swatch your skin with different pigments to find the perfect color match. Depending on the size and texture of the scar, we typically use a magnum needle cartridge, which is a cartridge with multiple needles made for shading large areas of skin. The result is a soft pixelated color that blends perfectly with your natural skin tone. The process of tattooing causes thin needles to go in and out of the skin. This is an added benefit because it breaks up scar tissue and relaxes it. It also encourages new collagen to replace the damaged tissue, thereby smoothing the look of the scar.

After the procedure, pictures will be taken to document the transformation and aftercare ointment is provided along with after-care instructions.

A follow-up procedure is recommended 6-8 weeks after the initial appointment. Depending on the scar, the process may need to be repeated to get the best results. Some thicker scars require more sessions to achieve optimal camouflage.
