Scars on your body and face can leave you feeling imperfect, uncomfortable, and lacking confidence. Although Paramedical tattooing is a relatively new concept; it is an amazingly effective way to conceal scars, stretch marks, discolorations, or to create realistic anatomic impressions, such as fingernails or areolas. The colour and shape are always selected and designed to complement the client’s skin tone. Having scars camouflaged is a great way to feel less self conscious and more confident in the appearance of the scars. Scar camouflage and scar tattoo treatments are long-term solutions. We can also smooth and relax scars with irregular texture by using Micro-needling to generate micro-trauma to the skin. This stimulates the body’s wound-healing response, leaving your scar tissue less taut and more even.
It is recommended that all clients use sunscreen (minimum SPF 15) to protect their tattoos.
Pigments used in camouflage are stable and have been formulated to stay true to color.
So, the area that has been camouflaged may stay lighter in the sun than the rest of the skin that is getting a tan, as the pigment does not tan with the sun.
With that said, if the skin is suntanned the camouflage will still blend better than before the tattoo.
Once the skin is not tanned it will be perfectly blended again!
Clients should always come in at their most regular skin tone to ensure the perfect colour match.
