Scar Removals Dubai and the Middle East

Scar Removals Dubai and the Middle East

Scar Removal Dubai is a very popular treatment in Dubai and the Middle East with lots of specialists offering a variety of solutions. 

What exactly is scar removal?

The name “scar removals” is somewhat misleading, there is no system that can physically remove scars. The more accurate term is “Scar Camouflage” or “Scar Repair”.

At Exclusive Aesthetic we offer two procedures that offer excellent results to reduce the appearance of a scar:

  • MCA and Dry Needling for scars
  • Scar Camouflage using Micropigmentation 

Both of these procedures achieve excellent results for scar removals to conceal any scar to look like the surrounding skin colour and tone.

Scar removal falls under our range of medical procedures. For a general overview of our medical procedures please see HERE.

MCA and Dry Needling for scars

MCA and Dry Needling for Scar Removals is one of our most popular and effective treatments for scars. 

The first thing we do when we see a scar removal patient is to ascertain what type of scar it is. Is it a scar from damage or surgery, or is it a scar from a condition like an acne scar? Scars from damage or surgery usually cause more trauma and damage to the skin resulting in the surface of the scar being either raised or indented (not flat). This is where MCA and Dry Needling is most effective.

MCA and dry needling is a dry needle technique using the same machine and needles we implant pigment without any pigment. The needle massages and activates the scar to flatten the scar’s surface as flat as possible. This is important as the appearance of a scar is usually more visible due to it being raised or indented.

There’s another key benefit of MCA and Dry Needling – whilst massaging the surface of the scar with the dry needle, the body’s natural collagen beneath the scar is reactivated in most cases, and this, in turn, helps to re-pigment the scar, i.e. a flush of the skins natural colour floods back into the scar or area of damage.

In most cases, our clients are happy with the result. If more pigment is required then we recommend a course of Scar Camouflage.

For more information on our MCA Dry Needling procedure please see HERE.

Scar Camouflage using Micropigmentation

Scar Camouflage uses the process of micropigmentation to add pigment to the surface of the scar to match the surrounding skin colour and tone.

We expertly assess a client’s skin tone and mix several bespoke pigments to implant these into the scar’s surface. The skin is made up of serval colours and not just one colour. The pigment is added as a series of small dots in a random pattern using various colours. This process ensures the scar’s surface looks as close to the surrounding skin colour as possible.

For more information on our scar camouflage procedure please see HERE.

Scar Removal Aftercare

Once our scar removal procedure is performed and the client is happy with the results, the area must be covered until fully healed.

Care must be taken when sunbathing with adequate sunblock applied because the area where the pigment is applied will not tan like normal skin. If the colour of the skin surrounding the scar is allowed to tan and therefore change colour, then the scar removal pigment will become more visible.

    Micropigmentation – advantages & benefits

    Micropigmentation – advantages and benefits

    What is Micropigmentation?

    Micropigmention is a form of cosmetic tattooing that fades and disappears after 2 -3 years. This is achieved by non-permanent pigments with a specific micron count being implanted at a specific depth into the skin. This is the main and crucial difference between permanent tattooing usually associated with body art and micropigmention.

    The most common form of Micropigmentation is Semi Permanent Makeup, followed by Medical Micropigmentation and Hair & Scalp Micropigmentation.

    Semi Permanent Makeup

    Semi permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing, uses micropigmentation to implant pigments to mimic makeup in the popular areas of the face. Treatments include eyebrows, eyeliner, lip liner, lip colour and lip blush. Eyebrows are enhanced and reshaped or repaired. Eyeliner is applied as either a very subtle lash line or varying thicknesses depending on the individual’s request. Lips can be redefined and given the illusion of a fuller look.

    Eyebrow procedures range from individual hair strokes for a very natural look to a dusting shadow powder effect. Whichever look is chosen the eyebrow can be transformed into a work of art, framing the face and giving you either a dramatic or natural and soft eyebrow. Eyeliner can be applied as just a very subtle eyelash enhancement or a dramatic smokey sultry eye! Lips can be defined with a simple natural outline or coloured to cover dark lips or give a lipstick effect. The more recent techniques such as Latino eyes and a glitter eyeshadow effect along with 3D lips or eyebrows are for the more advanced technician and can give you an amazing look that lasts!

    In all cases, the look and shape are drawn on using an eyebrow pencil before any pigments are applied. Pigment tone and colour are mixed and applied to the client’s requirements.

    Medical Micropigmentation

    Medical micropigmentation uses the same non-permanent pigments to conceal damage to or imperfections of the skin. The most popular treatments are Scar Removal & Concealment, Tattoo Removal, Vitiligo, Alopecia and Areola Reconstruction.

    Scar Removal

    For scar removal, a micropigmentation process called MCA and Dry Needling is performed on the scar to activate the body’s natural collagen beneath the skin. This flattens the scar and in most cases re pigments the scar to look like the surrounding undamaged skin.

    Skin Camouflage

    If repigmentation does not occur through MCA and Dry Needling then a procedure called Skin Camouflage is required. Skin Camouflage uses non-permanent pigments to match the skin tone to camouflage the area and look like the surrounding skin.

    The same Skin Camouflage technique can also be used for wherever there is pigment loss to the skin so is very beneficial to Vitiligo sufferers.

    Areola Tattooing

    Micropigmentation is used for Areola Tattooing post-surgery. People who have had a breast reduction and the nipple is removed or breast cancer sufferers and the nipple is required to be removed. Areola tattooing uses micropigmentation to implant pigments to create a fake areola. A very natural 3D look can be achieved by applying light and shadow tones.

    Tattoo Removal

    Tattoo removal uses the same micropigmentation machine and needles however the pigment is replaced with a specially formulated removals cream. This cream attaches itself to the pigment and is naturally expelled from the skin over a few weeks. As the cream is expelled the pigment is expelled with it.

    Hair & Scalp Micropigmentation

    Hair & scalp micropigmentation is becoming a very popular procedure to conceal baldness or redefine hairlines. The pigment is applied to the area of baldness to mimic short stubs of hair at skin level resulting in a look of more dense hair at the root level. This procedure is very effective for people with short hair.

    Who can benefit 

    With so many procedures available a wide number of people could benefit. Semi permanent makeup is very well suited to anyone who wishes to save time with their morning makeup routine or for people with sporty and active lifestyles. Medical micropigmentation provides exceptional results for scar removal, Alopecia and Vitiligo sufferers or who have had chemotherapy for cancer and lost their eyebrows and lashes. Whichever procedure you choose you should always do your own research and find the best specialists available. Knowledge and experience is an important factor so please choose wisely to avoid costly corrections or removals.
