    Effective and natural results

    We add pigment to conceal

    Our Scar Camouflage procedure uses the process of micropigmentation to implant skin-coloured pigments into the scar’s surface to blend it to the surrounding skin colour and tone. Scar Camouflage is very effective at concealing any scar type including burns, medical scars and accident scars.

    Scars are often raised or indented. For our scar camouflage procedure to be successful, the scar must be as flat as possible*. To achieve this, we recommend a treatment course of MCA and Dry Needling before any pigment is applied. MCA and Dry Needling technique use a needle without pigment to stimulate the collagen beneath the scar allowing the scar to relax and flatten.

    We achieve the best Scar Camouflage results when the scar is lighter than the surrounding skin. We can occasionally treat scars that are darker than the surrounding skin colour; however, this must be done with great caution and several patch tests to ensure the colour does not turn darker.

    *Undulation along the surface of the scar could cause variants in the amount of pigment entering the skin resulting in varying colours in the scar camouflage. To flatten the scar, we recommend a course of MCA and Dry Needling.

    The process

    We aim to match the scar to the natural skin colour as perfectly as possible. Scar Camouflage patients should be aware that we obtain the best results when the skin is as natural in colour as possible, i.e. with no suntan or very little suntan. Tanned skin can affect the prescriptive skin tone pigments and changes colour depending on exposure to the sun.

    Scar camouflage pigments do not change colour; they fade over time as they are expelled from the skin over 2 to 3 years; therefore, we recommend a refresher treatment every 12 to 18 months to keep the pigment looking fresh. Please note, pigments can never match a changing skin tone. We strongly recommend minimal sun exposure to the area the treatment especially, if the treated area is in a visible position.

    Ideal conditions prior to treatment

    For the best Scar Camouflage results the treated area should be area:

    • A minimum of 12 months old
    • Not noticeably raised or indented
    • Of smooth texture
    • Lighter than the surrounding skin

    Skin Patch Test (SPT)

    A Skin Patch Test (SPT) is required before we perform most medical micropigmentation treatments. An SPT is essential to show the correct colour application to match the surrounding skin.

    A Skin Patch Test plays a vital role in determining the pigment colours to use to match your skin colour and tone. We usually perform a skin patch test at the initial consultation. We require at least 4 to 6 weeks to see the results. Then the course of treatments sessions can start.

    Pigments and colour mixing

    For scar camouflage and skin camouflage procedures, we mix bespoke pigment colours tailored to each clients skin tone and skin complexion. The skin is not one colour; therefore, we mix several colours and apply a series of dots to mimic the natural look of the skin. We adopt the latest scar and skin camouflage techniques and have over 30 years of experience mixing colours to match skin tones.


    Aftercare plays a big part in the success of this treatment. Avoiding the sun and any chlorinated water for at least four weeks is essential. Also, we recommend avoiding any heat or steam treatments must be avoided for the first five days after each treatment session. Please consider extended protection of the skin to sunlight after this treatment.


    As a general guide, scar camouflage will consist of between 1 and 3 sessions; however, on more extensive scars, this will increase. The number of treatment sessions required is also dependent on the extent and type of scar tissue damage. Often a course of MCA and Dry Needling is needed. Small, flat scars can be treated straight away with pigment and take the shortest time to complete.

    We only use the best micropigmentation machines, needles and pigments to ensure the best industry-leading results.

    What our clients say

    I had a small scar on my hand that I wasn’t happy with so contacted Candice for Scar Camouflage. Candice performed a skin patch test, and once the colours were correct, Candice used them to blend my scar to the surrounding skin. I’m delighted with the result.




    I have a childhood accident scar on my leg. Candice used MCA to flatten the scar and then applied pigment to match it to the surrounding skin. The results are outstanding, and I struggle even to see the injury now.
