Add pigment to scars

Our Scar Camouflage procedure uses the process of micropigmentation to implant skin coloured pigments into the surface of the scar so the scar looks the same as the surrounding skin. Scar Camouflage is very effective with any scar type including burns, medical scars and accident scars.Scars are often raised or indented. In order for our scar camouflage procedure to be successful, it is vital the scar is as flat as possible*. To achieve this we recommend a treatment course of MCA and Dry Needling prior to any pigment being 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.The best Scar Camouflage results are achieved when the scar is lighter than the surrounding skin. On occasions, Scar Camouflage can also be used for 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

Our aim is to match the scar to the natural skin colour as perfectly as possible.
Scar Camouflage patients should be aware that the best results are achieved 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 session every 12 to 18 months to keep the pigment looking fresh. Pigments can never match a changing skin tone. Post-treatment minimal sun exposure to the area is recommended especially if the area is in an obvious 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 plays an important role in determining the pigment colours to use to match your skin colour and tone. Skin patch tests are usually performed at the initial consultation. At least 4 to 6 weeks is required to see the results. Then the course of treatments sessions can start. For skin patch test cost see HERE.
Pigments and colour mixing
For scar camouflage and skin camouflage procedures, we mix bespoke pigment colours tailored to each clients skin tone and colour. 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 near 30 years experience mixing colours to match skin tones.
Aftercare

Aftercare for this treatment plays a big part in its success. Avoiding sun and any chlorinated water for at least 4 weeks is important. Also, any heat or steam treatments must be avoided for the first 5 days after each treatment session. Prolonged protection of the skin to sunlight should also be adhered to.

Cost
As a general guide scar camouflage will consist of between 1 and 3 sessions however on larger 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 required. Small, flat scars can be treated straight away with pigment and take the shortest time to complete.

Testimonials

I had a small scar on my hand I wasn’t happy with so contacted Candice for Scar Camouflage. Candice performed a skin patch test to test the pigments matched my skin colour. Once the clours were correct Candice used them to blend my scar to the surrounding skin. I’m very happy with the result.

Gemma - Dubai

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