Scar Removals

30+ years experience

Scar Removals by the experts – We safely and effectively remove any scar

Our Scar Removals procedure uses two methods, MCA and Dry Needling, to flatten the scar and Scar Camouflage to add pigment to the scar’s surface.

In most cases, MCA and Dry Needling naturally re-pigments the scar to look like the surrounding skin. If there is still pigment loss after MCA and Dry Needling, then several Scar Camouflage treatment sessions are recommended to add additional pigment to the surface of the scar.

The aim of both scar removal procedures is to blend the scar to the surrounding skin tone and look.

    The Process of Scar Removal

    Raised or indented scars

    MCA and Dry Needling for raised or indented scars

    MCA and Dry Needling is the go-to solution to improve scars due to accidents, operations or where there is mild to severe skin damage from burns etc.

    Most scars of this nature have caused significant damage to the skin and are as a result raised or indented.

    For raised or indented scars (not flat) we start with a course of MCA and Dry Needling. MCA and Dry Needling uses a needle (without pigment) to stimulate the collagen beneath the scar allowing the scar to relax and flatten. In most cases, this process re-pigments the scar naturally.

    If the scar is still visible after a course of MCA and Dry Needling then a course of Scar Camouflage is required.

    For minor flat scars

    Scar Camouflage for flat scars

    To treat minor scars that are usually flat and smooth, we perform a course of Scar Camouflage (with no MCA and Dry Needling). The pigmentation of a scar is only effective when the scar is as flat as possible, the same as usual undamaged skin.

    For Scar Camouflage, we mix bespoke pigment colours and tones to match to the surrounding skin and apply to the surface of the scar. This blends the scar colour to match the surrounding skin tone.

    To effectively add pigment to any scar, the scar must be flat like undamaged skin. If a scar is raised or indented, we will always start with a course of MCA and Dry Needling.

    Achieving the correct skin colour

    Skin Patch Test (SPT)

    Scar Camouflage requires a Skin Patch Test to test what pigment colours and tones match your skin tone and how well they implant to your skin. A skin patch test is usually performed at the first appointment so please book a 30-minute appointment.

    MCA and Dry Needling does not require a Skin Patch Test (SPT) because we do not insert pigment, the needle is dry. We can perform MCA on your first visit. Treatment appointments are usually 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the scar.

    Aftercare – What to do post-treatment

    Our scar removals process uses needles which will cause slight irritation and swelling to the treatment area. In some cases, there may also be redness; however, this will subside very quickly.

    For 72 hours after scar removals treatment session, we advise no contact with water or sweat to allow the skin to heal.

    You will be given aftercare instructions at your treatment appointment. Please follow aftercare instructions carefully to ensure the best results.

    What our clients say

    I had a few childhood scars on my arm and contacted Candice to see what was possible. My scars were relatively small, and as the surface was flat, Candice performed three sessions of Scar Camouflage. Now I can hardly see them. Thank you, Candice!




    I had a scar from an operation that was on my knee. Candice performed MCA to flatten the scar, and the results are excellent. I was amazed by how a simple process was effective at blending my scar to look like natural skin.




    I had a childhood scar removed, and now it looks like it was never there!




    I had several Scar Removal sessions, and I very happy with the results. I wasn’t pleased with the scars on my forearms and Candice performed a course of MCA which naturally pigmented my scars.
