What is Skin Camouflage or Scar/Stretch Marks Camouflage Tattoo?

by Sol Cosmedics London’s Leading Micro-pigmentation Clinic

Skin or scar camouflage is tattooing of the skin with different colours of flesh tone pigments. Its purpose is to disguise a scar/stretch mark or skin area that is missing pigment or colour. It is a specialized area of permanent cosmetics that falls under the category of Medical or Paramedical Tattooing. This process is also called Corrective Pigment Camouflage (CPC), Corrective Camouflage, Skin Re-pigmentation, Scar Camouflage, Skin Camouflage, Camouflage Tattooing, and Skin Colour Tattooing. The science behind pigments and the physiology of human skin and tissue must be understood by the specialist performing these procedures. These procedures require advanced knowledge, training, skills, and experience in permanent cosmetics as well as an artistic eye for colour and skin tones.

 

Who can get it?

 

If you have a scar of any type (surgery, stretch marks, accident, congenital anomalies, or different types of skin diseases) or the stretch marks, the lighter coloured scars/stretch marks can be camouflaged long-term using advanced medical tattooing treatments during which skin-coloured pigments are infused into the scar tissue/stretch mark to minimize its appearance. For optimum results, scars/stretch marks should be at least one year old and should be paler in colour than the surrounding skin. Notably, if scars/stretch marks are hyper-pigmented (dark in colour); are noticeably raised or sunken or have an uneven texture the treatment may be ineffective as these scar types have poor pigment retention capabilities. Therefore, not all scar camouflage tattoo is suitable for treatment.

 

Perfect for:

 

·         Scars

·         Acne scars

·         Burn scars

·         Stretch marks

·         Hypo-pigmented skin (patches of skin that are abnormally lighter than the surrounding skin)

 

What is the procedure and healing time?

 

Although micro-needling and scar camouflage can reduce the appearance of your scar/stretch marks, it is important to understand that scars are long-lasting, and no scar will ever be completely invisible. Every scar/stretch mark is different: body location, size, shape, colour, the appearance of depth, and so on. Some scars/stretch marks require only a single sitting, others take multiple sittings. Results are cumulative and may take four to six weeks to fully develop.

How Much Does Scar Camouflage Cost?

 

Depending on where you go, prices vary quite a bit. Wake Up to Makeup charges $400+ for this service. The more detailed the work is, ultimately, the more expensive it becomes.
