STRETCH MARKS & SCAR TATTOO
Permanent Makeup Scar Camouflage Tattoo
Skin or scar camouflage is tattooing of the skin with different colors of flesh tone pigments.
Paramedical scar camouflage purpose is to disguise a scar or skin area that is missing pigment or color.
Our paramedical makeup artist would take pigment and blend to match the surrounding skin skin tone to fill in the area where the scar was located. An example would be a burns scar.
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 Color 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 color and skin tones. (Note* Multiple sessions are required)
Covering your scar with a flesh-colored tattoo can come by many names, including corrective pigment camouflage, and skin color tattooing just to name a few, but the most common term is scar camouflage.
The procedure is actually considered a type of non-surgical medical procedure where a needle is inserted into the scar and deposits inks that mimic the pigment of your skin.
Since skin isn’t just one solid color, the technician uses a pointillism technique to mix and match skin tones to add variety to the skin, masking the scar.
Corrective pigmentation can be used on a variety of patients, including those with scars and burns, as well as on patients with skin pigmentation disorders and stretch marks.
Sadly, not all scarring can benefit from the treatments, and you need to know this before you decide to get this procedure done, to avoid mishaps and even more scarring.
