Our technicians have received master level training in this procedure and have the results to prove it.

Breast Scar CamouflageWhat Exactly Can Breast Scar Camouflage Do for Me?

With this procedure, we can restore color, symmetry, and a feeling of wholeness to your breasts. For those who have lost pigmentation or symmetry in their nipples or areolas, we can create the illusion of a raised nipple and soften the edges of the areola. And with custom pigmentation, we can match any skin tone.

Our unique breast scar camouflage techniques can also improve the overall texture and suppleness of your breasts.

How Long After My Surgery Can I Get Breast Scar Camouflage?

Breast scar camouflage can be done shortly after your surgery and refined at any stage during the restoration process. This comes as a relief to many of our patients as they are eager to restore what they have lost.

How Long Does Breast Scar Camouflage Last?

While retention times vary from patient to patient, breast scar camouflage typically last up to 2-3 years. After that, many patients may elect to have a color booster treatment. This is a quick and simple procedure that will restore the fading color and definition.

There’s nothing we enjoy more than helping women get back their confidence and restore their femininity. Everyone at the Nouveau Clinic understands the emotional distress these kinds of scars can have, and we’re proud to say that we’re here to help.

Your initial appointment is a 30-minute personalized and confidential breast consultation to determine what type of breast re-pigmentation services or scar therapies are best for you. This consultation will give us the opportunity to answer your specific questions about the services while providing you with an estimate and a customized treatment plan.

Our procedural appointments will be scheduled when you are ready to begin your scar treatment process. You should allow ninety minutes for each treatment session.

Cosmetic camouflage is applied by placing “micro-insertions” of cosmetic-grade pigment, underneath the surface of the skin to replace or enhance lost color. We will select a pigment that is complimentary to your complexion, or you may select a tone that most closely resembles your natural skin or areola coloring. Your nipples, areola or scars will be darker and more vivid in color immediately following each session, due to the pigment application process. The skin will exfoliate lightly within the first week of treatment and the color will lighten substantially. Details of recommended post care products and post care instructions will be discussed with you during your consultation.

  • The actual procedures themselves are painless for the majority of our clients. While every person has a different threshold for discomfort, our topical anesthetics are so effective, most clients remain numb for up to an hour after their treatment session.
  • There is no “down-time” with re-pigmentation or scar therapy procedures, and you will be able to bathe immediately and return to work and general activities the next day.
  • We do not recommend working out for one week after a re-pigmentation procedure to allow the skin sufficient time to heal without irritation from body perspiration.
  • We do not recommend swimming, sunbathing or spray-tanning for two weeks after any breast procedure.
  • Re-pigmentation of the nipples and areola require two sessions which are included in the price of your initial service. Additional sessions may be required if there is significant scarring involved from surgery.
  • Breast scar therapy work is a unique service customized to the individual needs of our clients.
  • An estimate on the number of treatments required to accomplish scar refinements are discussed with you at the time of your consultation.
  • Cosmetic camouflage will last on average between 2 to 3 years for most women before fading. You will need to boost the color and artistry periodically to maintain the enhancement.
  • Cosmetic camouflage is susceptible to fading from UV exposure. We recommend that you wear sunscreen under your clothing when sunbathing or using tanning beds to prevent premature fading of your pigment.
