Scarring is a natural part of the body’s healing process after an injury. When the deeper layers of the skin are damaged (the dermis) – a scar will be produced as part of the wound-healing cascade. The body repairs the wound by increasing production of collagen at the wound site. The fibrous tissue that forms over the wound also protects it from further injury.
Scars produce a structural change in the skin – both in the skin’s features, color and architecture. Superficial wounding of the skin in the surface layer (the epidermis), will not produce a scar. When a wound has healed, the resulting tissue covering the wound is a scar. The scar will continue to change in texture and appearance as new collagen is formed, and the blood supply returns to a more normal state. This can take from one to two years. Scars will fade and improve gradually following an injury to the skin, however, there will always be some visible evidence of the trauma, and hair follicles will not grow back.
The scar that you see on the surface of the skin is the result of a complex process the skin goes through as it recovers from damage. There are many factors that affect how a wound heals, and the way the wound heals affects how the scar will end up looking in the long run. How skin heals and scars varies from person to person, but it also depends on how you care for the wound before the scar is done forming.
The skin goes through three stages of repair before you see a scar. In the first stage, there’s swelling, redness, and some tenderness or pain as a scab begins to form. During the next stage, new skin tissue forms underneath the scab. The final stage involves rebuilding and reforming the outer and inner layers of skin
Scar fading uses proven, non-surgical treatment options for individuals who desire to reduce the appearance of scars or undesirable pigmentation, resulting from surgery, accidents, injury, minor burns or illness. We use a wide variety of techniques that are holistic in approach, but based in real science. Scar fading treatments provide a gentle correction of existing scar tissue or undesirable pigmentation. These techniques effectively “re-model” the skins appearance, making the scar or blemish less visible over time. Treatment protocols combine customized clinical treatments, home care and nutritional support options for optimum wound healing and cosmetic improvement.
Permanent Scar and Skin Camouflage is a medical tattoo process that camouflages skin irregularities or loss of pigment, by implanting flesh tone pigments into those areas. These pigments are tattooed into the scar or blemish by implanting washes of color – or hundreds of micro-sized dots (mimicking the pixels in digital photography). The layering of these tiny dots or washes of color, can help to blend the scar into the healthy surrounding skin.It is not possible to completely “erase a scar”; however a permanent camouflage process can hide the scar so effectively, it is no longer obvious to the naked eye. Permanent Scar Camouflage is also referred to as:
Depending on your genetic makeup and the depth and type of tear in your skin, scarring can range from a slightly reddish discoloration to a thick, raised red or dark scar. There are three main “categories” of scars, generally described as (flat, indented, or raised).
These skin conditions will require care from a Dermatologist, Surgeon or Laser Technician.
A Keloid Scar forms with an abnormal healing response to injury or trauma. They are similar in appearance to hypertrophic scars, but unlike hypertrophic scars, a keloid can grow beyond the original site of injury and once formed becomes permanent. A keloid has a hard, smooth surface and an irregular shape that can range from a small lumpy growth to a large disfiguring scar. It can be pinkish red to purple, or nearly
black in color.

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.

You must have some hair remaining or transplanted in the bald areas to blend the illusion for best results. Scalp micro-pigmentation works best as a cosmetic solution for camouflaging hair loss if you are willing to shave your head for a close cropped or buzzed style in these circumstances. With the head shaved, we can then effectively camouflage your crown hair loss by using follicle simulation to blend with the new shaved hair style. Contact us for more details.
