A complete guide to scar camouflage and how it can help to disguise the appearance of scar tissue.
This can involve anything from buying high-end beauty products to paying attention to their diet and fitness regime.
In an attempt to achieve the flawless look in both our face and body, unsightly scars, which may have arisen as a result of an accident or surgery, can act to lower our confidence in our appearance.
This is where a scar camouflage procedure can help us to come close to restoring the look of soft, supple skin, using micro-pigmentation to recreate natural skin tone and colour pigmentation.
What are the benefits of a scar camouflage procedure?
There are a number of benefits to having a scar camouflage procedure, including diminishing the appearance of your scars, without the need to apply heavy camouflage make-up on a daily basis.
Throughout our lives the appearance of our skin may have been damaged by scarring as a result of acne, stretch marks after childbirth or even burns. A scar camouflage procedure can help to conceal unwanted scarring, helping us to feel better about our skin’s appearance.
This is particularly important when the weather is hot, as a wardrobe full of short summer dresses and sleeveless tops will mean that we have more skin on show.
Scar camouflage: What can I expect from the procedure?
A scar camouflage procedure can generally be carried out a year after a scar has healed and our expert therapist Caron will explain how micro-pigmentation can be used and help to blend your scar with your surrounding skin as part of your free, no-obligation consultation.

After the scar camouflage procedure is completed Antiseptic soothing cream will be applied to the treated area, and you will receive a sachet of Vaseline and an aftercare sheet, with full details of how to care for the treated area.
