Skin Camouflage Tattooing involves tattooing skin tone coloured medical pigments into your skin in order to match your natural skin tone.
Your skin is made up of several different tones, so I use 2-4 different bespoke colours during your treatment, helping to blend the pigments to match your natural skin tone.
Are you considering this treatment to cover scars from surgery or injury? If so then you may need to have a course of Micro Needling first, which will help to improve the condition of your skin, to ensure a better long term result. We will discuss your treatment options at your Consultation, once I have assessed the area you would like to have treated.
Whilst Skin Camouflage Tattooing is very effective at disguising scarring and areas of discolouration, it is always a ‘last resort’ treatment. This is a long term (life long) commitment for you, so we need to make sure that it’s the right treatment for you and that you understand the commitment you will need to make in the long term.
I believe in being very honest about what my treatments can and can’t offer, so at your Consultation, we will discuss the pro’s and con’s of Skin Camouflage Tattooing. Whilst there are many benefits to this treatment, you also need to be aware that you will need to have annual colour boosts after your initial course of treatment. It is also very important to understand that if the area you would like treated is exposed to the sun a lot, then the pigment colour will fade out. Whilst the pigment is fading out, your natural skin tone is likely to be deepening (tanning), which will affect the colour matching of your pigments.
I will go through all of this very thoroughly with you, so you can decide whether this treatment is right for you. In the first instance, I will often recommend Micro Needling for scars as this treatment kick starts your skins melanin production, helping to bring back your natural skin tone naturally.
