STEP - 1

Scar Reduction - Pre camouflage

Inkless method is done with tattoo needles, this step is focused on softening scar tissue, smoothing out the texture of the scar, often called scar relaxation technique or CIT, collagen induction therapy. Doing this step will prepare the scar to have a better  color retention for scar camouflage sessions. Different types of needles are used depending on the scar tissue, just enough to cause a controlled damage to the scarred area.  This minor trauma stimulates the blood flow to the area, and triggers the body’s natural healing process. The dry needling technique causes micro punctures, which creates channels that trigger the body to restore collagen, melanin and elastin, therefore promoting further restructuring of damaged skin to a healthier skin tissue.

Raised scars will flatten out, become smoother and tight scars will loosen up, releasing tension on the skin around it. Discolored scars start to normalize and skin tone/color evens out. Numbness on the scar tissue may improve, and start bringing the sensations back. 


Incorporating a proper after care provided by different stages of wound healing, can maximize the result of the treatment, and lightens the hyperpigmented scars as well. FADE MILK, our signature skin whitening cream made specifically for dark scars does the wondrous job in this stage as shown in many improved results.

Scar Camouflage

Once a scar is light and flatter, matching skin tone will be created by state of art color matching skill, and tattooed into the area that’s missing pigments.


  • Consultation: We will take time to discuss your need and concern, assess your scar,  and a treatment plan will be proposed to meet your needs. We will make sure you are completely comfortable with the proposed treatment before proceeding.

  • Color matching: We will prepare a number of custom-blended pigments specifically for your skin tone. 

  • Tattooing: Before beginning the treatment, we will apply local anesthetic cream to make the procedure as comfortable as possible, as needed. 

  • Healing: We will apply a healing ointment to protect the irritated skin and, if necessary, a light dressing. Healing time varies by skin, but in most cases, minor irritation will subside by next day, and the top layers of skin will have healed around 7 days post-treatment. Your skin will continue to heal up to 6 weeks or so. 

  • Aftercare will be provided with detailed instruction.

What is Scar Camouflage tattooing, and How does it Work?


Scar Camouflage Tattooing, a novel technique used in the world of skin camouflage design, promises a revolutionary solution for those seeking to conceal the presence of scars on their skin. This groundbreaking technique hinges on the application of scar camouflage makeup, which is permanently tattooed onto the skin to blend with your natural skin tone. The objective is simple; to make scars less noticeable to the untrained eye.


Scar Camouflage Tattooing involves implanting pigment into the skin. However, instead of creating visible designs, skin camouflage techniques are used to mimic the natural appearance of your skin. This technique takes an artistic approach, with an expert tattooist meticulously matching the color of your skin to create a seamless blend. This sophisticated process can take multiple sessions, but the results are undoubtedly worth the time and effort.


How Scar Camouflage Tattooing Can Transform Your Appearance & Self Esteem 


The Micropigmentation procedure involved in Scar Camouflage Tattooing goes beyond skin-deep. The results offer not only a transformative change in appearance but also a significant boost to one's self-esteem. 


Skin camouflage is an intricate procedure that requires the expertise of a proficient artist. The micropigmentation procedure, similar to traditional tattooing, requires the artist to insert tiny particles of pigment into the uppermost layer of the skin, creating a long-lasting cover-up.


The Benefits of Scar Camouflage Tattoos 


The application of scar cover up tattoos offers far-reaching benefits that extend beyond aesthetics. Primarily, these tattoos help individuals reclaim their confidence by providing a long lasting solution to scar visibility.


The use of microneedling for scars is an effective technique incorporated into this process. Microneedling stimulates the skin's natural healing abilities, encouraging collagen production and skin regeneration. This aids in improving the texture and appearance of the scarred area, further enhancing the effectiveness of the scar camouflage tattoos.


Lastly, the psychological benefits of scar camouflage tattoos cannot be understated. For many, scars can be a constant reminder of a traumatic event or an aspect of their appearance they wish to change. Scar camouflage tattoos can help lessen this psychological burden, offering individuals a renewed sense of self-confidence and freedom from past traumas. The outcome is more than skin-deep; it's about regaining control and embracing one's skin with renewed self-assurance.
