FAQs, PRE-CARE, & POST-CARE
How does scar camouflage treatment work?
Our scar camouflage treatment employs a tattooing technique that deposits colored pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis. Using tattoo pigments, our technicians can recolor scars to more closely match your natural skin tone.
For every procedure, we take the time to make you as comfortable as possible. We will apply a numbing cream before and during the treatment. We use pigments that are FDA-approved and made specifically for procedures performed on potentially sensitive areas. At Pretty Faces Ink, our goal is to give you the best and safest results possible.
We can also camouflage scars in areas where hair grows, such as the eyebrows, by mimicking the natural fall of hair. This also works for scars on the scalp after an accident or hair transplant procedure.
Am I a candidate for scar camouflage treatment?
We understand that every individual is different. We will meet with you for an in-depth discussion of your unique needs, objectives, and desires, as well as what to expect, prior to performing any procedure. Our scar camouflage treatment is safe and non-invasive, with little to no downtime.
Clients should be aware that treatments are most effective in areas not exposed to sunlight on a regular basis. The skin surrounding the treated area will change color from UV exposure, but the tattooed skin will not change with it. Therefore, we strongly recommend scar camouflage treatments for areas that aren’t exposed to sunlight, such as the breasts after augmentations, reductions, and mastectomies.
