Options for all types of scars
Scar Reduction Techniques.
Scar Camouflage and scar reduction techniques have improved dramatically within the last decade. We now have a range of options available to us that allow us to treat your scars whether they are hypertrophic, atrophic, keloid, hyperpigmented, hypopigmented , acne scars or self-harm.
We have been able to improve the colour, texture and overall appearance of scars on all skin types and colours.
Scar camouflage makeup
Living with scars can be extremely difficult and have an impact on your every day life and confidence. We use multiple techniques to soften the texture of scars and camouflage them using permanent make up.
If your scars are lighter than the skin, we can use a semi permanent pigment to reduce the look of the scar on the face or body. We custom blend a pigment which matches your skin tone identically, we use a range of needles to implant this pigment into the skin creating a ‘permanent’ camouflage. Results last around 2 1/2 years before you will need a refresh.
This particular collagen boosting facial takes 20 minutes and as a result can offer the perfect pick me up before any special event.
Scar tissue treatment
These techniques are extremely effective and we have seen remarkable results even after the first session. As you know, scar tissue is unpredictable and we would work with you to on a treatment plan to ensure the best results possible through Collagen Induction Therapy (Micro-needling/scar softening) and custom blended permanent camouflage.
We have found the combination of Growth Factor Induction Therapy with dermal stamp to be extremely effective in both softening raised scars and lifting depressed scars (usually acne scars). If the scars are particularly fibrous or lumpy we may often improve the skin using growth factors before starting the scar camouflage treatments.
What happens during the treatment?
We will test a small area of the scar with a custom blend of colours and allow this to heal for 30 days so that we can assess the final results and ensure that the colour match is accurate and that the results are in line with your expectations.
We will make any adjustments necessary and then treat the remainder of the scar blending the tissue with the surrounding skin.
Procedure times will vary depending on the size of the area to be treated, there should be minimum discomfort, clients describe this as a 2 out of 10.
Scars that we can treat include:
- Post-surgical scars
- Face Lift procedures
- Scalps (trauma or Hair Transplants)
- Caesarean scars
- Stretch Marks
- Acne scars
- Contracture scars – burns
- Self Harm
- Mastectomy scars
- Vitiligo (if stabilised)
“The camouflage treatment was for scar tissue on the lower lip, I was very pleased with the initial result of the treatment. I was guided with instructions of what to expect during and following the treatment. The treatment met my expectations and several days after the procedure it is clear the guidance that I received post treatment was accurate, specifically taking into account the colour tone and appearance of the scar.
I would rate this clinic very highly especially to anyone who would like to be treated for similar procedures. The clinic condition was good and I would recommend this clinic to anyone looking for skin scar treatment.“
Does it hurt ?
It is completely normal to feel anxious about the procedures. We use a range of topical anaesthetics to ensure that you are as relaxed as possible during the treatment and that any discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum. Most clients describe the sensation as ‘tingling vibrations’ rather than pain and many fall asleep during the procedure.
