Skin color loss/de-pigmentation can occur from medical procedures, trauma from burns or accidents, congenital anomalies, or different types of skin diseases.
Although medical treatments and surgical procedures can correct or improve the appearance of many types of scars and skin abnormalities, some patients still need the skin color of the treated area to be “re-applied” so it appears more “normal”.
Skin or scar camouflage is tattooing of the skin with different colors of flesh tone pigments. Its purpose is to disguise a scar or skin area that is missing pigment or color. Scar camouflage requires advanced knowledge, training, skills, and experience in permanent cosmetics as well as an artistic eye for color and skin tones. We understand the science behind pigments and the physiology of human skin tissue.
By helping to improve a person’s appearance and body image, we aim to help those in need regain their self-confidence.
