Permanent Color for Scars
Imagine no longer worrying about unsightly scars? Or never having to cover them with topical makeup? Or never having to try to conceal them with clothing?Permanent color(make-up) is used to camouflage and conceal scars. It works by gradually blending the color of the skin surrounding the scar to match-so is not noticeable.
A natural mineral-based pigment is deposited into the scar using proprietary equipment that houses a single acupuncture needle that gently vibrates on the dermal layers of the skin. The pigment is deposited pigment into the scar until the desired color and subtle gradient shading is achieved.
A minimum of four sessions are needed on each scar to achieve the final results. Each session is scheduled three weeks apart. Multiple sessions are needed in order to match the color. During each session, pigment is blended into the skin in layers. Because some of the pigment exfoliates after each session, a series of sessions are necessary to build the color into and around the scar to match the natural skin color.
What to expect after procedure?
- Temporary swelling and redness right after your treatment. This may take several days to disappear depending on which area of the body, how much pigment is applied and the general health of the skin.
- Right after the procedure, the color will appear stronger compared with how it will ultimately look. Within a few days, the skin will start to slightly exfoliate and the color will become lighter to become the intended shade. No makeup should be worn on the pigmented skin for seven days after each session.
