Scars - Burns - Skin
Camouflage & Relaxation
A lot of emotions can be triggered just by looking at a scar, skin graft, or burn on your body - often reminders of a trauma you went through, or perhaps feelings of anguish, low self-esteem and lack of confidence when you see yourself in the mirror.
Scar and skin camouflage can be a solution, using medical tattooing to introduce skin-tone pigments into the skin, helping to minimise the differences in skin tone so that they are less noticeable.
As well as any visual differences, you may also be experiencing scar tightness/contracture which can be uncomfortable and may be limiting your range of movement in the affected area. Scar relaxation therapy can help break down your tough scar tissue, release the tightness, and flatten raised scars - with the added bonus that treatment can trigger your body to add colour back into pale, white scars.

Scar & Skin Camouflage
Using medical tattooing to introduce skin-tone pigments into the skin, differences in skin tone can be minimised so that they are less noticeable.
This is especially effective for treating skin grafts and reconstructed breast tissue which can be obvious due to the difference in colour compared with the surrounding healthy skin.
With exception of keloid scars and scars that are red / purple in colour, it is usually possible to camouflage most white scars with medical tattooing. The scar must be fully healed and at least 6 months old.
Vitiligo may also be camouflaged provided the condition has been dormant for at least 7 years.

Microneedling / mca
MCA (Multi-Trepannic Collagen Actuation, or Microneedling) triggers your body's natural response to produce collagen which can help to flatten any raised scarring and relax any tightness.
This will improve the appearance of your scar or burn and may also help relieve any discomfort you may be experiencing from constriction/tightness.
This treatment is especially effective in softening cleft lip surgery scarring, and is complimented perfectly with a lip blush tattoo to restore the shape and colour of the lip.
MCA can also trigger your body to produce melanin which can re-pigment the affected skin helping to reduce the "whiteness" of your scar so that it is less visible.
This is can also be a very effective treatment for minimising the appearance of stretchmarks.
From £130 per session.
(Price confirmed at consultation)
For all MCA and camouflaging treatments, multiple sessions are required to achieve the best results and are spaced out sufficiently for adequate healing between treatments.
