As a highly specialized form of permanent makeup artistry, scar camouflage procedures can only be performed by technicians that possess advanced training, skill, and distinct talent. OM Design Studio is one of the very few places for scar camouflage in Dallas, and we welcome clients from all over the country to trust their results to our talented team.
How Does Scar Camouflage Work?
The technical process for scar camouflage and micropigmentation is very similar to that of other permanent makeup procedures. However, because a deeper understanding of tissue science, color theory, and pigmentation are needed to deliver optimal results, there is an added level of knowledge and experience.
Every client that comes to OM Design Studio for a scar camouflage procedure will go through a personalized consultation process. During your consultation, you will meet with a technician to discuss your ideal results in detail. We will determine the best route to achieving your goals, including establishing a plan for color matching and the number of recommended treatments.
A hand-held tool will be used to apply the pigment using an ultra-tiny needle during the actual procedure. Each minute, the system completes hundreds of pinpoint applications, employing both pointillism and pixelation techniques for a dimensional color and texture that mimics your natural skin. The final result is a marked improvement in the appearance of your scar and, in some cases, a scar that becomes nearly undetectable to others.
Who Can Benefit from Scar Camouflage?
Because scar camouflage is such a tailored treatment option, it can benefit many men and women. The procedure is often used to resolve the appearance of scarring or discoloration caused by:
- Stretch marks
- Facial burns
- Discolored scars
- Other skin blemishes
In general, the success rate of the scar camouflage procedure is exceptionally high. Depending on your specific situation, you may require multiple treatments to reach the final results you desire.
One of the most exciting things about the scar camouflage treatment is that it doesn’t just conceal scarring; it can improve a scars overall texture and tone. The digital needling process, much like the one used for microneedling treatments, induces your body’s natural healing response. Since this catalyzes an increase in collagen production, your results can include smoothed texture, improved skin tone, and even a reduction in the noticeability and overall appearance of your scar’s three-dimensional nature.
The best candidates for scar camouflage generally have to scar with the following characteristics:
- The scar should be at least one year old
- The scar should not display redness
- The scar should be a lighter shade than the skin surrounding it
- The scar should not be visibly sunken
Every client at OM Design Studio is unique, so it’s usually best to schedule a consultation appointment to learn if you are a good fit for scar camouflage.
The Benefits of Scar Camouflage
Of course, the most apparent benefit of micropigmentation and scar camouflage is that it is an extremely effective, non-surgical option for reducing the appearance of scarring. But beyond that, the procedure also offers many other promising benefits:
- Exceptional versatility. A wide range of scar types and causes can be improved with scar camouflage, from stretch marks and surgical scars to burns and skin pigmentation disorders. Because the procedure itself is customizable, a skilled technician at OM Design Studio can match their approach to suit your specific scar as best as possible.
- Long-lasting results. Much like other forms of tattooing and permanent makeup, scar camouflage creates results with impressive longevity. Depending on your skin type and other factors, you may only need to complete a single series of treatments. Other clients opt for short touch-up appointments several years after their initial treatment.
- Zero downtime and easy recovery. The actual procedure involves little to no discomfort, and recovery couldn’t be easier. You can immediately return to school or work, and minimal redness is virtually the only possible after-effect to look for – and that will fade within a few days, at most.
