Scar Camouflage in Franklin-Nashville, TN
Scars from surgery or injuries can mar your look. Whether the scar is on your face and highly visible or it’s on your body where it reminds you of a bad accident you had, you don’t have to live with it any longer. Dr. Brought uses a scar camouflage technique that can hide scars as if they were never there.
How Does Scar Camouflage Work?
Scar tissue is not the same as your regular skin. Even the most careful cosmetic surgery can result in visible scars that become more evident over time. They often show up as discolored areas where the surgeon repaired or reattached your skin after an incision.
Scar camouflage infuses your scar with skin toned color to make it blend with the skin around it. It is a medical tattoo process that injects color just under the skin. When your scar is the right color, it will be barely noticeable.
Benefits of Scar Camouflage
Hiding a scar can give you a more youthful appearance. Scars, especially those around the face, tend to increase the look of aging. They highlight wrinkles and creases in the face and do not take makeup evenly.
The benefits of scar camouflage include:
- More even makeup application
- No surgery required
- Young-looking skin
- Little recovery time
- Enhanced confidence
Scar camouflage not only makes you look better, but it improves how you feel about yourself. Scars can serve as reminders of past surgeries or injuries. They are often seen as flaws in your appearance. You can gain new confidence by hiding your scars and not having to think about them all the time.
Scar and Skin Camouflage Services
Scar camouflage does not last as long as a tattoo because the pigment used is different. In time, you will need to get the camouflage touched up. Skin and hair color change over time, too, so your scar camouflage might be updated with a different color to keep it blending in.
Scar camouflage is most successful on small scars from tiny cuts or incisions. It can even be used on scars that cut through your eyebrow — which are especially noticeable when you have dark hair. Scar camouflage does work well on thin scars as well, even if they are long.
