Looking for a way to diminish the appearance of your scar? Whether it’s a scar from surgery, an injury or a burn, I can help!
All scars are unique. Cause, location and age can all play a part in determining what treatment is best for you.
Treatment options include Scar Needling (Collagen Induction Therapy), Inkless Scar Camouflage and Scar Camouflage with Ink.
Oftentimes, a combination of treatments is used. A consultation will help us determine what option(s) are best for you!
did you know…?
Collagen (the same thing that helps our skin stay youthful) is also responsible for our scars??? Scars are the result of an over or under production of collagen during the healing process.
Consultations are needed before determining the best treatment option. During the consultation, I’ll be able to assess the scar and we can talk about any questions or concerns you may have before we book your appointment. Consultations are free and can be done in person or virtually!
As a general rule of thumb, the scar should be fully healed before we begin work on it. All scars are unique, so the exact time between injury and camouflage will vary.
The amount of sessions needed is dependent on your goals, what treatment option we choose and how well your scar responds. I see many clients for 2-5 sessions.
There is a level of discomfort associated with scar camouflage, but most clients are pleasantly surprised with how tolerable the session is. Some scars can be hyper-sensitive, but most scars have less feeling than normal tissue, making the treatments even easier!
Your scar will be raised and tender after your treatment, but should still heal quickly. Most clients are healed within 1 – 2 weeks.
Aftercare instructions will be given to you at the time of your appointment and includes instructions on how to keep it clean and what products can be used on it. Your session should not be scheduled right before any plans you have to be in the water (beach vacations, swimming, etc).
