Say goodbye to unwanted marks with scar camouflage! Brazilian camouflage tattooing, also known as scar camouflage, is a medical procedure that uses specialized tattooing techniques to address a variety of concerns. It effectively reduces the appearance of scars, stretch marks, age spots, and even vitiligo (loss of skin pigment). The goal is to seamlessly blend these marks with your natural skin tone, minimizing their visibility and boosting your confidence.

Unlike traditional tattooing, inkless stretch mark removal uses a customized blend of serums instead of ink. This gentle approach helps your skin heal itself by stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and melanin. These are the building blocks for smoother, healthier skin, improving the tone, texture, and overall appearance of your stretch marks.

Trying to make it as inconspicuous to the naked eye as possible.

    • Face lift scars
    • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) scars
    • Cleft palate reconstruction
    • Stretch marks
    • Orthopedic surgery scars

    Scar camouflage works best for lighter or white scars that blend poorly with surrounding skin. Unfortunately, it’s not suitable for darker scars, raised or keloid scars, or scars on those with certain skin conditions. Fresh scars are also not recommended for this procedure. It’s important to wait at least 1 year after a scar forms before considering camouflage. Scars can change significantly during this time.

    The following current conditions exclude you from being an eligible candidate:

    Medical Conditions:

    • Pregnancy/Lactation
    • Bleeding Disorders
    • Cancer
    • Currently taking antibiotics or steroids
    • Currently receiving chemo/radiation treatment

    Skin Conditions:

    • History of Keloid scarring
    • History of hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation or pigmentation disorders
    • Unhealthy or broken skin
    • Inflammation
    • Extensive sun or tanning (3 days before and 8 weeks after)
    • Accutane use in the past 6 months to 1 year in the treated area
    • Use of Glycolic acid products, Retin-A, or Renova in the past 4 weeks in treated area

    Other Considerations:

    • Waxing the area to be treated in the past 7 days
    • Any other chemical peel in the treated area within 8 weeks
    • History of Herpes Simplex (with exceptions – see below)
    • Herpes Exception: If the area to be treated is prone to cold sores, a preventive dose of Acyclovir/Valtrex is required for scar camouflage.

    Days 1-3: You may experience redness, swelling, tightness, and/or a burning sensation similar to sunburn.

    Days 4-7: The treated area will likely become dry, flaky, and might develop a small amount of scabbing.

    Expect some discomfort during scar camouflage treatment, ranging from a mild 2 to a more intense 6 on a pain scale depending on the treated area. While numbing agents are typically avoided because they can temporarily whiten the skin (blanching) and obscure the scar border, a topical anesthetic will be applied to help manage discomfort. This will also depend on your pain tolerance.

    Scar camouflage tattooing isn’t suitable for lightening darker scars. In fact, attempting to tattoo over hyperpigmented areas can actually make them worse by causing increased hyperpigmentation.

    While a consultation will determine the specific number of sessions needed for your case, scar camouflage tattooing typically requires 2-3 sessions to achieve optimal results. In some cases, achieving the most seamless color transitions may necessitate additional sessions (3-4 total) where a “wash” of color is layered onto the scar gradually.

    Scar camouflage typically involves a consultation, which can sometimes be combined with a 30-minute test patch to determine the ideal color for your skin tone. The actual scar camouflage procedure itself can take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour, depending on the scar’s size and complexity. In total, expect appointments to vary between 1-3 hours, and potentially require 2-3 sessions to achieve the desired outcome.

    Following the aftercare instructions carefully will help your scar camouflage heal properly and ensure the best results that last.

    • Keep your tattoo clean: Gently cleanse the tattooed area with mild soap and water, avoiding harsh chemicals.
    • Hydration matters: Apply a recommended ointment or lotion to keep the skin hydrated and prevent dryness.
    • Sun protection is essential: Protect your tattoo from direct sunlight using clothing or sunscreen with high SPF.
    • Resist the urge to itch: Avoid scratching or picking at the tattooed area to prevent irritation.
    • Follow your artist’s instructions: Adhere to any additional aftercare guidelines the tattoo artist provides for the best results.
    • Final results take time: Full results are visible after 7-10 days of healing.
    • Follow-up and touch-up are likely: Expect a follow-up visit in 4-6 weeks to assess color and potentially receive minor touch-up for a natural blend.
    • Scar camouflage is gradual: Similar to a digital image built from pixels, scar camouflage uses a “dotted” or “pixelated” technique to achieve a natural, blended look.
    • Multiple sessions might be needed: Adding color conservatively ensures a natural result, so several procedures may be necessary.

    Scar camouflage offers a dramatic transformation, minimizing the appearance of scars and leaving you with smoother, more even-toned skin. Imagine a future where scars become a distant memory!

    The scar camouflage acts like a permanent layer of your natural skin tone. When you tan, the rest of your skin gets darker, but the camouflaged areas stay the same color. Because the bright white is gone, the scars blend in more and become less noticeable.
