If you've undergone a trauma, surgery, or something else that has led you to have scarring, or you were born with a birthmark or other imperfection that you dislike, you don't have to live with it forever. At iContour Anti-Aging Center, our team and licensed permanent tattoo artists and aestheticians offer scar camouflaging to disguise these imperfections that make you uncomfortable in your skin. For more information on how cosmetic tattooing can help reduce the appearance of scarring, schedule an appointment at our Boston, MA office today.
When you choose to have your scar camouflaged at iContour Anti-Aging Center, you are saying no to a difficult cosmetic procedure and yes to a simple, relatively quick and effective solution. Utilizing paramedical micropigmentation, we can blend your scars, birthmarks, or other imperfections into your natural skin, reducing the appearance of your trouble area. Many people choose to have this procedure after cosmetic surgery, trauma, tummy tuck, mastectomy, and more. The length of your procedure will vary, depending on the areas being treated, and in some cases, it could take multiple sessions to get your desired results. However, most of our patients love their results and feel much more comfortable in their skin. After your treatment, we will apply a healing ointment and cover up your treated areas with a protective covering. Once you leave our office, you can go right on with your day, although you may experience some redness or tenderness at your treatment area(s). It's important to follow all post-treatment care and cleansing instructions to help your treated areas heal properly. We may ask to see you once healed to ensure the outcome is as expected or to make any touch-ups.
Do scar treatments hurt?
While scar treatment procedures are a medical tattoo, most patients don’t experience much discomfort. Before we begin, we can apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to help keep you comfortable. The size and location of the scar can affect sensitivity, but most patients find treatment in even the most sensitive body areas very tolerable.
Is scar camouflaging with cosmetic tattooing safe?
Yes, it is. Like other types of cosmetic tattooing, scar camouflaging is very safe and effective, with little to no risk of complications. The instruments we use are single-use, medical-grade, and sterilized after every treatment.
What types of scars can be treated?
Just about any type of scar or skin discoloration can be improved with a scar treatment, including:
What areas of the body can be treated?
We can treat a scar on any part of the body, including the head, face, body, arms, legs, and hands.
