Medical Tattoo Questions: What Exactly is Scar Camouflage?

You might be wondering how this works. To begin the scar camouflage process, Ruth will measure the area to be corrected as well as take pictures to assist her in working on custom blending a color for your next appointment. Using only organic pigments, the issue of color-oxidation and iron oxides are at-once avoided — as the majority of Swissa’s patients seek oxidized color correction (often from past tattoos and permanent makeup procedures). Small areas may be tested to determine which color best matches and will deliver optimal results. Although scar camouflage may take several visits to complete, the results are well worth it. Medical tattooing / medical micropigmentation has been termed ‘the final step of recovery’ by patients and medical professionals alike.
