Scars and their appearance are always a personal matter, no matter how big or small, they are all equally important.
Automobile accidents are devastating. The face in the mirror no longer looks like the face we knew before the accident. Dealing with the emotional and sometimes brutal physical changes in appearance can be overwhelming.
There are many types of plastic surgery scars such as:
• Breast reductions
• Tummy tucks
• Face lifts
• Laser treatments
Scar camouflage is considered a complex pigmenting procedure often requiring several applications and techniques for blending and natural appearance.
How Does Scar Camouflage Work?
Permanent makeup, micropigmentation, or dermagraphics, is the process of depositing microns of colored pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. Reinstatement of eyebrows, lips, eyeliner, camouflaging skin imperfections and scars are helping men and women regain self-esteem and confidence after tragedy.
Dermagraphics offers a large range of pigments and provides customized color combinations to ensure the closest possible match to your natural skin color.
In different cases multiple surgeries are required to restore facial features. When plastic surgery comes to an end, permanent makeup and scar camouflaging begins, recreating a normal look as artistically and scientifically as possible.
It's Not Just For Women!
Men with patches of facial scars in their beard or moustache often choose permanent makeup as a solution to topical makeup blending pigment with the existing facial hair.
• Eyebrows - Cuts and stitches in the eyebrow area are the most common injuries leaving scars and bald areas that never fill in. Person brow strokes can be applied to simulate eyebrow hairs eliminating the need for daily eyebrow pencil application.
• Eyelashes - Techniques with eyeliner are used and applied to fill in and mimic eyelashes on both men and women.
• Lips - Lip line and color can be developed and restored in stages even in the worst cases. Tradition pigments are mixed according to the client’s skin tone, ethnic background, hair and eye color.
• Blending - Personal photographs are a great tool for redesign and restoration. The main concern in camouflage pigmentation is to correct skin color defects and the illusion of smoother skin. A variety of techniques to blend skin tones such as adding freckles may require additional visits. With endurance the final goal is achieved restoring self-image and self-esteem.
Are There Risks / Drawbacks to Scar camouflage?
The only downside to scar camouflage is that you will not be able to tan the treated area. For sunbathers this procedure will not be successful, since tanning permanently changes the amount of pigment and melanin in your skin. Protracted or consistent exposure to the sun will detract from the desired effect and may cause discoloration.
What Is The First Step?
Consultations are a must prior to any permanent makeup procedure to develop and design a treatment plan. It is significant to understand possibilities and limitations of permanent makeup that vary with each individual. The facial reinstatement of a client may involve multiple sessions over a period of months with extreme precision. Often family members accompany clients offering their support and opinion.
