Camouflage of scars with tattooing or micropigmentation

Marks and scars on the skin can cause a major complex in many people, especially when it comes to scars in highly visible areas such as the face and the neck.

At Omicroart we know how important it is for our patients to be able to camouflage those scars that have marked their skin, especially when they remind us that they were caused by a traumatic event and we want to erase them regardless of the visibility of the place where they are located. Today it is possible to camouflage them thanks to the techniques of micropigmentation or scar tattooing, with truly surprisingly natural results.


What is scar micropigmentation?

Scar micropigmentation is a technique that allows the camouflaging the marks and scars on the skin thanks to the application of coloured pigments, creating a colour that is almost exactly the same as the surrounding healthy skin where it is applied.

It is a non-invasive and painless technique that allows to camouflage and improve the appearance of any body or facial scar when the surgery cannot be applied.

Differences between tattooing and micropigmentation of scars

At present, there are two techniques for concealing scars: tattooing or micropigmentation. They are different techniques but achieve similar results.

If the colour of the tattoo lasts for life, then why not get a tattoo? What exactly are the differences between a tattoo and a micropigmentation treatment?

Although the purpose of both micropigmentation and tattooing are the same, the technique, the equipment and the composition of the colours used are different.

The tattoo ink is more permanent and has greater durability, however, the colours are more vibrant and less natural, furthermore, the inks with a greater composition of red have a higher incidence of allergy, which is why we advise you to carry out an allergy test beforehand.

The micropigmentation process is carried out with the help of a digital device called a dermograph, which uses nano-needles through which the pigment is inserted into the different layers of the skin, in a similar way to a tattoo, but less traumatic for the skin.

Scar recovery

Although the reality is that the scar does not disappear, after the application of the micropigmentation treatment an almost perfect optical reconstruction is achieved, reducing the size of the scars visually and improving the tone, texture and luminosity of the skin.

For the care and recovery of the scar, it is sufficient to take certain precautions after the treatment, such as keeping the area clean and dry as well as properly cared for with a healing and highly moisturising cream, for at least two weeks.

Paramedical micropigmentation

Paramedical micropigmentationis the technique that allows to hide scars, retouch asymmetries, repair damaged areas, as well as to design and beautify areas that have been injured after trauma or surgery.

Thanks to paramedical micropigmentation treatments, we can restore the skin and tissues to their original appearance, matching the tone and symmetry with surprisingly natural results.

The camouflage of scars around the areolas (periareolar) is one of the most popular treatments.

Using current paramedical micropigmentation techniques, we can not only camouflage the scars around the areolas after breast surgery, but also reconstruct the nipple-areola complex in cases where there have been injuries after surgery, achieving very natural results and helping women who have undergone a traumatic process to recover their self-esteem and femininity.

At Omicroart, we are specialists in the micropigmentation of scars and optical correction of facial or body asymmetries, with very natural results.

We take care of every single detail to achieve maximum naturalness in the results, prioritising the needs of each patient.
