Scar corrections

Why scar corrections?

 

Scars are caused under different circumstances and on all body parts scars can be found. Two things we can improve with medical tattooing:

  • Severe discoloration we be camouflaged with the right colors
  • Hypertrophic scars (sometimes keloids) can be made softer and more flat, if successful, we can also do a color correction if necessary.

Sometimes the scans are so thick and rigid that we use medication to soften the scar . The plastic surgeon makes a prescription to use the medication on the patient, we will tattoo this medication into the scar. The use of this technique softens the scar evenly and is very pleasant for the patient, it gives the patient more mobility, this is especially true for scars caused by burns.

Causes of scarring:

  • Operation/surgery
  • Burns
  • Auto-mutilation
  • Accident
