The Color of Confidence
Skin re-pigmentation is a positive solution to conceal imperfections by mimicking skin and restoring confidence. Each skin imperfection and scar is as unique as the living canvas in which it resides. Each application is customized for each person to recreate the natural and unique features of the individual. Skin-regimentation, also known as camouflage tattooing, can camouflage imperfections for any skin tone.
Thousands of cells, hundreds of blood vessels, hair follicles, and melanocytes combine to make a unique blend of colors within the skin. It is important that the practitioner captures the characteristics of the skin for the most realistic outcome. The texture and size of the scar will not go away but the right blend of colors can make it less noticeable. Pigments are selected to closely match the surrounding skin then carefully tattooed to blend with it. The result is a natural skin like appearance.

What Can I Expect?
The recovery time is relatively quick, just a few days for most. Usually, only a couple of sessions are needed to effectively camouflage the area. Scars should be fully healed and present no redness in order to qualify for the camouflage procedure. Some medical conditions may need medical clearance such as Alopecia in its inflammatory phase or patients currently receiving chemotherapy treatments. Sometimes certain medications and/or activities may need to be avoided for a short period of time. Lastly, a simple aftercare plan will be created for your specific needs.
A Shade Above the Rest
We use the highest quality camouflage pigments that are formulated to look transparent once healed. Traditional tattoo pigments are completely different in that they look bright and bold when healed.
