Medical Skin Camouflaging

What is Medical Tattooing?

Medical Tattooing is adding colour to the face and body anywhere that colour is missing from injury or trauma, birth defect, post-surgery or as an alternative to surgery. Our process involves implanting EU pharmaceutical medical grade hypo-allergenic pigments into the skin. We do not implant as deeply as a regular tattoo, as colour adjustment and re positioning may be required in the future. Medical tattooing offers the ‘finishing touch’ post-surgery or trauma.

Skin camouflage involves introducing colour where pigment has been lost. Camouflage can be used to help with hypo pigmented areas of the skin which have developed due to traumas.

Our specialist team can also assist with conditions such as vitiligo, the auto immune condition, which causes a loss of melanin in the skin. Skin camouflage can help by closely matching the existing skin colour. MCA (dry needling) would be the first line of treatment to reproduce melanin with camouflage being a secondary option.

How long will it take?

The treatment should take around 1 hour in total (plus consultation time)

What is the cost?

£150 to £200 per treatment per session.
