How Can We Help?
Scars occur for many reasons, but it doesn’t matter where they came from or how they appeared. For many, they are signs of great victory, the mark of survival. For many others, they remind them of a chapter they would prefer to close.
Scar camouflage is a unique paramedical tattooing technique that uses skin-coloured pigments to blend in the scarred area with your surrounding natural skin. By using a technique similar to permanent makeup, this method camouflages the appearance of scarring, stretch marks and more.
Tracy will require a consultation with you before your treatment to assess the area you want to camouflage. She will also assess your skin colour to ensure the most suitable pigment is chosen for you. Get in touch today to find out more and head to the gallery to see some incredible results.

The permanent makeup pigment is designed to remain under the skin forever however, it is likely to fade over time that means you will require it topping up after a period of time. After your initial session and the healing process has complete, you will need to come back for a top-up after 6 to 8 weeks. This is to ensure you are happy with the colour and shape of your healed brows and fill in any areas which may have been missed. They will then last between 12 and 18 months when you will need to return for the colour to be freshened up.
100%. A consultation is where we can discuss your treatment in detail. You will sit down together and Tracy can find out what it is you are wanting to achieve with your results.
