Scar Camouflage Tattooing

The most suitable scars to treat with micropigmentation are light in colour. Additionally, it is important that the micropigmentation procedure is carried out when the skin is not tanned as the success of the treatment depends on selecting pigments that are close to the natural skin tone.  If tanned skin is colour matched and the tan fades, the infused pigment will not fade, leaving a noticeable demarcation between the healthy skin and the treated scar tissue.  The reverse is also a consideration and you must accept that sun exposure must be minimal once the scar has been camouflaged, as the scar will not tan like the surrounding skin.

In cases where the scar area is quite large, several re-pigmentation procedures may be required—as with the large scar on the arm above.  In such cases, the tonal variances of the normal skin can be simulated, including the addition of freckles, to help the area lacking colour merge with the surrounding skin.

In order to match the subtle variations found in your natural skin tone, Kyla may need to patch test several different pigment choices.  The test areas will develop over 6 weeks, after which time you and Kyla will decide on which of the pigments tested are closest to your surrounding skin tone.  Kyla will then implant the chosen pigments into the scar, using her Titian Wash™ technique.

Each re-pigmentation session normally takes one hour.  You may require only one treatment session, or multiple sessions if you have a larger area to cover or if your skin proves to be more resistant to the pigments.  Every person’s skin type, skin thickness, color level, and presence of thick or thin layers of scar tissue will cause pigments to absorb differently.  All of these factors are assessed during the consultation and test patch of treatment.  Kyla will take time to discuss your particular situation with you.

NOTE:
Micropigmentation camouflage work DOES NOT TAN, because the skin in the hypo-pigmented area (skin lacking colour) is no longer capable of tanning.  However, a re-pigmented area will be much less noticeable when you tan, and can be temporarily darkened with temporary tan products.

Skin and Vitiligo Camouflage Tattooing

The success of the Pigmentation for Vitiligo procedure is dependent on the correct skin tone colours being selected to achieve a look that ‘merges’ into the surrounding skin.  In order to achieve optimal results, Kyla will create custom blends of pigment and may carry out several test patches on the vitiligo site.  After 6 weeks the colour will stabilize and you and Kyla will be able to decide on which of the patch test colours to proceed with.

Once the colours have been decided upon, Kyla will implant the pigments into the vitiligo sites using her Titian Wash™ technique.  This will mimic the subtle colour variations found in your natural skin.

Tattooing for Men

Restoring Strength to Features

Conventional cosmetics can look effeminate on men because the pigments sit on top of the skin and appear shiny.  In micropigmentation procedures, pigments are implanted into the skin itself, producing more natural looking and more permanent results.  Popular treatments include subtle enhancements to the eyebrows and eyes, both of which strengthen male facial features.

Hair Transplant Camouflage Tattooing

Scars from brain surgery or hair transplants can be successfully and discretely camouflaged by Kyla.  Kyla uses a combination of colours for a subtle effect, shading and replacing opticle hairs on old transplant scars or between the transplants along the hairline. Men can be reassured that it won’t look like make-up.

Hair Simulation Tattooing

If you have sparse or missing hair due to illness, trauma or surgery, micropigmentation is an ideal solution.  Using ultra-thin strokes Kyla can simulate the appearance of hair wherever you have lost it.
