Scar & Stretch Mark Camouflage
Scars on your body and face can leave you feeling imperfect, uncomfortable and lacking confidence. Scar camouflage at Maya Permanent Makeup is a long-term solution for camouflaging scarring. We do this through the infusion of pigment into scar tissues.
Using FDA-approved prescriptive colors and the highest quality equipment, our experienced technicians skillfully implant skin toned pigments into your scar, mimicking your skin tone and blending your scar into the surrounding skin or hair. We can also smooth and relax scars with irregular texture by using precise nano needling to generate micro-trauma to the skin. This stimulates the body’s wound healing response, leaving your scar tissue less firm and more even.
During your consultation your expert technician will carefully analyze your scarring to see if nano needling will benefit you. Scars must be more than six months old before we can perform the procedure. We also evaluate your natural coloring. Due to the slightly higher allergy risk in red pigments and the uniqueness of scar tissue, we recommend a patch test four weeks before the scheduled treatment. This ensures that the correct colors will be chosen for you and the finished result is in line with your expectations.

Q. What About Tanning?
It’s crucial that your skin is NOT tanned at the time of the treatment. The prescriptive skin shade pigments need to be blended to match your natural skin color. If your tan fades, you’ll end up with a mismatch, and your treated scar will look darker than the surrounding skin. Treatments are most effective in areas not exposed to sunlight on a regular basis. It’s also important to keep sun exposure to a minimum once your scar has been camouflaged.
Q. Will the Procedure Hurt?
If your scarring has sensation, we make sure to apply numbing agents. Most clients feel little to no pain. We will continually check to see how you’re feeling and make sure you’re comfortable.
Q. When Will I Be Able to Go Back to Work?
Immediately. Typically the area around your treatment may be slightly red for 48-72 hours, but that should be the only after effect.
