Think of microblading as a type of eyebrow architecture that creates the best shape for your face.

Microblading uses a super-precise tool along with the Golden Ratio Measurements to establish the perfect outline.

The tool is effectively like a pen, but the nib is a sloped blade with little needles at the end that don’t penetrate the skin, only delicately scratching the surface. The needle very softly lays featherweight strokes with medical-grade pigment on the skin, creating fine, realistic, natural-looking hair strokes.

Microblading is the next generation of brow tattooing.

For the majority of clients, Microblading will take approximately one to two hours from start to finish.

  • Two weeks prior to your Microblading appointment please avoid chemical peels, Botox, fillers and retinoids, (and 30 days post appointment) avoid laser and or dermabrasion of any type.
  • One week prior to your appointment please avoid excess sun exposure and do not tan.
  • 24-hours prior to your appointment it is recommended that you do not drink alcohol, take aspirin, Ibuprofen, niacin, Omega 3 (fish oil) or Vitamin E.
  • On the DAY of your appointment do NOT drink coffee or anything that contains caffeine as it may cause bleeding.
  • Your skin MUST NOT be in the process of healing when getting a Microblading treatment. So you need to wait 6 months AFTER you’re done with your Accutane treatment before having Microblading done on your brows.

YES. But not before and only AFTER 6-8 weeks Post-Microblading can your Touch-up appointment be scheduled. Microblading requires a second touch up appointment, all client’s skin is different and receives the ink differently. It’s impossible to accurately predict how a pigment will be affected by a client’s undertones. So please book your Touch-up appointment 6-8 weeks following your Microblading appointment.

During the Touch-up Appointment I will fill in any missing hair strokes, fill out the shape of the eyebrow as necessary, touch up any light spots, and assess how the skin has reacted to the Microblading process and the chosen color. I make a note of the client’s pigment blend. I can enhance the color of the brows by simply layering in a different shade if needed, to adjust the tone. There are always options.

For most clients the results of quality Microblading will last anywhere from 18-24 months. The pigment naturally exfoliates out of the skin over time causing the pigment to lighten.

You can expect to have beautiful, full looking brows with a perfect arch that are guaranteed to give you that “wow factor”. This long lasting treatment will naturally enhance the way you look. You will spend less time applying makeup to your brows.

Anyone wishing to enhance their brows. Anyone who has shapeless, thin lifeless brows. Those who would like thicker and/or darker brows. Anyone needing an improvement in their brow arch. On the go types who want to spend less time putting makeup on their brows every day. Those who are missing a great deal of, or all of their brow hair.

  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Anyone who has a history of keloids.
  • Diabetics
  • People who have circulatory and/or bleeding disorders
  • Anyone who is taking blood thinners of any kind.

A highly-effective, topical anaesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during your microblading procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure. Having this microblading performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure.

Sun exposure: The sun will extremely soften the look of your tattoo, so sunblock should be used (once healed) to prolong your enhancement.

Regeneration of skin cells: The longer the regeneration takes, the longer the pigment holds.

The speed at which the skin absorbs the pigment: The slower the absorption, the longer the pigment will hold.

Choice of colour: Some colours fade quicker than others, e.g. a blonde colour will fade quicker than a dark brown colour.

Area of treatment: Enhancements to the face, for example, fade more quickly due to constant exposure.

Bleeding during the procedure: Any bleeding during the tattooing procedure will reduce the amount of pigment absorption. Alcohol and certain medications act as blood-thinners and should not be taken prior to and following your appointment.

If you have an ideal shape and colour in mind for combinations brows or microblading, bring a few reference photos with you to your appointment. You may fill in your eyebrows as you normally would so we can take into consideration the shape you desire.

If you regularly get your eyebrows shaped, waxed, threaded or tinted, please do so at least 3 days before your appointment. If there are any stray hairs that fall outside of our final shape, we can remove them.

If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan your trip a minimum of 14 days after the procedure. We require our clients to avoid any blood-thinning medication for a minimum of 72 hours prior to their appointment. This includes Vitamin E, Aspirin, Niacin, fish oil supplements, and Ibuprofen.

Do not drink any alcohol the night before and day of your appointment and limit the amount of caffeine you consume. If you have been on prescription Accutane in the past, you MUST wait at least one year before considering this procedure.

It is highly recommended that you avoid SUN and TANNING BED exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure. If you show up for your appointment with a new tan or a sunburn, you will need to reschedule and will forfeit your deposit. As your skin exfoliates from a sunburn, it will take the pigment with it.

Your microbladed brows will appear darker and more intense than expected for the first few days. This will gradually lighten during the complete healing process. Redness and swelling are minimal. You will receive aftercare instructions via email.

You will receive aftercare instructions via email. It is highly beneficial to follow these instructions to ensure a comfortable healing process and to achieve the best results.

Absolutely! My studio is a private, by appointment only space shared with a plastic surgeon – so it’s surgically clean. I wear a mask and gloves with all clients as do my clients. I also ask clients to wash their hands whilst in my studio. After each treatment everything is washed down with medical grade cleaning products and clients do not cross with any other clients during their visit.

Appointments can only be made via my online booking system.

Please note that a deposit $150 is required to schedule and secure your appointment. This is deducted from the total price.

I accept CASH, CREDIT and DEBIT payments.


Nano brows are a cosmetic eyebrow tattoo that gives the brows volume and definition by adding fine hair strokes between the natural hairs.

Unlike the classic microblading technique NANO BROWS are done with a PMU machine that implements PMU PIGMENT into the dermis layer of the skin.

The pigments are inserted in thin strokes that resemble the brow hairs, so the final look is very natural – the strokes are indistinguishable from the hairs.

Of course, the technique can also recreate brow arches from scratch for clients who have very little to no brows due to certain conditions.

The results stay visible for 1.5 to 2.5 years, at which point they’ll fade away if left untouched.

Nano brow is done by puncturing the skin with a PMU machine and depositing pigments into it, to create hair-like tattoo strokes. A PMU machine is very similar to a tattoo machine – it has a super-thin vibrating needle that pokes the skin.

As the name suggests, the treatment is done with a nano needle, a needle so thin it mimics the diameter of a brow hair. So the strokes created are very delicate and look indistinguishable from natural hairs.

Permanent makeup only reaches the second layer of the skin, the dermis. This allows the pigments to gradually fade due to the skin’s natural cell turnover cycle.

Nano brows are created over 2 sessions – the initial implementation, and the 4 week later touch up.

The initial treatment takes about 2-2.5 hours, depending on how much work is done.

If the brows are created from scratch, the treatment will probably take even longer. Please note that this technique takes longer than a microblading session. Plan your time accordingly. We can not rush or take shortcuts.

The touch up session is shorter. This is an opportunity to assess how the brows have healed and add more pigment where necessary – some of it will probably have faded during healing. Depending on the amount of work that needs to be done, it shouldn’t take more than 60 to 90 minutes.

Here are the main steps of the nano brows procedure:

1. Consultation
Generally the consultation is done within the first session of the NANO BROW procedure. You will get informed about the treatment, pre-care and aftercare and learn what to expect during and after the procedure.

We assess your skin and check your medical record to make sure there are no contraindications. We will discuss the shape and color. We can do a pre consultation and do a patch test to make sure you are not allergic to the pigments.

Allergic reactions to pigments are very rare, but they do happen. A patch test done before the procedure eliminates this possibility for those who have a history of allergic reactions. Please email at booking@ralucamb.com beforehand if you need a separate appointment for only a consultation or a patch test.

2. Numbing
If necessary, a topical anesthetic is applied onto the skin to numb the pain. It takes a few minutes to start working, and once it does, the semi tattooing starts.

3. Tattooing (semi  permanent)
We create the hair strokes with an electric device. It will take 2 passes (or more) to make sure enough pigment was implanted.

4. Touch-up
Once your brows heal, 4 weeks later, you need to have a follow-up session, during which we add more pigment in the spots that may have healed lighter and make any necessary corrections.

After this, you’re all done and you can finally enjoy your perfect arches.

Anyone who wants a natural-looking enhancement for their brows!

So you can get nano brows regardless of skin type, but be aware that pigments tend to fade faster for oilier skin.

Apart from that, there are certain contraindications, just like with any semi permanent procedure.

The nano brows treatment is not safe for:

  • People with any bleeding disorders
  • People who take blood-thinning medications (consult your doctor and discontinue use if possible)
  • Pregnant or nursing women
  • People with a history of keloids or hypertrophic scarring (take a patch test first)
  • People with viral infections or diseases
  • People who are going through chemotherapy
  • People with skin irritations, Rosacea, Eczema or Psoriasis near the treated area
  • People whose skin was sunburned recently. Wait at least 7 days prior to treatment.

You may experience some discomfort during the treatment, but nano brows don’t really hurt. We use numbing to eliminate the pain, but you may feel pressure and a pinching sensation.

Once the anesthetic wears off after the treatment, you might feel some tenderness.

You can also expect some redness and swelling, but it will subside in a day or 2. This is very normal.

Generally NANO procedures are no open wounds and it is considered non-invasive, the nano eyebrow procedure is safe if done properly. Choose your artist wisely.

That’s why you should only trust certified, licensed and experienced artists who work in sterile conditions to perform the treatment.

Never go to an uncertified, self-taught artist!


A lip tattoo is a permanent makeup procedure that involves inserting pigments beneath the surface layer of the skin of your lips with a specialized PMU machine.

Lip tattooing is done with several established techniques, depending on the color coverage and the general look that you want to achieve.

Lip shading or LIP BLUSHING is one of the most popular lip tattoo techniques that has become synonymous with the procedure itself.

Lip shading is a very versatile technique that can be customized and adapted to each individual person.

It can be done in many different colors and degrees of opacity, and that’s why you can opt for various shading styles depending on your preferences.

Keep in mind that the true look and color of your lips will be revealed once they have healed completely. They won’t look as opaque and dramatic as they do right after the treatment.

The effects of permanent lip shading vary from person to person, but most commonly they last anywhere from 2-5 years.

The most important factor in the longevity of the results is how well your skin holds cosmetic pigments and how hard your system works to break them down and extract them.

Your lifestyle habits also play a role in lip shading longevity so try to keep sun exposure and frequent swimming in pools and the ocean at a minimum.

You can prolong the effect of your procedure by getting regular touch-ups, which should be done about once a year.

The lip shading procedure begins with a consultation with your artist on the look you want to achieve. Using an electric needle device, the artist will tattoo a million tiny dots on the lips, gradually saturating them in pigment over multiple passes. Since your lips will be numb at this point, you might just feel slight pressure from the machine.

When the procedure is done, your artist will clean the treated area and apply a nourishing balm that will help your freshly tattooed lips stay hydrated.

Lip shading is a permanent makeup treatment that comes with many benefits:

  • It can add color and dimension to lips that are naturally light.
  • It can make thin lips look more voluminous.
  • It can correct lip asymmetry.
  • It can neutralize dark lips.
  • It can camouflage lip scars.
  • It is long-lasting and smudge-proof.

To Conclude
Permanent lip shading is one of the most popular lip enhancement treatments to date. It is also known as lip blushing for its ability to create delicate, natural-looking results.

This treatment is done by blending PMU pigments in a customized shade into the skin of the lips, where they can stay for up to 5 years, or until your body naturally breaks them down.

Lip shading is a great option for anyone who wants to add color to light lips, correct any unevenness in color or shape, or even camouflage lip scars.


The main cause of lip darkening is hyperpigmentation or the overproduction of melanin, which is a common mark of ethnic beauty. This condition causes patches of skin to develop that are darker than the surrounding skin tone.

Inherently, dark lips are natural and beautiful in their own right!

But hyperpigmentation can also be related to sun exposure, hormonal changes, and more, and as such it can affect almost any area of the body, including the lips. Here are the most common causes of hyperpigmentation:

  • Sun exposure
  • Pregnancy
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Overuse of caffeine
  • Lack of hydration
  • Vitamin deficiency
  • Certain medications
  • Certain medical conditions

If you are self-conscious about your dark lip and you are looking for the least invasive way to cover it up, you have probably come across lip blushing on dark lips.

Lip blush is basically done in two sessions. The first one is the initial tattooing and after the lips are healed, 4 weeks after the treatment, a touch up is needed. This is how it is usually done. But dark lip neutralization, especially ethnic lips, usually requires more sessions to achieve satisfying results.

While lip blush is done by coloring the lips, neutralization is needed for lip blushing on dark lips. The first step is to neutralize cool tones and lift the darkness of lips with the help of warm-based pigment.

After the lips are neutralized and healed, a target color can be added if you want it.

Dark lips neutralization is not an easy task to do. It should be done by a skilled and certified lip blush artist, who has experience in lip blushing on dark lips and knows the color theory inside out.

Lip blush can last up to 4 years, but lip blushing on dark lips lasts shorter – its lifespan is 1-2 years. After that, a color refreshment is needed, because the dark spots are going to show back up.

You don’t really choose the neutralization shade – the lip blush artist needs to determine which color to use for neutralization, depending on the nature of your dark lips. This means that we will determine whether greyish, purplish, or brownish hues are dominant and choose the adequate color applying color therapy.

The result is usually a pinkish and peachy shade that looks natural.

Once the lips are bright enough from neutralization, we can do a lip blush session to add another color of your choice on top, once the lips are healed.


Lash Line Enhancement also known as an eyeliner tattoo is a treatment you can receive that replaces the need to wear eyeliner makeup each day.

Permanent eyeliner is a method of placing pigment along the lash line, under the skin, similar to tattooing. This ink is permanent, but has to be touched up every 2 to 5 years.

Eyeliner tattoos can be applied in a variety of styles, from extremely thin and natural-looking liner to thicker lines, and even winged eyeliner. We will begin with a design process for each client to see what styles look best for the shape of the eyes and we like to begin the process with a less-permanent look and more as a lash line enhancement as a sort of trial run for a permanent style.

For starting out, we would recommend the lash line enhancement liner to everyone. We think it is a staple and good for those that want to go natural before committing to a full classic winged style which is thicker. If you wear makeup on a regular basis and want your eyeliner to stand out more, we can suggest a winged eyeliner. We love the classic winged eyeliner for someone who wears eye makeup on a regular basis as it can give a subtle lift to the eyes. You can always start small and add more as you go when receiving touch-ups

Prior to your actual treatment, stop using any sensitizing skincare products (retinol or glycolic acid) around the eye area for a full week before your appointment to avoid irritation. You’ll want to come to your appointment with clean skin that’s completely free of makeup. We also recommend avoiding coffee (or any caffeine for that matter) on the day of your treatment to help you relax and avoid twitching or bleeding.

One important step prior to eyeliner tattoo is to avoid blood thinner medication. Please consult your doctor if you can stop the medication at least 5 to 7 days prior to your eyeliner tattoo appointment.

You will feel a slight buzzing along the lashes where the needle is applying the ink—Eyeliner tattoo has come such a long way from when your mother, aunt, or even grandmother got it and expressed how painful it was. Nowadays it is actually quite relaxing. Using nano needles the skin is not broken and more like puncturing it when inserting the ink. Some clients say they could sleep through the entire procedure. You feel a slight tickle on the lashes but not much else.

An eyeliner tattoo procedure can take up to 2 hours. For most clients, it goes faster, but we like to leave some extra time if numbing (25 min) or mapping (15 min) take a bit longer than expected.

After the treatment, your permanent eyeliner will need 4 weeks to heal. During that time, its color will lighten and some patches will probably emerge.

That’s why you need to go back in for your 4-week touch up. We will assess how the results have healed and numb you up and do a quick pass to replenish the pigment where necessary.

The touch up ensures your results last as long as possible, so it should never be skipped. The treatment is considered incomplete without it.


BB under-eye concealer is a SEMI permanent makeup treatment designed to recreate the effects of regular concealer, to camouflage dark circles under the eyes. The final result is meant to brighten the area under the eyes, but this effect is achieved through the injection of pigmented serums into the skin. The color is placed beneath the skin surface, so it evens out the skin tone from within.

There are actually 2 versions of the treatment which provide results of different lifespans – permanent concealer tattoo done with tattoo ink, and semi-permanent concealer which is done with pigmented serums (BB serums).

Pigment Mixing
The color of the pigment that will be implemented is custom mixed for every client to get the most suitable shade for their skin tone. The mix will be several shades lighter than your complexion to achieve a brightening effect, and it will have an undertone complementary to your skin.

BB glow blush is, essentially, a skincare and semi-permanent makeup hybrid. The procedure uses microneedling or nanoneedling to push tinted serum into the skin and give your cheeks a natural flush and glow.

The results can last for months, and the treatment is safe and minimally invasive. To maintain the results, it’s important to follow proper aftercare instructions and avoid sun exposure and harsh skincare products.

BB glow blush is a cosmetic treatment for those that are looking for that natural, radiant glow.

Here’s what this skincare and permanent makeup hybrid entails.

The reason why nanoneedling should be the go-to technique for BB glow blush is the fact that, the goal with BB glow is to keep the pigment particles close to the surface of the skin, from where they can be exfoliated without permanent retention.

You might be wondering how come the goal isn’t to get the results to last as long as possible, but there’s a reason why BB glow isn’t supposed to be that long-lasting.

Skin-toned and rosy pigments and pigmented serums often have titanium dioxide, a white pigment, as a component.

Titanium dioxide can behave unexpectedly in the skin over time, changing its consistency and color, so it’s not a good idea to insert it into the deeper layers of the skin from where it can’t be eliminated through skin renewal.

NANO-NEEDLE is a skincare treatment that uses tiny needles to puncture the skin and cause controlled microwounds. This triggers the body’s natural healing mechanism and encourages collagen production.

It offers many benefits, mainly improved complexion. But it entails a special aftercare routine. A somewhat strict one. Lots of things need to be avoided, especially exfoliating ingredients like retinol.

Microneedling and BB serums help amplify each other’s effects. The treatment increases serum absorption, while serums provide substances that speed up skin rejuvenation or other desired effects.

Microneedling is an extremely beneficial treatment, but causing hundreds of micro-wounds on purpose means you need to provide your skin with some additional care.

Some of the benefits of BB Glow treatment are here:

  • It hydrates the skin leaving it soft and smooth.
  • Brightens the skin.
  • Gives even skin tone and a fair complexion.
  • Reduces the chances of skin discoloration & pigmentation.
  • Less appearance of pores.
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Helps with under eye dark circles.

The needling. The tech will go over your under-eyes back and forth with the needling device which will inject the color into the skin. They may go over the area several times, wiping between passes.

Finally, the area is wiped clean. A protective moisturizer is applied to it.

If the treatment is done with ink, 1 session may be enough to provide the desired coverage.

But if it’s done with pigments that are less concentrated, at least 2 sessions will be necessary to get 70-80% coverage.

Any additional sessions are done 2-4 weeks apart, and the process is exactly the same as the initial session.

Not really.

The tips of the needles are extremely thin, NANO, and they go very shallow into the skin, so the treatment is generally considered painless. The clients feel the vibrations of the device more than the needling.

Both BB glow and BB blush are designed to enhance the skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. Due to needling, these procedures help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.

Other than these skin benefits, effects achieved with this procedure include:

  • The tinted pigments used in the serum create a subtle and natural-looking flush.
  • BB Glow and BB blush treatment last for several months.
  • The treatment is minimally invasive and does not require any downtime.
  • The tinted pigments used in the serum are made from high-quality, natural ingredients, making this a safe and effective treatment.

The number of sessions required for BB blush can vary depending on factors such as the desired intensity of the blush, skin type, and individual response to the treatment.

Typically, the initial treatment may require 1-2 sessions to achieve the desired result, and additional sessions may be recommended every 6-12 months to maintain the effect.

BB glow blush results usually last for several months, but the exact duration of the results can vary from person to person.

In general, you can expect the results to last anywhere from 3-8 months but for some, it can last up to a year.

The pigments are intended to eventually get exfoliated with the skin and fade as a natural part of the skin’s renewal process.

So, the need for a BB blush touch-up is influenced by your lifestyle, skin type, and how well you take care of your skin after the initial treatment.

Permanent blush and BB glow blush are both cosmetic techniques that involve adding color to the cheeks to give them a natural-looking flush.

However, there are several key differences.

Permanent blush is a tattoo-like procedure where the color is injected into the skin using a needle.

BB blush, on the other hand, is a mix between permanent makeup and skincare since it’s not done with regular PMU pigments and a PMU machine; rather it’s done with a microneedling device and a serum, or a serum/pigment hybrid.

Another difference is in the longevity of the results.

Permanent blush is designed to be permanent (well, at least much longer lasting), while the BB glow blush is semi-permanent and will typically last between 6 and 12 months.

The BB blush treatment is suitable for people with all skin types, including those oily, or combination skin.

It’s ideal for those who want to enhance their natural complexion and add a subtle flush of color to their cheeks.

The results look best on a fair to medium skin tone.

To determine whether you’re a good candidate for BB glow and blush treatment, consult with a licensed and experienced skin expert before booking an appointment.


While BB glow blush is suitable for most people, there are some factors to consider before getting the treatment. You may not be a good candidate for the treatment if you:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Have active skin infections or conditions (active acne, eczema, psoriasis, etc.).
  • Have sensitive skin since the procedure may cause irritation, redness, or inflammation.
  • Have a history of allergies or allergic reactions.
  • Are prone to keloid scarring.
  • Are taking blood-thinning medications or Accutane.
  • Have open wounds or cuts.
  • Are undergoing chemotherapy or antibiotics.
  • Had other skin treatments recently done.

Mostly, people acquire at least 2 treatments on each area (full face, only cheeks or under eye area) to achieve their desired result.

Also depending upon the coverage you need or the flaw that is to be covered up, you might need 3-6 treatments for your very first time.

With a suitable number of treatments on your face and accurate aftercare, the BB Glow results will last up to six months to a year. You will require fewer treatments and its results are progressive that lasts quite long.

After microneedling, go for ingredients that promote skin regeneration and healing, encourage collagen and elastin production and keep the skin hydrated.

  • Hyaluronic Acid
    When it comes to what to put on skin after microneedling immediately, hyaluronic acid is the best choice.

    It’s universally beneficial for all skin types. It’s a component of the connective tissue in your body, and since our body produces it, it’s unlikely this ingredient will cause any reaction. Here’s some of my picks:

NOTE: Something you definitely need to put on skin after microneedling is SPF. You should wear it daily. Consult your technician for product recommendations

  • Epidermal Growth Factors (EGF)
    EGF is a protein in our skin that is involved in the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. It’s in charge of maintaining the skin healthy, dense, and youthful.

    EGF was developed to speed up wound recovery which is why it’s referred to as a healing agent. It stimulates skin growth at the cellular level. And although wrinkles aren’t exactly injuries, because of this property, EGF is often used as an anti-aging ingredient.

    If you are looking to incorporate it into your skincare routine or just use it after microneedling sessions, the Icelandic brand BIOEFFECT has one of the best EGF serums.

    Their trademark formula comes in several variations, including the hyper-concentrated Power Serum.

  • Ceramides
    Ceramides are lipids that make up about half of your skin’s uppermost layer. They help replenish and repair the skin barrier when it’s healing. In other words, ceramides help to seal in moisture and protect the skin from harmful elements.
    Products with this ingredient are a great choice to aid in skin recovery.
  • NiacinamideS
    Niacinamide is a soothing ingredient. It keeps moisture locked in and thus aids the skin’s natural cell turnover process. It also balances oil production and makes your pores look smaller.

    It’s a great ingredient overall, but it shouldn’t be used sooner than about 72 hours after microneedling so it wouldn’t disturb the skin’s natural inflammatory process.

    NOTE: Consult your technician for product recommendations. TEXT: 4249998586


Basically, it’s a tattoo scar covering. It’s a term that encompasses various micropigmentation techniques and treatments designed for diminishing the visibility of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation.

Scar camouflage tattoo or cosmetic tattooing is a needle and pigment technique that blends scars into the surrounding skin using permanent makeup pigments or inks that the body naturally breaks down over time.

A camouflage tattoo is generally considered non-invasive and safe, as it requires little to no downtime and a fairly easy aftercare routine.

The general rule of scar camouflage is that any scar can be camouflaged or re-pigmented as long as it’s not a keloid and it’s healed completely. This means that the source of the scar itself is not as important as its look and feel.

Artists and technicians usually recommend waiting for 6 months to a year or longer if necessary, for the scar to fully heal after surgery or injury. Once fully healed, color correction can be applied to:

  • Surgery caused scars
  • Injury caused scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Cleft lip and palate scars
  • Age spots
  • Burns
  • Hypopigmentation

It’s important to note that how and whether a particular scar can be re-pigmented depends on its nature and how skilled the artist performing the procedure is. The best kind of scars to camouflage are stretch marks since they are flat and much paler than the surrounding skin.

In order to achieve maximum tattoo scar cover-up, artists suggest getting the area microneedled first, to help the skin regain its original texture.

As previously mentioned, most scars can be camouflaged.

However, there are certain skin conditions that can make it difficult or unsafe to do a successful camouflage procedure. Those conditions include:

  • Keloids
  • Spider veins
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Thinned, translucent skin

Scar camouflage can treat various types of facial and body scarring. From covering acne scars to stretch marks, the physical benefits of scar camouflage treatments are truly life-changing. Here’s a look at all the scar camouflage treatments available:

  • Facial Scar Camouflage Treatments
    Facial scars can be covered up with permanent makeup quite successfully. Here’s how:
    • Permanent Brow Shading (Powder or Combo Brows)
      Permanent brow shading is a form of brow tattoo done with an electric PMU device very similar to a tattoo gun. It implies implementing tiny dots of pigment into the skin or the scar tissue to create the look of wearing brow powder.

      This technique can blend scars into the brow arches very efficiently.

      Regardless of what you may have read online, microblading isn’t the best option for covering scars, as scar tissue can’t really hold pigment strokes and they blur.

      However, it’s possible to shade the scar and the body and tail of the arch, and add strokes on the healthy skin to get a combo brow.

    • Lip Blush or Lip Tattoo
      Another permanent makeup treatment that’s perfect for reshaping and rebalancing the lips after cleft palate and lip reconstruction surgery. A PMU machine is used to deposit pigment into the lips, evening out their color and making them look fuller and more prominent, blending in the scar.
  • Body & Scalp Scar Camouflage Treatments
    Depending on the location of the scar, there are several methods of tattoo scar covering on the body.
    • Nipple and Areola Tattoo
      Nipple and areola tattoos are a form of paramedical micropigmentation, used most often as a final step to breast reconstruction surgery. They create a realistic, 3D representation of the clients’ nipple and areola, using an electric PMU machine.

      As part of the nipple/areola tattooing, scars in the area are also camouflaged.

    • Stretch Mark Tattoo
      A stretch mark tattoo is a form of micropigmentation, where an electric PMU machine is used to deposit pigment that matches the color of the skin surrounding the stretch mark area, reducing their visibility.
    • Scalp Micropigmentation
      Scalp micropigmentation is a form of cosmetic tattooing done with an electric PMU machine, that mimics the density of hair follicles, oftentimes covering scars by blending them in and correcting the natural hairline.
    • Microneedling is considered Dry Tattooing
      Okay, so these aren’t exactly micropigmentation, but these two treatments are effective for reducing the visibility of scars.

      Microneedling is a treatment that involves controlled puncturing of the skin with thin needles, in order to trigger the collagen production and skin regeneration.

      Dry tattooing, better known as MCA dry needling, is a similar, but more specialized technique developed exclusively for treating scarring.

      The techniques are similar to tattooing in the sense that a needle pokes the skin over and over, but there’s no ink or pigment. As controlled damage is afflicted on the scar tissue, the body starts to repair it, so the scar gets gradually less and less visible.

      So instead of camouflaging the scar, they actually treat it. This is useful on its own, or as preparation for micropigmentation.

      The treatments can be performed on the face mostly for reducing the appearance of acne scars, but also on the scalp and body.

Although generally safe, scar camouflage tattoo does come with some possible risks to look out for:

  • Allergic Reactions
    Allergic reactions to permanent makeup pigments or numbing creams are very rare, but in order to prevent them, your chosen artist or technician should do a patch test before the procedure just to make sure.
  • Infections
    Scar camouflage tattoo requires breaking the surface of the skin to deposit pigment. This leaves the skin susceptible to contamination and subsequent infection. When the treatment is performed with sterilized equipment and if proper aftercare is followed, the risk of infection is minimal.
  • Pigment Migration
    This can be avoided by going to a licensed and experienced technician.
  • Additional Scarring
    Unfortunately, when going to an inexperienced artist, there is a risk of compromising the skin that can end up worsening the look of the scar instead of covering it. This can happen if the skin is overworked or the needle goes in too deep during scar camouflage.

Scalp micropigmentation is a noninvasive, non-surgical hair restoration technique that creates the look of realistic hair follicles by tattooing thousands of simulated, pigmented microdots into the scalp. This service is ideal for both men and women who may have receding, thinning, or complete hair loss. Also a great solution to consider for those who wish to conceal any minor scarring or alopecia to create the illusion of a healthy scalp. This procedure is uniquely personalized for each individual to achieve their most desired look.

Each session ranges from 2-4 hours, depending on the size of the area needing treatment. Regardless of size, everyone needs between 2-4 sessions, depending on how well the scalp accepts the pigment. Several sessions are needed in order to properly layer over previously healed impressions, to achieve a realistic result.

The treatment is intended for both men and women. It is highly successful in treating thinning hair, bald spots, cowlicks, alopecia, or head scars. This, together with its ability to create a well drawn hairline, has made scalp micro pigmentation one of the most prominent cosmetic hair treatments in the world.

The consultation is a very important part leading up to the procedure. Personalized styles, post care, and pricing will all be discussed during this time. Prices will vary based on the amount of sessions needed.

With proper aftercare, SMP can last 3-8 years. Over time, you will notice slight fading, at which point, a touch-up would be recommended. Proper aftercare, includes avoiding direct sunlight for long periods of time, and wearing SPF 30 to keep your scalp healthy.

There is virtually no downtime involved. Redness subsides after 2-3 days, after each session. Most people return to work the same day or have no issues resuming their regular work and social schedule. New sessions can be scheduled 10-15 days post healing.

The scalp micropigmentation treatment is suitable for both men and women, since it can be used to camouflage a number of hair loss issues. Clients who have very little to no hair, a full shave may be necessary for SMP to be of benefit, recreating the look of a buzz cut. It can also work for clients who have longer hair to build density within thinning or patchy areas.

Both options will be discussed during your consultation.

Yes, to a point. If your hair is longer than a buzzcut and your hairline has started receding, SMP can add some density in the frontal region, but only if the actual hair starts close to the forehead. It can bring down the hairline a bit, without being too obvious. If the recession has gone too far back, the dots of SMP won’t really blend since there’s no hair to blend into, and won’t look natural above the forehead. It will just be a dark shade. Likewise, the SMP can be used at the edges of the hairline on the temples, but it can’t go too far outside of the hairline, or it won’t look natural.

Both options will be discussed during your consultation.

SMP treatment cost is solely dependent upon the amount of work that needs to be done and will be determined on a case by case basis. Prices will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation. SMP is reasonably priced in comparison to other hair loss solutions and transplant surgeries.

  • General cost can be set between $2000 – $4000 for 2-3 sessions
  • Additional sessions range from $500 – $700 per session.
  • Partial payments can be made at each session, to help spread out the cost over time.
  • Deposit is required to book each session.

In artists’ experience, red-haired clients are the most reluctant to go under the SMP needle. They shouldn’t be, since the treatment can turn out great on them, just like it can work great for blonde-haired clients as well.

Gray-hair is actually very easy to work with and the only difference when doing scalp micropigmentation for fair-hair is the shade of the pigment. All emerging hair follicles always have an ash-gray appearance to them, no matter if they’re actually light or dark, it’s only the intensity of that color that varies.

An SMP tattoo machine is used, along with SMP tattoo needles of various sizes. All of which are specifically designed to be used for SMP treatments. The pigment used is carbon based organic pigment and safe for use. Clients report a low to moderate pain level, following somewhere between 1 and 4 on a scale to 10.

SMP can be used to camouflage scars on the scalp, including hair transplant scars. It is a great option to go along with scalp/hair surgery. SMP is also useful in adding density to thinning BEARDS.
