Cosmetic Camouflage

Cosmetic Camouflage

Cosmetic Camouflage, or Camouflage Tattooing, can help to heal the appearance of the skin as well as your spirit or self-image. 

Cosmetic camouflage can include improving the look of breast surgery scars, altering areola color or size, facelift scars and other improvements to areas of the skin that have been impacted by surgery.

The procedure that medical doctors often refer to as micro-pigmentation of permanent tattooing, more commonly known as permanent makeup, has become a viable option for quickly and easily helping patients in the appearance aspect of their recovery and healing. Now there’s a growing awareness and agreement among medical professionals regarding this cosmetic solution that they can recommend with confidence and proven results for patients. Many doctors recommend and refer their clients to Sally Hayes for this procedure.

Have realistic expectations with cosmetic camouflage

Scar camouflage can begin once you’ve been cleared for it by your physician. Normally, there is a waiting period of a few months.

If you need cosmetic camouflage, it’s critical that you reach a positive outcome following this process. Cosmetic camouflage can often work quite well, but it’s important for you to understand that this procedure does not guarantee you will completely and instantly remove all visible signs of the previous skin condition. You must have realistic expectations.

In most cases, after a couple of applications, you will see significant improvement of the appearance of the area. 

Choose your permanent makeup artist the same way you choose your surgeon

In getting multiple medical opinions, you have learned a great deal in the process. One thing is clear, not all surgeons are created equal and not all are right from you. It is important to point out that surgeons specializing in oncology or plastic surgery, are all required to live up to the same established ethical, professional and safety regulations and standards. 

It is equally important to point out that, unfortunately, the permanent makeup industry is lagging way behind these critical areas. For example, some permanent makeup technicians often promote themselves as “certified” but what they do not tell you is that they little to no experience. So, it’s important to ask questions because you have the right to feel comfortable and secure about any procedure performed on you. Remember, you’re paying for it and it’s your body. 

In choosing the right permanent makeup artist to apply cosmetic camouflage, you must find someone who has the knowledge, training, caring approach as well as skills and experience you will want and need. After all, the only thing worse than having the appearance of your breasts damaged by surgery, is having their condition worsened by poor camouflage tattooing that is performed by an inferior permanent makeup artist.

Camouflage permanent makeup: the finishing touch

Cosmetic camouflage in the form of areola tattooing often delivers the “finishing touch” for a woman following breast surgery. Camouflaging any scar is critical in putting the experience behind you. It can mark the end of one long or short challenging road and hopefully the beginning of a new, happier and healthier road in your life. After all that you’ve been through, it’s important to look and feel “normal” and “whole” again. Good for you!
