Inkless Scar Revision
Inkless scar revision is a method of revising scars with a vitamin serum prior to, or in place of, camouflage tattooing. The vitamin serum is absorbed by the skin after needling with a rotary tattoo machine. Combined with needling the serum uses the body’s natural healing response to improve the appearance of the scar. In some cases there was a 50% increase in appearance after the 1st treatment.
Before Treatment: There is very little you need to do, Though I do ask that you come in lose fitting clothes since that area will be tender. You will also need to stop any blood thinners (aspirin, fish oil exc.) 3 days before.
During Treatment: Because I use a tattoo machine I will apply numbing cream before we start. Though this treatment is not to painful I want my clients to be as comfortable as they can be. Throughout the treatment I will be applying a serum that will help renew and regenerate old skin cells. That means over the 6 week healing phase you will see improvement in the color, texture, and size of your scar.
After Treatment: Except to feel a little sore and tender in that area for the rest of the day. It will be red but that will subside in 1-4 weeks. You will need to apply a few post care creams morning and night for 4 weeks after your treatment. 2-4 treatments could be needed to reach your desired results.
