WHAT IS PARAMEDICAL SCAR CAMOUFLAGE TATTOOING?

How do I know if it's right for my scar?

All of our work is customized to the clients skin tone.

In fact, scars are formed to protect the skin, the largest and most remarkable organ of the human body.  If part of the skin is injured, a fibrous matrix will form to protect it from further damage. While this is positive in terms of ensuring full healing, it is often negative in terms of the ultimate appearance, no matter where on the body it may be.

Clients with scars can be assured predictable and positive results from BEAUTYINK®, Vancouver’s award winning cosmetic tattoo boutique. Careful preparation, educational expertise, and comprehensive treatment plans, permits Shauna to use a combination of modalities to promote your own body’s healing process in order to jump start scar improvement over time.

It is imperative that you trust a trained and experienced scar revision professional for best results. Since 2016, Shauna has trained with leaders in the field and worked extensively on compromised and scarred skin. Scars or skin irregularities CANNOT simply be corrected by tattooing skin coloured ink over the area of concern. There are many reasons for this. Only a knowledgeable technician can approach paramedical scar camouflage tattooing and offer reasonable and predictable results.

We apply a combination of paramedical tattoo techniques to treat unsightly, bothersome scars. Firstly, scars can be treated by “breaking down” the tissue using state-of-the-art technology, medical micro-needling. Often times, this is all that is required as the trauma from micro-needling invokes a healing cascade where new melanocytes are formed, where the tissue was once absent of colour. The loss of colour at the site of the scar is often the most troublesome concern. There can be no guarantee, but melanin stimulation is possible with the right skin. Secondly, once the skin is flattened we can proceed with adding layers of colour to blend the uncoloured void in the skin. This process takes multiple procedures over time for best results.

What is scar revision?

Scar revision is the use of micro-channeling and stem cell serums to actively release and stimulate traumatized scar tissue. This is generally used before scar camouflage to flatten and soften the texture of the skin. In some cases it can also stimulate a person’s natural pigmentation. You may have made heard the term medical micro-needling, this is very similar but targets specific area’s with more aggression breaking down the fibrous tissue allowing it to soften and release. This is great for burns or severe trauma.

So what is paramedical scar camouflage tattooing?

Scar camouflage is a form of paramedical tattooing, and in this case, we use skin-coloured tattoo ink. By layering multiple colours we are able to create the illusion of a blended scar. The skin is made up of multiple colours with undertones, mid tones, and over tones. With our custom layering techniques, we implant colour that is missing.

How soon can you get scar camouflage tattooing?

Generally, we recommend one full year of healing from the time of injury. Due to the trauma, the skin tissue can be damaged if it is worked on too soon. The scar must be lighter than your skin tone, and no longer have any pink, red or purple colouring.

How long does the procedure take?

We require a 30 minute complimentary in person consultation to assess your skin and set out a treatment plan. When you are a good candidate, we will schedule you in for a 2-3 hour session. Shauna likes to take her time to make sure you are fully comfortable and understanding the process.

We will see you back for a 6 week check up to assess your healed results and see what steps are required moving forward.

How many sessions will I need?

Shauna has worked miracles in one session for light scarring. Generally, traumatic scarring would require skin revision between 2-4 sessions once healed, we can proceed with pigmentation to achieve the desired results. This includes, layering the colours and detailing work, 1-4 sessions.

My scar is darker than my skin colour, can this be tattooed?

Generally, when the scar is darker this is due to hyper-pigmentation (over production of melanocytes – the cells that pigment your skin).

The tattooing process causes micro injuries that will stimulate this production, further causing the area to darken. When light pigment is added it will result in a chalky, milky look to the skin translating muddy and gray.

We know people are doing this, but it doesn’t mean it’s correct or ethical! This industry is unregulated and there is no governing body looking out for the well being of the public. It solely comes down to the artist’s skill and training. This is why we hold our CPCP (Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professionals) credentials with such high regard. The SPCP (Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals) works by a code of ethics, and requires advanced training and testing for all CPCP holders. Shauna is currently only 1 of 5 that holds this designation in Canada.

Client Testimonials

"I highly recommend Beauty Inc and Shauna. Her studio was scrupulously clean and her Covid protocols were at the very highest level. She took the time to listen to me and gave advice as an experienced beauty expert and technician to finesse my brows. I lost 90% of my eyebrows during menopause which I hated. Now I love my new eyebrows."

Barb Bancroft

"I had such an amazing experience with Shauna at Beauty Ink! I have wanted to get my eyebrows done for several years, but the thought of trusting someone to permanently apply something to a prominent area of my face had me gun shy. I recently decided it was time to take a chance, and I am ecstatic over the results. Shauna provided me with a pain free, comfortable experience, and the quality of her work so exceeded my expectations! She is truly a talented artist, and today I received a thank you card from her in the mail?!!! This wasn’t just a great customer experience, I am blown away by how great I now feel when I look in the mirror, and the great lengths Shauna went to in making me feel like a valued customer!

Celine Clements

"I was so impressed with Shauna’s professionalism and experience. This was only my first session, and I’m so happy with the results so far. It is so evident that she loves her job and genuinely wants to help people. I highly recommend BEAUTYINK®

Kristin Visscher

"If you have any hesitancy about permanent make-up or are in need of a miracle worker to help with botched work, a consultation with Shauna at BEAUTYINK® is an absolute must! Shauna is a gifted artist who refuses to settle for anything less than perfection, and who will use her renowned expertise to ensure you achieve the exact look you desire.

I came to Shauna devastated by the significantly uneven eyebrows and visible scarring left by the tattoo 'artist' I had previously used. She took the time to show me how to camouflage the colour and scarring and lightly pencil/powder over top. Shauna then suggested a course of action involving laser and saline removal to help undo the existing damage before starting in on microblading new brows. Today was my last touch up session, and I literally cried with joy when I saw the final results.

Shauna, I simply can not thank you enough!

"I was so grateful for Shauna, who calmly talked me through my panic during the healing process after I had my brows done elsewhere. She is such a pro who has been doing this so long, she knew exactly what I needed. She is clearly the best in the business!"

Tara MacLean Music

"Shauna is a pro, has excellent skills, good judgement, and is ethical to the point of insanity! She also has a big heart and a warm personality. I strongly recommend her for any cosmetic tattoo work. Her shop is clean, her practices are hygienic, and I have never had any complaints about her work (I have been going to her for years). I just did a refresh and it was painless and perfect, as usual."
