As scars heal, they go through several color changes. Scars, whether fully healed or in a stage of healing, may also be depressed or raised, shiny, or rough in appearance. Skin conditions such as vitiligo can also give you a “patchy” appearance that you may find frustrating and embarrassing. At Skintology MedSpa by Dr. Jennifer Walden, we offer vitiligo and scar camouflaging treatments to even out your skin tone and coloration and improve your appearance. Give us a call at (212) 832-2225 to set up your free consultation and learn more about vitiligo and scar camouflaging in New York, NY. Skin camouflaging is an excellent treatment for both men and women. This treatment can be used to treat scars in a variety of areas, including the hair line, the areola, and stretch marks, evening out your skin coloration to make the scars less visible. Skin camouflage is also a great cosmetic treatment for vitiligo. Vitiligo is a skin condition in which the skin loses pigment cells, resulting in discolored patches on your entire body, including the skin, hair, retina, and mucous membranes. Skin camouflaging evens out this pigmentation to improve your appearance.
In preparation to receive vitiligo or scar camouflaging, please do not apply makeup. Our vitiligo experts will apply a topical anesthetic cream to your skin to enhance your comfort. The pigment will then be implanted into your skin. You may feel slight discomfort during the implantation procedure.
After your procedure, avoid all ultra-violet exposure, especially from tanning booths or beds, for at least 10 days. You should also keep Alpha-hydroxy products and Retin-A away from treated areas.
