Medical camouflage pigmentation restores the color of natural occurring skin. This service focuses on healed tissues, in treating and adapting unnatural skin colors due to scarring from accidents, surgical operations, and skin disorders to recreate the look of healthy, normal skin. Through Haute Makeup®’s medi-camouflage pigmentation services, we can reduce the visibility and correct the color of scars, and help clients who suffer from vitiligo and hypopigmentation.
The procedure is difficult to do because the technician is pigmenting over skin that has been burned, cut, or damaged beyond natural skin repair (therefore the creation of the scar or other skin ailment). The technician requires dexterity and knowledge of skin.
With Haute Makeup®, we use a sterile, acupuncture-thin, single-use needle. Focusing on depositing color into the epidermis, our needle does not penetrate into the dermal layers, where blood is located. This is why this treatment does not hit blood, is less painful, and has quick downtime.
This form of semi-permanent makeup lasts around 1 to 2 years, depending on the individual’s skin type, metabolism, and external factors such as environment and sunlight exposure. The frequency and amount of skin shed affects the longevity of the semi-permanent makeup.

Before receiving any type of medical camouflage pigmentation, it is important to provide accurate medical history to the technician to ensure that medical pigmentation is right for you and to research thoroughly before the treatments.
