A noticeable scar, annoying stretch marks or white spots you’d like to get rid of? Then by now you have probably discovered that, unfortunately, these are difficult to treat. Although there is also good news: just because we can’t change much about the structure doesn’t mean we can’t do anything more. The original scar is still there, but by locally coloring the skin with medical pigments, it is much less noticeable.
The treatment itself is very simple: using pigmentation techniques, we can locally color the skin to camouflage scars. These can be scars after surgery or accidents, as well as white spots from sun damage or even stretch marks. This can be done for any skin tone or type, although it is best to come at a time when your skin is not too tanned by the sun. After all, pigment does not color with it. Just know: scar tissue is unpredictable. It is difficult to say how smoothly the skin will absorb the pigment, but in most cases several sessions are needed to blur the scar nicely.
Wondering what we can do for you? Then make an appointment now for a no-obligation (and free) intake. Everyone and every scar is different. This initial consultation is essential to assess whether the scar qualifies, whether it will absorb the color optimally and whether we can achieve the desired result.

This is only temporary, and can be improved by rubbing the skin with wound-healing ointment for a week afterwards.
