Scar Camouflage Treatment

The scar camouflage treatment uses highly pigmented products, that when applied correctly are waterproof, to mask the appearance of scarring. Camouflage is a great option for scars that are presenting with redness or pigmentation and whilst this is not a permeant option it is still highly effective during everyday life or as an interim solution whilst undergoing scar treatments. 

Is the scar camouflage treatment permanent?

Scar camouflage is not a permanent option, whilst these creams are durable they will need to be applied daily. 


Is camouflage for scarring waterproof?

When applied correctly there are a number of brands we use that are water resistant.  


Can I use the scar camouflage treatment whilst undergoing other procedures?

Yes, as long as you are not applying the scar camouflage over open wounds (eg: directly after scar revision etc) or freshly lasered skin you can use camouflage in between appointments to mask the scarring.


Are skin camouflage techniques only used for scars caused by injury?

No, skin camouflage techniques may help patients with various conditions; from injury scarring, to vitiligo, rosacea, melasma scarring and many more.

"I was treated by Mr Jorge Leon-Villapalos last year. I have honestly never received such good care, Mr Leon-Villapalos is very caring and was very sensitive about my issue. He explained everything in detail. The Scar Clinic booking team also made the whole process easy and hassle free. I would 100% recommend this practice, top notch service!"

"Great staff, and knowledge. I called the clinic after I had a traumatic experience elsewhere which left me with 2nd-degree burns. Very, very pleased with the results of the burn, it disappeared and left no scarring with the dressing and treatment Mr Goutos used. My experience as a whole has been more than pleasant and I would recommend both the clinic and Mr Goutos to all!"

"My experience has been absolutely wonderful - many thanks to Mr Leon-Villapalos and team. He’s been extremely patient in taking time to explain things in full, prompt in answering all the questions I had throughout my recovery. Excellent communicator and very kind indeed. Scrub nurses were lovely, and in general I can’t fault my experience with you at all."

"Everything and everyone - from environment to all staff (reception, nurses, and of course Dr. Firas who is a great doctor and a very charming and warm person who makes patients feel at ease even when their situation isn’t the lightest). Overall, very good experience!"

"The surgeon answered all of my concerns and I felt confident to undergo the procedure and came out feeling confident I received very good care. The staff and nurses gave me personal attention and were quite courteous, they readily gave me any information that I needed. They were particular in helping me go through all the steps I needed in preparation for the procedure. "

"Excellent experience through and through. Friendly staff and extended team. Mr Leon-Villapalos is an exceptional communicator and made me feel at ease throughout both of my procedures with him."

"I have been coming to the Clinic for over a year now and the experience has always been extremely professional and courteous. Having major surgery can be a daunting process but the clinic has at all times provided excellent care across all aspects."
