'Tattoo technology' used to solve skin issues

(WMC-TV) - Unlike the false promises of so many creams and lotions, a scar camouflage treatment holds up to what the name suggests.

The treatment might look like someone about to get tattooed.

Permanent Cosmetic Technician Jaudon Sunde worked her magic with paramedical scar camouflaging with Cindy, whose face was torn apart in a motorcycle accident.

"When they reconstructed my face they brought too much lip material up," said Cindy. "Every time I look in the mirror, it looks like I'm deformed."

The procedure, said to be pretty pain free, means defining the corner of her mouth with what will be a natural lip color when it is settled.

Sunde said it is tattoo technology, but advanced in that it is digital. It makes for 50 percent less trauma to the skin and 50 percent faster healing.

"We're implanting microinsertions of pigments into the dermal layer of skin ... It flows in as liquid and it heals as powder very quickly," she said.

The one who really puts scar camouflage to the test is burn victim Gary Hall – coming to Sunde for three years.

A house fire when he was 15 left him with a second degree and third degree burns from neck to waist.

"It looks a lot better than it did before. I would say 100 percent better," said Hall.

The camouflage did wonders for his entire neck not just in appearance but also loosing the tightened scar tissue to allow more movement. Although, that cause a kind of stretch mark which calls for a touch up once in a while.

Breast cancer survivors who have undergone reconstruction surgery often use scar camouflage.

Local make-up and tattoo artist Porter Whybrew with Eternal Beauty said she does a test spot first because scars can turn black on some patients.
