SKIN NEEDLING / MCA SCAR RELAXATION
MCA otherwise known as Multitrepannic Collagen Actuation or scar relaxation is a non pigmented camouflage treatment similar to skin needling assisting individuals in healing disfigurement after skin trauma and scarring from accident, injury, surgery or genetically.
MCA has a plumping effect reducing the depth of pitted, depressed and shallow scarring creating a more even epidermal surface. Hypertropic scars can be flattened. Contracted scar tissue formed from burns or accidents causing limited mobility and flexibility can be relaxed and broken down. Hypopigmented areas can often be stimulated for a natural recolouration in the skin. In certain cases a pigmented scar camouflage method would then be used to blend hyperpigmented areas to your natural skin tone as a second stage to this procedure.
This laser works by reorganising collagen fibres within the scar tissue, giving it a smoother appearance. Also, the laser drills very fine columns into the skin, and it is possible to apply cortisone topically immediately after laser to help reduce the activity in the scar and flatten it breaking down the scar tissue and allowing for a smoother surface and texture where colour pigment can then be implanted (tattooed) smooth and consistently to conceal your scars .
Scar Camouflage Tattoo has a much better result once scar tissue has been broken down and the skin has a softer texture.
