Permanent Medical Tattoo for Hypopigmented Scars Upper Back?

I have a lot of white scars on upper back from post inflammatory scars (due to excoriations) I would like to blend in a natural color on the white scars and wondering if medical tattoos in the white area would work?

Yes. This is a great option. You should consult with 3-4 permanent makeup specialists and evaluate photos of their work. An experienced permanent makeup specialist will be able to match your natural skin tone with the scar tissue and help camouflage the hypopigmented scar tissue. I hope this information is helpful.

I skilled permanent medical tattoo specialist can effectively pigment the skin of these scars and help blend them in with the surroudning skin tone.
