What is a Mastectomy?

A mastectomy is a surgical procedure for treating breast cancer. The surgeon will remove tissue from one or both breasts to stop the spread of cancer cells. 

Once the incision heals, a mastectomy usually results in scarring. Most mastectomy scars heal in a horizontal or diagonal line across the chest. According to Medical News Today, "mastectomy scars can take months or several years to fade but never disappear entirely."


How to Cover a Mastectomy Scar with Makeup

Once the scar has fully healed there are ways to cover the appearance of a scar with makeup. Choose products like Oxygenetix that are clean and free from cancer causing ingredients such as parabens, phthalates, heavy metals, and talc. 

Dermatologists recommend Oxygenetix cosmetics to their patients to help heal and conceal compromised skin. Used immediately after ablative procedures such as laser and microneedling, Oxygenetix has been proven to be safe and effective. We are dedicated to using ingredients that help the skin heal while providing the coverage you desire.

For the most coverage Oxygenetix Oxygenating Concealer is the best choice. With very little product you can achieve full coverage. The shade you choose should match your skintone, both the undertone (blue or yellow based) and the lightness or darkness. Use our Shade Finder to find your perfect shade in minutes! Apply the concealer by lightly tapping product onto your scar with a clean makeup brush or sponge. For additional coverage wait about 60 seconds for it to set before applying more concealer on top. 

You can also use Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation to cover your scars, you just may need to apply more layers for full coverage as it has less pigment than Oxygenetix Concealer. Both Oxygenetix Foundation and Concealer are breathable and made with oxygen promoting Ceravitae® which helps your skin cells work more quickly to heal. 

Oxygenetix Foundation and Concealer are transfer and sweat resistant, meaning they will stay on until you wash them off!
