Stretch mark camouflage is a PMU technique where we match the pigments to your skin tone and with the usage of a digital device we implement pigments into the skin. We cover the discoloration of stretch marks and scars with soft pigmentation so they are less visible.
Treatment can be done on all skin colors. However, we must be careful with darker skin tones as they are prone to hyperpigmentation.
30-60% improvement can be seen in just ONE SESSION, but we recommend from 2 to 4 treatments for the best results.
Can All Stretch Marks Be Camouflaged?
Only completely healed stretch marks that have faded into a shade noticeably lighter than your skin tone can be camouflaged. If your stretch marks are red or purplish, this means that they are relatively newly formed and as such, are more challenging to cover up.
Regardless of color, the stretch marks have to be healed.
In order to achieve the most natural-looking result, tattooing should be done on a light, flat surface, so stretch marks or scarring that is less than 2 years old probably won’t be a good candidate.
Does Stretch Mark Tattoo Camouflage Hurt?
Getting a stretch mark camouflage tattoo is very similar to getting a traditional ink tattoo when it comes to that scratching sensation. It doesn’t necessarily fall in the painful category, but it can be a bit uncomfortable.
Unfortunately, numbing creams are usually not used during stretch mark camouflage treatments since the treated area tends to be quite wide, plus they can interfere with the skin texture resulting in unevenness.
Stretch mark camouflage can be a life-changing procedure for women whose bodies have changed through pregnancy and weight gain, giving them more confidence on a daily basis and helping them fall back in love with their skin.
Choosing an experienced artist is essential to get the most natural-looking result, especially when opting for procedures like stretch mark tattoos and Brazilian stretch mark camouflage since these treatments imply injecting colored pigments into the skin.
