Camouflaging stretch marks can help increase confidence and help you live your life unhindered.

stretch mark camouflage

A stretch mark is a type of scar that occurs when the skin stretches rapidly. This abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin to rupture which in turn creates a stretch mark.

We can minimize the appearance of stretch marks through a couple different techniques. One of these techniques uses ink to blend them in with the surrounding skin. The other technique is an inkiness method that encourages your body to blur the stretch mark on its own. Not all stretch marks are candidates for treatment.

are you a good candidate for camouflage?

What happens when I tan?

With ink camouflage, your camouflaged area will not tan with the rest of your skin. However, the area will essentially still be camouflaged since the contrast between your tanned skin and the camouflaged area won’t be as noticeable as your tanned skin and the scar/stretch marks without camouflage. Some clients opt for the inkless method of camouflage as they will tan with the rest of your skin.

Can you camouflage my stretch marks while I have a tan?

With ink – No. I need to color match to your natural skin tone
Inkiness – I can work while you have a tan or with your natural skin tone.

What are my stretch marks like immediately after?

Stretch marks are usually red, tender and a bit swollen immediately following your session. However, there is little to no down time and the redness and swelling are usually gone within the first 3 days.

How long will my results last?

Following aftercare, sun exposure, age, and individual skin characteristics all affect the longevity of your results, however, most can expect 4-6 years before considering a touch up.

Does this treatment remove my stretch marks?

No! There is no way to completely remove stretch marks (or scars). These treatment methods only minimize their appearance.
