STRETCHMARK CAMOUFLAGE TATTOO

WHAT IS STRETCHMARK CAMOUFLAGE?

Inkless stretch mark camouflage is a technique used to conceal the appearance of stretch marks without using traditional tattoo ink. Instead of using ink, this method involves using specialized equipment to stimulate the skin's natural healing process and encourage the production of collagen and pigment. This process helps to blend the color of the stretch marks with the surrounding skin, making them less noticeable. Unlike traditional tattoos, inkless camouflage doesn't involve injecting pigment into the skin, which can lead to a more natural and subtle result. It's a non-invasive option for individuals who wish to reduce the visibility of their stretch marks.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED? 

To carefully achieve the most natural resultmultiple sessions are required to achieve desired results, spaced 6-12 weeks apart. The number of sessions needed varies from client to client and depends on many factors. The location of the tattoo, age, pigment used, skin quality, depth, color and size will all make a difference in the number of sessions needed. Black ink will take longer to remove. 

 

Clients should be realistic with their expectations and understand that although we can lighten a tattoo, complete erasing may be possible, but difficult and time-consuming to achieve. 

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE?

An ideal candidate for inkless stretch mark camouflage is someone who has noticeable stretch marks and is looking to improve their appearance without undergoing traditional tattooing. This technique is generally suitable for individuals with stretch marks that are healed for at least one year and are lighter in color compared to their natural skin tone. Stretchmarks are the most delicate skin due to trauma creating a tear in the dermis, or lower level of the skin. Conservate measures are required to not disrupt the tear in the skin any further but rather recreate the dermal injury by needling with custom solutions that heal the striations in a healthier way. It's important for candidates to have realistic expectations about the results, as complete removal of stretch marks is not guaranteed.

on the rare occasion, depending on the scope of work necessary to diminish the contrast between the skin and stretchmarks a light dilution of pigment may be added in conjunction to treatment solutions to enhance results. this is not an approach used in any initial session with the exception of test spots.

SALINE/ Solution TATTOO LIGHTENING VS LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Laser tattoo removal is generally effective on many tattoo pigments, but there are certain pigments that can be resistant to laser treatment, including titanium dioxide-based pigments. Titanium dioxide is a common white pigment used in various applications, including tattoo ink.

 

The reason laser removal may not work well on tattoos with titanium dioxide pigments is because titanium dioxide reflects laser light rather than absorbing it. Laser treatments work by delivering high-intensity light energy to target and break down the tattoo pigments. If the pigment reflects the light instead of absorbing it, the laser's energy is not effectively absorbed by the pigment, making the removal process less effective.

 

Additionally, some titanium dioxide-based pigments may be more resistant to the heat generated by the laser, which can prevent the pigments from breaking down into smaller particles that can be cleared away by the body's immune system.

 

In these cases, alternative methods such as surgical excision or other specialized treatments may be considered to address tattoos with titanium dioxide pigments. It's important to consult with a qualified dermatologist or tattoo removal specialist to determine the best course of action based on the specific tattoo and pigment involved.

Since scabbing of the skin is crucial to the lifting of pigment, it is very important to allow the body’s natural process to take place to achieve optimal results. The treated area must remain dry for the following few days in order to scab. During this healing period your skin will appear dry and will create scabs. These scab formations must not be touched and picked at, but rather be left alone to flake off by themselves.
