Stretch Mark Tattoo Camouflage
Trained by world famous Brazilian Stretch Mark Tattoo Artist, Rodolpho Torres, Lisa Klein is excited to bring the art to Southern California. If you have stretch marks or scars that are over 2 years old and light in color, a Stretch Mark Camouflage Tattoo may be a helpful solution.
First, a topical numbing cream is applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Second, A custom pigment color is blended and matched to your skin.
Then, using a tattoo method, the pigment is tattoed into the stretch mark or scar area. This essentially creates the illusion that the stretch mark has blended in with the surrounding skin.
As a side benefit, your stretch marks will build a little collagen while healing. However, they will likely remain as deep as they were before the procedure. Only the color variation will change. Although clients notice a difference after 1 procedure, 2-3 procedures are required for the most effective results. You should schedule your procedures 6-8 weeks apart. Although entirely dependent on your skin, average results can last up to 15 years.
After care is vital with this procedure. You must keep a cold compress on the area for 72 hours after the procedure. This will speed up the healing process by weeks.
*The treatment area should not be tan at the time of procedure. Healing time for this procedure takes a long time...and multiple procedures may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Therefore, this procedure should not be done if you have a bikini trip, photo shoot, etc... in the near future.
