Tired of walking around with stretch marks and unflattering scars?
Stretch marks (striae) are the result of sudden or drastic stretching of the skin as a possible consequence of hormonal changes like: puberty, pregnancy, menopausal hormone therapy (MHT), bodybuilding, among others. The fast expansion of the tissue leads to the tearing of the dermis which ultimately results in the formation of scar tissue commonly known as stretch marks.
Stretch Mark/Scar Camouflage is a noninvasive procedure done by tattooing the scars or stretch marks to blend in with the surrounding skin. The striae are camouflaged by using different color flesh tone pigments, its purpose is to disguise the area that is missing pigment or color.

Unfortunately, we do live in a society that frequently stigmatizes anything deemed ‘different’. This means that people who live with noticeable differences also commonly live with prejudice, intrusive stares, inappropriate questioning, name-calling and even sometimes physical abuse. It is for this reason that many choose to hide their conditions with skin camouflage.
People choose to have skin camouflage because it enables them to:
- Avoid extra attention
- No longer feel defined by their altered image
- Blend into the crowd when they want to
- Feel more confident
Skin camouflage offers a simple solution to complex problems – its role immediately after diagnosis or at a later date can help clients regain their confidence and self-esteem and allow them to return to normal life.
A stretch mark is a tear in the skin caused by breaking down collagen fibers. They are caused by genetics, dryness, lack of hydration and moisturization.
Anyone with striations of any size that look white and exaggerates the contrast with their skin color qualifies for the procedure.
A consultation is required before we can treat you to evaluate the area.
This treatment can be done in one session. However, some cases may need a touch-up. The procedure can last anywhere from 45 minutes on, this all depends on the size of the area you would like to work on.
