Two Types of Stretch Mark Camouflage

Stretch Mark Scar Camouflage:

This procedure utilizes a tattoo machine and carefully blended inks. The procedure effectively minimizes the look of stretch marks by blending the color to your undamaged skin tone.

Inkless Stretch Mark Serum Treatment:

With stretch mark serum treatment, your paramedical tattoo artist will use their rotary tattoo machine to lightly needle your stretch marks and then apply a cutting-edge stem cell serum, used for skin rejuvenation and tissue regeneration. This is an inkless method that helps to create a production of melanin, naturally filling in the stretch marks with your body’s own color.  The serum aids in restructuring and healing, smoothing out the stretch marks and reducing their appearance.
