It’s important to be totally honest when discussing stretch marks. There have been some incredible advancements in treating these streaks and irregular lines on the skin. Certain procedures and topical treatments can yield significant fading, but unfortunately, total stretch marks removal is not usually possible. That is why the new trend of medical camouflage is making headlines. It’s the first real method of tattooing different colored flesh-tone pigments to disguise or camouflage the area that is missing pigment or color. Clients are raving about the results of these invisible tattoos, and best of all, there is no surgery or downtime involved.
Stretch Mark Origins
Most women only believe that stretch marks develop during pregnancy when the belly skin is stretched to accommodate the growing fetus. These streaks can also appear on your buttocks, thighs, hips, breasts, and other areas of the body. Stretch marks can also show up when you are obese, rapidly losing or gaining weight, going through puberty or using corticosteroid medication.
Not every streak looks the same. These noticeable marks can come in shades of pink, red, black, blue or purple. They slowly fade to silver or white over time. Stretch marks are normal, and almost everyone has to deal with them at some point.
Great Disappearing Act
A skilled and experienced cosmetic tattoo artist can create a tattoo that conceals your stretch marks, which is the next best thing to stretch marks removal. It’s an amazing technique that actually results in the “disappearance” of your streaks. The tattoo itself becomes undetectable to the eye, and everything is perfectly blended.
The artistic technique can involve tattoo pointillism. This procedure creates thousands of tiny dots to form an image that looks solid from a distance. The camouflage is comprised of pigments in a range of tones to match your skin.
A Brazilian tattoo artist invented the medical camouflage trend a few years ago, and it presents another great option for those challenged with these marks. Women who undergo medial camouflage are happy with the concept of using skin-colored ink to soften their stretch marks and cleverly hide them.
It usually takes just one treatment session to achieve the results. Then, you can return to your normal daily schedule. It is non-invasive and simple and can instantly improve your self-confidence.
If you are bothered by stretch marks, you are certainly not alone. Medical camouflage has become a hot trend because it is quick, safe and offers another way to make these streaks disappear.
