Stretch Marks & Scar Camouflage Tattooing

Repigmentation or as commercially known as “Brazilian Stretch mark Camouflage”  is a system very much similar to tattooing, which through the use of special ink mixing formulas and careful application, will repigment your stretchmarks, scars, vitiligo and hyper-pigmentation exactly the same color of the surrounding skin. Blending the affected area permanently and seamlessly to the rest of your body’s skin colour.

What Skin Conditions Can Be Tattooed?

Stretch marks

This is an incredibly common complaint yet there is no treatment or procedure available to address stretch marks until now. Stretch marks are indented streaks that often appear on the abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks and thighs, and are particularly common in pregnant women because of the rapid skin stretching. The Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage – or repigmentation – will effectively reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Vitiligo

With no known cure, vitiligo is a lifelong problem for many people, from those experiencing slight vitiligo through to more serious cases. This is a condition whereby the skin loses its pigment cells (melanocytes), resulting in discoloured patches across the body. Using Brazilian Scar Camouflage Tattooing, certain cases of vitiligo can be addressed, giving the individual the impression of a more even skin tone.

Hyperpigmentation

This is another common and often harmless skin condition whereby pigmentation in certain areas becomes darker because of an excess supply of melanin. Hyperpigmentation can affect anyone, and comes in a variety of forms:

  • In elderly people, ‘age’ or ‘liver’ spots that appear are a form of hyperpigmentation;
  • When they’re a result of sun damage, they’re referred to as solar lentigo;
  • Hormonal changes can result in melasma or chloasma spots of darkened areas;
  • Pregnant women can have darkened skin on the abdomen or face known as the ‘mask of pregnancy’.

Certain cases of hyperpigmentation can be addressed through Brazilian Scar Camouflage Tattooing.

Scars

Although cosmetic surgery can assist with the reduction of scars, not all scars can be effectively concealed with this method. It is also a more high-risk and costlier undertaking than Brazilian stretch mark & scar camouflage tattooing. Some of the scars that have been effectively treated include:

  • Cosmetic surgery scars such as facelifts and tummy tucks;
  • General surgery scars including C-section;
  • Gender reassignment surgery scars;
  • Breast surgery scars;
  • Accident or injury scars; and
  • Cleft lip scars.
