MEDICAL TATTOO CAMOUFLAGE
Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage & Scar Camouflage is a paramedical aesthetic technique using a meticulous tattooing method with custom proprietary flesh tone pigments. This technique is intended to create a pigment illusion in order to disguise the area that is affected.
Tattooing has been considered an exceptional piece of art for many years now. With significant advancements in the cosmetic industry, the advantages of tattooing have gone increasingly popular to correct as well as conceal the appearance of scars, starch marks and even hair thinning.

Is it painful?
Depending on the area, a topical anesthetic may be applied to lightly numb the area in order to make stretch marks or scar camouflage tattoos comfortable.

What to expect before and after treatment
Bring a pillow and loose comfortable clothing! Consultation and consent forms will be reviewed and established during your consultation. The area will be evaluated to determine if you’re a candidate. As a client, we will assess your skin tone and perform a custom pigment formula to match. Medical pigment camouflaging is an unpredictable process; therefore, this color spot test is crucial. As with cosmetic tattooing and permanent makeup, the final healed color may be different from when the pigment was initially applied. The area treated will be red, raised, and inflamed immediately after the procedure and may take a few days to subside but this is normal and to be expected. Minor itchiness can be relieved by rubbing aquaphor on the area.
Clean the area where the stretch mark or scar camouflage tattoo is made with a natural cleanser such as Dr. Bronner’s and keep it protected with Aquaphor spray/ointment. We will wrap the area after the procedure, it is important to remove the wrap and keep the area open to air after 2 hours. Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the area. Avoid using harsh soaps, creams, fragrances and lotions. Avoid active sun exposure, excessive sweating, swimming, massage for the best outcome. Complete aftercare instructions will be provided during your visit.
Whether it is stretch marks, scar camouflage tattoos, or scar removal, we at Manhattan Skin and Laser Center ensure that the procedures are safe and precise. We offer personalized aftercare instructions on how to clean the tattoo, guidelines for bathing, skincare and most importantly use of prescribed topical ointments.
