Stretch Mark Camouflage
What are Stretch Marks?
Think of your skin as a basket weave. As we literally stretch out, the skin pulls that weave apart, and we are left with what feels and looks like an indentation in our skin. A stretch mark happens because there is a disruption in the skin’s natural pattern. In other words, the basket weave has an irregularity and is no longer smooth. If you’ve ever worn a bikini to the beach, you know that bright sunlight highlights exactly where your stretch marks are and unfortunately, how many you have.
Why do I have them?
Think it’s just you? Not true. An estimated 80% of women have stretch marks, and they can be a result of several things, such as the abdomen stretching during pregnancy, a growth spurt during puberty (upward or out), weight gain, and even building muscle too fast. In other words, almost everyone can and will get them. Models, teens, moms, and even men. Yes, fellas suffer from these beloved ‘love lines’ as well. Studies have even shown they can be hereditary!

What is Scar Revision?
Scar revision or scar treatment is a form of paramedical tattoo that can reduce the appearance of scars by adding pigments (colors) to the skin. When examined more closely, normal skin is a mix of skin tones, not uniform in color. At Skin ATL, we use a special color blending technique that attempts to capture the skin’s natural color patterns. This individualized tattoo process adds pigments matched specifically to your skin tone, allowing the scar to blend with the surrounding skin. This results in an overall reduction of the scar’s appearance.
What are the most common areas treated?
The most common areas treated with scar revision are surgical scars on the abdomen (tummy tuck or C-section) and breast ( breast augmentation, breast reduction, or mastectomy/lumpectomy). Smaller but often less easily hidden scars from facelifts and liposuction are also common areas of treatment. Scars that have left large areas without hair, such as those as a result of major surgery, are typically not a good option for scar treatment. This is because hair color changes over time and may require periodic and more frequent re-pigmentation, which may not be an option.
How many treatments are required?
It is important to recognize that most scars are typically permanent and will rarely become completely invisible. Each scar is different in size, shape, color, location on the body, as well as many other factors that affect its appearance. Some scars may require only a single treatment, but keep in mind that scar tissue is compromised tissue, and often requires multiple treatments for optimal effects. Results are generally cumulative and may take 30-45 days to fully develop.
Although our treatments can reduce the scar’s appearance, prospective clients should understand the limits to the procedure as well as proper expectations about the process. The flesh tone pigments we use are different from harsh colored body tattoos and may fade over time. They may also require touch-up services in order to maintain their appearance.
