STRETCH MARK CAMOUFLAGE
Stretch marks (striae) are the result of sudden or drastic stretching of the skin as a possible consequence of hormonal changes like: puberty, pregnancy, menopausal hormone therapy (MHT), bodybuilding, among others; the fast expansion of the tissue leads to the tearing of the dermis which ultimately results in the formation of scar tissue. Stretch marks have been studied over the years and we know that they develop as a repair mechanism to address the damaged tissue. Initially, stretch marks start as a reddish/purple, itchy and even sometimes painful lesion. Over time, they tend to lose pigmentation (due to the tissue inability to function properly) and they turn into hypo-pigmented lesions known as “striae alba”. The use of topical agents, natural remedies and exfoliating treatments have been tested over the years and have not shown significant evidence to be effective in any way. Certain laser resurfacing frequencies, along with mechanical induction treatments like micro-needling has also been clinically studied and have been shown to provide improvement but not a significant enough reduction or even represent a permanent solution.
“Camouflage” is the only scar revision protocol that provides permanent, long-lasting, visible results in as little as 2 weeks after only 1-3 sessions; no downtime and minimal to no discomfort are to be expected. The Beauty Expert has invested time and research in developing a distinctive guide for pigment formulation that allows us to create a unique tone based on the patient’s complexion. The pigment is loaded into a precise “electronic infusing device” that allows the clinician to adjust settings like needle depth, speed and pigment release. This pigment is then deposited into the epidermis and dermis to successfully correct the desired lesion. Unlike traditional indelible or semi-permanent ink, our unique pigment formulation is free of any parabens, fragrances, alcohol or allergens; all of the factors mentioned above being harsh ingredients that could potentially damage the skin over time. Stretch marks do not pose any health risks but are an understandable daily struggle for women who have undergone the changes mentioned prior, and who are wanting to accept and celebrate their bodies.
