BEST TREATMENT FOR STRETCHMARKS, & SCARS
What is Stretchmark & Scar Concealment (A.K.A Brazilian Camouflage)
A process refined from a Brazilian technique of permanently concealing stretch marks, scars and other skin related imperfections. The process is effective where it be naturally occurring, from injuries or surgery.
Our camouflage procedure differs greatly from micro-pigmentation as it is not affected by the process of cellular renewal. The pigments are not susceptible to fading or discoloration over time due to sun exposure or the bodies natural absorption.
Our camouflage technique takes place directly in the dermis where the skin colour is stable and does not change over time. This unique method combines precise colour formulation to perfectly match many different skin complexions for a concealed and permanent solution.

Brazilian Camouflage: Starting at $2000tt
The total cost of the procedure varies greatly as it is dependent upon the location and severity of the stretch marks or scar. Prices range from $350-$2,000+/per area. We require an initial consultation (in-person or virtual). The initial consultation is complementary for all of our clients. The final quote will be determined based on the consultation on a case by case basis.
Brazilian Scar camouflage is a form of paramedical tattooing specialized to disguise scars caused by stretch marks, burns, surgeries, or injuries, hyperpigmentation and other skin imperfections.
The Scar Camouflage procedure consists of tattooing over the affected areas with a personalized blend of pigments similar to the skin tone of the patient. This procedure allows the affected areas to blend into the surrounding skin. This results in complete camouflage of the targeted imperfection. Research has concluded that most clients are most interested in improving the tone of their skin rather than the texture. Currently there is no procedure that cures scars or stretch marks. This gives our technique prominence in the beauty industry by providing the best results when it comes to an aesthetic solution for contrast concerns.
This treatment does not change the texture of the skin, much less the color. The natural color of the skin is taken as a reference so that the observed results are completely natural.
Who is a Good Candidate?
A good candidate for Brazilian camouflage for stretch marks and scars are people with Stretch Marks and scars older than 2 years and have to be lighter than your skin color.
Types of Stretchmarks
The Red/Purple stretchmarks- these are the most recent stretch marks, which are in the process of inflammation meaning that the tissue was not totally destroyed and there is still blood circulating on the site. You may experience an itch. With time, the lines will gradually lose the tone to become whitish, sometimes with pearly aspect, called violet. (Note this type of Stretch marks can’t be treated with Camouflage until it heals and turns white) White (albas striae) shallow and narrow: Usually there is no difference in the texture of the skin and have little sensitivity to touch. White (albas) deep and wide striations: perceptible to the touch, as linear depressions, the skin is thinner, soft and flaccid, normally violaceous (of violet color), because it is possible to see intact tissues behind the stretchmark.
Scar Camouflage Tattoo vs Micropigmentation:
There are fundamental differences between a Scar Camouflage Tattoo and a Micropigmentation procedure. The most notable difference is where the treatment takes place, during a camouflage tattoo procedure a uniquely matched, insoluble pigment is deposited into the dermis where the colour remains stable and is protected from absorption, fading, and the effects of the sun. The micropigmentation process takes place in the epidermis where the pigments over time will fade due to the body's natural cellular renewal process. Fading or colour change will also occur due to sun exposure and the proximity of the inks to the surface of the skin. The pigments used for Scar Camouflage Tattoos differ from those used in Micropigmentation, as tattoo inks are insoluble, unlike their soluble counterparts used in the Micropigmentation process, which in time will be absorbed by the body.
How many sessions will I need?
The sessions are very safe and are designed to work based on your natural skin tone. The procedure is performed in a single session, however, in some cases, after 60 days, a small refinement session is required.
The advantages of the treatment are many:

You will need to wait approximately 40 days until natural skin tone has returned.

No, the procedure should only be performed on stabilized skin that is beyond the final stages of cicatrization (the process of wound healing to produce scar tissue). In most cases, the qualified affected areas will appear lighter in tone to the surrounding skin.

The elastin fibers in the dermis layer are responsible for making the skin elastic and firm. These fibers typically produce adequate quantities of the major nutrient collagen.
When the skin becomes overstretched, the dermis layer which lies between the epidermis and hypodermis, gets torn. This action disrupts the production of collagen, causing the skin to stretch beyond its limits. The lack of collagen compounds the issue by makes it so the skin is unable to return to its original position, causing stretch marks appear on the surface of the skin.

LED Light Therapy
LED: Light Emitting Diode, therapy was originally developed by NASA to help Navy Seals recover from their wounds and regenerate muscle. However, it wasn’t long before researchers discovered its unique therapeutic benefits in the world of cosmetic skincare—namely that certain frequencies of light reduce fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen production, and increase new tissue growth. We leave the serum on for an extra 20 minutes under the LED light. The light will help with the absorption of the product and the production of collagen.
