Brazilian Stretchmark Camouflage
Rodolpho Torres, of São Paulo, uses flesh-colored ink to hide stretch marks as well as circles under the eye. Anvisa (National Agency of Sanitary Surveillance) has approved his ink, and he personalizes each mixture to achieve a tone similar to that of the client’s skin. The ink blends into the stretch marks, giving them the color of the skin. Once the tattoos have healed, the client’s skin appears smoother, and after sixty days they can sunbathe without the risk of spots developing.
You might be a candidate if you meet the criteria below. Your scar should be:
- Healed and no longer pink or changing color: Your scar should be at least 9 to 12 months old with stable color. If it is red or pink or still changing color, the tissue may still be healing.
- Smooth and relatively flat: Camouflage tattooing cannot disguise or correct extreme changes in skin texture. If your scar or skin area is bumpy or raised, the process may not be effective.
- Without dark edges: Dark edges or borders around a scar indicate Post Inflammatory Hyper-pigmentation (PIHP) from the initial trauma or surgery. It is possible that the camouflage tattooing process may increase hyper-pigmentation and create a wider, darker border. (Consider Scar Lightening or Inkless Camouflage)
- NOT one of the following: Port Wine birthmarks; spider veins; freckles; age spots; under-eye circles; hyper-pigmentation; or unstable Vitiligo (not in remission). These can be improved with non-tattoo medical treatments such as lasers, sclerotherapy, or chemical peels. Please consult with a physician regarding the best course of treatment for these conditions.
Under Eye Camouflage
If you’re tired of constantly covering up your dark circles with makeup, dark circle camouflage may be a good treatment for you. Similar to other permanent makeup treatments, the pigment is applied into the skin using a cosmetic tool, which sits just below the layer of your skin to enhance the color of your under eye area. This is a tattoo which means exposure to daily life including sunlight and other conditions are perfectly fine after the procedure.
