What is stretch mark camouflaging?
Many women end up with stretch marks after pregnancy which can lower their self-esteem. Stretch mark camouflage Chicago procedure is a form of micropigmentation whereby pigments are inserted into the layers of skin to correct the color in and around your stretch marks. Specialists will color match and mix pigments to match your natural skin color and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
How does the procedure work?
Your Chicago Om Spa specialist will mix skin-tone inks to match your skin color. A small test patch will be performed to make sure the color match is correct. During your first session, a shading technique is used with the selected inks and is applied to the skin just like a regular tattoo.
What if my stretch marks formed recently?
Om Spa specialists recommend this procedure for scars that are at least two years old for a couple of reasons. Stretch marks that are raised or red are more sensitive to work with, and also do not reflect the true color of your skin. As your stretch marks get older, they get closer to your natural skin color and are easier to match successfully.
