PARAMEDICAL TATTOO FAQ

What is Scar and Stretch mark camouflage tattooing?

Scar and Stretch mark Camouflage tattooing is a form of paramedical tattooing. We use flesh-coloured tattoo ink that matches the scars or stretch marks of your body and blends in with the surrounding skin. A custom-made ink colour is created for each client on the day of the appointment.

Which areas can benefit from paramedical tattooing?

Most popular areas for Scar and Stretch Mark Camouflage to treat are: Tummy tuck, Surgical Scars, breast Augmentation, stretch marks, Self Harm, C-section, burns, BBL scars, Lipo scars, etc.

Popular areas for Inkless Scar and Stretch Sark Revision to treat are: Breasts, Abdomen, Hips, Thighs, Back, Arms, Glutes, Knees, etc.

What is Inkless Scar and Stretch mark revision?

This Inkless Method uses a serum of mixed vitamins and organic oils that help regenerate collagen + elastin within the scars or stretch marks and promotes normalization, smoothening and lightening of scars/stretch marks. All help improve the appearance of scars/stretch marks. The Inkless Method is often used before the Camouflage procedure, to flatten and soften the texture of the skin.

What should I expect after my paramedical tattooing?

You will experience redness and swelling immediately after the procedure for the first 2-3 days. Then the redness will subside and the treated area(s) will go through a variety of shades (from dark to light) until skin heals which takes between 6-8 weeks. As the area heals it is natural to sense some itching and see some flaking or light scabbing. Please follow the post care instruction provided by Eye The Brows using only the products recommended. Remember, your skin has been purposely wounded, and it must be treated carefully and kept clean at all times. Not following the post care instructions will compromise your results and or can result in an infection.

This treatment will improve the appearance, texture and colour tone of your scars and stretch marks. By improving the colour tone, it will decrease the contrast against the surrounding skin making scars/stretch marks less visible.

How old do Scars and Stretch marks need to be in order to treat?

At least 1 year old, completely healed, white/silvery colour, (lighter than your skin tone) and no longer have any pink, red or purple colour.

Does it hurt?

The pain will vary from client to client; however, most clients describe it as “not painful at all” or just a vibrating sensation. If you had a body tattoo done before, it is less painful than a regular tattoo. If you have a very low pain tolerance, we can possibly pre numb the area(s) prior to the procedure. 

How many sessions will I need?

It usually takes between 2-4 sessions with subsequent sessions as necessary or your own personal preference.

What should I wear on my day of treatment?

Please wear loose, comfortable clothes.

Can I get paramedical tattooing if I am tanned?

Camouflage Scar and Stretch Mark Revision: It’s important that you are not tanned as the procedure matches your skin tone. 

Inkless Scar and Stretch Mark Revision: It won’t affect the results if you get tanned. We don’t use coloured ink but use colourless serum of mixed vitamins and organic oils.

How long will the results last?

On an average camouflage can last between 3-5 years, or more also depending on your skin and subsequent personal care. You may or may not need a touch-up after 3-5 years. Revision treatment is permanent once treated.

What happens when I tan after I get camouflage tattooing?

Scars and Stretch marks do not tan.  Your skin will tan naturally but your scars and stretch marks that were camouflaged will remain the same colour as they were when camouflaged. In this case, the contrast between tanned skin and the scars and stretch marks that were treated will be less noticeable compared to what they would have been pre-treatment since they were much lighter.

Who is not a good candidate for paramedical tattooing?

  • If you are Pregnant or Breastfeeding
  • Anyone with Diabetes
  • Anyone undergoing Chemotherapy or Radiation
  • Anyone with an Active Infection of any type (Viral, Fungal, Bacterial)
  • Anyone on Accutane and or Retinol (must be off of it for at least 12 months)
  • Anyone taking Blood thinners (require a doctor’s approval)
  • Anyone with Scleroderma, prone to Keloid or Hyperpigmentation
  • Anyone with Active Skin Cancer on the treatment area
  • Those with HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis or Hives or any other transmittable blood conditions.

Do I need downtime after the treatment?

There is no downtime at all. You can return to work immediately.
