DOES THIS TREATMENT REMOVE STRETCH MARKS?

Other than a tummy tuck, or the literal removal of skin, there is no proven way to remove stretch marks. The Stretch Mark Camouflage Tattoo only helps to conceal and diminish the appearance of stretch marks so that they are less perceptible to the naked eye. Think of it as having a permanent filter, taking away the white contrast of your scars.

CAN I GET THE TREATMENT WHILE PREGNANT OR BREAST-FEEDING?

Congratulations on your pregnancy, but unfortunately, we are unable to treat women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

 We look forward to treating you once your little one is weaned and your scars have been fully healed (usually within two years).

IS THE TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?

Generally, yes! However, there are a small number of people who the treatment would not be suitable for. Your stretch marks and scars need to be at least two years old, lighter than your skin tone and completely healed. Booking a virtual consultation can help determine if you’re a candidate for this procedure and is required for all clients.

CAN I GET TATTOOED IF MY SKIN IS ALREADY TANNED?

We prefer to match only your natural skin tone, and require that our clients postpone their session until their tan has faded. This ensures that we are able to custom blend an ink color that will look most natural whether you’re tanned or not.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I TAN?

Your camouflaged stretch marks and scars will not change color. If you tan, your skin’s overtone will darken, but your stretch marks will remain the same color as your natural skin-toned ink tattoo.

Overall, your stretch marks will still be camouflaged because the “white” is no longer there. In short, there’s less of an obvious contrast. Here’s a great video explaining what happens to your stretch mark tattoos when you tan.

WILL IT HURT? DO YOU NUMB YOUR CLIENTS?

The Stretch Mark Camouflage Tattoo is a penetrative skin procedure so a small amount of discomfort will be experienced. Usually on a scale 1-10 (10 being most painful), the average consensus is a 6 or 7. 

We do not numb our clients to avoid any interference to the purity and insertion of pigment into the scar. In addition, your pain receptors will be heightened if you’re on your monthly cycle, and so we suggest you book your session/touch-ups accordingly.

HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS?

There’s little to no downtime. Most clients can resume work the same day, or even fly home after their session. It’s normal to experience redness and swelling immediately after the procedure for 1-3 days. 

For the first 3 days, you’ll be given strict instructions on how to minimize inflammation, speed up the wound-healing phase, and how to “ice” the area and keep it clean. 

Over the next few weeks, the redness will dissipate and go through a variety of shades (from dark to light) until your skin heals. We’ll be in contact with you every step of the way.

HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM MY PROCEDURE?

Everyone’s skin is different. Variables include age, diet, hormones, general health, overtones, sun exposure, etc and so it’s impossible to give an exact number of days it will take you to heal.

On average, it takes 45-60 days, but if you’re prone to hyper-pigmentation (you naturally scar dark), it will most likely take longer to heal. During your consultation, we can discuss and assess your skin’s estimated timeline and variables.

*Here’s a recent case study of our fastest healing client to help you speed along your recovery!

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS OF THE PROCEDURE LAST?

The Stretch Mark Camouflage Tattoo is a penetrative skin treatment that’s only been around for 6-7 years. According to our industry, it will last 5 years, or more provided that the correct after-care procedures are adhered to.

You may or may not need a touch up after 5-6 years. Remember, a stretch mark is a scar and so the skin is trickier to penetrate. In addition, as we age, all tattoos transition and change on our skin because there’s less elasticity and melanin production. This can affect your stretch mark camouflage tattoo, as well.

WHAT IS THE COST OF THE PROCEDURE?

The total cost of the procedure varies greatly per technician and is dependent on the location and severity of the stretch marks or scar requiring treatment. Studio Conceal charges anywhere between $500-$2,000/ per area. 

We require an initial consultation (in-person or virtual) free of charge with zero pressure, during which the final cost can be determined by a formal quote.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

Yes we do! We’ve partnered with United Medical Credit to offer easy, reliable financing for all camouflage services and training. It’s really easy to apply and only takes 3 minutes to get approved. They’ll do a soft credit check to determine your options and will be in contact with you in 24 hours. Apply for financing of tattoo treatment or training here, hassle free.

STRETCH MARK CAMOUFLAGE TATTOO VS. LASER TREATMENTS?

While Laser Treatments do work on stretch marks by damaging the skin’s outer layer and forcing it to heal itself, they do not put color back into the skin. So almost all clients who get Laser Treatments for their stretch marks still have noticeable stretch marks. In fact, many of our clients have had many

Laser Treatment procedures prior to walking into our studio. Another huge difference is the cost of that treatments.  Laser Treatments could run $1,000 to $3,000 per session, and can easily end up costing the client over $10,000 overall.

I would assume that most the clientele here are females but I wanted to leave a review as a male client. I had developed some dime-size “sun spots” on my back over the years from not using enough sunscreen. Nothing major but the bothered me a little bit. I called a few tattoo places and none of them really specialized in camouflage tattooing until one gal I spoke to said “If anyone can do it, it will be Jayd” and they were right! Sun spots are essentially circle scars and Jayd was very knowledgeable. She said scars are really hard to do because they don’t take ink well and on top of that I’m a redhead so I bleed easier than most. So we decided to give it a whirl anyways and it took 1-2 more sessions than we originally thought and my skin didn’t end up taking all they ink that we wanted but I’m super happy with the results. I highly recommend Jayd and Studio Conceal to anyone looking for camouflage/cosmetic tattooing.

Every single aspect of going to Jayd at Studio Conceal far exceeded my expectations. She magnificently camouflaged rather extensive white scars I had in front of and behind my ears - the result of a lower face lift I had several years ago. I’ve had 2 sessions and the results are darn near magical. In addition, the office is pristine and elegant. And Jayd is warm and friendly and professional. I live in Beverly Hills and she is 100 times better than anyone here who provides the same service. She has an artist’s eye. I couldn’t be happier. Very highly recommend!

I just completed my camouflage tattoo training with Jayd. Her professionalism and passion for the industry are immediately evident! As students, she made sure we were comfortable and felt at home. Her assistant Jamison was sweet, attentive and such a wonderful help to us all. 🙂 I loved the small class-size! Jayd was able to spend time with each of us, offering as much guidance as we needed and answering any questions we had. My experience was 100% positive and I will gladly train with her in the future when there is another opportunity! Thank you, Studio Conceal!
