Have you been struggling with the appearance of stretch marks and other unsightly tarnishes on your skin? If so, consider microneedling or stretch mark camouflage tattoos as possible cosmetic solutions.
Whether you have been left with stretch marks from weight loss or weight gain, pregnancy or growth spurts, scarring doesn’t have to be permanent once you choose a suitable treatment.
In this blog, we’ll dive into the pros and cons of each method and provide insights on deciding which option is best for you. From reducing the appearance of stretch marks to covering them up entirely, read on to learn how La Klinic can help restore your skin.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses a pen-like device fitted with a series of micro needles ranging from 0.5 mm to 2.5 mm. These create targeted punctures deep into your dermis that triggers your body’s immune response to rejuvenate your skin from within.
When used over stretch marks, it can help stimulate collagen and elastin production to help restore your skin, smoothen your skin texture and even out skin tone to hide the appearance of stretch marks and scarring.
While microneedling has been used for over 40 years to manage the look of stretch marks, a minimum of three sessions and a maximum of five or six may be recommended by your therapist to achieve an ideal result. However, it’s less effective at treating raised keloid scars.
What are stretch mark camouflage tattoos?
Also known as micro-pigmentation, stretch mark camouflage tattoos are a semi-permanent treatment that blends and conceals stretch marks with pigments that match your natural skin tone.
Whether your scarring is white or red or features purple undertones and other imperfections, camouflage tattoos effectively smoothen scars and raised keloids to provide a near-seamless finish.
Microneedling vs. stretch mark camouflage tattoos, which is better?
Microneedling and stretch mark camouflage tattoos are two different approaches to improving the appearance of stretch marks, and which one is ‘better’ depends on your goals, preferences and skin condition.Whether you want your body to heal and leave your skin supple through microneedling treatments or you desire a more instant transformation with a camouflage tattoo, both can improve your stretch marks. This is why many of our clients combine them to achieve a flawless finish.
