STRETCH MARKS CAMOUFLAGEWelcome to finding the best approach for your stretch marks type. I know! You have been searching the internet for ever trying to make sense of all the offers and solutions, for your stretch marks and what to do to minimize them!
Should you do laser resurfacing, micro needling, invest in expensive serums and snake oils? To help you, I created a simple easy way to identify your stretch marks and the best approach and advice.
The first most important point to clarify is that there is nothing that can remove your stretchmarks, we can only make them less visible and improve their texture, also not all stretchmarks are alike and all need to be approached individually.
TYPE1: ARE YOUR STRETCH MARKS WHITE, LIKE THE EXAMPLE BELOW?
If you answered YES to Type 1: You are a great candidate for Nanocolor stretch marks camouflage.
TYPE 2: ARE YOUR STRETCH MARKS SILVER, BROWN PINK RED OR PUPLE LIKE THE EXAMPLE BELOW?
If you answered YES to Type 2: You are not a candidate at this time. Your stretch marks are most likely still healing and with time will lighten to a white color. Stretch marks must be white and at least two years old, depending on the severity and how fast you heal it can take longer.
RED: You most likely are still healing and the stretch marks will eventually become white. If you would like to speed the healing, laser session like VBeam, can be helpful. Do not treat with micro needling.
GREY PURPLE: Most often see on thin, light skin. You are most likely still healing. The stretch marks may or may not heal white. Last can sometimes make the stretch makes more purple. Microneedling can create permanent damage and make the stretch marks darker.
BROWN: Stretch marks are hyper-pigmented and can't be camouflaged. Ask your dermatologist for a topical bleaching cream to minimize the brown color.
TOO WHITE: Your skin is very white and the contrast between the skin and the stretch marks does not have enough contrast. You are a good candidate for micro needling.
TYPE 3: IS THE TEXTURE OF THE STRETCH MARKS DEEP or RAISED LIKE THE EXAMPLE BELOW?
If you answered YES to Type 3: You are not a candidate. The tear of the skin is deep, and sometime large, with or without small lines inside or lacking tone. At this time you are not a candidate for the NANO COLOR STRETCHMARKS CAMOUFLAGE. Please talk to your Doctor, for resurfacing or surgical options. Caution, micro needling on these stretch marks can create damage beyond repair.
TYPE 4: HAVE YOU PREVIOUSLY HAD STRETCH MARKS CAMOUFLAGING BY SOMEONE THAT MADE THEM MORE APPARENT, LIKE THE EXAMPLE BELOW?
If you answered YES to Type 4 you are not a candidate for NANOCOLOR Stretch marks Camouflage. With the popularity of the treatment, so is the number of people offering the treatment, without the proper knowledge. Depending on the extent of the damage, we may not be able to lift the pigment and correct.

CAN NANOCOLOR INFUSION, REMOVE MY STRETCH MARKS?
To this day, there is nothing available on the market that can completely remove stretch marks, unless in some case when the skin can be stretch in the case of an abdominal, some or all stretch marks can be removed. Nanocolor stretch marks camouflage, can address 2 aspect of the stretch marks the color and the texture, making them less visible.
CAN I GET THE TREATMENT WHILE PREGNANT OR BREAST-FEEDING?
Our highest priority is the safety of you and your baby, unfortunately, we are unable to treat you, while pregnant or breastfeeding. We look forward to treating you once you are no longer breastfeeding.
CAN YOU PERFORM NANOCOLOR STRETCHMARKS CAMOUFLAGE ON ANY SKIN TYPE?
Not all are candidate, they are many factors such as the skin type, stretchmarks color, age, and texture that determine if someone is a good candidate. 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 NANOCOLOR STRETCHMARKS CAMOUFLAGE IF I HAVE A SUN TAN?
Nanocolor Infusion, custom color blend, match the stretch marks with the color of your natural skin color. It’s best to wait until your tan has faded, so that the stretch marks custom blend perfectly with your natural tone ones the tan as faded. Matching stretch marks to a sun tanned skin will have the client look like a tiger once the tan as faded, and the skin lighten to it’s normal lighter skin tone. Please schedule your session accordingly 6 weeks post sun exposure.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN I GET A TAN:
If only I was given a dollar each time I am asked this question ( few times each day) ...When you tan, untreated scar or stretch marks, are more visible as the contrast between the tan skin and the white stretch marks increases. When you tan after having had the Nano color Stretch mark camouflage the contrast his diminished, and the stretch marks less visible. If you over tan more then 6 shade, stretch marks may become slightly more visible, but will get back as soon as the tan starts fading.
HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER?
There is little to no downtime for this procedure as most often it can be covered with clothing. Client can go back to work or fly back home. The treated area will look red and raised, this will resume in a few days, you will be sent home with direction on how to treat the area for proper healing and ultimate results. It's recommended to come to your appointment with soft fabric and loos clothing. ( avoid tight and harsh fabrics.HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM MY PROCEDURE?
They are many variables, like age, skin texture, stretch marks depth and type, 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, if you have a dark skin tone ad dry skin it might take up to 8 weeks During your consultation, we can discuss and assess your skin’s estimated timeline and variables.
STRETCH MARK CAMOUFLAGE TATTOO VS. LASER TREATMENTS?
Laser treatment work on stretch marks by damaging the skin’s outer layer and forcing it to heal itself, although they might improve the texture, they do not address the color contrast, unlike Nanocolor Infusion, does both, improve the texture and correct the color contrast, by restoring the 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 my clients have had many Laser Treatments procedures prior to having Nanocolor stretch marks camouflage.
