If you’re bothered by scars or stretch marks, Greco Dermatology has you covered. We offer scar and stretch mark treatment in the form of cosmetic tattooing at our Sarasota clinic.
What Happens During the Treatment?
Vicky will consult with you beforehand to select the right color for your unique skin tone. Once the selection has been made and the area is numb, you will be made comfortable and the treatment will begin. The pigment is deposited directly into the stretch mark or scar using a tattoo needle-like device. Almost immediately, the scar or stretch mark will become red and raised. This is completely normal, and an important part of the process. It means that your body will produce more collagen for the area. Everyone’s pain threshold is different, so we encourage you to let us know if you’re uncomfortable. We will do everything we can to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during your treatment.
The amount of time the procedure takes will depend on the size of your scar(s) or stretch marks. Two coatings per session is typical, and usually patients need 2-3 sessions scheduled 30-45 days apart.
