INKLESS STRETCHMARK/SCAR REVISION

Scar Reduction and Skin Revision

Stretchmarks are striations in the skin typically caused by weight gain from transitions like adolescence, pregnancy and body-building. They are very common, with a majority of people having them. Stretchmarks may be a source of self consciousness for some, but there are ways to effectively treat them.

 

Inkless Stretchmark or Scar Revision (ISR) is a needling procedure infusing a mix of vitamins and serums into the skin to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars. It activates the production of collagen, elastin, and melanocytes, improving the texture, depth and the color contrast of stretch marks, helping them blend in more with the surrounding skin.

Inkless Stretchmark Revision vs Laser Treatments

 

As a non-ablative, non-thermal treatment, inkless stretchmark revision does not remove or burn the top layer of the skin. ISR stimulates the body's natural collagen, elastin, and melanocyte production, therefore, it will help restore and normalize pigmentation in the skin, whereas lasers will not. Inkless treatments tend to cost much less than laser treatments.

Inkless Stretchmark Revision vs Ink Camouflage
 

Stretch mark camouflage attempts to match ink to your skin tone to blend the appearance of the stretch marks with surrounding unaffected skin. Ink based camouflage can be problematic in that it may change color over time and your skin tone may change with light exposure (tanning). With inkless stretchmark revision, there is no ink used. Through healing from the procedure and over time, the skin will regain its own natural pigmentation, blending seamlessly on its own.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT INKLESS STRETCHMARK/SCAR REVISION (ISR)

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?

Pain varies on the individual, the area we are treating, and other contributing factors such as menstrual cycle, sleep deprivation, stress levels, caffeine intake, etc. We will use a topical numbing cream before and/or during your treatment to minimize any discomfort. 

HOW LONG DO TREATMENTS TAKE?

Depending on the area and condition being treated, the procedure could vary from 20 minutes to 1.5 hours.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The number of sessions required will depend on the size and depth of the scar/stretch marks and the client’s expectations. Typically, it will take between one to four sessions to achieve desired results. Collagen levels peak at about 14 days post treatment and continue for weeks following.  Sessions are booked 6-8 weeks apart, to allow the deeper layers of skin time to heal in between.

WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?

Inkless Stretchmark Revision has little to no downtime; most people return to work following the procedure. Skin redness and swelling are expected immediately following the treatment. Swelling will subside within 24 hours; redness can persist for several days. Your skin may feel dry, tight, itchy or sensitive in the 7-21 days following, depending on the location of the area treated and how aggressive the treatment was performed. Products to hydrate and nourish the skin will be offered following your treatment.

WHO IS NOT A CANDIDATE FOR ISR?

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding

  • Contagious skin conditions or infections in the area

  • Bruises, raised moles or warts in the treatment area

  • Skin cancer or radiation therapy in the last year

  • Broken skin (wounds, rashes, blisters, active acne)

  • History of keloid or hyper-tropic scarring

  • Eczema, psoriasis or severe solar keratosis

  • Hemophiliac

  • Diabetic on the needle (will require doctor's clearance)

  • Have used Accutane in the past year

  • History of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation - a patch test may be recommended beforehand.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TREATMENT?

  • Avoid excessive sun exposure or tanning 1 week before your appointment.

  • Shower before; skin should be clean without lotion, oil, makeup, deodorant or sunscreen.

  • Avoid using skin thinners (vitamin A, glycolic acids, exfoliation, benzyl peroxide) to the treatment area 1 week prior to your appointment. 

  • Avoid alcohol or blood thinners (Aspirin, Ibuprofen, other NSAID medication, fish oil, Niacin, Vitamin E) 48 hours before your procedure, to avoid excess bleeding. Do not stop required medications without first consulting with your doctor.

CAN ALL SCARS BE TREATED?

Scars must be fully healed and either flesh colored or lighter than the surrounding skin in order to receive the treatment. Any stretchmark/scars that are dark red or purple, raised/keloid or less than 9 months old cannot be treated. Inkless Stretchmark Revision is suitable for all skin types and can be used to treat stretch marks on various parts of the body, including the stomach, thighs, arms, and hips. Additionally, Inkless Scar Revision can treat scars from acne, surgery, injury, breast lift, facelift and tummy tuck.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT & HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?

Inkless Stretchmark Revision is designed to improve the appearance of your scars or stretch marks. While it cannot completely eliminate their appearance, most people can expect to see a 30-90% reduction in the severity of their scarring. ISR provides permanent results, however these can be affected if the skin undergoes further stretching via weight gain or injury to the area. The longevity of results is also dependent on factors such as age, lifestyle, diet and UV exposure.
