It is highly recommended that you follow Posh Beauty Artistry’s Pre & Post Care instructions to ensure the best possible results and longevity of your paramedical tattoo treatment. This information acts as a guideline only. We cannot guarantee results. Each client’s skin responds differently both in how long it takes to heal, and the number of sessions needed and desired results. It is important that you take good care of your stretch marks or scars while healing and beyond.

Pre-Care Before the Appointment

  • No sun tanning, self-tanners, including spray tans beginning 4 weeks prior to appointment. It is important to make sure your skin is not tanned as we need to be able to achieve your natural skin tone- If you are tanned at the time of the treatment then your stretch marks/ scars will end up looking darker than the rest of your skin once your tan goes away. 

  • Shave/wax areas prior if needed

  • No lasering before the treatment

  • Drink plenty of water and come hydrated

  • No Aspirin or Ibuprofen 48 hrs. prior to the treatment

  • No Alcohol and Caffeine 24 hrs. prior to the treatment

  • Wear loose clothes on the treatment day, as the area(s) will be slightly tender.

  • Do not wear serums, toners, creams, or other products the day of the treatment.

  • Shower the day of your treatment and gently exfoliate the area to be treated.






  • The treated area(s) will be red, swollen, and perhaps even a little tender to the touch. This is normal. It will all subside over the next days

  • The scars will start darkening in color over the next couple of weeks but will eventually lighten up again. The final color will be about 25-30% lighter once fully healed. Which is why a touch up session(s) are recommended

  • During healing, you will experience dryness, scabbing, and flakiness. Please do not pick or scratch as you may compromise the healing skin

  • To protect our clients and obtain the best results, we take a conservative approach and carefully deposit pigment with each session

  • Camouflage tattoo is NOT a one-and-done procedure. It can take up to 4 sessions to obtain the desired results

  • The healing process is different for everyone, it can be anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks. The best way to protect your investment and avoid infection is to follow the aftercare instructions we have provided very carefully

  • During the healing, if you experience a pain increase or develop a fever, please notify us immediately and see your primary care to ensure it is not an infection or allergic reaction


Always Wash hands before touching the treated area

Day 1 (same day as treatment):

  • No showering after the treatment 

  • Do not wear tight clothing for the first 5 days

  • Apply Aquaphor 2-3x daily with clean hands for the first 10 days. Please do not apply Neosporin or any other ointments.

  • Wet treated areas or shower 12 hours post-procedure

  • Workout or sweat for at least 6 days

  • Workout or sweat for at least 7 days

  • Expose the wound to direct sunlight for 30 days as it can cause discoloration

  • Go swimming, exfoliate, use hot baths, jacuzzi, or a sauna for at least 14 days

  • Use creams or products in the treated area other than the aftercare provided to you

  • Scratch, scrub, rub, or pick at the scabs that form after the procedure, as it can pull out the pigment underneath

  • Tan or expose the treated area to direct sunlight for 30-40 days. This can cause your scars to hyper-pigmentate permanently


Following the proper post-care is necessary to achieve the best results. When scheduling an appointment for a paramedical tattoo treatment please keep in mind the healing time of the treatment will depend on your body’s regeneration, age, immune system, and lifestyle.
