The process involves injecting pigment that matches a person’s skin tone to help hide the discoloring caused by the marks, thus making them blend into the skin better.

But does the procedure hurt at all? According to Khamilia, she says, “It feels fine,” and compares the injection to the feeling of a scratch. Dominique recommends getting 2 treatments, 3 to 4 weeks apart, and explains that it should usually last for up to 5 years or longer.
