When it comes to treating stretch marks, a daily application of Bio-Oil, a bottle of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Cream, or a pricey laser session might come to mind. But getting a tattoo? Not exactly something that you’d associate with this beauty topic. But that’s exactly what Alicia Shapira is now offering, and residents of South Florida have yet another wonderful reason to visit New Image Beauty Bar of Coral Springs.

So whats the inside scoop? Rodolpho Torres, a Brazilian tattoo artist had become known for his stretch marks “camouflaging method.” He takes flesh-toned ink and fills in the scars so they’re less visible. You can see it in action, too, as Torres’s Instagram feed is filled with videos demonstrating his exclusive treatment, along with shockingly impressive before-and-after shots. Well over time, Torres acquired an apprentice, Fernanda Jaffre who just recently made a first ever appearance in the United States to teach this exclusive treatment right here in Fort Lauderdale, FL! Alicia Shapira hosted Jaffre, and was fortunate enough to be one of the few artists who received this training.

Before now, this treatment was only available in Brazil. Though there are other derm-approved methods out there, like microneedling and laser treatments, this latest method of providing women with an effective cover up to rid you of your stretch marks for the duration of the ink’s life, just like any other tattoo you may acquire. If you’re thinking of receiving this treatment, have any further questions, or would like to book an appointment, please call 954-774-5087 and speak to Alicia directly. As the owner of New Image Beauty Bar and a certified trainer in this procedure and many others, you are sure to feel safe and comfortable entrusting Alicia with your body.
