Brazilian Strech Mark Camouflage is a procedure that New Image Beauty Bar founder and master artist Alicia Shapira brought to the United States. Now New Image Beauty Bar is the number 1 studio in the United States that not only provides this treatment but also teaches it at the New Image Beauty Bar Academy.
The treatment of Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage consists of tattooing the affected area with the right blend of flesh tone colors that match your skin tone. By doing this, the ink works as a camouflage to make the appearance of stretch marks virtually disappear to the naked eye.
Although stretch marks are typical, yet annoying part of life, most people wish that they could make them permanently disappear. There is an entire industry built around creams, lotions, and even surgery to help conceal these imperfections, but a Brazilian tattoo artist developed a much simpler, more effective solution that Alicia Shapira has learned and now offers here at her studio New Image Beauty Bar in Coral Springs, Florida!
Rodolpho Torres, of São Paulo, uses flesh-colored ink to hide stretch marks as well as circles under the eye. Anvisa (National Agency of Sanitary Surveillance) has approved his ink, and he personalizes each mixture to achieve a tone similar to that of the client’s skin. The ink blends into the stretch marks, giving them the color of the skin. Once the tattoos have healed, the client’s skin appears smoother, and after sixty days they can sunbathe without the risk of spots developing
Now, this technique has officially made its way to the United States, where Alicia Shapira has learned and practiced to provide you with the stretch mark tattoo camouflage treatment, without having to travel to Brazil!
“This is a phenomenal procedure everyone can appreciate and love- and now it’s practically in your own backyard of South Florida!” says Alicia. “I just ordered all of my ink to be delivered soon, and I am beginning to accept appointments for this treatment, so hurry and call because people would be crazy not to take advantage of this”.
The technique is a closely guarded secret, and there is only a handful of artists who can perform this technique, Alicia is proud to be one of them.
Skin or scar camouflage is tattooing of the skin with different colors of flesh tone pigments. Its purpose is to disguise a scar or skin area that is missing pigment or color. It is a specialized area of permanent cosmetics that falls under the category of Medical or Paramedical Tattooing. This process is also called Corrective Pigment Camouflage (CPC), Corrective Camouflage, Skin Re-Pigmentation, Scar Camouflage, Skin Camouflage, Camouflage Tattooing, and Skin Color Tattooing. The science behind pigments and the physiology of human skin and tissue must be understood by the specialist performing these procedures. These procedures require advanced knowledge, training, skills, and experience in permanent cosmetics as well as an artistic eye for color and skin tones. (Note* Multiple sessions are required)
Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage – FAQs
Does Stretch Mark Camouflage really work on stretch marks?
What happens to my Stretch Mark Camouflage when I get a tan?
Before the stretch mark camouflage procedure, tanning usually makes stretch marks more noticeable, especially if you have white stretch marks. When you receive Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage, tanning won’t make your stretch marks stand out. So no need to worry about how tanning may affect the treated spot.
How will my skin look immediately after Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage Treatment?
After your Stretch Mark Camouflage treatment, your skin may be visibly red and swollen. This is perfectly normal. It is very important to follow the post-procedure care of camouflaging that New Image Beauty Bar provides so that proper healing occurs. Camouflage is a tattoo, so during the recovery process, it requires special care to encourage healing.
How Quickly can I see the results of the Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage Procedure?
The final result may occur between 60-90 days, we will assess the need for another session after 60 days. In some cases, it can take longer to heal, don’t panic. The longest we’ve seen is 120 days. If you are a vegan or have an autoimmune disorder, the healing process may take longer. There are many variables, like age, skin texture, stretch marks depth and type, general health, overtones, sun exposure, etc. and so it’s impossible to give an exact number of days it will take you to heal.
Stretch Mark Camouflage vs Laser Treatments
Laser treatment work on stretch marks by damaging the skin’s outer layer and forcing it to heal itself, although they might improve the texture, they do not address the color contrast. Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage addresses the color contrast of your skin, allowing for the stretch marks to be less visible and noticeable.
