Scar Lightening Treatment

Our Scar Lightening treatment is an amazing procedure that uses FDA approved vitamins to lighten dark colored scars.  We commonly have patients with post surgery scarring or dark stretch marks that they are looking to disguise, and the results are amazing! This lightening treatment also creates the perfect canvas for our Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage procedure, that completely conceals the area, to match your exact skin tone. Camouflage can only be used on areas that are lighter than your skin tone, which is why our lightening treatment is the first step for those with dark colored scars or stretch marks.   It's important to note, this procedure is using our own mix of FDA approved vitamins that have been tested over the years, to determine the perfect amount for optimal results. For those wanting this exact procedure with our results, you must visit us or one of our trained students who has the same treatment as us. Hyperpigmented, or dark colored, scars can be very difficult to work with and can take a lot of time and patience, this treatment can take anywhere from 1 to 6 treatments in total. The lightening treatment takes around 2 months to completely heal. During the healing process the scar will turn red and may even scab up, it's important to note, the area may look worse before it gets better. After 60 days the final results will show, this is when you are expected to return for a follow up to see if you will require more lightening treatments. As noted before, patience is key in this lightening procedure as it may take months and a series of treatments before the area is fully lightened.   Watch Our YouTube video where Alicia treats Kathy Picos breast augmentation scars with our lightening treatment. This is her second session and the 3rd will be a 3D Areola Repigmentation treatment, to create the perfect areolas.

Who is Alicia Shapira?

Alicia Shapira is the founder and owner of New Image Beauty Bar. Funny enough, Shapira started as a full-time speech pathologist/cognitive trainer with two of her very own schools that she owned and operated. She really enjoyed her patients, but wanted a career change. She had dreams of getting into the beauty world, so she went back to school and graduated from her esthetician, permanent makeup/paramedical school. She knew once she had her first permanent makeup client, that this was the right decision for her.
She specializes in all of the following procedures: microblading, permanent upper and lower eyeliner, hair stroke eyebrows, shading eyebrows, permanent lip liner & lip blushing, hair simulation for men and women, Brazilian stretch mark and scar camouflage, lift tattoo
removal, collagen induction therapy (cit), dry tattooing, surgical scar softening, breast areola tattooing (3d-areola repigmentation), makeup services, dermaplaning, lash lift and tint, Brazilian under eye camouflage, vitamin glow treatment, BB glow facial treatment, fibroblast treatment, hyaluron pen injections for the face, lips.
The one procedure she am most proud of would have to be the Brazilian stretch mark and scar camouflage tattoo. This differs from the standard American technique, and Shapira was the first artist to learn directly from the creator himself, Rodolfo Torres from Brazil, and practice and teach this procedure in the USA. "I believe my passion for perfection and my constant want for knowledge and growth sets me apart from others," says Shapira. "I always feel the need to keep up with the times and learn the latest and greatest of procedures to help people feel beautiful and confident."

How to Choose the Right Brazilian Camouflage Artist

Happy Friday! Today we wanted to go over a VERY important topic that we have had quite a few people approach us out. Now if you found this page, it's most likely because you are considering Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage, which is an amazing procedure! But sometimes things can go wrong with this procedure if you do not do your research on who you are going to. There are 3 very important things you should know about Brazilian Camouflage.
  1. Alicia Shapira is the only person LEGALLY allowed to teach this procedure in the United States

That means if you are seeking a teacher and you go to someone other than Alicia Shapira or Rodolfo Torres's online classes (the founder of this procedure) you are doing it illegally. Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that there are several people in the US who are illegally teaching Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage. If you do see classes offered by anyone than Alicia Shapira, be weary, because these are not certified or legal training classes.  

2. Alicia Shapira is the FIRST to bring Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage to the United States and the only person hand trained by Rodolfo Torres, the inventor, himself.

8 years ago, Rodolfo Torres, the inventor of Brazilian Camouflage, flew to the US to hand train Alicia Shapira on this incredible procedure. And she is the only one hand trained in the United States. This means she is the United States expert! Feel free to always ask us questions about the procedure, or if you're interested in learning how to do this procedure for your own patients!  

3. Only Alicia Shapira's students have the proper products for this procedure.

If you go to someone who was not trained by Alicia Shapira, they did not receive proper training and are not using the correct Brazilian pigments. The Brazilian pigments used for this procedure can only be ordered by Alicia, and it's IMPERATIVE that these are the inks that are being used for this treatment. If you use a different ink, your stretch marks will turn grey, orange or green! Sadly there are many people out there claiming to have been trained by Alicia Shapira and ruining peoples bodies. Trust us, we correct botched Brazilian Camouflage all the time! Please, please always feel free to message, call or email us to verify each artist. Our students are amazing and they are all over the world. We are more than happy to recommend any of our students close to your location. So please ask before booking with someone!     The main message is to always verify and do your research. Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage is an incredible treatment that produces amazing results, if done properly. We are always here to answer any of your questions or verify our students. Stay safe!
