Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage Aftercare/Healing

One of the most important steps to Brazilain Stretch Mark Camouflage is the aftercare. With proper aftercare, you can expect the best results and quick healing time. If you do not follow the proper aftercare guidelines, you can cause a slower healing process, hyperpigmentation and improper healing.  

The Day Before Treatment: Exfoliate

"I like to ask my clients to exfoliate the day before treatment, to smooth the area and remove any dead skin from the area," said Alicia Shapira.

The area may be red and swollen for up to 72 hours after treatment.


First Two Weeks After Treatment

  • Do not scratch the treated area. It may be slightly itchy, from healing, but it's important to NOT SCRATCH! If the itching is unbearable, we recommend to lightly pat the area.
  • Do not use A & D ointment!
  • We recommend our patients apply Aquaphor to the treated area.
  • Do not swim or sweat in the treated areas for 2 weeks after.

2 Months After Treatment

  • Avoid sun exposure for 60 days!
  Your stretch marks will go through a series of changes for 60-90 days. For example, the marks may get darker before getting lighter, it's important to have patience when healing from this treatment. "You have been dealing with stretch marks for years. So a few months of patients and following instructions, to achieve beautiful results, it totally worth it," says Alicia.   Some patients may fully heal in 60 days and some may take 90, it can change depending on your diet, skin tone, skin type and more.   About 30% of our clients do come back for a touchup. It depends on each individual, how well they follow post-care instructions and how their skin takes the treatment.

The Healing Process of Brazilian Stretch Mark & Scar Camouflage

Healing time and instructions are always a very important topic to discuss when it comes to Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage. If a patient does not follow the proper aftercare it can lead to longer healing time and possibly a higher need for touch-ups down the road.  


It's very important to follow the proper aftercare instructions with both of these procedures. If they are followed, you should find your healing time much quicker. But if you do not follow proper instructions, you run the risk of getting your skin inflamed and slowing down the healing process. For example, if you go to a pool, beach, sauna or sweat excessively too soon, you put your results at risk. At the end of the day, most people have had stretch marks their whole life, so taking a few weeks to treat the area properly is totally worth the beautiful result at the end! This treatment is a miracle, and Alicia Shapira is a magician! So for those who have dealt with stretch marks for 10,20,30 years, this wait is nothing! Just because you may not see results after the first session, does not mean it won't work.


It takes, on average, 60-120 days for Brazilian Stretch Mark and Scar Camouflage clients to fully heal.

Most Common Factors That Effect the Healing Process

  • Diet
  • Vitamins
  • Prescription Medications
  • Skin Type
  • Ethnicity
  • If your skin has the tendency to hyper pigment
Take a look at this 90-day healing process below. You will notice the stretch marks will appear dark and red for several weeks before they are camouflaged to the skin. It's important to be patient with this treatment and always listen to your aftercare instructions, to ensure a beautiful result.   All of our clients return for a follow up 60-90 days after, this is to see if there is any need for a touchup. And usually, 40% of clients will want/need 1-3 more sessions. And the results are permanent!   If you have darker skin, you are less likely to need a touchup. And sometimes it may only be a few stretch marks that need a touchup, during your follow up appointment. It's important to understand all of our bodies are unique, which means the healing process may look a little different for all of us. So patience and responsibility will lead to an amazing result to last you a lifetime!   Be sure to follow our social media's at @newimagebeautybar for more information!

What Happens If You Tan After Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage?

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive when talking about Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage is, what happens if my skin gets tan after my treatment?

Of course, this is an expected question, because the color used to camouflage your stretch marks is technically a permanent color. So does that mean the color will stay the same if the rest of you tans, or will they also tan with your skin now?

So here is the answer. We create a custom color to match your natural skin color, to disguise your white, grey, or pink stretch marks. This procedure tattoos the Dermis layer, which is the second layer of the skin, a layer that the sun never reaches.

So when you tan, this layer of your skin, the tattooed layer, will not be touched or changed by the sun. This means your stretch marks may appear lighter than your skin tone if your skin is more tanned than it was during treatment. So your skin will tan, but the camouflaged tattoos will not. But once your skin returns to its natural shade, it will once again match your tattoed stretch marks.

How Korean Beauty Influenced the US

Korean beauty is a term used to describe beauty products and services derived from South Korea. In Korea, we can see the use of beauty from ancient times, dating as far back as 57bc, where you can see ancient murals of women wearing blush, thin eyebrows and hairdressing.   That being said, it's no wonder why Korean beauty has such a huge impact on the beauty industry, around the world, including the United States. And we still see some of the most popular beauty trends coming from Korea. Even in 2020 we see lots of gloss eyeshadow, glossy lips and gloss highlighter, all trends from Korea.   New Image Beauty Bar Owner, Alicia Shapira, has always been a huge fan of Korean Beauty. She said, "My dream is to go to Korea one day to learn more about all the incredible beauty techniques they have." And she even practices Korean beauty at her Beauty Bar. BB Glow, Hyaluron Pen and Fibroblast treatments are all services Shapira offers, and all services stemmed from Korean Beauty.   BB glow is a semi-permanent pigment that is placed on your skin to give you a glow and even skin tone. Fibroblast-Skin tightening treatment is NON-invasive or NON-surgical procedure where no scalpels or any surgical instruments are used. Hyaluron pen is a needle-free, handheld device that uses high pressure to “inject” hyaluronic acid fillers into the lips. There are no needles and no punctures. The pressure is so strong that it can push small amounts of hyaluronic acid fillers into the lips each time the device is used.   We can't wait to see what other beauty trends come from Korea and be sure to follow us on all social media @newimagebeautybar to see all of our amazing procedures and services offered at New Image Beauty Bar.
