Alicia Shapira's scar lightening treatment is well sought after, all around the US. And we took some time to go over some commonly asked questions.  

Q: What do you use to lighten the scars?

A: "I use a special formula that I mixed together," says Alicia. This special blend includes around 3 different FDA approved vitamins per mixture. And she has 3 different mixtures that she will use, depending on the type of scar she is treating.  

Q: Is this the same as microneedling?
