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.

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.  

AFTERCARE

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.
