  CORAL SPRINGS, FL – As Alicia Shapira tells it, magazine models, reality TV show celebrities, and other glamour queens trickle in and out of her beauty salon in a not-so-fashionable retail strip in Coral Springs. They come for her lash-lifts-and-tips, hair simulations, and a slew of other makeup and body services, but also to be part of Shapira’s growing fashionista stratosphere. Coral Springs is no South Beach or Wynwood when it comes to social media influencers, but Shapira and her New Image Beauty Bar on Wiles Road stand out for their presence on Instagram and TikTok, where she’s gotten more than 250,000 likes. “I treat my clients like family,” said Shapira, 42, who grew up in Coral Springs and now lives with her husband and two-year-old son in Parkland. Her path to running a salon is a story of changing professions, re-inventing herself after a catastrophic accident, and following a childhood love of glamour and art. Shapira is a fast-talking businesswoman who is in constant motion. As her brand has grown, she’s no longer just applying makeup and getting women ready for big occasions in their lives. Shapira is also making a name for herself as an educator in the beauty services industry and in the world of microblading, permanent makeup, and a procedure called Brazilian Stretch Mark Camouflage, which uses pigment to hide stretch marks. She said her treatment is drawing clients from all parts of the world. Her salon offers free re-pigmentation and permanent eyebrows services to cancer survivors, she said. “It’s amazing to see how people react after our procedures,” she said last week, pausing to instruct her staff member on a client appointment. “They are so happy.” She found her calling in life after ending a short career as a speech therapist and before that a financial manager. She grew up attending Ramblewood Middle School and J.P. Taravella High School, and remembers, as a teenager, enjoying applying makeup on friends and being intrigued with the beauty and fashion industries. But her vision crystallized following a fall in a store when she was 30 and newly married. Her injuries required hospitalization, surgeries, and intensive physical therapy. She was in a wheelchair. “I thought my life was over. I thought I’d never walk again,” she said. “I did a lot of thinking and I changed my life and did something more fulfilling.” Eventually, she got better, put her energy into opening New Image Beauty Bar, and used her marketing talents to grow the business and catch the attention of the right clients. Shapira envisions opening another salon in Miami early next year and continuing to travel across the nation and to other countries to train others in beauty services. “My life has gone in such a good direction,” she said. “I just want to help people feel happy.”   Be sure to check out More on Tap Into Coral Springs.   Contact Alicia Shapira for more information: (954) 774-5087 alicia.newimagebeautybar@gmail.com 7401 Wiles Rd.

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!

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.
