Q&A: Scar Lightening with Alicia Shapira

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?

A: No! This is not the same as microneedling. The scar lightening treatment uses a tattoo machine and tattoo needle, which are very small needles, to deposit the vitamins into the skin. whereas a microneedling treatment uses much larger needles.  

Q: How long does the treatment take?

A: Treatment takes about 1-2 hours, depending on the type of scar you have.  

Q: How many treatments do you need?

A: You would need anywhere from 1 to 3 treatments in total, depending each individual.  "Some people only need one, and some people will need the three," says Shapira.  

Q: How long until you can see the results?

A: The results will appear within 45-60 days after the treatment. Some people will see results within 20 days, but we recommend 45-60 days until you come back for another treatment.  

Q: How soon after a surgery can I be treated?

A: Scars must be 1 year old.  

Q: How much does it cost?

A: $300 - $800  

Q: What color scars can be treated?

Dark scars, dark red, dark brown, dark grey

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.
