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!

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!
