Stretch Marks Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
Stretch marks can appear anywhere where the skin has been stretched but are most common on areas of the body where there’s weight gain and fat is stored, such as the stomach, breasts, thighs, buttocks and the upper arms. As we put on weight, the skin is stretched and the middle layer tear so that deeper skin layers and blood vessels show through (which is why stretch marks are often red or purple and raised when they first appear).
Stretch marks also affect women during the later stages of pregnancy as the baby grows to full term and are referred to as ‘striae gravidarum’. Although pregnancy stretch marks will fade after childbirth, they may not disappear completely.
Cosmetic surgery for stretch marks and flabby skin, such as a tummy tuck, is expensive but there are non-invasive options for treating stretch marks that have significant effects.
Genuine Dermaroller™ therapy – also known as ‘micro-needling’ – is a highly advanced and multi gold award-winning procedure. It stimulates collagen induction to improve poor quality skin, such as that affected by stretch marks, to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely.
We also offer INTRAcel™, a skin-tightening and skin rejuvenating system that uses micro-needling and radio-frequency for dramatic effects on stretch marks. This technology continues to improve the quality of your skin long after treatment.
