Strech Marks Treatments
While a variety of non-invasive stretch mark treatments are available today, they may produce little results. However, Microneedle is a highly promising new med spa technique that can actually heal and eliminate stretch marks up to 100%!
Microneedling treats stretch marks, including a wide range of skin imperfections! Our microneedling for stretch marks typically works for the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and upper arms!
The process of reducing stretch marks or treating stretch marks occurs as micro-needling promotes the production of new elastin and collagen fibers in the skin. The stretch marks should gradually fill in, and the skin should grow thicker, become tighter, and restore its elasticity. The speed at which stretch mark reduction can be achieved can vary depending on the severity of the stretch marks. However, visible changes may be detected in as little as a week with possible dramatic results in a month or less.
How does it work?
Micro needling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin.
This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars.
The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
An outstanding product absorption booster
These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results. We’ll employ various topicals depending upon your needs
- Hyaluronic serums
- Lightening or bleaching serums
- Stem cells to multiply new young cells
- Vitamin C for strengthening and antioxidant boost
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Much Improvement To My Stretch Marks Can I Expect?
While no treatment can completely eliminate or remove stretch marks, Microneedle can significantly improve the appearance of red, white, and purple stretch marks. In some cases, the stretch marks may even become difficult to see. We find that the skin rejuvenating effects of The Eraser work well on many types of scarring including stretch marks.
How Many Treatments Of Microneedle Will I Need?
Your treatment plan will be determined by the appearance of your stretch marks. We typically recommend 4 to 6 treatments to achieve full results.
When Will I See Results From The Treatment?
You will begin to see results within a week following treatment with clear results appearing by four weeks. Because Microneedle causes your body to naturally produce collagen to heal itself over time, you may continue to see improvement for up to a year.
Are Results Permanent?
Yes, as long as you maintain your skin’s moisture and wear sunblock on exposed, treated areas, your results should last a lifetime. However, you will still have the ability to make new stretch marks.
I’ve Had My Stretch Marks For More Than 20 Years – Can You Still Treat Them?
Yes, proprietary combination of micro-needling and PRP or Vitamins allows the skin to produce collagen and healing effects from below. New tissue will be created so that even old blemishes and scars like stretch marks are improved.
Is It Appropriate For My Dark Skin?
MIcroneedle treatments are safe and effective for all skin tones and types! In fact, there is less likelihood of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Does the treatment Hurt?
The depth of the needling during the treatment is adjusted based on the severity of your stretch marks. For treatments with shorter needles, only a slight sensation will be felt – similar to a tickle. When longer needles are required, a numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort.
Is There Any Downtime Following The Eraser Treatments?
There is little to no real downtime with The Eraser treatment. You may experience sunburn-like redness and/or mild swelling on treated areas for a few days. We will provide you with a special serum to apply for the first few days, but you can resume using regular skincare products by the third day following treatment. You should treat your skin gently for the next week or two by avoiding sunlight and using mild products.
