Laser Stretch Mark Removal Treatment
How to get rid of stretch marks?
— is the most common question that my clients ask.
I answer from the point of view of science: nowadays it is impossible to get rid of stretch marks completely, but it is possible to make them significantly less visible.
Why do stretch marks appear?
Stretch marks are scarring on the skin caused by the dermal layer tearing. They result from excessive dermal stretchings after rapid weight loss/gain, pregnancy, or pubertal growth spurts.
Stretch marks first appear as reddish or purple lines but gradually fade to a lighter flesh-toned color. The affected areas appear empty and soft to the touch.
Stretch marks occur within the middle layer of the skin, known as the dermal layer, which helps the skin retain its shape.
Imagine stretch marks as deep caves. They reach the middle and deep layer of the skin. Damaged collagen covers both sides of them. Cells that produce new collagen and elastin surround these caves. But the number of these cells is much less compared with areas of skin without scars or stretch marks.
How to get rid of stretch marks?
Stretch marks are areas of the skin with damaged collagen( like scars). When we grow the collagen around the stretch marks, we close the stretch marks from both sides. As a result, they are becoming much less noticeable.
Technology destroys damaged collagen areas and stimulates cells that produce new collagen and elastin to work hard to close the stretch mark.
What is the technology behind the stretch marks treatment?
Microneedling RF SCARLET is the latest and most advanced technology, which removes stretch marks and acne scars. Microneedling RF delivers energy to the deep skin layer and leaves the upper skin intact.
VTOUCH is a new, fractional RF technology developed especially for scar treatment. Vouch destroys damaged collagen and stimulates it to grow a new healthy one. V-touch only works on light skin because it damages the superficial skin layer with the risk of post-traumatic hyperpigmentation.
REACTION starts the new collagen production. Response stimulates new collagen growth in the areas affected by stretch marks.
In addition, we deliver PEPTIDE — boosters for collagen growth using Infusion (mesotherapy needle-free technology).
Before / After
A:You know that caves of scars or stretch marks are deep. Do you think that creams, masks, or even peels and microdermabrasion will work on such a depth? The response is NO! All of them cannot reach the layer of collagen.
A:Some lasers, RF- Radio Frequency and Fractional RF.
A:Many of lasers destroy only superficial skin layer but not deep. Stretch marks are deep collagen layer problem.
A:RF stimulates collagen growth without damaging the superficial skin layer. It is the safest solution for the representatives of darker skin type because it never creates hyper pigmentation. Consider 6-9 treatments. The result will appear 2 month after the treatment was started. It is physiology of the process for the new collagen to grow.
A:Stretch marks removal with Fractional RF gives the best results in modern aesthetic medicine. The technology “burns out “damaged collagen like laser and stimulates new collagen production working as RF on a depth. People with skin type 4+ should have additional precaution in order to avoid hyper pigmentation after the treatment. Consider 3-6 treatment once per month.
