Stretch Mark Removal Treatment
Previously, stretch marks were extremely difficult to treat and stretch mark removal was almost impossible. The only options were ineffective creams that made little or no difference once the stretch mark had appeared.
The great news is that recent innovations mean we can reduce both old and new stretch marks. There are currently 2 types of treatment we can recommend. Collagen Induction Therapy is the use of small microneedles and potent pharmaceuticals, stretch marks can be dramatically reduced on all areas of the body and on all skin types.
PRX T-33 is a Bio revitaliser which can be used directly in the stretch mark to create ‘new skin’ targeting both the epidermis and dermis. On very stubborn stretch marks, we may use a combination of these therapies.
Types of Stretch Mark Removal
Depending on the age and severity of the stretch mark, we will recommend the best treatment for you. Digital and manual skin needling has proven to be extremely successful in reducing and removing stretch marks on all areas of the body.
Micro needles trigger a healing response in the skin causing the body to create collagen and elastin which repair the tears in the dermal layer. As the skin regenerates, the stretch marks will be replaced with more healthy skin and less scar tissue. Afterwards, the skin will look red and raised in the treatment area for 24-48 hours, over the following week you may develop a light scabbing across the treatment site.
In some cases you may develop Post Traumatic Hyperpigmentation, this is where the treated skin appears darker – this is completely normal and will fade over the following months as the skin heals
PRX T-33 is a great ‘needle free’ option, the potent blend is applied with a rubber spatula directly to the stretch mark in layers until the skin responds and the stretch mark starts to raise up. This treatment is painless and you can resume normal activities directly afterwards.
Microneeding is a really effective treatment for stretch marks. A small needle is used to create microchannels in the skin which promote and accelerate growth of collagen and elastin. This is how the skin will look directly afterwards, the redness will take a couple of days to return to normal and you may experience some light scabbing.
