Stretch mark removal

Stretch marks are caused by the elongation of the connective tissue of the skin. They often appear as a result of pregnancy, rapid growth, weight gain or hormonal changes. They can be treated effectively with lasers or micro-needling procedures.

How do stretch marks form?

Stretch marks are one of the most common aesthetic problems caused by the stretching and cracking of the skin. The main reason for formation is that the connective tissue providing the skin’s elasticity cannot keep up with the body changes of pregnancy, sudden growth or rapid weight gain. As a consequence, this adaptation failure leads to disruptions. The skin construction is made up of elastin and collagen fibers. When this struction injures, the homogenous appearance, flexibility and firmness of the skin break down. The typical stripes and indented streaks develop in a perpendicular direction to skin tension.

Women are more likely to develop stretch marks, but it’s not unheard of in men either. The most common areas include the stomach, thighs, breasts, butt, hips and upper arms.

The stripes are red or purple at first and then become pearly white as a part of the healing process.

For prevention it’s important to have a healthy lifestyle and proper, targeted skincare routine. Nowadays there are great and effective products and professional treatments for when the aesthetic problem is already formed.

Morpheus8 microneedle radiofrequency - Skin tightening 

Favorable attributes of radiofrequency microneedle treatment include serving spectacular and perceptible improvement on appearance and skin texture in a very short time period without plastic surgery. Morpheus 8 uses micro needling therapy combined with radiofrequency technology. While penetrating the skin surface, special microneedles create puncture channels in the epidermis and dermis also, in order to lead down electromagnetic energy precisely where it’s needed. This electromagnetic field generates the thermal heating of the dermis and promotes neocollagenesis, elastin formation and angiogenesis as parts of the healing process. Thanks to this method the skin structure rebuilds itself and the stretch marks get faded.

Laser stretch mark removal

Stretch marks can be faded away by using a fractionated laser technology in favor of alleviating the aesthetic problem. During the treatment with the help of a high-energy laser beam, the stretch marks will gradually disappear. The method stimulates the natural collagen- and elastin production of the skin and improves its general structure and quality. If the stretch marks have been developed a long time ago, they usually show a pearly-white color and a decreased ability to regenerate. That’s why in this case an elongated treatment plan will be needed. However it can be said in general that the newer the stria, the more effective the therapy will be. The place of the indented strokes can alter the results, and other supplementary procedures (e.g. micro needle therapy) may be needed in order to achieve the best outcome.

CO2 laser skin rejuvenation and resurfacing

The fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a non-surgical aesthetic medical treatment. This ablative kind of laser removes the epidermis and heats the underlying, deeper skin layer, while causing pixelated micro-injuries. In this way a targeted and well-regulated collagen- and elastin stimulation happens and an intense regenerating process is getting induced. The general appearance of the skin gets improved and the stretch marks fade away.
