Stretch marks are a type of scar tissue that forms when skin undergoes rapid stretching during events like pregnancy or extreme weight fluctuations. Although they are not harmful, these irregular bands of tissue can cause you to look into your stretch mark removal treatment options.
Minimally-invasive stretch mark removal techniques are becoming very popular these days due to their ability to significantly minimize stretch marks without the need for surgery that can be expensive, involve complications, and lead to lengthy downtimes. One of the best solutions out there is known as microneedling, and it could work for you!
A Closer Look at Microneedling
Microneedling is able to treat a wide range of skin conditions including wrinkles, scars, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks. It works through the delivery of micro-channels on the surface layers of the skin. This stimulates the patient’s own body into developing new collagen to replace skin damaged by problems like stretch marks.
Your microneedling treatment begins when we thoroughly numb your skin with a topical agent. The technician will then gently glide a device over your skin repeatedly. This forms thousands of microscopic openings that trigger a self-repair process that results in the turnover of old skin cells in favor of new ones displaying minimized imperfections like stretch marks.
Microneedling can also enhance the effects of topical products that may be used to remove stretch marks or for other reasons. The thousands of microscopic channels created by a microneedling session act as tiny channels to allow topicals to better penetrate your skin and become much more effective.
Who is a Candidate?
Microneedling makes a good stretch mark removal treatment choice for women of various ages. Whether you are dealing with stretch marks as a result of weight fluctuations or because of previous pregnancies, this solution could work for you.
One key advantage to undergoing this treatment for stretch mark removal is the precision that it offers. Only a predefined area of skin will be affected. This is a very versatile type of skin treatment that works at minimizing or eliminating various types of blemishes.
