How do Stretch Marks Form?
Stretch marks appear as bands of parallel lines across the surface of the skin. While they pose no medical risk to the people that have them and may even disappear on their own over time, they can still be a source of embarrassment and frustration for many women.
These cosmetic imperfections are usually the result of pregnancy or fluctuations in weight, coupled with an increase in the hormone cortisone. Cortisone is naturally produced and excreted by the adrenal glands and is a healthy part of normal functioning. However, excess amounts of this hormone can tighten the skin, making it more rigid and prone to stretch marks.
How Can we Help?
At Georgia Center for Female Health, we’re proud to offer our patients access to state-of-the-art micro-needling treatments. This chemical-free procedure is one of the most effective treatments used to improve the appearance of stretch marks that are available today.
During a micro-needling procedure, a series of ultra-fine needles are applied to the patient’s stretch marks. These needles create micro-injuries at the surface of the skin that stimulate the body’s natural healing process, spurring the creation of collagen and newer, healthier skin tissues. A series of micro-needling treatments can dramatically improve the appearance of stretch marks or even eliminate them altogether.
Best of all, nearly any woman interested in softening the appearance of her stretch marks is a potential candidate for a micro-needling treatment. This procedure can also be used to correct aesthetic imperfections like photoaging, loose skin, wrinkles, and scars.
