Are you tired of those pesky stretch marks? At some point or another, we all see one or two visible stretch marks and begin to wonder if these lines will be there forever. Certain factors such sudden weight loss or gain, pregnancy and even some health conditions may lead to visible stretch marks. While the skin is normally very elastic, rapid changes in body volume can lead to a disruption in the production of collagen, the essential protein that makes up the connective tissue of the dermis.
Stretch marks are more common in women, but men can also get them in the abdominal area, or along the thigh, back or buttock zones. Body builders are also prone to developing stretch marks, as well as individuals who are required to use steroid creams, such as hydrocortisone for several weeks, or individuals who have oral corticosteroid medications.
The good news is these stretch marks may fade away with time. However, if you would like to expedite the process Eclipse MedSpa offers clients 3 great options in treating those unwanted stretch marks. Below is a great overview to see what may work best for you!
Microdermabrasion is the most common procedure in reducing the appearance of stretch marks. This painless procedure targets the upper layer of skin and works by stimulating the skin to tighten collagen and elastin fibers. During the treatment, the skin is exfoliated using small crystals over the area. These crystals gently remove dead skin from the skin. To get more effective results, multiple treatments may need to be repeated over time.
Microneedling targets the middle layer of the skin where stretch marks tend to form. At Eclipse MedSpa, the ProCell procedures uses tiny needles to poke the skin to stimulate collagen production. With the increase of collagen, it promotes the skin regeneration and tighter elastin to improve your skin’s appearance and reduce stretch marks. Microneedling has been shown to be a more effective treatment for patients with darker skin.
Lastly Eclipse MedSpa offers laser treatments as another procedure to remove stretch marks. With the use of our Sublative radio frequency services, we are able to precisely penetrate the area of the skin to trigger regeneration. The procedure will stimulate the tissues around your stretch marks to heal at a faster rate.
As you can see there are a variety of different procedures available to treat stretch marks and other skin issues. Call Eclipse MedSpa to find out which option may be right for you!
