What Are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are lines or streaks that form on the skin's surface. They are frequently called stria or striae (striae gravidarum during pregnancy) and most frequently appear on the thighs, buttocks, and stomach.
They appear when the skin is unexpectedly stretched, causing the dermis, the main layer of the skin, to occasionally split open and reveal the deeper layers beneath. Stretching the dermis is possible:
- Throughout pregnancy.
- As a result of gaining weight.
- Due to adolescent growth spurts.
Stretch marks frequently start out as red or purple and eventually turn silvery-white. Stretch marks treatments are available at the clinic using either individual or combined therapies.
Stretch Mark Treatments Available At Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic
We offer a wide range of stretch mark treatments to cater to everyone’s requirements, all with varying power levels. These include:
In order to remove the top layer of "dead skin," medical microdermabrasion uses a combination of positive air pressure and pure salt crystals to fire at the skin's surface. The medical microdermabrasion machine that the Solihull Medical Cosmetic Clinic employs is more potent and may resurface the skin to a deeper level to optimise outcomes, in contrast to inferior dermabrasion equipment in beauty salons. While there is some minor discomfort and redness, there is no downtime, unlike an intrusive resurfacing laser procedure.
A brand-new, non-invasive method of skin regeneration called "dermaroller therapy" might be able to heal and mend the skin's surface. In this technique, small micro-medical needles are used. It works by the needle breaking the skin causing micro-inflammation. This may stimulate new collagen production in the skin, and the depressed scars may plump up, causing them to appear less indented.
This involves the administration of Carbon Dioxide below the skin using a thin needle to help improve the appearance of stretch marks. Alongside increasing oxygenated blood flow to the region, carboxytherapy may also increase collagen formation, giving a more youthful glow.
Considered the best in scarring and stretch mark treatments, Laser Resurfacing uses targeted laser energy of a certain wavelength to penetrate deep into the dermis of the skin, stimulating new collagen-producing cells. On average three treatments are required monthly.
The look of white stretch marks can be reduced with the Excimer laser. Short UV pulses from the Excimer laser stimulate melanocytes, which then generate melanin, the pigment of the skin and then the stretch marks become darker due to melanin. The aim of the treatments is to re-pigment the stretch marks in order to make them blend in with the skin's natural colour and become less apparent.
