Stretchmarks are most commonly caused by changes in weight and pregnancy, occurring when your skin stretches quickly. They can appear white in colour, or sometimes red and can occur anywhere on the body. If they are unsightly and you feel self conscious, there is a solution; a technique called microneedling.
Microneedling is a way of stimulating your body’s healing processes. This heals skin naturally. It makes sense that you might be wary of the idea of subjecting yourself to hundreds of micro wounds, but microneedling is a safe way to use your own body’s natural response to get rid of stretch marks.
Each micro injury that’s created results in your body enacting a healing process. This process increases your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. These naturally fight the look of ageing and improve the tone of your skin. It’s been used to remove scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and shrink pores, and get rid of stretch marks. There are a few different approaches that are useful:
ResurFX:The ResurFX laser by Lumenis®, one of the world’s leading makers of medical devices, is a skin resurfacing option that prioritizes patient comfort just as much as effectiveness. It is a non-ablative laser, which means it stimulates the skin to develop collagen without harming or ablating any skin. As collagen increases, the skin looks tighter, more even, and more youthful. ResurFX is also a fractional laser, which means the laser is delivered to the skin in tiny dots and to only a fraction of the skin. The ResurFX requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective results, reducing treatment time. Finally, since it is a non-ablative, fractional laser, the recovery time after the procedure is minimized.
Dermapen Microneedling: Dermapen microneedling is ideal for a course of treatment designed to repair deep wrinkles, scars, and blotches. It’s the most prolific microneedling approach and is suited for a broad range of skin tightening and tone improvement.
Remember, microneedling is safe and painless. It heals skin naturally and is an ideal way to take years off your look. It can help with imperfections as precise as very fine wrinkles, or as broad as stretch marks. Different types of microneedling and courses of treatment are ideal for different people who are looking for it to solve different problems.
