Stretch marks - local atrophy of the skin in the form of narrow wavy inflamed bands. Stretch marks (Stria) appear in the form of wavy surface parallel stripes. These bands can be red or white in color, rise, be flush with the skin or fall off the skin level.
This procedure has a comprehensive approach and eliminates cosmetic defects, making stretch marks less noticeable.
"Treatment of Stretch marks", that is, complete removal of stretch marks is possible only by surgical method, when the affected area of the skin is completely removed. When talking about cosmetic treatment of stretch marks, the most correct, in our opinion, to apply the term Correction of stretch marks. Correction involves the elimination of cosmetic defects, ie the ability to make stretch marks less noticeable, to give the skin an aesthetic appearance without surgery by traumatic techniques.
Stretch marks correction
Stretching is a general term that characterizes the external appearance of the skin. There are two main kind of stretch marks: red and white, depending on the degree of "maturity", which requires different approaches in their correction.
To correct stretch marks we use:
- laser treatments:
- fractional skin rejuvenation - corrects atrophic scars of stretch marks
- BBL photorejuvenation system help decrease redness appearance
- RF Lifting for Stretch Marks - Reduces skin laxity and excess of skin
- injection techniques - nourish the skin, restoring its elasticity
- cosmetic programs and care.
The fractional laser will affect several "weaknesses" of stretch marks at once. Laser removes microscopic areas of the skin to replace the young cells, which smooth the skin's microrelief, restores moisture processes in the skin. In result, the skin appear a uniform tone, disappear signs of dryness of the epidermis. The deep thermal effect in the dermis activates the natural repair processes in the skin. This will trigger the mechanisms of synthesis of new collagen in the skin. The skin will become more elastic over time, smoothing the edges between the affected and healthy skin areas. Therefore, fractional laser rejuvenation has a more powerful and overall effect for stretch marks. The procedures are carried out with a course of 3-4 procedures with an interval of 1 month. Good and stable treatment results can be achieved by combining fractional rejuvenation with mesotherapy of stretch marks. The management of mesotherapeutic solutions can enhance the synthesis of collagen initiated by the fractional laser. This will provide a more consistent clinical outcome.
The treatment is performed under local anesthesia and is well tolerated by the patient. The recovery period takes 5-7 days and does not require special care, we recommend the use of the cream to accelerate the processes of epithelialization and moisturizing the skin.
No special preparation is required.
Recommendations after treatment
After the treatment, it is recommended to refrain from visiting the solarium, do not sunbathe during one month, use SPF 30+. The doctor will consult you more detail, depending treatment tactics chosen.
- violation of the integrity of the skin in the area of the proposed procedure
- tendency to scar
- impaired tissue regeneration
- severe somatic diseases
- systemic autoimmune diseases
Breastfeeding is a relative contraindication, but it is still better to wait for the restoration of menstrual function and hormonal background, since the tissues during pregnancy (feeding) have increased elasticity. Because of this, the efficiency of the procedures performed will be lower.
