Stretch Marks Causes
Stretch marks can mar your appearance after pregnancy or weight loss, causing discoloration in the skin and in some cases, long recesses in the skin that produce uneven skin texture. For many individuals, stretch marks detract from their self-confidence enough to prevent them from participating in such activities as swimming in order to hide their unattractive stretch marks.
Post-Pregnancy Stretch Marks
For new moms suffering from post-partum blues, along with the sleep deprivation and tension of raising an infant, the final blow is to look in the mirror and see unsightly stretch marks marring their breasts, belly, buttocks, hips, and/or thighs. Depending on your skin tone, these stretch marks may be quite visible, as some may appear dark purple, red, or brown in color, while others may have a silvery hue and a raised or indented texture. Fortunately, stretch marks following pregnancy may be easily treated by various means.
Post Weight Loss Stretch Marks
While losing weight may contribute to an improvement in your appearance, the downside of this process is the fact that, for many individuals, dramatic weight loss also produces stretch marks, which detract from the body’s new shape and size.
Anti-Stretch Mark Procedures
Among our most widely used treatments to remove stretch marks are the following:
Nanofractional Radiofrequency Resurfacing with Venus Viva™
This resurfacing treatment performed using the Venus Viva™ uses highly focused radio frequency energy to gently lift off the skin’s outer layer, along with any imperfections that it may contain, such as stretch marks or discoloration. Laser stretch mark removal, RF Skin Resurfacing, also triggers the body to increase its natural production of collagen, which produces continual enhancements in your skin’s tone and texture for several weeks following treatment.
Sculptra® injections may be used to fill in dented areas in stretch marks and thicken the skin in the treatment site, making it less prone to striating.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
One of the most successful treatments for stretch marks is Platelet-Rich-Plasma or PRP Therapy, which uses platelet-rich-plasma drawn from the patient’s own blood, and may also be used on any area of the body to improve tone, elasticity, and firmness in the skin, filling in wrinkles and dents in the process. PRP therapy may also be used in combination with other treatment options such as microneedling to optimize results.
