Stretch Mark Removal

Stretch Mark Removal In Mumbai & Delhi, India

Striae, commonly called Stretch Marks, are lines or streaks on the skin, which can be pink, purple or white in color (depending on their age), which appear when the inner skin layer is stretched thin and loses its elasticity. The most commonly affected areas are the breasts, thighs, stomach, hips and back.

Stretch marks come about as a direct result of the skin getting stretched due to rapid growth , such as during puberty , or weight gain as seen during pregnancy. Although the skin has a fair degree of elasticity, such stretching is bound to leave prominent marks. A lot of pregnant women, in particular, experience stretch marks in different areas especially in the latter half of their terms. Normally, these marks fade over time, and there are a number of treatments that can help in this case.

The following treatments are some of the options available to improve the appearance of stretch marks:

Derma roller: Medical Skin Needling or derma roller therapy is also called Collagen Induction Therapy or Micro-Needling.

Microdermabrasion: This type of treatment makes use of a hand-held device that blows crystals onto skin, abrading or “polishing” the skin’s surface in the process.

Pulsed dye laser therapy: Used at non-ablative wavelengths of light, this type of laser therapy remodels underlying skin (dermis) by promoting the growth of collagen and elastin.

Fractional laser: Similar to pulsed dye laser therapy, this laser treatment also uses wavelengths of light to stimulate new growth of collagen and elastin.

FAQ

How long does each session take?

A treatment session lasts no longer than 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. A visible improvement is usually being noticeable after each such sitting.

How many sessions are required?

6 – 8 treatment sessions are considered necessary in general to produce effective results and reduce stretch marks to an acceptable appearance. Results will continue to improve over time through better skin texture achieved by generation of new collagen deep in the dermis. Detailed individual needs and duration of treatment will be discussed during your consultation.

Is stretch mark treatment painful?

Some people report experiencing a slight “twanging” sensation, similar to flicking a small rubber band against the skin during this treatment. It is painless otherwise. Any discomfort is within an acceptable level.

How quickly will I see results?

Significant improvement is routinely after just 2 treatments, but final results may not be apparent for a few months. Clinical studies indicate an average improvement of between 51% and 75% in the appearance of stretch marks in the initial stages.

Are there any side effects?

Some redness or skin lightening may appear, but this generally disappears within a few hours.

What is the recovery period?

Since the treatment is non-invasive, virtually no recovery time is necessary; you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. It is however recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after laser vein treatment.

Can stretch marks be prevented?

The application of massage and cream may result in fewer stretch marks appearing, but it has not been proved to be effective in stopping the occurrence of stretch marks altogether.

How common are stretch marks?

75% to 90% of women develop stretch marks of some degree during pregnancy, usually during the third trimester when the skin tends to be subjected to higher levels of stretching forces. Teenage pregnancy poses higher risk of severe stretch marks. Stretch marks may fade over time, but, without outside intervention; such as laser treatment; generally do not disappear completely.

Can men get stretch marks?

Yes. Men can also develop stretch marks if they are overweight, or if they work out a lot and build muscle mass that stretches the skin and produces a tear in the dermis, or even if they have lost weight after being overweight. Stretch marks in men have also been linked to the use of steroids.
