Stretch marks are irregular bands of skin tissue that develop when your skin stretches rapidly and cannot heal properly. Although they are not a health concern, they may be a cosmetic concern if you have them. If they bother you, you most likely want information about your stretch mark removal treatment options. At Old Town Med Spa, we’ve done all the work for you and have found that PRP with fractionated laser treatments and/or PRP with microneedling can produce amazing results.
A Closer Look at Stretch Mark Removal
Cosmetic lasers and PRP therapy are able to treat a wide range of conditions, including stretch marks. During this treatment, we may direct a laser to transmit focused wavelengths of light under the surface of your skin in the treatment area. This energy is transformed into thermal energy that causes certain changes to deep layers of skin. PRP and microneedling can also be used for further benefits. Your body will respond by remodeling the treatment area to diminish stretch marks.
One advantage to undergoing a stretch mark removal procedure at our office is that the precision allows us to treat a very specific area. Surrounding skin tissue is left intact, so less healing time is necessary after your treatment. No one will likely know that you had anything done, but your results will build in the weeks and months after your treatment while your skin heals and remodels itself.
The Many Benefits of Stretch Mark Removal
As you may know all too well, when a person has stretch marks, their self-confidence can suffer. Rather than showing off smooth, blemish-free skin, they are forced to hide their stretch marks underneath jeans and other articles of clothing. After stretch mark removal, most people experience a boost in self-confidence. They no longer feel the need to cover up their abdomen, thighs, hips and other areas.
Another benefit of stretch mark removal is the procedure is entirely non-surgical. The treatments are designed to be quick and easy, even for clients with busy schedules. This is beneficial since a series of treatment sessions is usually required for optimal results.
