Raise your hand if you have stretch marks!
We’re guessing there are a lot of hands out there. As much as 80 percent of the population can say they wear stretch marks on their abs, sides, shoulders, breasts, back, thighs, buttocks… If you are one of the many and wish to remove these stripes and streaks from your skin, then there are effective treatments to consider.
Facts of Life
Stretch marks can appear when you gain or lose weight rapidly. You can thank puberty, pregnancy, hormones and quick fluctuations in weight for these little reminders. As well, corticosteroid creams, lotions and ointments – used to treat skin conditions, arthritis, asthma, allergies, etc. – can inhibit the skin’s ability to stretch and “bounce back,” thus resulting in stretch marks.
Treatments for Life
Stretch marks happen. Until only recently, they truly were just facts of life to which we must resign ourselves. Fortunately, technology is catching up with our needs. The following techniques will help you fight stretch marks – and win:
Dermapen: Collagen and elastin are the proteins that give your skin the resiliency it needs to stretch. Dermapen is a microneedling technique that prompts the body to begin producing more of these vital substances. This gives the skin the ability to flex when stretched; it also helps erase those silvery marks you may already have.
ULTRAcel: This effect treatment uses Radiofrequency Microneedling to stimulate your skins collagen and elastin. This prompts the skins natural healing process, making it a wonderful treatment for stretch marks and scarring.
