Stretch marks are caused by excessive stretching of the skin which breaks down the inner structure of the skin and leaves lines that can appear red, white, or shiney. These marks can be found on all areas of the body from the ankles to the shoulders. We have a few modalities that can treat these relatively quickly and easily.
Controlled microchannels in the skin cause the fibroblast cells in the subcutaneous layer to produce collagen and elastin structures to repair the surface and look of the skin from the inside out. This method involves controlled damage and then time for the body to naturally heal itself and rebuild the structure, so there will be visible differences in the area for a week post-procedure. Usually 4-8 sessions are recommended for optimal results on stretched skin.
Painless and non-invasive, our radiofrequency skin tightening sessions require no downtime. These sessions take 30 minutes for each area being treated and can be repeated once a week. 8 treatment sessions are recommended initially, with 1-2 touchup sessions each year. Packages available.
The hydrophores in the skin are targeted by Intense Pulsed Light which causes structure damage to the area and signals the body to heal the area by increasing cell turnover and growth. This treatment is recommended for discoloured stretch marks. The treatment is painless with no downtime and should be repeated every 4-6 weeks depending on the area being treated. 6-8 treatments initially, and a single touch up each year makes this option good for low maintenance.
