Stretch marks are very common, in fact almost everybody you know has some form of stretch mark on their body. The laser stretch mark removal treatment at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors can help you get rid (results may vary for every person and its not guarenteed) of them. But first, let us know what exactly are stretch marks.
Any abrupt change in the body mass or structure can break and rupture the collagen and elastin in your skin. This brings out scar-like formations, which are completely external known as stretch marks. In general, when our skin changes by either stretching too quickly or shrinking too quickly, a stretch mark may develop at that site.
Stretch marks are not at all harmful to anyone and do not require any cosmetic treatment. But you may choose to control the spreading of stretch marks or get them removed for aesthetic reasons. They are generally transparent or light reddish in shade, but often they can get a dark purplish hue, which can be hideous to look at. This can affect your health and image. Often stretch marks fade with time.
All consultations with our expert laser doctors, nurses and dermal therapists are complimentary and obligation free.
Harnessing the power of your own platelets, your blood is taken, spun in a centrifuge, then reinjected into areas of problematic stretch marks.
This causes an intensive collagen stimulating reaction, which tightens the skin and improves the appearance of stretch marks.
Best used in combination with RF needling or fractional resurfacing laser.
