STRETCH MARK AND SCAR TREATMENT AND REDUCTION
Stretch marks and scars appear as indented bands of lines on your skin. These lines are a different color and texture than your normal skin, and they range from purple to bright pink to off white. If you have unsightly stretch marks or scars, our skilled providers at Image Revolution Health and Medical Spa can provide you with stretch mark and scar removal treatments to reduce or remove these blemishes and improve the appearance of your skin. We welcome you to contact us for more information, and to set up your free consultation.
What Causes Stretch Marks or Scars?
Stretch marks are formed when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Although the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it’s overstretched, the normal production of collagen (the major protein that makes up the connective tissue in your skin) and elastin is disrupted. As a result, scar-like stretch marks are formed. Leading cause of stretch marks include:
- Rapid weight gain or loss
- Hormonal changes especially during puberty
- Corticosteroid creams, lotions, and medications
- Medical conditions
How Are Stretch Marks Treated?
Stretch mark removal requires multiple sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Depending on the severity, location, and type of stretch marks, Dr Alam and Dr McGuire will provide a treatment plan for best results. With options such as lasers and microneedling with RF (Radiofrequency) you will see an improvement with each subsequent treatment.
We are confident that our expertise and our advanced technologies can reduce or remove your stretch marks and help you achieve the aesthetic results you desire.
