Stretch marks are silvery white lines that appear on the skin’s surface due to stretching beyond its limit. When the skin is stretched too much, it loses its elasticity. This causes the skin to have stretch marks on the top layer of the skin. The disruption in the production of collagen and a loss of elastin are the main reasons behind the appearance of stretch marks.

Many people experience stretch marks at some point in life. They can be caused by various factors such as pregnancy, weight gain or loss, or rapid growth during puberty. They can often be frustrating and challenging to treat. However, with advancements in technology and skincare, effective treatments are now available that can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Laser and Skin Group offers a client-focused bespoke approach to stretch mark treatments, all delivered in a caring and supportive environment. Our highly experienced and skilled team of aesthetic practitioners and doctors deliver expert care and excellent results using the latest technology.

One of our most recommended stretch mark treatments is Dermapen Microneedling and/or Microdermabrasion.

Micro-needling for stretch marks:

Micro-needling (also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy) is a safe and non-invasive treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production to promote natural skin healing, resulting in a revitalised and healthy glow. It is an excellent treatment for removing stretch marks and many other skin issues, such as signs of ageing, acne, open pores, and hair loss.

The Dermapen Microneedling device is shaped like a pen and has tiny needles penetrating the stretched skin area. This treatment creates mild puncture wounds that stimulate the natural healing response and promote skin cell renewal. While the skin is repairing, the production of collagen and elastin is increased, plumping the area and reducing stretch marks, wrinkles, scarring, and sun damage. Microneedling minimises the appearance of stretch marks by improving the skin’s texture and radiance.

Before and After:

Dermapen Microneedling is a revolutionary skin treatment that can help people achieve smoother, unblemished, radiant skin, boosting their confidence in their appearance. Due to its natural skin healing process, Dermapen Microneedling offers visible improvements and can last up to 24 months.

Key Benefits of Dermapen Microneedling

  • Non-invasive and safe skin treatment for stretch mark removal.
  • No surgery is required.
  • A natural healing process that stimulates collagen production and promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
  • Positive results provide radiant and smooth skin.
  • Lasts up to 24 months.

Microdermabrasion for stretch marks:

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that can be performed on both the face and body without causing discomfort. Results can be seen from the first session, and with each subsequent treatment, the intensity can be increased to reach deeper layers of the skin. This treatment aims to remove acne scarring, lift pigmentation, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

During the quick and painless microdermabrasion treatment, a handheld wand with abrasive crystals is passed over the damaged skin while a vacuum collects the dead skin particles. The vacuum stimulates blood flow, leading to the skin’s rejuvenation and encouraging its production of collagen and elastin.

Before and After:

The severity of stretch marks varies by the individual’s skin type, and treatment may be required every few weeks or months. The results provide smoother-looking skin and fewer stretch marks, but regular treatments are recommended to maintain the appearance. Our professional skin therapist can advise you on achieving the best results.

Key Benefits of Microdermabrasion

  • No surgery is required.

  • Clients can see results from the first treatment.
  • The blood flow is stimulated to encourage the natural production of collagen and elastin.

Various alternative treatments are available on the market, such as cocoa butter creams, retinol, and hyaluronic acid. These can be used at home but often do not provide the desired results that qualified skincare aesthetic practitioners and doctors can achieve.
