Stretch Marks Treatment Options:
As our hormones shift and change in our body they interact with our skin and may result in stretch marks. Pregnancy, birth control pills, rapid weight gain or loss, topical steroid creams and rapid growing all cause stretch marks.
Greenspring Rejuvenation offers the only laser that is FDA approved for stretch marks. This laser can reduce red stretch marks, diminish white marks, improve skin texture. Stretch marks can be significantly improved, but they are not completely removed. A series of treatment sessions are usually needed to obtain the best results.
Treatment of Red Stretch Marks
When the stretch marks are red, lasers can be highly effective at reducing the redness and stopping some of the inflammation. Lasers also induce collagen growth which improves the appearance of the skin.
Laser for White Stretch Marks
Greenspring offers the only laser that is FDA approved for these stretch marks. This laser is highly effective for stretch marks that are white or tissue-like in texture. There is some risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in darker individuals that may take some time to fade.
The multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal response in the tissue which causes skin tightening and reduces the appearance of stretch marks.
Stretch Mark Treatment Questions
Does stretch mark treatment hurt?
Though you always find an individual who has a lower threshold for pain, most patients find laser treatment very tolerable. Very effective topical anesthetics are available when needed.
What is the recovery time for Stretch Mark treatment?
Recovery from laser treatment is generally brief. Redness and swelling may last for several days. There is no downtime. You may resume your usual activities immediately.
How can I prevent stretch marks?
One thing you can do during pregnancy or times of weight gain is to apply topical creams like alpha-hydroxy acids or Retin-A medicines. These topical medicines can be helpful in curbing the onset of stretch marks in the first place. Many people believe that topical Vitamin E, emu oil, or aloe vera gel may help.
