Are you dealing with noticeable stretch marks caused by significant weight gain or pregnancy? Stretch marks are a common cosmetic complaint and develop due to the stretching of skin beyond its normal range.

Stretch marks are scars that form in the middle layer of skin, and like scars from injuries, they do not go away on their own. Their formation is an cosmetic concern that can negatively affect your appearance, self-esteem and confidence making a person feel unattractive.

Many people living with stretch marks would like to correct the problem without resorting to expensive surgical procedures or other complicated procedures. Micro-needling offers an effective, minimally-invasive technique for safely reducing the appearance of stretch marks.

Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a process where a technician uses a device covered in several fine needles over stretch marks. By creating minor injuries where skin has stretch marks, microneedling encourages your body to repair damaged skin through the increased production of collagen and elastin.

Since this is a minimally invasive treatment, you won’t have to worry about setting aside a significant amount of time for recovery. We will discuss ways that you can care for your skin and ensure the best results after treatment.

More than one microneedling treatment is generally required for stretch marks. Your technician will develop an individual treatment plan that considers the severity of your stretch marks. You can probably expect to need five or more treatments with intervals between treatments of 4-6 weeks. We recommend getting regular microneedling treatments to help you deal with specific skin issues and maintain radiant looking skin.
