Stretch marks are caused due to rapid stretching of skin that results into scars and discoloration of skin. There are many reasons which can lead to stretch marks such as rapid weight loss, rapid weight gain, excessive exercise, steroids, pregnancy, hormonal changes, puberty etc. Treatment includes medical management and procedures like collagen induction therapy and lasers.
A) Derma roller/ collagen induction therapy/ microneedling– A dermaroller is a hand held device with microneedles. . Before starting the procedure, we apply a topical numbing gel for 30 minutes, to the treatment area for optimal comfort. During the procedure, the needles of dermaroller, traumatically create pores in the dermis, which stimulate the release of growth factors and cytokines. The growth factors and cytokines in turn create a wound healing cascade by stimulating collagen, elastin, and neovascularization. Needling sessions are typically spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. During the procedure, we at Skinology – West Delhi, apply serums to the treated area, specific to your skin concerns, (hyaluronic acid, growth factors and skin boosters for antiaging); (vitamin C serums and skin enhancers for facial rejuvenation and glow); (vitamin E and rosehip oils for stretch marks); (collagen and elastin containing serums for acne scars).
B) Scar Treatment Laser– For treating stretch marks, we at Skinology, Rajouri Garden, use Fractional erbium fiber (ResurFX, Lumenis) laser. ResurFX laser employs the “only one pass” formula. ResurFX is effective and minimal time consuming. ResurFXutilizes an advanced scanner and a fiber laser of 1565 nm. This is a non invasive process carried out with the help of fractional laser technology. It is highly recommended as a reliable treatment for stretch marks because of less risk involved and no downtime. The microbeams penetrate deep causing regrowth of cells and collagen remodeling.
