Stretch marks are quite common, and yet, women usually don’t like talking about them or showing them off. Trying to soften them and eliminate them can be challenging, but one cosmetic treatment has been gaining popularity for its simple and effective technology. Microneedling rejuvenates more than just your face and neck. The treatment has proven to be successful against stretch marks and offers one of the most natural methods of creating softer, tighter, smoother skin. Microneedling is all about your body using its inner healing mechanism to create great-looking results on the outside.
Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling technology features a device containing a series of tiny needles that create micro punctures in the top layer of your skin. This action triggers your body’s natural power to heal itself by stimulating the production of fresh collagen and elastin. Both are responsible for giving the skin its firm foundation.
It is a safe and painless procedure, and it requires little if any downtime. Redness and minor swelling are common at the treatment site. Topicals like aloe vera may be recommended for soothing hydration as the site heals.
Simple Prepping Beforehand
Our aesthetic specialist will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to ensure your comfort. Then, the vibrating pen-like device will push along the stretch mark lines creating numerous tiny holes on one pass. The beauty tool can break up the tough, stringy fibers that create this scar tissue. As the tissue channels are opened up, your body kicks in to stimulate its natural regeneration response. No lateral trauma is made to the skin.
Clients rave about the treatment and observe after about a week that their stretch marks are starting to fade at a noticeable rate.
Microneedling is excellent at smoothing out uneven skin texture, filling in fine lines and reducing the discoloration that comes with pigmentation issues. That is why the treatment holds promise when you’re dealing with stretch marks and their varying pigmentations of pink, gray, or purple.
Aesthetic experts recommend a series of microneedling treatments for optimum results. For instance, your stretch marks can see significant improvement with four to six sessions that are spaced four weeks apart.
