Stretch marks may occur through growth spurts, quick weight loss or gain, or post-pregnancy. It is a common issue that the media advertises as entirely removable. However, through thorough research, we have discovered that there is no way of ensuring complete eradication. Nonetheless, we can drastically improve their appearance at Clear Medical with a combination of treatments.
What causes stretch marks?
Stretch marks are medically termed as ‘Striae’. Common knowledge is that stretch marks are due to skin expansion and contraction in a short time. This, however, is not always the case. Some individuals may have a genetic predisposition to ‘striae’, whereas some may not. Some individuals have a predisposition by their genetic makeup to develop stretch marks regardless of skin expansion or contracting. In effect, there has to be a malfunction in the mechanism within the renewal stage of skin cell synthesis, which influences their development. Although stretch marks are a common skin issue, scientists do not yet know the exact cause and are still investigating them. Many people have shared their ideas and stories with us concerning this issue over the years. A popular account is that, back in the day, the elders advised against scratching the skin as that would cause the appearance of stretch marks. Could this be another mother’s tale that has some fact to it?
Stretch Mark Miracle Cures!
Unfortunately, there is no proof of a way to eradicate stretch marks completely. Also, no preventative evidence of successful treatments or application of topical substances is widely available. Nevertheless, a vast improvement in the appearance of the skin is possible with treatment and correct care. Inconclusive theories specify hyaluronic acid, tretinoin, and many other marketed drugs show progress, yet promotion legislation does not prevent consumers from being misled.
Stretch mark removal treatment involves the promotion of the restoration phase when a wound heals. Following this, the repair of the skin prevents or improves abnormal scarring. At Clear Medical, Skin Rejuvenation and Microneedling are the best treatments to accomplish this. These treatments trigger the regression of blood vessels and the fibroblasts (cells that produce connective tissue) within the scar. Thus halting further deposition of connective tissue.
What should I notice after my treatments?
Rejuvenating treatments trigger new cell production, influencing the skin tone within the stretch marks. As a consequence, the stretch marks will become less apparent. Treatments stimulate collagen and elastin production and smooth the skin within the treatment. We perform countless treatments with success; with our experience, we can safely say that stretch marks can be drastically reduced to give you the confidence you seek.
Consultation before treatment
We initially arrange an over-the-phone skin consultation, and then at a face-to-face consultation, more information is given regarding the suitability and potential success rate of the stretch mark removal treatment. Your treatment may be a course of Microneedling and/or Skin Rejuvenation alongside a recommended care regime. It is also beneficial to the success of the treatment if aftercare is carried out, supplemented by a healthy diet and lifestyle.
