Stretch mark reduction treatment
Stretch mark resurfacing treatment will restore a more even skin tone and texture to affected areas. The red, purple or silvery lines left behind when skin tears due to sudden growth are known as stretch marks. They occur most commonly during puberty, pregnancy, and when you gain weight rapidly. Red at first, they then fade to form an unsightly patchwork of silver lines. The good news is you don’t have to live with them.
Our Newmarket aesthetic clinic offers two methods to combat stretch marks. SkinPen is a handheld microneedling device used to alert the body’s natural repair system to your stretch mark damaged skin. It signals your body to create fresh new skin tissue in order to repair itself. This is best suited to new stretch marks that are still red. For more severe or older stretch marks that have faded to silvery tone, we use the Venus Viva device which uses radio-frequency technology to encourage the skin to create new skin tissue, and promotes resurfacing.
