The formation of stretch marks take place when our skin starts to grow at a rapid pace but the elasticity is low. They are first seen as white/pink lines and occur when there is a drastic change in muscle mass, pregnancy or tremendous weight gain. The various stretch marks treatment include:
Laser Treatment Methods
There is no doubt that laser technology is an important part of effective stretch marks treatment. Patients do not feel any kind of discomfort. This treatment uses radio waves that work into the different layers of the skin and stimulate it so that the skin starts to grow and gains strength at the same time. As a patient, you may be required to go in for multiple sessions of treatment to get rid of stretch marks.
If you do not mind putting up with a bit of pain then you could go in for surgical methods too. A method such as an abdominoplasty can help to get rid of stretch marks permanently. This method is also known a tummy tuck as the doctor tightens the tummy by removing the scarred areas. It takes time to recover from this surgery but the results are permanent. Now there are a couple of things that you should remember about this surgery is that the number of marks that can be removed will depend on the location of them. The ability of the body to heal well is another important thing that you should keep in mind before you go in for this stretch marks treatment.
Dermabrasion and Chemical Peels
The chemical peels utilize substances such as retinoic acid, beta hydroxy and alpha hydroxyl to remove the topmost layer of the skin. To remove more layers of the skin more chemical has to be applied. Dermabrasion uses aluminum oxide to eliminate the top layer of the skin. This stretch marks treatment removes the scars completely but in some cases, it may not completely remove the stretches but make them less visible too and this also good.
Stretch marks removal treatment utilized many needles from a gun to administer minerals, vitamins, medications, amino acids into the tissue of the skin to remove stretch marks. The substance so administered help to eliminate toxins from within the body and promote the growth of healthy tissues and to promote collagen and elastin to keep stretch marks at bay.
As mentioned above the complete success of any stretch marks removal treatment is the intensity of the problem and the location of the marks. Doctors will refrain from operating on the delicate parts of the body.
