Stretch Mark Removal

Stretch marks are a common problem suffered by both men and women who have experienced weight gain or rapid weight loss.  No matter how hard you work in the gym, once you get stretch marks, they are nearly impossible to get rid of... until now. MicroRF's microneedling with radio frequency can reduce or even eliminate the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating cell growth beneath the skin’s surface, resulting in the production of fibroblasts and new collagen.  After several treatments, the stretch marks become narrower and the overall texture of the skin improves due to the new collagen production. Plasma FX is our newest treatment that is also used to treat a number of issues, including stretch marks. Plasma FX offers a very precise solution over the area being treated. Our provider uses a handheld device to literally trace over the stretch marks. This device creates a plasma arc 1 millimeter above the skin to create a microinjury to the epidermis, while also heating and disrupting the deeper dermis. This will create a scab-like appearance, but within a few days, they will fall off and reveal new, improved skin.

What causes stretch marks?

When someone gains weight whether it is from diet or pregnancy, the skin stretches beyond its normal size.  If the dermis expands too quickly, it can break or rupture which causes a wide depressed scar, known as striae or a stretch mark. If you are one of the many that has stretch marks and want the safest method to remove them, call us today to schedule an appointment with our experienced medical staff.
