We are pleased to have a variety of resurfacing and tightening treatments including stretch mark treatment. Stretch marks are extremely common but can cause some of our patients to feel insecure. Our primary goal is to make you feel as beautiful as you are on the inside. Stretch mark treatments can make these insecurities vanish and help your self-esteem grow immensely. Below we have gathered everything you may need to know about stretch marks and stretch mark treatments!
When your skin stretches, you get what we call stretch marks. These marks look like streaks and can run down areas including your hips, arms, buttocks, breasts, and abdomen. There are numerous reasons why you may develop stretch marks. These reasons include:
• Weight gain
• Weight loss
• Rapid growth
• Going through puberty
• Marfan syndrome
• Taking corticosteroids
• Using steroids
• Intense exercise
• Cushing’s syndrome
In most cases, stretch marks can and will fade on their own. Unfortunately, they may not fully disappear without medical intervention. There are three proven methods to reduce the appearance of stretch marks:
1. Retinoid Cream
Retinoid creams can be applied to stretch marks to encourage collagen production. Collagen is the protein in your skin that provides your skin with structure and can fix damaged tissues in your skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to stimulate collagen production and works on all types of skin complexion. No matter how light or dark your skin pigmentation is, microneedling can be effective.
3. Light and Laser Therapies
Light and laser treatments work for lighter pigmented skin. Both laser and light therapies promote skin elasticity and stimulate new collagen. Collagen is the key to fighting unwanted stretch marks.
Alma Opus is a special device used for stretch mark treatment. This technology uses plasma energy to help tighten and resurface your skin. Opus plasma treatments are great because they cause less inflammation compared to other laser treatments. They can manipulate your body to naturally start healing your stretch marks. There is also no recovery time for Alma Opus because it is much less invasive and aggressive compared to other treatment options. This type of plasma treatment will only take about 30-45 minutes out of your day. If you’re looking for quick, long lasting results with no pain or disruption in your day to day life, Alma Opus is a wonderful choice.
If you are in general good health, you will be able to undergo Alma Opus treatment. During your consultation, you will be asked questions about your medical history and skin condition to determine if plasma treatment will help you achieve the results you’re looking for. If you’re dealing with the following issues, this type of treatment could benefit you:
• You have noticeable stretch marks that won’t fade
• Your stretch marks are causing excessive itching
• Retinol creams haven’t worked for you
• You’re looking for a nonsurgical treatment
• You have lighter pigmentation
• Your stretch marks are shallow
