Everyone from young, old, male and female has suffered from or are suffering from stretch marks.
Although they are completely harmless and are not a health risk many people with stretch marks find them unattractive. They can appear anywhere on the body with the most common areas being the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, thighs, hips, and buttocks.
Stretch marks are one of the main reasons people get skin needling.
You may think that stretch mark creams are the solution to removing stretch marks as they claim to melt away into the skin and ‘dissolve’ the stretch mark. However it goes deeper than that.
Stretch marks are a scar that develops in the deeper layers of the dermis and when there is stress, stretching and strain in the area the collagen in the skin breaks down causing marks on the surface known as stretch marks.
Skin Needling & LLLT (Low Intensity Laser Therapy) penetrates the underlying layers of the skin where these stretch marks develop and triggers the body’s natural wound healing response within the skin, producing and distributing new collagen in the treatment area. Each Skin Needling and LLLT treatment encourages this production and distribution of new collagen that will progressively fill in the stretch mark making it less noticeable and in some cases disappear altogether.
At the Australian Laser and Skin Clinic we have helped many people with stretch mark removal through skin needling over the last 20 years.
We will access your skin to determine the right solution for your stretch marks.
