Here at The Laser Treatment Clinic, we understand how much distress stretch marks can cause. We treat thousands of stretch mark cases every year and have developed an all natural combination treatment programme to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

In this blog article, we will take you through some of the common causes of stretch marks and what our combination treatment plan involves.

Causes of stretch marks

Stretch marks are caused by increased hormone production, as well as excessive or quick weight gain and growth spurts. Although they are most commonly associated with pregnancy, they are also a common feature of adolescence and affect both men and women. Women are more prone to stretch marks on the breast, buttocks, thighs and upper arms; and men are more prone to them on their back, buttocks and thighs.

Thankfully, The Laser Treatment Clinic are able to offer an all natural combination treatment programme that effectively reduces the appearance of stretch marks.

Medical Collagen Induction Therapy

Medical Collagen Induction Therapy works by using sterile micro-needles to puncture and penetrate the skin, creating micro-skin channels that stimulate the skin’s natural ability to heal and promotes the production of new collagen. It stimulates the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodelilng of collagen and elastin. When the skin heals it restores the contours of your skin’s surface.

Marine Peel Treatment

Marine Peel Treatment is an all natural skin rejuvenation alternatives to toxic chemical and glycolic peels. They use essential marine and botanical actives, found in marine algae and herbs, that work with the skin to soothe and repair. The actives used for stretch mark removal will differ based on your skin type and severity of scars.

Unlike chemical based exfoliation methods, Marine Peel Treatment is natural. Exfoliation methods involving chemical substances or synthetic abrasives can cause burning and irritation, during and after treatments. Marine Peel Treatment produces fast results compared to traditional glycolic peels so another good reason to choose the all natural option.

When you combine both the Medical Collagen Induction Therapy and Marine Peel Treatments, it produces powerful results for your stretch marks. The Collagen Induction Therapy creates micro-skin channels and promotes the production of collagen, whilst the Marine Peel Treatment rejuvenates the skin,  improves the repair rate and gives your skin that natural healthy glow.
