What are Stretch Marks

Posted on 28 Jul, 2015

What are Stretch Marks Stretch Marks skin disorders can appear anywhere on the body where the skin has been stretched, especially the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, thighs and buttocks. Many people suffering from stretch marks find that they are unable to wear certain types of clothing. If the situation is difficult to manage, people can find themselves becoming frustrated and even depressed by the state of their skin. Stretch marks for some people can fuel anxiety, depression and other emotional and psychological problems. Self-esteem and quality of life may also suffer. But there are no effective treatments available to treat skin disorders such as stretch marks.

Pregnant women aren’t alone in being susceptible. Adolescents having growth spurts and athletes, especially bodybuilders who undergo strenuous and repetitive exercise are also likely to get stretch marks. Harsh skincare products such as illegal lightening creams can also damage the skin and lead to the problem of stretch marks. We are able to treat ages 16 year’s +

The Treatment – what to expect

When you come to see us for your first treatment, the Laser Practitioner will fully explain the procedure to you, and ensure you are comfortable before proceeding with the treatment.

The Laser Treatment Clinic offers industry leading treatment for stretch marks with Marine Boost treatment. The Marine Boost treatment consist of  Advanced peel/Medical Microdermabrasion treatment with Marine Boost skincare. Y0ur skin will first be prepared with Marine Boost skincare. This sophisticated technology involves an advanced form of deeper skin exfoliation, which encourages skin rejuvenation, over the stretch marks which removes the effected superficial layers from the epidermis level, revealing the new skin beneath. You should feel no more than a sharp scratching sensation. The Laser Ultrasonic is then applied, accelerating the micro-circulation process, which helps to raise the active metabolism of the skin cells. The skin rejuvenates faster stimulating fresh young skin cells promoting new collagen growth, and the collagen remodels for smoother, firmer more even clear skin texture.

After the treatment, the treated area may have some blood spotting, and these may take about a week to heal. Inflammation (active redness) is a consequence of fibroblast collagen resulting in more elastic skin. Your treatment will finish with an application of the Marine Boost skincare. We highly recommend you use Marine Boost skincare during and after you complete your treatments to achieve and maintain optimum results. The advantage of this treatment is that it works in harmony with the skin, and respects the biological structure of the skin tissue and offers a safe alternative to harsh chemical peels and strong surgical lasers. Although it is rare you may experience reactions such as skin sensitivity and temporary pigmentation or other similar reactions during the course of your treatment and for some time afterwards. With repeated treatments you will notice a steady improvement in the skin appearance. The frequency of treatment is every 2 to 4 weeks.

Marine Boost treatment is usually very effective and can in most cases achieve a dramatic visual fading of the stretch marks within the first few treatments. We have found that on average most people require between 6 to 12 treatments for the optimum results however the results are individual in each case as everyone responds differently.
