Stretch marks are a type of scar that appear as narrow red bands on your skin. If you have them, you probably know. While these lines can sometimes fade over time, there are certain people with persistent stretch marks that refuse to fade without medical intervention. This skin concern is not a health risk and you can live with it, but if you prefer to wear clothing that may expose your abdomen or other areas where streaky lines appear, you may want to consider treatment.
This skin concern is most commonly associated with pregnancy but can occur anytime skin stretches or shrinks very fast. Rapid weight gain, rapid weight loss and rapid muscle growth are all common causes. Even growth spurts from puberty can lead to this issue. What happens is that the collagen and elastin in our skin, which keeps it stretchy and resilient, ruptures due to the sudden change, causing marks to appear as it heals.
We have multiple devices that have proven very effective in treating stretch marks. One option is TempSure Firm™. This is a radiofrequency device that safely heats up the skin to stimulate a healing response that can help fade scars, including streaky lines. We can also offer our Potenza treatment, which combines radiofrequency with microneedling to stimulate collagen production and restore a more even skin tone and texture.
