These three are the most feasible and effective methods to get rid of stretch marks. Stretch marks removal is one of the laser treatment in jaipur that we do at alcs.
Causes of Stretch Marks
When the skin stretches in an unusual way, it loses its elasticity. As a result, the topmost layer of skin shows stretch marks because the second skin layer, or the skin beneath the top-skin-layer, breaks down. In short, these marks are caused because of loss of elastic fiber and collagen in the second, deeper layer of our skin. Collagen is a protein rich compound that is responsible for rejuvenating and repairing the human skin. Stretch marks can usually be seen on thighs, abdomen, arms, knees and waist.
What Situations Can Cause Stretch Marks?
Pregnancy – This is one of the main reasons for these marks. The skin of a pregnant woman stretches as per the natural process and results in scar-like marks on the skin called stretch marks.
Sudden Weight Loss or Gain – If you acquire weight suddenly, your skin stretches to accommodate the available weight. Thus, the breaking of dermis leads to the appearance of stretch marks. Also, when you lose weight quickly, your skin becomes saggy and the tearing of dermis leads to stretch marks.
Puberty – Growing children have often stretch marks on their knees, arms, elbows etc. because the bone-size increases and the skin, covering those bones, stretches to get adjusted according to the new size of bones.
Stretch Mark Treatment Methods at Alcs Jaipur
Tummy Tuck for Stretch Marks Removal
The stubborn post pregnancy marks on abdomen can be removed effectively through tummy tuck surgery. This is a procedure in which the extra skin on tummy is removed, the abdominal wall is pulled in and the waist muscles are also pulled in towards the middle stomach area, making way for an improved tummy shape. The stretch marks are also reduced to a significant extent in this process.
This method is recommended mainly for the women who have got strong post-pregnancy stretch marks on their abdomen.
Microdermabrasion for Stretch Marks Removal
In this process, the dead cells on the top layer of skin are removed with the help of a hand-held device. The removal of dead cells encourages the growth of new cells, giving rise to a fresh and glowing skin. Microdermabrasion is often not advised for stretch marks as it gives lesser results in comparison of other medical remedies for stretch marks.
Laser Stretch Mark Removal
One of the most popular as well as effective ways to get rid of stretch marks is stretch mark laser removal. Just as the name suggests, this method involves penetrating lasers in the skin to remove stretch marks.
During this process, the collagen is repaired, damaged blood vessels are closed up and skin fibers are mended to get a better texture and elasticity in the skin. Undoubtedly, the laser treatment for stretch marks is quite expensive in comparison of other methods but it is also worth spending the money as it gives optimal results in quick time.
Disclaimer: Results may vary significantly from patient to patient due to individual differences.
During this stretch mark treatment, lasers emit strong pulses of light of single wavelength or frequency on the target (skin with stretch marks). Depending on your skin condition, frequency, duration, and wavelengths of laser light is varied to achieve desired results.
There are two common types of lasers often used in stretch mark laser removal- fractional laser therapy and pulsed dye laser. The type of laser used will depend on the type of stretch marks you have on your skin.
How Laser Stretch Mark Removal Works
Light from the laser causes small “injuries” on the targeted skin with stretch marks usually in the size of the diameter of a hair shaft. During this process, skin without marks or healthy skin remains unaffected by lasers. Healthy skin creates a response to laser action in surrounding skin with stretch marks and begins the healing process. As a result of this process, collagen and elastin are stimulated for growth paving way for new skin. Soon, old skin with stretch marks is replaced with new, healthy skin without any marks.
