About stretch marks
Stretch marks are also know as striae are usually a slightly red or purple shade to begin with, fading with time to silvery white lines. Stretch marks can be visible on body parts including the tummy, thighs, hips, breasts, upper arms, and lower back.
Stretch marks are long, narrow streaks, stries or lines that develop on skin which is different from the normal skin. This streaks are forms when there is aconstant stretch, the layer tears, leaving stretch marks. Generally seen during pregancy, weight gain, or during puberty, this type of scaring happens when the skin cannot bounce back after a period of intense growth.
Extreme weight loss can also make stretch marks more visible and some stretch mark arise as a result of acute trauma affecting the skin. This is caused by tearing of the dermis, the resilient middle tissue layer that helps the skin retains its shape.
Approach towards stretch marks
- Super laser treatment
- Collagen induction therapy
Super laser treatments are advanced technology using a beam of light removes thin layeers of skin around the stretch marks. In thhis high- energy ultraviolet laser light to disrupt the molecular bonds in the skin tissues, which causes the tissue to disintegrate in a process know as ablation. Once laser stretch mark removal is complete, the treated area will heal quickly, and new o’skin of healthy skin will form.
Immediately following laser stretch marks removal, the affected area will be red and tender, because o’skin of scarred skin have been removed and new skin is being grown, but these are temporary.
Super laser stretch mark removal is highly effective, in most cases is dependent on the prevalence and age of the stretch marks. Older and more serious stretch more difficult to treat only with laser it needs combination of treatments, even a series of laser treatments may only reduce the visibility of stretch marks.
Mesotherapy is a non surgical cosmetic technique, where medication is injected into the mesoderm (the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin). These microinjections consists of pharmaceutical and plant extracts, vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and other ingredients tailored specifically for each patient to optimize results. The power to reconstruct the connective tissue by stimulating the scarring processes. The strong action on e.C.M indicated after stretch marks. Here in our o’skin clinic, elasthase is used for strech marks which contains the three most effective substances know that they are needed for real results. The mesococktail for stretch mark are elastin, dmae,marin plasma, organic silicon.
The results are skin elasticity and reconstruction of cutaneous architecture.
Microdermabrasion is a effective in reducing the stretch marks. Aluminum oxide resurfacing has proved method of skin resurfacing. It induces epidermal signal transduction pathways that are associated with remodeling of the dermal matrix. Microdermabrasion appears to set in motion a cascade of molecular events capable os causing dermal remodeling and repair. We here in o’skin clinic desing the microdermabrsion with combination other treatments for about 10- 20 sesssions depends on the older the stretch mark is, with interval of not less than 1 month.
Collagen induction therapy is the fractional micro needling process with the device called dermaroller or dermapen which stimulates collage production and promotes healthier, more resilient skin. As this is very ideal for stretch mark treatment in which results becoming apparent in little as in three weeks. Longer term collagen remodelling occurs after 1 month at which point dramatic improvements in skin texture in can be seen.
Chemical peeling is performing on papillary dermis-level chemexfoliation with supportive to the other treatments, although it is also stimulates collagen production by fibroblasts and to increase their proliferation. This mechanism can be useful for stretch marks. O’skin specialized team of doctors will design the peel depends on the type of stretch marks like glycolic , tca depends on the older the stretch mark.
