How can I treat my stretch marks?
SkinPen microneedling is a unique technology that stimulates collagen and elastin in the skin. Microneedling can be combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to provide the ultimate stretch mark treatment. Additionally, microneedling helps minimize the appearance of pores and scars, and helps correct an uneven skin tone.
Why do people get stretch marks?
Stretch marks occur because of rapid stretching of your skin. Some common causes of stretch marks include:
- Weight gain
- Growth spurts
How is this stretch mark procedure performed?
We conduct microneedling treatments for stretch marks in 60 minutes, First, we will anesthetize (numb) the skin and then cleanse the area to be treated thoroughly. Then, your plasma will be harvested and processed. Once the PRP is ready, microneedling will be done, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), may will be applied for deeper penetration, which is especially beneficial for those with stretch marks or scars.
What should I expect after microneedling with prp?
After your microneedling treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness for a day. It can take around 1 – 2 months to see your final results as the collagen and elastin levels increase gradually. We recommend that you schedule about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for long-lasting results.
