Stretch Marks

The science bit

What are Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks can appear after you’ve lost or gained weight, and men and women of every age can suffer from them. Women often notice stretch marks after pregnancy but they can happen anywhere on the body where the skin has been stretched. Having said that, the most common places we see stretch marks are the places where fat is stored:

  • Stomach and abdomen
  • Breasts
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Shoulders

Our experienced team of dedicated professionals are highly trained to support you, provide good advice and perform treatments that’ll help reduce the appearance of stretch marks across every common problem area.

Some Of Our Most Popular Treatments For Stretch Marks

Dermal Roller / Dermapen for stretch marks

A natural skin regeneration and scar repair therapy, Dermal Roller/Dermapen is an innovative micro-needling technique that works to stimulate the skin to repair itself. This non-surgical treatment stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally, leaving you with smoother skin, reduced-size pores and more even pigmentation.

Fractora for stretch marks

Revolutionary Fractora treatment involves micro-needling with radio-frequency, a non-invasive technique that stimulates the repair of damaged tissues like scars and stretch marks. The procedure doesn’t cause scarring nor does it change the natural pigmentation of the skin. In fact it’s widely used to help solve skin pigmentation problems.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)  for stretch marks

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is a technique that uses your own growth factors or hormones, re-targeting them to a specific area of concern to encourage the repair and regeneration of the skin.

PRP therapy produces long-lasting effects with little chance of an allergic reaction, because the platelets come from your own blood. It’s a highly effective treatment for rejuvenating the skin and reducing the signs of stretch marks and scars.

Carboxytherapy for Stretch Marks

Carboxytherapy is a treatment that uses carbon dioxide to rid the skin of problem stretch marks, cellulite and scars. The procedure involves injecting Carbon Dioxide just under the surface of the skin using a fine needle, which effectively smoothes the skin and reduces fat.

If, like many people, you want to dramatically reduce the appearance of your stretch marks, carboxytherapy is a safe, natural treatment that has been proven to significantly improve them.  It’s often used in conjunction with other treatments to create the best results.

Retin A (Tretinoin) for Stretch Marks

Retinol  is a well known treatment for anti-ageing. A medical grade Retin A called Tretinoin is used to make a topical cream, one that you apply to the skin. This can improve the texture of the skin and in particular help with white stretch marks. When used on it’s own it takes several months for the improvements to show, but it can be speeded up when used alongside the  other treatments we’ve mentioned.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are There Any Alternatives?
You could take the surgical route and have a surgical procedure called a tummy tuck, designed to remove stretch marks on the abdomen. Some skin is often removed too, the extra skin often caused by pregnancy, weight gain or weight loss. There are also some laser treatments available but the results aren’t predictable, and it’s early days. Thanks to them stretch marks can be improved but not completely removed, especially if you’ve had them for a long time.
How Will I Feel?
Stretch marks can make you feel incredibly self-conscious about revealing your skin, so much so that it can ruin beach holidays and prevent you from fully enjoying sports. Once they’ve faded away and your skin loooks lovely and smooth again, with more even pigmentation, you’ll feel like an entirely new you, sleek and confident.
