Although there are multiple stretch mark removal options available to you, it is important to ensure that you have the right one for you. However, for many the popular question is does it actually work and if so how effective is it. Here, we’re taking a closer look at the different types of stretch mark removal and how each of them helps to reduce them.
Although there are many different types of stretch mark removal, they all work in different ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and boost the amount of collagen within the skin. Microfirm uses a combination of micro needling and radiofrequency to help repair the skin and dramatically reduce the amount of scaring.
Pro’s and Cons
This procedure has a minimal amount of pain attached to it and can be done at a cheaper cost. In addition to this, you are not injecting anything into the skin; you are simply stimulating the skin cells and allowing it to repair itself. This is beneficial for those that require a natural treatment without any major injections under the surface of the skin. What’s more, there is also no downtime for this procedure and so is the perfect option for those with a busy lifestyle.
Similar to the Microfirm treatment, the Dermaroller also uses multiple needles to treat the area where the stretch marks are prominent, however a serum is then applied which stimulates the skin and allows it to repair itself within the lower areas, this is beneficial as it means that after a few treatments you can see the clear results that will help you to combat the darkness of the stretch marks. This is a more natural option and can take a larger amount of time to reduce any marks that are darkened and set deep within the skin.
This laser is designed to make smaller dents in the surface of the affected area, now although this can sound painful and somewhat scary, it is important to note that this then forces the skin to repair itself. However, unlike the last two treatments, this particular treatment causes the skin to peel for a few days following the procedure, which will reveal newer healthier skin underneath.
Unlike the other treatments on this list, Mesotherapy can be specially tailored to you. This procedure involves injecting a concoction of different vitamins and other essentials that your body needs into the lower services of the skin. This then stimulates the cells and forces them to grow, this, therefore, helps to dramatically reduce the look of the stretch marks with just a few treatments allowing you to have much faster results. Because this is specially tailored to your bodies needs it allows you to have much more effective results without a large number of visits making this an effective last-minute solution for those with a busy schedule.
Similar to Mesotherapy, Fraxel Laser penetrates the lower layers of the skin and activates its natural healing process and boosts the collagen that is being produced. This procedure is tried and tested by many and has had amazing results over the years. This simple yet effective solution can help you to dramatically reduce the appearance of the stretch marks however it cannot remove them.
Although all of these treatments are proven to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, it is important to note that they cannot remove them completely. This leaves many sceptical as to whether it actually works, however, it is important to ensure that you have done all your research into the different treatments before booking to ensure that you find the perfect one for you.
