Time passes by really fast and just like that, it’s warmer out. But not only that, you’re also just a few weeks away from the bikini season! If at this point you feel that time has sneaked up on you, no need to panic–it isn’t too late to get that bikini-ready body this summer and get rid of those stretch marks that make you cringe!
Now you’ve probably already tried creams and other over-the-counter stretch mark treatments without any luck. And while these at-home remedies rarely work, the good news is that right here in Ottawa, we offer a highly effective new, state-of-the-art stretch mark reduction treatment that works!
It’s common for men and woman to experience stretch marks across many areas of the body. Unfortunately stretch marks occur because the middle layer of skin has poor elasticity, which some individuals are more prone to experience. Once the skin in stretched during pregnancy, or after a large amount of weight is lost quickly, the skin can’t regain its normal shape and a stretch mark is created. The breakdown of dermal collagen creates a mark that is shiny with silver streaks over time. However, stretch marks can also be reddish or purplish toned, depending on the person’s skin color.
Our patented micro-needling system is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment used for a number of common skin ailments, such as pigmentation issues, fine lines, cellulite, acne scars, sagging skin, and yes…even those pesky stretch marks!
Considered a newer treatment option, micro-needling is an innovative approach that is very effective in reducing stretch marks. And while individual results will vary, we have seen dramatic improvements.
Using a micro-needling process, we creates micro-injuries in the skin which allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process. Scar tissue, including stretch marks, are healed and repaired by the body’s own collagen that is automatically triggered as a result of the micro-needling process.
Depending on the area treated, micro-needling takes under an hour and the patient experiences no down time. Over the next few days, the treatment area may experience some redness while the healing process begins. The full benefits of the treatment are seen within four to six weeks as collagen production increases, but some patients report seeing immediate results after treatment.
Micro-needling is appropriate for most all skin types. Even patients with darker skin tones or sensitive skin tolerate the micro-needling treatment well.
