Stretch marks are a type of scarring on the skin that occurs when the skin is stretched beyond normal elasticity limits, causing tears within the dermis (middle layer of the skin). Stretch marks may fade over time, but if they don’t, stretch mark removal procedures can make them less noticeable.
If you are bothered by the appearance of stretch marks, you don’t have to live with them. At FACE Skincare Medical Wellness in Michigan, we offer our clients a variety of stretch mark removal treatments.
Alma-hybrid: The Alma Hybrid is the latest skin rejuvenation technology, and the most advanced resurfacing laser in the world. Hybrid is 50% more powerful than traditional CO2 models, while being a 50% faster treatment.
Salt Facial™: Salt Facial is a skin renewal therapy that rejuvenates and refreshes the skin. During treatment, the skin is exfoliated using all-natural sea salt, after which an ultrasound device is used to infuse antioxidants into the skin. Finally, a high-intensity LED light is used to perform phototherapy which promotes collagen production and skin repair, making stretch marks less noticeable.
RF Microneedling: RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. During RF microneedling, micro-needles are used to deliver the RF energy into the deep dermal layer of the skin. This process stimulates the body’s repair process, which helps to break up the scar tissue that causes stretch marks to form.
Morpheus8®: Morpheus8® is a widely popular treatment that can reduce the appearance of stretch marks. It works the same as RF microneedling, breaking up the scar tissue to allow for healing and fresh skin to surface.
BBL HERO: BBL HERO is a game-changer when it comes to skin rejuvenation. BBL HERO has the power to reduce the appearance of stretch marks effectively by delivering light energy that heat and stimulate new cellular growth. These new cells replace the damaged skin cells to reveal smooth skin and eliminate stretch marks.
excel® V CoolView Laser: The excel® V CoolView Laser system is designed to address a variety of skin concerns, including stretch marks. It is a 3-in-one treatment that can work on multiple skin concerns in the same treatment session.
Active/Deep FX Fractional CO2 Laser: The Deep FX Fractional CO2 Laser has been a game-changer in the stretch mark removal process. The fractional laser uses advanced Ultrapulse™ technology to resurface the skin, and treat skin irregularities in the deeper layers. The Deep FX reduces stretch marks by repairing the dermal injury and stimulating new collagen to promote the growth of healthy tissue.
Limelight Skin Rejuvenation: Limelight is a versatile Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment that targets skin imperfections. The LimeLight system emits different wavelengths of light that selectively target the pigmented areas of the skin. These pigmented cells absorb the light and are quickly broken down. Limelight breaks up the cells that create stretch marks, so the skin becomes clearer and brighter.
