Erasing Stretch Marks

What are
Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are generally formed when skin expands or shrinks quickly. In this case the connective
tissues under the skin can be damaged and also there are changes in the collagen and
elastin fibres. Stretch marks generally present themselves like lines or striae, where the skin
seems to have been ‘stretched’.

In their early stages of formation, stretch marks are reddish in appearance and as they
mature and settle down, they tend to become whitish in appearance.

Stretch marks commonly develop during pregnancy, puberty or after gaining or losing a lot of
weight. They can also be caused during certain conditions like cushing’s syndrome etc. They
usually appear on the stomach, thighs, upper arms or back.

Treatments for
Stretch Marks

Dr. Sejal highly recommends a systematic treatment of stretch marks. It generally follows the below protocol:

1. Use of topical stretch marks reduction ointments which try to remodel the skin from the surface. But these have limited efficacy.

2. Chemical Peels also have limited efficacy for treating stretch marks.

3. Use of Microneedling procedures using either dermapen or dermaroller.

4. Use of Co2 Fractional Laser for affecting scars and stretch marks that do not heal with microneedling alone.

5. Use of MNRF – Radio Freuency Micorneedling – for enhanced effect of RF with Microneedling.

Both the procedures of microneedling and CO2 laser are often enhanced with PRP treatment. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma which is derived from the patients blood and is rich in growth factor proteins. These growth factors aid the healing process after skin resurfacing procedures such that the results are often superior.

Know More About
Stretch Mark Reduction

Stretch marks are best handled by procedures that remodel the collagen and elastin in the skin. The best way to do is to carry out a controlled injury of the skin using certain skin resurfacing techniques. When this controlled injury heals it causes two primary effects:

1. It activates the collagen and elastin formation process in the skin. Collagen and Elastin are the basic proteins which hold the skin cells together and are instrumental in the form the skin takes.

2. This process also leads to neo-vascularization, that is formation of new blood vessels, leading to a much better blood flow and hence healthier skin.

Because of the above two effects when the skin heals, there is a substantial improvement in its texture and in case of any abnormalities like scars and stretch marks the healed skin starts resembling the adjoining area rather than have a different texture or structure.

The results of stretch mark reducing procedures is both permanent and additive. Meaning that with each session of a skin resurfacing procedure there is an improvement in the results and this result is sustained. This is so because once the collagen fibres are restructured in the skin there is no way for it to revert back to an abnormal state unless there is again some factor like injury or a growth spurt to cause stretch marks.

Skin resurfacing procedures are slow to show results as they depend on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Also the skin resurfacing treatments can only be done slowly and progressively as the treating doctor has to ensure that there is only limited injury to the skin which will aid in smoothening the skin and not harm the skin further.

For seeing visible difference in stretch marks a minimum of 4 sessions is advised by Dr. Sejal. For a complete resolution one may need many more sessions spaced at least one months apart.

That Can Help
3D HIFU for Body Skin Tightening

3D HIFU is a process in which a specialized HIFU probe suitable for treatment of larger body areas is used to focus ultrasound energy on the deep dermal layer and Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) tissue of the skin. This stimulates collagen and elastin production thereby improving the skin’s elasticity and tightening the sagging skin.

Cryo Fat Reduction

Cryolipolysis is the procedure in which a cryo machine is used to cool the adipose tissue containing fat cells to a sub zero temperature. AS a result of this cooling the fat cells are destroyed and start being discarded by the body through its lymphatic system over the next 4 to 8 weeks.

Liposonic Fat Reduction

Ultrasonic Lipolysis is a technology which uses, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound to target and destroy subcutaneous fat cells. Such HIFU energy is able to penetrate and affect only the deeper layers of the skin without affecting the superficial layers in any way.

EM Body & Muscle Sculpting

EMsculpting is the short form for Electromagnetic Body Sculpting is a procedure by which High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Energy is used to affect both the fat cells and muscle mass in the treatment area. The result is fat loss accompanied by gain in muscle mass.

Frequently Asked Questions

Topical creams and ointments have a limited efficacy on stretch marks as they try to remodel the stretch marks from the surface. It is advised to undergo skin resurfacing procedures like microneedling or co2 fractional laser to see the best results. Also topical creams work better when the stretch marks are freshly formed and not set in.

There are two main types of stretch marks:
Striae rubrae: Pink / red stretch marks, which are generally the freshly formed stretch marks.
Striae albae: White stretch marks, these are more mature stretch marks that have set in.

Although stretch marks can form on wide range of body parts. The most common areas where they are seen are: tomach, thighs, hips, breasts, upper arms and lower back.

Both Co2 laser skin resurfacing and microneedling are done after applying local anesthetic cream or numbing cream. This makes the procedures almost painless with very moderate discomfort.

No. Unfortunately in most cases a reduction in the size of the body because of loss of weight or fat or muscle is not accompanied by reduction in stretch marks. As a matter of fact in most cases the stretch marks give rise to loose skin.

No. There are no known effective stretch mark reduction natural therapies or products.
