Stretch marks appear due to a weakness in the dermal structure in certain predisposed people during pregnancy or as a result of significant weight gain or growth spurts.
Red stretch marks are easier to treat than white ones, so it is best to treat them as quickly as possible. LED lamps, thanks to their anti-inflammatory effect, radiofrequency, microneedling with radiofrequency and fractional CO2 laser will help reduce stretch marks by stimulating the production of new collagen. During this procedure, topical medicines such as Vitamin C, Silicon, Tretinoin, polylactic acid or hyaluronic acid can be used to improve both the quality of the skin and the desired effect.
The skin will improve progressively over three to six months. Several sessions at four to six-week intervals are necessary. Skin should not be tanned at the time of treatment and sun exposure should be avoided for up to a month after treatment. You must have stopped breastfeeding at the time of treatment. This treatment takes place under local anaesthetic.
Prior consultation with a dermatologist or plastic surgeon is compulsory. Together, you and your doctor will assess which treatment is best suited to your needs and what the possible side effects might be. Based on this discussion, the doctor will also provide a quote.
