Many men and women suffer from stretch marks during some point of their life and such, are looking for an effective and safe stretch mark removal treatment option.
Stretch Marks are a form of scarring that is caused by the skin overstretching and the second layer of skin, the dermis, tearing. These lines can appear on your stomach, back, arms, legs, thighs, hips, breasts or bottom and are either red, purple or white depending on what stage of development they are at.
How Stretch Marks Form
Stretch marks are common in both men and women, with up to 90% of women experiencing stretch marks during pregnancy. Men often will notice stretch marks form around their chest, abdomen and arms after gaining weight and weight training.
Stretch marks form and change in three stages. Initially, stretch marks are raised red lines in the acute development stage. They then change to a purple flat and faded line in the sub-acute stage. Finally, as time progresses the lines will turn white or light in the final chronic stage.
The Leading Stretch Marks Treatment in Melbourne
More and more people are looking for that quick fix when it comes to stretch mark treatment. However, these miracle creams have little impact when it comes to reducing the appearance of stretch marks. There are hundreds of products on the market that promise to reduce and prevent stretch marks so it is very easy to be misled, hoping that something will finally work.
SublativeTM technology is the most advanced treatment for stretch mark removal Melbourne. This unique FDA approved technology uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency focused on the skin in a matrix arrangement.
What To Expect
Preparation begins two weeks prior to your treatment. During which time, you will need to ensure you avoid sun exposure and self-tanning products and wait for tanned skin to fade.
Once you arrive for your treatment your consultant will go through everything you need to know prior to commencing the session. Then it is time to begin your stretch mark removal treatment. The radio frequency energy works by controlled, deep heating of the dermis. The energy is applied to the skin in the form of a grid, dividing the energy into smaller columns that produce controlled microscopic areas of damage in the dermis. These treated areas start a process of repair by which the stretch mark tissue is replaced with new collagen and elastinproducing cells.
Post treatment your skin may be slightly to fairly red. This will usually last around 2-3 days, though this can vary with the individual. We advise you to avoid any cleansers and topical creams and products for a minimum of 48-72 hours following your treatment. You may continue with your normal skin care routine once the area has entirely healed. To help accelerate the regenerative process we will recommend customised Medik8 skin care for a topical Vitamin C and A.
