Stretch marks are a bother for many pregnant women, but getting rid of them after giving birth is often tricky. Nevertheless, laser treatments are now available that can fade stretch marks from pregnancy. These techniques are safe and effective, and successfully reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
How Stretch Marks Form
Stretch marks are fine lines or irregular areas of skin that are also known as striae. They often occur when there is a sudden change in body size, such as happens during puberty and pregnancy. They are also common in people that experience rapid weight gain or weight loss.
Weight fluctuations and similar factors put undue pressure on the underlying dermal layer of the skin. As a result, the elastic fibers are unable to stretch and bounce back as normal, but instead they break or tear. This eventually leads to the formation of stretch marks on the outer layer of the skin.
Fading Stretch marks
Stretch marks generally appear in areas where there is a large amount of fat deposits, such as the abdomen, thighs, and breasts. Women, who want to get back their pre-baby body, are always looking for ways to fade stretch marks from pregnancy, and Sona Med Spa has a program that can help.
Sona Med Spa has developed a comprehensive treatment program that is designed to fade stretch marks. It involves a number of procedures – microdermabrasion, Advanced Fluorescent Technology (AFT), and Pixel treatments.
Microdermabrasion has long been used for skin rejuvenation, as it removes dead skin cells, thereby reducing blemishes, to reveal clearer skin. AFT uses advanced intense pulsed light technology to reduce pigmentation. Finally, Pixel treatments rejuvenate the skin and stimulate collagen.
This 3 step approach is being used to reduce stretch marks from pregnancy, so that women can once again feel confident about the way they look.
