Stretchmark Treatment Q & A

What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks are indented, streak-like marks that appear on the surface of stretched skin. The marks might develop on your hips, buttocks, breasts, abdomen, chest, or upper arms but can appear in other places on your body.

They might be red, pink, purple, blueish, or black. While harmless, stretch marks could make you feel embarrassed. Fortunately, simple stretch mark-reducing treatments are within reach at Rejuvenation Med Spa.

What are the risk factors for stretch marks?

While anyone can develop stretch marks, some factors boost your risk of getting them. Examples include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Genetics
  • Hormone changes
  • Being a woman
  • Rapid growth
  • Rapid weight gain or loss
  • Certain medications
  • Breast enlargement surgery
  • Anabolic steroid use

While maintaining a healthy weight is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of stretch marks, in many cases, you can’t prevent them.

How are stretch marks treated?

Specialists at Rejuvenation Med Spa treat stretch marks using Excel HR laser technology and Secret RF radiofrequency (RF) treatments to stimulate cell regeneration and reduce the pigment responsible for visible streaks on your skin. They also offer Alastin® skin care products that diminish stretch marks.

To find out if you’re a candidate for stretch mark treatment at Rejuvenation Med Spa, your provider reviews your medical history and desired outcome. They examine areas of your skin containing stretch marks and let you know what to expect during each procedure.

What happens during treatment for stretch marks?

During laser or RF treatment, you relax in a comfortable chair; you may wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser.

Your provider numbs the skin if needed and uses a handheld device to apply laser or RF energy into targeted areas of your skin. Each treatment might last about 30 minutes.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After laser or RF stretch mark treatment at Rejuvenation Med Spa, your skin may be a little tender, swollen, or sensitive for a short time. As cells regenerate, however, stretch marks fade away over time. You may need multiple treatments to achieve the best outcome and clearer skin. Use skin care products as directed by your aesthetic specialist. 

Don’t live with stretch marks if they make you feel self-conscious. Call the Rejuvenation Med Spa office to book an appointment or schedule one online today.
