GET READY TO MICRO THOSE MARKS
Microneedling has made headlines for its ability to change the way your skin looks forever.
Because of its ability to reduce the look of scars, it can be used on different areas of the body–not just the face.
We’re talking chest, thighs, belly, breasts, and hips. ALL the places where stretch marks like to rudely show up.
Stretch marks are scars that form in the middle layer of skin, and like scars from injuries, they do not go away on their own. While they may fade over time, getting rid of stretch marks requires undergoing a treatment that can penetrate the top layer of skin and affect the middle layer of skin where stretch mark scars form.
The process of microneedling allows us to use long enough needles to impact middle layer of your skin. When skin is damaged through the microneedling process, it triggers the development of collagen and elastin in your body, which will promote skin regeneration in the damaged areas. The skin regeneration process can encourage new skin growth in areas with stretch marks, improving the tone and texture of skin and reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
The micro-injuries caused by microneedling promote skin regeneration. It can take up to ten sessions to reduce stretch marks and make them blend with the surrounding skin.
Even though stretch marks can not be completely removed, microneedling will improve their color and texture. Basically, they will become less visible.
This procedure is more effective than stretch mark removal products. The number of treatments depends on the area you are having treated.
