Stretch marks (striae) commonly appear after experiencing extreme weight loss. This can be associated with pregnancy, steroid use or even obesity. They appear as indented streaks in purple or pink color (rubra) and after fading as white color (alba). Stretch marks often appear on the abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks and thighs. At IGBeauty we have a number of effective and safe laser stretch mark removal options.
How To Prevent Stretch Marks
One of the best ways to prevent stretch marks is to maintain a healthy body weight. Stretch marks can appear when your skin pulls apart due to quick weight gain or weight loss. It is also important to stay well hydrated and to exfoliate your skin, as softer skin is less likely to develop stretch marks. You should ensure your body is getting enough beneficial vitamins and nutrients such as: vitamin C, D and E as well as Zinc and Protein.
How To Treat Stretch Marks
At IGBeauty we have been very successful at laser stretch mark removal using the Lumenis® M22™ IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology. This photo-rejuvenation procedure is designed to effectively treat various types of stretch marks. This technology has been widely used by skin care professionals all around the world. The IPL laser treatment can visibly improve skin tone and texture. It comes with equipped with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) so that the treatments can be geared towards any skin type or condition.
Another great option for laser stretch mark removal is the ResurFX fractional laser. This laser works by stimulating the normal collagen production that happens in the deep layers of the skin. Once new collagen is restored the skin becomes rejuvenated and young looking again. This laser is both FDA & Health Canada approved therefore it is not only effective but a very safe laser stretch mark removal option. Our ResurFX laser treatment results provide visible and long lasting results.
At IGBeauty clinic we also provide micro-needling using the eDermastamp™ system. This is a modern state-of-the-art scar reduction therapy that has been manufactured in Germany. eDermastamp works by using tiny micro-needles that electrically prick the skin in rapid succession. The needles are made of medical grade stainless steel. The whole procedure is always done under the supervision of a well-trained skin care professional. This treatment is minimally invasive and it has been designed to start the production of new skin cells.
Finally we also offer body-contouring treatments to get rid of stretch marks. Our two most popular procedures are the TriLipo MED and the TriFractional Technology. TriLipo MED works by using “radio waves” in order to warm up the fat under the skin. As a result the fat melts away. Afterwards your body’s lymphatic system releases the fat and removes it from the body. In other words, TriLipo MED is able to eliminate fat, contour the treated area, and tone your body muscles. On the other hand the TriFractional Technology is able to revitalize the outer layer of the skin tissue (epidermis). Its radio-frequency energy penetrates the epidermis and creates what we call micro-wounds. As a result the old and damaged skin cells are eliminated and new healthy skin appears in their place.
