Stretch marks are purple-red parallel stripes in the skin, which arise after the skin has been locally stretched too much in a short time. E.g. during a growth spurt during puberty, when overweight or during pregnancy. Stretch marks are often experienced as cosmetically disturbing. Fortunately, there is a way to make stretch marks less visible.
Fractional Laser Treatment
For the treatment of stretch marks, we at Skin Project work with the renewed, revolutionary Fractora technique on the Inmode Laser. With fractional laser therapy we can repair damage to the connective tissue in a very controlled and effective way, making your skin gradually stronger, smoother and more elastic in the long term.
The Fractora technique is a method that uses radio frequency in combination with needles. The needles make tiny fractionated holes in the skin, so that the production of collagen and elastin fibers is optimally stimulated in the deeper layers of the skin. In combination with the radio frequency, the effect of this is multiplied.
The Fractora is CE and FDA certified, which ensures the safety of the equipment.
Microneedling with the SkinPen
Renew the skin in depth, without causing superficial damage and with minimal downtime. This is possible with the SkinPen. The SkinPen is the world's first FDA-approved medical micro-needling system. It is also the only system FDA approved for the safe and effective treatment of stretch marks. With medical micro-needling, tiny micro-channels are made in the skin by means of very small, sterile needles that vibrate on the skin. During the treatment, the natural recovery process is activated deep in the skin, which creates new collagen (type 3) and elastin. The SkinPen is more powerful, more precise and safer than ever before! In contrast to many other micro-needling systems, the needle depth can be set on the needle itself and therefore never goes deeper or more superficially into the skin than set. In addition, the SkinPen is the only micro-needling system with which proven pure micro-channels are made. This is both unique and the safety of the treatment is guaranteed.
Welk effect kan je verwachten?
With 3-6 treatments you can achieve an increase of 400% more collagen and elastin and a thickening of the skin of up to 140%! A new layer of skin is created that is smoother, stronger and more elastic than before. The color as well as the structure and depth of the stretch marks will be significantly improved.The treatment is possible on every skin type. For optimal results, 3 to 6 treatments are required with an interval of 4 to 6 weeks.
Important to know
Depending on the treated area and the intensity of the treatment, the skin will look a bit redder and feel warm / stinging. This feeling will subside after a few hours. The treatment
has a short recovery period. After the treatment it is important to keep the skin dry for the first 24 hours. Some scabs may form. It is important not to scratch this. The scabs will fall off on their own after a few days. We recommend avoiding the sun and exfoliating products after the treatment and to protect the skin from the sun as much as possible. If desired, we can also advise you on the right post-treatment cream and foundation. These products have been specially developed for application after a cosmetic treatment and ensure that the recovery of damaged skin is accelerated.
The stretch marks treatments are generally sensitive. Most people find it doable, especially for the results that the treatments yield.
For an optimal result and to prevent unwanted skin reactions, we recommend: do not expose the skin to direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks before and after the treatment and apply an SPF50. This is to prevent pigment disturbances in the skin.
