Stretch marks are a common skin concern amongst men and women that occur when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. The condition commonly affects teenagers who are going through growth spurts, people who have lost weight, and women who have gone through pregnancy. They look like red, white or purple marks on the skin.
Top treatments for stretch marks
Skin needling is ideal for restoring and rejuvenating your skin to peak health. It’s benefits include:
- Reducing wrinkles and fine lines
- Tightening and improving elasticity
- Shrinking enlarged pores
- Minimising scarring
- Repairing pigmentation
Skin needling works by penetrating the top layers of the skin with microneedles which create pin-point injuries. This then triggers your body’s natural wound healing response and stimulates new collagen. By doing this, the treatment works to reduce wrinkles, scarring and other imperfections, while also improving skin texture and tone.
Fat dissolving injections reduce small and stubborn fat pockets without surgery, for a smoother and more contoured look. The injections contain a natural substance, which is safe to use and naturally broken down by the body over time.
Once injected into the treatment area, the active ingredient causes fat cells to rupture. These cells are then naturally broken down through your body’s natural processes.
At Artisan, we offer a number of skin tightening treatments that are highly effective in treating stretch marks, including Thermage and Ultraformer. Thermage is a radiofrequency treatment that stimulates collagen to tighten the skin and slow the ageing process. Immediately after the treatment, your skin is visibly tighter, firmer, and smoother.
Ultraformer is also a favourite among many of our clients for its immediate tightening, lifting and contouring effects. The treatment targets specific sagging areas with ultrasound technology, allowing deeper penetration and highly targeted results.
Both are highly effective treatments for lifting and tightening the skin and generally only require one treatment to achieve long-lasting results.
