Stretch marks occur when the skin has been rapidly stretched over areas where fat is typically present, such as your thighs, upper arms, breasts, shoulder, tummy, and buttocks. Both men and women can develop stretch marks, either because of weight gain, during puberty, during pregnancy, or due to health issues.

The sudden stretching of the skin causes the dermis, the middle layer, to tear and therefore revealing the deeper layers. These tears also allow the blood vessels to show through, which is why stretch marks can often be red or purple when they develop. As time goes by, those blood vessels contract and allow for the colour of the fat layer below to show, turning your stretch marks into a silvery-white colour.

Microdermabrasion and Obagi Medical

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that works by removing the skin’s superficial layers and giving it a radiant and youthful look. Taking approximately one hour, it aids in preparing the skin for other treatments that can reach deeper into the skin.

As the world’s number one choice of prescription skin care system, Obagi Medical has a wide range of solutions to improve your skin’s elasticity and restore the collagen production. In conjunction with Microdermabrasion, Obagi Medical skin care products ensure a result you’ll love.

Thermage CPT Body

As you get older, your skin loses its tightness and its collagen production is decreased. Working with radio frequency energy, the Thermage CPT Body treatment helps tighten your skin and smooth it. The treatment targets the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous fat layer, guaranteeing a solution that reaches deep within your skin to address its condition.

By uniformly heating up the collagen in the deep layers of your skin, the treatment tightens its structures to allow for new collagen to be produced. The outer layers of the skin are protected throughout the procedure, guaranteeing that the surface of your skin retains its beauty.

Intracel Radiofrequency Microneedling

Intracel Radiofrequency Microneedling utilises microneedles to penetrate through the superficial layer of the skin into the dermis, to directly impact the area where your stretch marks reside. This treatment is highly efficient for scars and acne, as it stimulates your skin through a gentle procedure.

Your skin’s elastin and collagen are stimulated and your skin’s natural healing process provides you with tighter and healthier skin structures.

Fraxel Skin Resurfacing

Non-invasive and accurate, Fraxel Skin Surfacing creates micro-thermal zones that allow for the precise targeting of problematic areas. As it works deep into the dermis, it creates an area of controlled ‘trauma’ that helps to trigger a natural healing process. This healing process ensures that your stretch marks are actively and precisely targeted and diminished. Our experts will create a tailored treatment process designed specifically for your skin.
