Stretch Mark Reduction in London

What are stretch marks and how can they be improved?

Stretch marks are long, narrow streaks or lines that develop on the skin. They occur when the skin is suddenly stretched and their appearance is extremely common. 


Stretch mark reduction is achieved via the procedure of microneedling whereby small needles are pushed over the area that needs to be targeted to create controlled punctures, which force your skin into repair mode. The microneedle length can vary from 0.25 to 2.5 mm depending on the treatment and area where it is used on.The treatment involves multiple superficial puncturing wounds which release growth factors that stimulate fibroblasts creating new collagen and elastin. The treatment's aim is to traumatise skin without collateral damage to the epidermis and healthy tissue creating a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. 


The process achieves results through increased quantities and access of cell nutrients to the skin- optimising cell function. Tiny open channels created by the micro needles allow up to 80% more product into skin as compared to 7-10% with normal topical application. The collagen results from the natural wounding of the skin, even though the wound is minuscule. Each tiny wound goes through three classic phases of wound healing like any other wound.
