The process of stretch mark removal is achieved via dermapen 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 healthly tissue creating a wound healing response and renew the skin cells.
The process of stretch mark removal through microneedling 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 miniscule. Each tiny wound goes through three classic phases of wound healing like any other wound.
