Medical Skin Needling Treatment for Stretch Marks
Needling stretch marks provides an affordable option to improve the cosmetic appearance, texture and quality of the skin affected by stretch marks
How does skin needling reduce stretch marks?
Skin needling stimulates healthy collagen and elastin production in deeper skin layers to repair the damaged areas. The area affected by stretch marks is treated with a medical roller causing tiny pin point areas of micro damage under the skin. This releases growth factors and stimulates skin fibroblasts:
- to lay down healthy new collagen
- induces natural melanin into the damaged areas to even up skin colour
- improves blood supply to the area
Skin needling sets off a natural, progressive repair process in the skin, treating the underlying cause of the stretch marks.
How to get rid of stretch marks with needling.
Everyone will experience improvement in the stretch mark appearance with needling but results are individual and depend on the severity, age and extent of the stretch marks. Early red stretch marks are improved most though even older established white stretch marks will show some improvement.
Use of vitamin A based skincare products, which we can supply, improves the outcome in all patients and is recommended.
Stretch mark treatment with skin needling.
Skin Needling for stretch marks is considered one of the only effective ways of rebuilding skin collagen. Though return to a normal skin state is not possible, significant improvement is expected, with progressive repair occurring up to a year after a treatment series is complete. Ongoing home needling and repeat treatments are safe to continue repair to a cosmetically acceptable level.
During treatment we apply specific clinically approved topical products to the area. They are “pushed” deeper into the skin with the roller than they could naturally penetrate. This takes maximum advantage of the increase in blood flow / circulation. Use of these skincare items would be beneficial for home care use to enhance results
Prices: Typically £250 to £350 per session. Small or individual stretch marks would be less. Consultations are free of charge with our medical practitioner.
