People with stretch marks are often extremely frustrated because they have done everything “right,” taking all the proper actions to eliminate stretch marks like proper diet, toning exercises, and the application of topical creams -- but the stretch marks remain. Fortunately there are now some excellent options for the professional removal of stretch marks. Laser Cliniqúe’s founder and medical doctor, P. Alexander Ataii M.D., is a leader in the field of stretch mark removal and other skin enhancements.
Stretch mark removal with Active FX
Active FX is a fractional laser resurfacing treatment that is ideal for removing age spots, scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and stretch marks. In fractional resurfacing, the light of a laser is used to remove pigmentation and improve the texture of the skin. It stimulates collagen production and rejuvenates skin cells below the surface. Fractional laser systems have been shown to be an efficient technique for diminishing the appearance of stretch marks.
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling works by creating tiny punctures in the skin that stimulate the body’s collagen production. Collagen is that all-important protein that gives youthful skin its supple, hydrated glow. PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a blood product derived from the patient’s own body. It contains potent growth factors that can regenerate skin cells, smoothing the appearance of stretch marks. After microneedling, the pores are more susceptible to receiving PRP, making the treatment even more effective in helping to reduce skin irregularities.
Morpheus8 is another innovative solution for minimizing stretch marks. This safe, effective RF microneedling procedure utilizes a handheld device to create micro-injuries in the skin, facilitating a collagen-production response. As the skin is fortified with essential proteins, the top layer becomes smoother, tighter, and healthier. Gentle radiofrequency energy delivers powerful waves to the deepest layers of the skin, affecting a more youthful, radiant aesthetic.
