Stretch Mark Reduction

4 Frequently Asked Questions about Stretch Mark Reduction

What is Stretch mark reduction treatment?

Here at Medical Cosmetics Nottingham, we use a micro-needling device to treat stretch marks. This is the leading electronic needling device on the market which allows the practitioner to adjust the needle depth creating a customized treatment with maximum results. Micro-needling is an advanced non-surgical stretch mark reduction technique which uses the fine needles to smooth, rejuvenate and diminish the appearance of stretch marks.

What can be treated?

Microneedling Therapy can significantly improve the appearance of stretch marks on the following areas:

Abdomen
Flanks
Inner and Outer Thighs
Arms

We normally recommend that your Microneedling Therapy consists of a series of three Microneedling treatments with approximately 4 weeks between them. However in some cases, further sessions may be required. 

What happens during the treatment?

We use a topical anesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable. It will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 30 – 60 minutes for the Microneedling Therapy treatment.

The needles produce thousands of micro-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin.

What can be expected after treatment?

Immediately after your Microneedling procedure you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after one to two hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.

 

After a Microneedling treatment your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.
