Tell me more about each treatment
Dermapen - Microneedling stretch mark removal Dermapen is the industry leading microneeding device - a skin repair treatment - It uses tiny needles attached to a pen device to gently puncture the skin causing a series of traumatic punctures on the skin. The result of this is that the skin responds by naturally producing collagen and elastin to repair itself. The production of collagen and elastin work to create new smooth skin, improving the appearance of scars on face or body and also an effective stretch mark removal treatment, it can also help to tighten loose skin on stomach.
Microneedling stretch marks is a highly effective way of diminishing the look of stretch marks and a popular stretch mark removal treatment.
Stretch marks after weightloss and stretch marks after pregnancy can happen when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. While the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it's overstretched, the normal production of collagen is disrupted. As the collagen protein is a vital part of connective tissue in your skin, when this is unsettled a scar (stretch mark) can form.
Ipixel - laser stretch mark removal
iPixel is a laser stretch mark treatment which uses fractional laser to treat stretch marks. Ipixel fractional laser creates pixel-sized perforations in the skin, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This allows the skin to heal faster as the epidermis is regenerated resulting in a new smooth skin surface. Ipixel fractional laser is an effective skin resurfacing treatment which gives skin an improved appearance and texture and reduces the appearance of scars and stretch marks, it can also help to tighten loose skin on stomach.
Radiofrequency – Skin tightening treatment
Tightening loose skin after weight loss with radiofrequency is a popular treatment.
Accompanying the Ipixel or dermapen treatment for stretchmarks, for best results we add a radiofrequency treatment to help tighten the loose skin after weight loss and pregnancy stretching. Our radiofrequency utilises electrodes to deliver the Radiofrequency energy under the skin (which is controlled and limited to the treatment area). Radio frequency helps to concentrate the body’s collagen fibres and encourages the quick regeneration of the collagen and elastin that we lose with age. This results in a firmer, tighter skin and is an excellent way to treat loose skin on stomach.
