Sublative Skin Resurfacing For Stretch Marks
Stretch marks, also known as striae, are a common cosmetic concern discussed in the dermatology clinic. When will they fade? How can I get rid of them? Is there a cream that can help? All good questions, but a great answer for those looking to treat stretch marks and rejuvenate their skin could be Sublative Skin Resurfacing.
What Causes Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are caused by rapid weight gain or sudden stretching of the skin. “They’re quite common in growing teenagers and people who have gained weight quickly,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, board certified Dermatologist and cosmetic expert at Sanova Dermatology. “We see them in all ages and genders, even though we most commonly associate them with pregnancy.”
How Can Sublative Skin Resurfacing Help?
Over-the-counter creams and home remedies work well for some, but often these treatments merely help with discoloration and don’t effect the stretched and damaged skin, “For some, this is a sufficient result,” says Dr. Hanson, “but many people still look for more effective therapies for fading these marks.” The elos Sublative strategically breaks up the scar tissue and damaged skin, inducing new collagen formation and resurfacing the skin surface for smoother, unblemished texture. The treated area is numbed prior to the procedure and most patients experience little to no discomfort. Throughout the series of treatments, you will notice a clear minimization in the appearance of both the red or pink coloring and the texture of the skin.
