Remove Stretch Marks Introduction

Remove Stretch marks at Dr. Jane Clinic, Stretch marks can be annoying and challenging to remove, but there are medical aesthetic treatments available to reduce the look of stretch marks.

Creams, gels, lotions, and surgery have all been proposed as treatments for stretch marks, though there is little medical evidence to support the effectiveness of such treatments.


What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks, also known as striae, are a type of scarring on the skin that appears on areas of rapid growth. Stretch marks can appear in any area where there is a lot of stretching or pressure to the skin, such as during pregnancy or puberty.

If you have stretch marks already, they'll be red or pink streaks on your skin that may look like fine lines or thin scars. These red or pink striae will eventually turn lighter in colour.


How do they occur?

Stretch marks are caused by the skin being stretched beyond its natural elasticity. This can happen for many reasons, including sudden growth spurts, obesity, pregnancy and even excessive weight lifting. Stretch marks form when the upper layer of skin tears away from the deeper layers due to rapid stretching or tearing of collagen fibers. The body then replaces these fibers with new ones that are not as elastic or as strong as the original ones were.


Is it possible to prevent them?

The short answer is no, you can't prevent stretch marks. The long answer is that there's not enough research to know for sure. Even though you can't stop your scars from forming, being mindful of your lifestyle might help you avoid further damage to them or improve skin elasticity so they don't worsen over time. Keeping your skin hydrated will reduce the damage of stretch marks.


Do they go away on their own?

In many cases, they are here to stay! The only way to remove them is through laser treatment, which we'll share with you below

Topical creams, ointments and gels.

There are a number of topical creams, ointments and gels that claim to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. There is little medical evidence to support their effectiveness.

These products contain ingredients such as retinoids (like Vitamin A), silicone oil, vitamin E, cocoa butter and rosehip oil. While these may improve the appearance of your stretch marks by improving skin tone and hydration, they do not reduce the actual size of your stretch marks.



What are the choice of treatment for stretch marks?

Treatments such as chemical peel and microneedling can improve the appearance of stretch marks. But by far, laser treatments produces quicker and better result.

Stretch Marks Laser Treatments is always the best treatment choice.

Stretch Marks Laser treatments is always the best treatment choice. Laser light is used to stimulate the skin's own healing process and reduce or remove stretch marks. This can be done by using laser to penetrate deep into the skin. This stimulates your body's natural production of collagen and elastin fibers—the two main components of healthy skin—and helps restore the elasticity of your skin.


Fractional laser resurfacing.

Fractional laser resurfacing is a general term to any procedure that involves the use of a laser beam that is divided into thousands of microscopic treatment zones, to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of scars. It has been used for years for scars improvement before it is also applied to stretch marks.


Fractional laser resurfacing works by delivering tiny blasts of energy into the skin, causing them to heat up and stimulate new collagen production. As this new collagen fills in gaps caused by stretch marks, stretch marks fade away over time.


There are 2 types of fractional laser resurfacing method; Ablative and Non Ablative method.

Ablative laser. This type of laser creates injury on the thin outer layer of skin and heats the underlying skin (dermis), which stimulates the growth of collagen. Types of ablative laser includes CO2 laser, erbium laser or combination system with these lasers.


Nonablative laser. This category uses a precise wavelength of light (like Lightsaber - Star Wars weapon) to penetrate below the skin’s surface to induce a controlled injury. This approach stimulates collagen growth while keeping skin surface layer unharmed. It is a less aggressive approach than an ablative laser and has a shorter recovery time. Discovery Pico Laser is the newest and most advance of this category.
