Life can bring all kinds of changes, including changes in your body size, especially during times of pregnancy, puberty, rapid weight-gain or muscle building. It can also cause unsightly stretch marks too. An alarming 90% of pregnant women will get stretch marks around their abdomen, hips and thighs, and unfortunately, it seems to be genetic — if your mom had stretch marks, odds are that you will too.
But don’t fret as Skin MD and Beyond is pleased to announce a new procedure to visibly reduce stretch marks using an advanced technology known as Micro-Needling. Our DermaPEN Micro-Needling involves a motorized, piston-driven Dermapen which features an array of tiny, ultra-thin surgical steel needles at its tip that rapidly puncture the skin to make thousands of tiny wounds as the device is passed over the skin. With topical anesthetic there is virtually no discomfort, and the tiny wounds heal rapidly so downtime is minimal—one day or even less.
Read on to find out a real clinical solution that works – and why many people have trusted Skin MD and Beyond to treat those embarrassing stretch marks.
Dr. Fiona Wright Tip:
Stretch marks, as well as acne scars, are actually deep wounds in the skin. People have tried to treat them with creams and lotions – with little success. At some clinics they are treated alone, with superficial treatments like microdermabrasion, – also with minimal results.
I am pleased to announce DermaPEN Micro Needling, a fractional micro-needling device that is used to treat acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, and general skin rejuvenation. By creating small micro injuries to the skin, the body responds with a physiological process stimulating the body’s own natural healing process, without causing much real damage to the skin. Newer, healthier skin is produced during this healing process (called collagen induction therapy (CIT)), which improves skin thickness and texture, color, and general evenness in tone. It also allows deeper absorption of medical strength topicals that when applied will provide additional stimulation to your body’s own repair mechanism and creates more collagen thus smoothing scars such as stretch marks.
Because our Dermapen Micro Needling is performed under the direct supervision of a physician, you can be certain that you will enjoy the many benefits of skin rejuvenation – reduced fine lines and acne scars, unclogged pores, improved sun damaged and acne prone skin, removal of brown age spots and hyper pigmentation, and retexturing of your skin. With my team of medical aestheticians, we will perform a thorough patient evaluation to selectively target your unique concerns. The highest standards of clinical safety and use of the finest state-of-the-art equipment will provide you the assurance of a quality experience and a more confident you!
