Whether you recently gained a lot of weight, lost a lot of weight, or went through a pregnancy, you likely developed some stretch marks along the way. When your skin stretches at a rapid rate, it can sometimes cause little lines to appear around areas of your body like your stomach, upper thighs, buttocks, hips, upper arms, and breasts. Depending on the type and location of stretch marks that you have, Dr. Jack Bertolino offers four safe, easy, and effective treatments. Read on to learn more.
- Ultrasonic Dermawave
Ultrasonic Dermawave is a type of PhotoRejuvenation that is used to help tighten the skin, produce collagen, and get rid of the overall appearance of stretch marks. One of the biggest benefits of Ultrasonic Dermaware is the fact that it is a non-invasive treatment which means that you will get results without having to go under the knife.
Depending on the location and vibrancy of your stretch marks, IPL may or may not be the right option for you. Ideally, IPL is used to treat more subtle stretch marks across the body. By using intense pulse light therapy, this treatment helps to slowly get rid of your stretch marks and boost your skin’s collagen to get rid of any dimpling.
- Micro Needling
Micro needling is a treatment that uses hundreds of tiny needles to make microscopic wounds in your skin. Once your skin has been punctured, your body will naturally heal itself which will get rid of your stretch marks. Depending on your skin’s condition, a series of six treatments every two to four weeks is recommended.
Similar to the treatments listed above, Platelet Rich Plasma uses your body’s natural healing power to get rid of your stretch marks. By removing a portion of your blood, PRP is known to help promote healing across the skin and body.
As you can see, there are a variety of different treatments Dr. Jack Bertolino can use to get rid of your stretch marks. To learn more about all of these treatments and to find out what kind is right for you, contact Dr. Jack Bertolino today.
