Stretch marks are exactly as you would expect: marks on the skin that develop when the skin stretches to compensate for added weight on the body. This may be due to a poor diet that results in obesity in a short period of time, or stretching of the stomach and breasts during pregnancy. Many patients have the tell-tale signs of stretched skin and may want to work with a professional to reduce or eliminate their appearance. At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team are here to provide patients with solutions to consider for improving the skin and addressing stretch marks once and for all!
What methods of treatment are appropriate for patients with stretch marks?
Dr. Jack Bertolino is here to help patients decide on the best treatment for their skin’s needs. Below are a few of the options that he may recommend to patients who are considering the treatment of stretch marks:
- Ultrasonic Dermawave (ultrasound energy)
- Intense pulsed light treatments
- Microneedling with the Rejuvapen
- PRP (Platelet-rich Plasma) injections
Which treatment should I choose?
Each patient is unique, so Dr. Jack Bertolino will evaluate a patient’s skin and determine what the best treatment is for the severity, size, and location of the stretch marks. Some patients may also ask about combining treatments together for the best possible results.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatment sessions needed depends greatly on several factors, including the severity of the stretch marks, the location, the pigmentation, and the thickness of the skin. Skin on certain areas of the body are thicker and may require more treatments than thinner skin located on areas such as the breasts. Most treatments will need more than one session to achieve noticeable results in the area being addressed.
