Whether you’ve experienced significant weight loss or have recently been pregnant, you may be well aware of the marks on the skin known as stretch marks. Stretch marks are imperfections that develop on the second layer of skin called the dermis. They remain after periods where the skin has been stretched tight. These streaks form anywhere on the body, but are most commonly seen on the stomach, thighs, and breasts. Many of these are visible when patients wear a bathing suit, which can make them feel self-conscious about their skin’s appearance.
While there are many creams and lotions on the market that tout the ability to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, most of these fail to provide the results patients desire. This is when patients visit the practice of Dr. Jack Bertolino in Williamsville, NY to learn about effective alternative treatments with a professional. At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we understand how embarrassing some of these marks and imperfections on the skin can be and offer solutions that truly work at reducing and even eliminating stretch marks on the skin. While many of them cannot be eliminated completely, the following solutions are often used to make them far less noticeable without the need for plastic surgeries. Determining eh best treatment for your needs will start with a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with our providers to decide the severity of the stretch marks and to make appropriate recommendations based on the patient’s unique situation.
