Treating stretch marks has always been a big challenges.
Many people suffer from them and hate their appearance, yet once present they can be very difficult to improve.
The main problem is that a stretch mark is essentially scar tissue, which has appeared due to damage caused to the fibres in the middle layer of the skin (the dermis) when the skin is stretched relatively quickly.
They commonly appear during pregnancy or weight gain and initially look like red or blue lines as the stretched skin shows the tissues below. However, over time the blood vessels retreat so the stretch marks fade in colour to become a series of silver or white indentations.
New Stretch Mark Treatment
Now the arrival of the latest skin technology offers new hope to those with stretch marks. The Sublative Fractional Radiofrequency system available at Quinn Clinics uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency technology to deliver heat energy into the top layers of the skin. This works to promote production of collagen and elastin in the skin, making it tighter and more youthful.
For facial procedures, this can smooth out lines and wrinkles.
When used on the body, the results can be remarkable.
