Stretch mark treatment
Univers NuFace stretch mark treatments
Stretch marks often appear in adolescence or during a rapid and significant skin deformation. Appearing in the form of purplish-red streaks, they are particularly unsightly and often cause many severe complexes for men and women who have them.
As a medico-aesthetic clinic, we want to offer everyone the opportunity to combat their complexes. As such, we offer a full range of non-surgical treatments and procedures that will allow you to effectively treat your stretch marks.
While stretch marks cannot be completely eliminated, there are various treatments that can effectively combat their appearance or exacerbation, while significantly reducing their aesthetic consequences.
Fraxel Laser 1550 and 1927
Dual Fraxel combines the use of two laser technologies, acting on both the superficial layers of the epidermis and on the deeper layers of the dermis. As such, it improves skin texture and quality, while treating various skin imperfections such as blemishes and rosacea. It stimulates collagen production, promoting damaged cell replacement and allowing a new collagen matrix to form.
Once the treatment is completed, slight inflammation may follow that can persist for three to four days.
Univers NuFace: practical advice
As mentioned earlier, stretch marks take the form of purplish-red streaks that gradually whiten over the years. There are two types:
- Health problem-related stretch marks: Cushing syndrome
These are due to an excess of corticosteroids in the body. This will cause skin elasticity loss, which in turn will be likely to tear at the slightest stretch.
These stretch marks are broad, red and frequently appear on the stomach and at the base of the thighs. They often result from corticosteroid drug abuse, but can also be the result of adrenal glands that produce too much cortisol.
- “Classic” stretch marks:
These are finer, more discreet, and are not connected with any particular problem. Although they have no health consequences, they are often considered unattractive and cause complexes, especially among women.
They appear most often during puberty or during major hormonal changes. At these times, the body secretes more cortisol and therefore less collagen, making the skin inelastic and susceptible to tearing if stretched (weight gain, intense physical effort, etc.).
While it is impossible to completely heal stretch marks, there are some ways to limit the risk of tearing. In particular, you must strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle, to exercise regularly, to avoid overexposure to the sun, as well as to steer clear of drastic diets during which weight is rapidly lost and can quickly be regained thereafter. Also, prohibit creams and cortisone-based medications if possible.
