Stretch marks and scars are caused by damage to the upper layers of the skin. Stretch marks appear when the elastin fibres beneath your skin break due to rapid stretching over a short period of time. Around 90% of women get stretch marks during pregnancy but they can also appear on both men and women due to sudden weight gain or loss and growth spurts during puberty.
Stretch marks are essentially scar tissue and depending on where your scars are they can be very noticeable, effecting your self-esteem and quality of life.
There are many creams, gels and lotions available on the market that claim to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, although there is no medical evidence to prove that these work.
We have a number of different safe, effective treatments that depend on the location, size and depth of your scar or stretch mark. At your consultation we will discuss with you which treatment or treatments will be most suitable. A few sessions may be required to achieve the desired results.
Aside from a little redness and avoiding perfumed creams and make-up for 24-48 hours, you are fine to get back to your usual routine straight away.
The Pixel Laser creates a micro injury without disturbing the surrounding tissue. The skin tightens around these areas encouraging healing and Improving the skin’s texture.
This is a pulsed dye laser that works best on smaller, less severe scars. Its low-energy beam helps repair damaged and scarred skin.
Micro-needling stimulates the skin to regenerate. New collagen is formed, new skin cells generated and blood supply is enhanced helping skin to repair itself.
What treatment will I have?
For scars and stretch marks we can use micro needling or the Harmony Pixel laser; which one we use depends on where the scar is and how big it is. During your consultation, your medical practitioner will examine the scar or stretch mark and suggest the best course of treatment. Not all scars respond well to treatment but we are usually able to accurately predict whether treatment will be suitable or not at your consultation. Where there is any doubt, we will give you a patch test costing £10.
Does it hurt?
Some people may feel some level of discomfort depending on where on the body the scar or stretch mark is, but neither treatment is particularly painful. We can prescribe a topical anaesthetic for more sensitive areas.
How many treatments will I need?
This varies greatly patient to patient. At your consultation we will give you an idea of how many treatments you are likely to need and an idea of cost.
