Treat Stretch Marks with Microneedling

Are you unable to wear your favourite crop top due to the visible stretch mark on your stomach? If yes, there is a solution that is convenient and safe – Microneedling.

Medically known as Striae, stretch marks are long, narrow stripes that form on the skin due to excessive stretching. Mostly, when your skin is stretched too fast due to various reasons including obesity, growth spurts during teenage or pregnancy it causes tearing in the elastin fiber resulting into the stretch marks. They are in fact scars that take ages to fade naturally and can usually appear stomach, thighs, hips, breasts, upper arms, and lower back and are common in women after pregnancy.

How Microneedling Helps in Getting Rid of Stretch Marks?

There are several procedures that have been known to improve the appearance of stretch marks. One of the procedures, known to be effective against stretch marks is Microneedling. Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling utilizes tiny needles to make channels in your skin that stimulates your skin to produce collagen due to the perceived injury of the skin. This procedure will speed up the diminishment of stretch marks through inducing the rapid formation of collagen.

This will smooth out the appearance and cause the stretch marks to vanish. Though you will need multiple sessions to get the desired result but it is worth it.

Advantages of Microneedling over other Treatments

Unlike other invasive skin therapies, microneedling or dermarolling is considered to be less time consuming. People choosing this procedure can get back to work a day after the treatment. There might be temporary redness or inflammation which subsides within few hours.

Unlike other skin corrective treatments like laser therapy, microneedling is considered safer for darker skin tones. It is also considered safe for people with sensitive skin.
