If you have stretch marks, you know they likely appeared in your youth during pregnancy, or if you had a period of quick weight gain or loss. Stretch marks are a type of scar caused by the quick change in size you experience. When the skin grows quickly, it causes the collagen and elastin to break, and as it heals, the marks appear. You may have already tried creams, lotions, and gels, without seeing much result. Studies show that early use of hyaluronic acid or retinoid will make them less noticeable. Here at Gentle Revive, in Lindon, Utah, we have pharmaceutical grade hyaluronic acid and retinoid cream to alleviate the appearance of stretch marks if you are able to catch them early. If they are already set, you are also in luck. We've got a laser that will diminish even the most stubborn stretch marks. Stretch marks can be dark, red, purple, silvery, or close to your skin's color. They can be difficult to remove with other solutions but, with our laser technology, we can improve your skin quickly and easily. In just a few short treatment sessions you will see beautiful results in both the tone and texture of your skin. At Gentle Revive, we use fractional laser technology to target each stretch mark without causing harm to the surrounding skin. When the laser energy is absorbed, your body's natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy skin, and beautiful results. Over the next few weeks you will see continued improvement in both the coloration and smoothness of your skin.
Stretch Mark Removal FAQs
What causes stretch marks?
Stretch marks are a type of scar that is caused when the skin grows more quickly than the structural parts of the skin are able to keep up.
What does fractional mean?
Fractional means that the laser causes micro injuries to a relatively small fraction of the skin at a time. If you think of where the laser comes out as a stamp with tiny needles on it, that is kind of the arrangement of the energy as it comes out of the laser. Heat is put into the skin as tiny columns that stimulate growth of new cells. These columns of new tissue work together in repairing the appearance and function of the skin.
How can I prevent stretch marks?
Try to maintain a healthy weight. Stretch marks happen when the body grows too quickly, so try to let any weight gain occur over a longer period of time, when possible. Getting enough water, vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc will also help to prevent stretch marks. When you do get them, treat them early so their appearance will be lessened, and if you have them, make an appointment with Gentle Revive, by phone or online to get rid of them.
