A stretch mark is essentially a scar created by the body when the skin cannot produce new cells fast enough to match growth, stretching and damaging the skin. Many women experience stretch marks during pregnancy, as the body is unable to keep up with the rapid growth of the skin on the abdomen. Stretch marks also develop during adolescence, or as a result of weight gain.
At one time, there was little that could be done to improve the appearance of stretch marks – but times have changed. At B + A Medical Aesthetics, we offer groundbreaking aesthetic treatments for stretch mark reduction in Austin.
We offer IPL treatments with the most advanced treatment device available in the USA. IPL is a non-invasive treatment, in which targeted pulses of light energy are applied to the damaged skin. The energy enters the underlying skin structure to create an even skin tone in red or blue stretch marks while triggering natural regeneration for a smoother, healthier appearance to the skin.
Stretch marks can be made less visible with a custom RF microneedling treatment. The treatment involves creating micro-channels in the damaged skin while simultaneously applying radiofrequency energy, triggering the skin to rebuild and restore. RF microneedling is among the most effective treatments for stretch marks, as it stimulates the deeper skin layers to produce a higher quantity of collagen fibers, the support structure.
A treatment regimen for a serious case of stretch marks could be enhanced with a custom chemical peel to remove the upper skin layer and produce a smoother, softer surface to your skin. At B + A Medical Aesthetics, we can improve the look of skin damaged with stretch marks with an Obaji peel or an advanced chemical peel formula.
Our BodyFX radiofrequency treatment system is among the most effective ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The BodyFX system delivers RF energy with HV electroporation (soft tissue ablation) to restore a firmer, tauter quality to skin damaged by stretch marks. Deep tissue heating, along with suction, works to tighten and soften the skin, reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
