It’s not unusual for stretch marks to appear during pregnancy or after rapid weight changes. Unfortunately, just because these marks are common, it doesn’t mean that they’re desired. If you have unsightly marks, chances are you’d prefer to live without them. That’s where we come in. At Captivate Wellness, we offer microneedling treatments to ease the appearance of these marks and give you the skin you deserve.
What Causes Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks, or “striae,” appear when our skin is stretched abruptly. When excessive stretching happens, collagen and elastin are created and rush to the scene to repair the damage. As your body heals itself, it causes the red or white lines to appear. Rapid weight gain and pregnancy are the most common causes of stretching.
How Do We Address Stretch Marks?
At Captivate, we address this cosmetic concern with microneedling. The treatment process involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. The controlled micro-injuries stimulate a regenerative response, causing your body to produce more collagen and elastin to help you heal. This results in stronger and plumper skin.
What to Expect From Treatment
Microneedling relies on using tiny needles to resurface the skin. When the skin is punctured by these needles, your body goes into healing mode – releasing extra collagen at the treatment site. This results in the rapid healing of tissue and the rejuvenation of stretch mark-covered skin. Sessions take little time, are generally well tolerated, and require little, if any, downtime afterward.
