Do you ever wish that you had more even skin tone? Or you want to get rid of your stretch marks completely? We have got your back! Let’s get to know about stretch marks and their causes at first. Stretch marks are the effect of a sudden stretching of the skin and are really common. Anyone can develop stretch marks, though they tend to affect women more than men. They are long, narrow bands or lines that develop on the skin which differ from the surrounding skin. Usually, Stretch marks are a slightly purple shade to begin with and they fade into white lines with time. Stretch marks are likely to appear on abdomen thighs, breast, armpits, and upper arms and lower back.
What causes stretch marks?
They are caused by overstretching of skin. Stretch marks are formed when a middle layer of skin called ‘debris’ is stretched. The particular layer of connective tissues breakdown causing a minor injury. Stretch mark appears as a scar after healing. Stretch marks can occur during pregnancy, puberty, after rapid weight gain, hormonal imbalance and by certain medications.
How you can treat them?
Cocoa butter, egg whites and other natural remedies that we hear are not much effective in removing stretch marks. There are treatments that can help in removing the stretch marks issue entirely. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels are used to treat stretch marks. But, the most effective and recommended treatment for stretch marks in Dubai is laser skin resurfacing. The latest technology in laser, fractional CO2 Laser cures stretch marks and gives you even skin tone.
How it is done?
Traditional CO2 lasers and same technology are involved in fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing, in a fractionated form. The laser beam is broken into several smaller fractionated beams with microscopic space/ columns between them. The smaller beams will cause skin damage at a measured rate, but the microscopic space between them will remain undamaged. These undamaged spaces will initiate the healing process, in this way the issue of stretch marks on skin gets resolved. The fresh skin is even, smoother and fairer in complexion. It only treats the fractions of skin and leaves healthy skin.
Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing has many advantages over other treatments.
- It is a simple and safe procedure.
- It has lesser downtime than the traditional CO2 lasers or other process.
- It does not cause redness or any other pigmentation issue.
- It is suitable treatment for all skin types.
