When gaining or losing considerable amounts of weight in a short space of time, the skin on your body often loses elasticity and develops silvery, shiny lines known as stretch marks. These are most commonly found on the hips, thighs, buttocks, and stomach. They can also occur on arms, legs, or the lower back. One of the most common reasons for the development of stretch marks is pregnancy.
We have a number of treatments that can be used to treat stretch marks and make them less visible. This includes an amalgamation of skin abrasion, peels and laser treatment, and creams. Our processes work by understanding the structure of the skin's layers and tissue: its two major proteins that comprise this structure are collagen and elastin. Collagen is the tissue that binds the skin's structure together, and elastin gives it its elasticity. Once this is lost, it can result in the sagging and unevenness that one associates with ageing or stressing of the skin. It is then that stretch marks are formed
Our treatments are combines to contain the complete proteins that are needed to help rebuild the skin's structure, and minimize the look of unsightly stretch marks. This has the added benefit of improving the look and feel of the skin in its entirety, including making the stretch marks look less obvious. As with all of our treatments, we will undertake a full body consultation before we carry out any procedures on you. We will also recommend products to look after your skin post treatment.
Don't worry about feeling any pain - the needles used to administer the Botox are extremely fine, and our consultants are highly practised in carrying this procedure out. Therefore most people that have experienced Botox injections would describe the experience as 'mildly uncomfortable' at most.
