Did your stretch marks change the way you dress?
Well, thanks to microneedling, you can now go back to wearing tank tops and bikinis without being too conscious. In this post, we will share how microneedling can help you get rid of your stretch marks or tiger stripes and restore your clear skin.
What are stretch marks or tiger stripes?
Stretch marks are scars due to the rupture of elastin and collagen on our skin. It happens when our skin suddenly stretches and shrinks. It is a natural part of puberty where most of us have growth spurts. These scars also occur during:
- Sudden weight gain or weight loss
- Muscle growth common in bodybuilders
During the early stages of stretch marks, it can appear as red, purple, pink, or reddish-brown. It can also be itchy, especially when it starts to heal. After the healing process, the marks will sink and turn into white lines on the skin.
Since stretch marks are essentially scars, they can be permanent. Cosmetic treatments and other invasive treatments can help them look less visible on the skin. For a less invasive approach, treatments like microneedling can help the body restore itself without the need for surgery and other invasive treatments.
What is microneedling, and how does it help with stretch mark removal?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure where you use your body’s natural healing process to remove skin impurities. It uses sterilized tiny needles to prick the skin and trigger the wound healing process. During the wound healing process, your body will naturally produce more elastin and collagen in the treated area.
Skincare experts use microneedling to help make stretch marks less visible by encouraging the body to produce more collagen and elastin in the affected areas. It is also recommended for the following conditions:
- Acne scars
- Large pores
- Hair loss
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
Most patients consider microneedling as a more affordable stretch mark removal than laser treatments. It is also non-invasive and uses your body’s amazing ability to heal itself and restore the damaged skin.
