About Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are the result of damaged elastin within the dermis layer of the skin. They are entirely harmless, but can look unpleasant and are notoriously difficult to treat.

Stretch marks appear especially with someone gains and then loses weight in a relatively short space of time. They are often associated with pregnant women, body builders and obese or overweight people who have successfully lost a lot of weight.

During the weight gain, the skin is stretched relatively quickly causing damage to the elastin. Stretch marks may initially look red or purplish and quite angry. This can fade over time to a white line. They also usually have quite a marked depression or groove in the surface of the skin.

Stretch Mark Treatment

Treatment of stretch marks is quite challenging. While moisturising can make the skin softer, it generally does very little to restore the appearance of the stretch marks themselves.

Dermaroller Micro-Needling

Dermaroller micro-needling treatments offer a new solution for skincare practitioners.

dermaroller

The process of micro-needling the skin involves rolling it with a proprietary Dermaroller, which contains thousands of tiny pricks in the surface of the skin. This process kick-starts the body’s own production of new collagen by regenerating new skin cells to effectively reduce the appearance of stretch marks..

Medical-grade Dermaroller® models are the only micro-needling devices that communicate with fibroblast and skin stem cells to generate more skin cells, collagen and elastin for smoother, healthy-coloured and smoother-looking skin. The deep layers of the skin thicken as it regenerates for a firmer and smoother appearance.

Previous studies have shown visible improvement after a single treatment.

A course of treatment may be recommended for best results. This is usually 2-3 sessions. This will be fully discussed at your consultation.

Cosmedics Skin Clinics use the genuine branded medical-grade Dermaroller® which is completely sterile and has titanium pins. A larger version is used for body treatments compared to that used on the face.

This is a highly effective professional tool and should not be compared to the cheaper home rollers.

Stretch Mark Consultation

At Cosmedics Skin Clinics, cosmetic treatment consultations are an opportunity to discuss your concerns with an experienced Aesthetic Doctor. We’ll recommend the most appropriate options and quote as appropriate. We allow generous appointment times so that treatment can be carried out on the same day if required, but if you’re not sure then don’t worry – there’s absolutely no obligation.

A consultation with one of our Aesthetic Doctors costs £50, but that is redeemable against any treatment cost undertaken at the same appointment (the consultation would be effectively free of charge in this case).

Wonderful service and knowledgable Doctor. Had 3 moles removed via shave. Have been back for check ups since and so pleased I’ve had it done. Wish I’d done it sooner. Now looking at other treatments with them too.

Dr Perry is very professional and always considers the best treatment for his clients. He creates a natural look aiming to enhance features as opposed to overdoing it. I would highly recommend him, especially if it’s your first treatment or if you have any concerns.
