They are entirely harmless, but can look unpleasant and are notoriously difficult to treat.

About Stretch Marks

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 70% 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.

Other Treatments

Our Putney clinic also offers the latest CACI non surgical and laser skin tightening treatments which could be of benefit.

They also have the Mama Mio range of professional treatments and skincare products which includes options to tackle stretch marks.

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).

Absolutely thrilled with my new brows after nanoblading with Hayley at cosmedics. I’ve worked in the aesthetics industry myself for over 10 years I was so impressed with this clinic, Hayley is literally an artist when it comes to semi-permanent make up, nanoblading is the latest technique for a more natural but defined brow and the end results I have is literally perfect brows!! I couldn’t be happier!!

Dr Dan Thio did a wonderful job removing my cyst and leaving minimal scarring, he was very professional and made me feel very comfortable during the surgery. The price I paid on the day for the surgery also included aftercare, which in my case included being provided with steristrips and handful of dressings and also stitch removal appointments. I went back after 7 days to have my stitches removed, Dr Jennifer Todman assessed the area and decided to postpone my stitch removal for another 5 days. I felt very confident in her professional expertise and appreciated that they were happy to see me for a second stitch removal appointment at no additional cost. There is a definite patient over profit philosophy. 5 days later I saw Dr Britt Vardy at the Harley Street Clinic for my stitch removal, it was quick and painless. Dr Vardy too is very professional and makes you feel very comfortable. The see and treat service was brilliant, It was important for me to have my surgery as soon as possible. Most other places wouldn't see me for at least 8 weeks but just 8 days after my initial phone call to Cosmedics, I was in the Putney Surgery, having my surgery. Overall an extremely positive experience, Thank you to the team at the Putney and Harley Street Surgeries. Cosmedics will definitely be my first port of call should I ever require any of the other services they provide.

Everyone were really welcome and helpful. Dr Britt Vardy treated my warts with cryotherapy. She explained all the process and booked next treatment/check-up to make sure warts were removed completely. Would recommend cosmedics skin clinic to everyone.
