Stretch Marks Treatment
Stretch Marks Treatment
Stretch marks are thin streaks or creases on the surface of the epidermis and usually appear on the chest, abdomen, arms and thighs.
Stretch marks occur when the skin stretches excessively. Increased amounts of cortisone in the body weaken the elastic fibers of the skin and so it is easier for stretch marks to appear.
Other factors contributing to the formation of stretch marks include rapid weight gain and inherited disorders, such as Cushing's syndrome, Marfan syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
Numerous formulations, mainly oils, creams and gels, promising to eliminate stretch marks, are marketed from time to time. Unfortunately, if they are not absorbed well by the skin, they only manage to soften stretch marks.
Fortunately, nowadays there are different, advanced methods that are truly effective when dealing with stretch marks, even white ones that are more persistent and difficult to encounter than red ones.
How Are Stretch Marks Dealt with Using Fractional Laser?
By applying the latest generation of Fractional Laser CO2, we target the deepest skin layers, stimulating cells that produce collagen, without causing surface damage. Fractional Laser CO2 technology creates multiple microscopic holes on the surface of the epidermis, stimulating the fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin again. After skin healing, damaged skin is replaced with new, healthy skin, reducing the depth of stretch marks, while their color is more like normal, undamaged skin. The texture of the skin is greatly improved, and as the stretch marks fade away, skin is tightened at the same time.
It takes about 5-6 sessions to see visible results with significant reduction in white stretch marks and certain reduction in red stretch marks, making skin tighter and firmer

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatment of Stretch Marks
The struggle of cosmetic surgery for a forever youthful face and body is always on. In recent years, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) has been added within Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab therapies and the results are spectacular. PRP is plasma-rich plasma and is an autologous treatment. This means that PRP is received and injected within the patient, which makes it totally compatible with his or her body.

First, blood is received from the patient, just like in simple blood sampling. The blood is then subjected to centrifugation and, after a particular procedure, platelet-rich plasma is obtained, which is injected into the predicted areas. PRP treatment is effective in reducing skin loosening, as well as treating scars resulting from acne, surgery, injuries and burns. It is already applied with absolute success in cases of white and red stretch marks, as well as on the scalp to treat hair loss.
The major advantage of PRP autologous therapy is that the person's own blood (about 20ml) is used, so there is no risk of hallergenic or immune reaction, as with other injectable treatments. 

Treating Stretch Marks with a Combination of Fractional Laser and PRP
It is the ultimate, non-invasive method for a facial wrinkle-free face that combines, in a unique way, two pioneering therapies: autologous PRP treatment and Fractional Laser.
Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab specialised dermatologists and plastic surgeons start treatment with Fractional Laser to activate collagen. They continue with the autologous PRP treatment by taking a small amount of blood from the patient (about 20ml). Blood is centrifuged by isolating plasma, rich in platelets and stem cells. This is then injected with either a needle or dermapen (non-injectable PRP treatment) at the points where Fractional Laser was previously performed. The little local irritation caused passes quickly, and the person can immediately return to his activities.

Treating Stretch Marks with Surgery
Surgical treatment of stretch marks can only be applied to the stretch marks on the abdomen. The fine surgical results are due to the fact that the affected skin is removed completely. It is recommended as a method of treating stretch marks only in certain cases, as it involves the risks and suffering of an operation,  long recovery period, and it is possible that some scarring remains.

Alternative Stretch Marks Treatments
In the context of skin regeneration, stretch marks can be treated by chemical peeling, in order to stimulate fibroblast stimulation and collagen production again. Treatment is performed for 6 months once a month. The results are significant in red stretch marks and satisfactory in white stretch marks. Care is needed, as the skin in the stretch area is very thin and can easily be hyperpigmented after treatment. The use of A-retinol in combination with glycolic acid is one of the widespread surface peeling protocols.
Conservative treatment of stretch marks can be performed with patches, but the effectiveness of this method is rightly disputed. The patches contain substances that "nourish" and "mobilise" the fibroblasts. Some of these are vitamin C, vitamin E, flavonoids and other drugs, which are widely used in the medical cosmetics industry. The patches are placed exactly where the problem is detected.
