Microneedling stretch marks is an excellent option for many suffering from stretch marks.
They are an extremely common issue for both adult men and women. They appear as streaky lines of thinned skin and are most often found on the breasts, abdomen, hips, and thighs.
While there is no absolute cure for stretch marks, microneedling has been shown to drastically reduce the visibility of these dreaded skin flaws.
Next, the Microneedling device is gently pressed into the skin and glided over these lines for a few minutes. Redness may occur at this point, but it is a sign that the needles are effectively penetrating into the skin to stimulate collagen production and skin cell turnover. At the end of the brief procedure, a cream is applied to the treated area to encourage wound healing and repair.
You can expect some redness for up to a day afterward as a result of all the skin stimulation, but it subsides quickly as the healing begins and the results of less visible stretch marks.
Multiple sessions are usually spaced once every 3-6 weeks during a 3-6 months period. Then the course of 3 treatments every 6-12 months after the first course of treatment.
Microneedling stretch marks have been proven to provide some amazing and dramatic results, but the results do vary from patient to patient. Although no method currently exists to completely repair stretch marks, microneedling most definitely lightens their appearance, making them virtually invisible.
