Stretch Marks Treatment in Chennai

Stretch marks, also known as striae distensae or striae, are a form of scarring of the skin. Striae are caused by the tearing of the layers of skin. Over time, stretch marks fade away, but they do not completely disappear without any treatment. Although stretch marks may appear anywhere, they mostly occur on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, lower back, and hips. As a solution, La Belle provides stretch marks treatment in Chennai that can effectively treat stretch marks.

Before and After Stretch Mark Treatment

Causes of Stretch Marks

Rapid Growth

Periods of rapid growth, such as puberty, lead to excessive stretching of the skin, which in turn leads to the formation of stretch marks.

Pregnancy

Stretch marks that are caused due to pregnancy are also known as striae gravidarum. The incidence of stretch marks is far greater in pregnancy than in any other condition. In pregnant women, there is not only the expansion of the uterus but also the abdomen. The skin also gets stretched immensely, which leads to the tearing of the dermal and epidermal layers, resulting in stretch marks. Another contributing factor is weight gain during pregnancy. Following birth, stretch marks are commonly seen on the abdomen, the inner and outer thighs, breasts, the lower back, and the buttocks area.

Increase in Cortisone

An increase in the level of cortisone greatly affects the natural flexibility of the skin. Cortisone prevents the fibroblasts from producing collagen and elastin fibers. These fibers maintain the flexibility and power of the skin. Due to this, there is dermal and epidermal tearing, which leads to scarring of the skin. These scars, over some time, result in stretch marks.

Syndromes

Marfan syndrome and Ehler-Danlos syndrome are syndromes that cause the skin to tear and result in stretch marks. Marfan is a genetic syndrome that weakens the elastin fibers of the skin, causing abnormal growth. Ehler-Danlos syndrome, on the other hand, affects the collagen present in the skin, which leads to reduced flexibility and the formation of stretch marks.

Signs of Stretch Marks

  • Thin, long, or short broken lines are known as striae.
  • In the beginning, reddish-purple stretch marks are evident on areas with a higher concentration of fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, breasts, and hips.
  • Over time, the stretch marks become lighter in color.
  • Atrophy to striae or stretch marks over a few months.

Symptoms of Stretch Marks

  • Burning sensation.
  • Irritation of the affected area.
  • Redness.

Treatment of Stretch Marks

fractional CO2 laser, five of the latest technologies in the treatment of stretch marks. Moreover, La Belle’s provided the best stretch marks removal treatment in Chennai, which is not only affordable but provides the best post-treatment recovery results.

Laser

The laser treatment for stretch marks in Chennai makes use of concentrated rays of light. This energy beam is then directed to the area affected by stretch marks. This stimulates not only new growth but also smooths out the existing stretch marks. In other words, lasers are a kind of skin resurfacing treatment. Not only does the skin heal, but it also gains its naturally smooth texture by smoothening the striae.

Two types of lasers are used:

  • Ablative lasers- Erbium-YAG, CO2
  • Non-ablative lasers- Fraxel, Alexandrite

Ablative lasers destroy the upper layer of the skin, leading to smoother skin. On the other hand, non-ablative lasers destroy the deeper layers of the skin, leading to the formation of new collagen. Collagen lets the affected skin regain its flexibility.

Chemical Peels

The chemical peel procedure makes use of trichloroacetic acid. This acid breaks down the excessive connective tissue in the skin, leading to the fading of stretch marks. The acid helps the cells present in the skin to regenerate, simultaneously fading the striae in due time.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is another successful treatment for removing stretch marks. It is a painless and easy procedure. In this procedure, only the uppermost layer of the skin, that is, the epidermis is targeted. The skin is stimulated to tighten the elastic fibers and collagen which have lost their ability due to excessive stretching of the skin.

Microneedling Radiofrequency

Microneedling radiofrequency is a new technology for stretch marks removal treatment in Chennai. Microneedling helps with the natural production of collagen along with the production of elastin fibers. This helps the damaged connective tissues present in the dermis to recover, thus reducing the marks.

Fractional CO2 Laser

Stretch marks removal treatment in Chennai makes use of another latest technology, that is, fractional CO2 lasers. The upper, as well as deeper layers of the skin, are destroyed using the CO2 laser. This leads to the production of collagen, thus giving a smooth appearance to the striae, and restoring the smooth texture of the skin.

FAQ's – Stretch Marks Treatment in Chennai

In the beginning, stretch marks appear as thin, long, or short broken lines. They can be red, pink, purplish, reddish-brown, or brown, largely depending on the underlying skin color. With time, stretch marks fade away and become white or very light in color.

Stretch marks in any area can cause itching and dryness of the skin. If the area is scratched excessively, it may lead to redness of the skin along with increased sensitivity of that area. The skin may also become more prone to cuts and infections, which can pose a problem later.

The lasers used are ablative or non-ablative in nature. Subsequently, rays of concentrated light are directed toward the area affected by stretch marks. This, in turn, leads to the smoothening of the stretch marks and, in turn, stimulates new growth. In other words, lasers create a smooth and healthy skin texture.

To date, there have not been any reports of serious side effects after getting a laser treatment for stretch mark removal. However, some patients post-treatment may complain of redness and inflammation of the area, which generally resolves overnight.

Stretch mark removal treatment requires anywhere between 6 to 8 sittings. Although many times if the area covered with stretch marks is small, it may even take less than 6 sessions.
