Stretch Mark Treatment Q & A

What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks are red or purple streaks that can appear on your skin after it’s been stretched. They might occur on your thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, breasts or abdomen. 

While stretch marks aren’t harmful or painful, they can make you feel embarrassed about the way your skin looks. Treatment at GYN Aesthetics & Wellness can diminish them.

What do stretch marks look like?

The appearance of stretch marks varies, as everybody is different. They might look like:

  • Blue, purple, pink, or red streaks
  • Indented lines or streaks
  • Bright streaks that fade at the ends

Some stretch marks are faint in color or flesh-colored, while others are dark and stand out significantly.

What are the risk factors for stretch marks?

Stretched skin causes stretch marks. Your risk of developing them increases if you:

  • Have a family history of stretch marks
  • Are pregnant
  • Are female
  • Rapidly gain weight
  • Are overweight or obese
  • Undergo breast enhancement surgery
  • Take certain medications

While you can’t always avoid stretch marks, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet, and getting regular exercise reduces your risk of developing them.

What is stretch mark treatment?

There are a variety of treatment options available to meet your body's unique needs. To diminish the appearance of stretch marks, your GYN Aesthetics & Wellness specialist might recommend:

Microdermabrasion

During microdermabrasion, your provider uses a hand-held device to sand away the outermost skin layer, stimulate new cell growth, and revitalize your skin.

Retinoid cream

Applying retinoid cream derived from vitamin A to stretch marks can diminish their appearance, boost collagen production, and restore your confidence.

Laser treatment

Noninvasive ThreeForMe laser treatment can reduce stretch marks by stimulating collagen production and new skin cell growth. In addition to diminishing stretch marks, ThreeForMe technology also reduces sun damage, wrinkles, scars, and facial veins.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels use chemical substances to remove outer skin layers and allow newer, younger-looking skin to develop.

What happens after stretch mark treatment?

After microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser treatment, expect some redness and swelling but that soon subsides. 

Over time, as new skin cells develop, you’ll notice smoother, younger-looking, even-tone skin and diminished stretch marks. Multiple stretch mark treatments, or more than one type of aesthetic treatment, can offer you the best outcome.
