Stretch Mark Reduction
Stretch marks typically appear as bands of parallel lines on your skin. These lines are a different color and texture than your normal skin. They range from purple, to bright pink, to light gray. When you touch stretch marks with your fingers, you might feel a slight ridge or indentation on your skin. Sometimes, stretch marks feel itchy or sore.
These lines commonly appear during or after pregnancy. Sometimes they will appear after a sudden change in your weight. Stretch Marks also tend to occur in adolescents who are rapidly growing. You can have stretch marks just about anywhere on your body. They’re most common on your stomach, breasts, upper arms, thighs, and buttocks.
Stretch marks aren’t dangerous to your health, and they often disappear over time. However, if you are bothered by the lingering appearance of stretch marks that have failed to resolve on their own, you should know that there is a solution available.
Stretch marks are no longer permanent. They can now be removed by a special method called 'dry needling'. This procedure works by softening and flattening the stretch marks. Additionally clients benefit from an increase in natural collagen production in the affected areas. This can help return any marks to the body’s original skin tone.
Clients have reported that they have seen a big improvement after just one session. Please call our clinic 1.818.697.0802 or Schedule Online to book your FREE consultation.
Who is Suitable?
Suitable for those who wish to remove/reduce any stretch marks from various areas of the body. This type of procedure can remove stretch marks from the buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and breasts. This procedure is not as invasive as other treatments and recovery time is considerably less.
Client will be given a release form to complete.
Technician goes through the form and checks if client is suitable for the procedure selected.
If client is suitable, the technician will then explain the method to the client.
Technician will answer all questions to put client's concerns at ease. At this point, the client will decide whether if they would like to continue on with the procedure or if they would like to reschedule to come back in to have the procedure done another day.
During the Procedure
Area is cleaned with alcohol and then numbing cream is applied for 30mins.
After the area is fully numbed, the technician will begin the procedure by breaking into the dermal layer on the area of the skin by using a cosmetic tattoo machine (a device that looks similar to a pen). This technique of ‘dry needling’ works by softening and flattening the stretch marks.
Aloe Vera and Bacitracin ointment is applied to help soothe and protect the area.
After the Procedure
Once the session is complete, you will be provided with a copy of strict aftercare guidelines which you need to follow during the recovery period.
Aftercare instructions are also available online. Once you have completed your session with us, we will provide you with a password to gain access to the Aftercare Online in case you lose your copy.
Number of sessions required
The amount of sessions required varies based on how severe the stretch marks are and what area they are present. A plan of treatment will be discussed with you at the time of your consultation. However, most clients notice significant results just after one session.
