How to get rid of Stretch Marks using a Combination of Fractional Laser and RF Microneedling 

How to get rid of Stretch Marks using a Combination of Fractional Laser and RF Microneedling 
Most of us ladies (and some men) have them somewhere or will have at some point in our life, those dreaded stretch marks, they vary in appearance so much from faded lines to really quite prominent white/purple marks on mainly the stomach, thighs, buttocks and not so commonly everywhere!
There are so many potions, lotions and treatments out there and many may not agree on the best treatment for stretch mark removal but one thing we all agree on is they are unsightly and we prefer not to have them. Over the years we just accepted they were a part of life part of your life’s journey should we just embrace them? here at the Laser Clinic Morpeth, we say NO! you don’t have to put up with them anymore as we have the most effective treatment for permanent stretch mark removal.
So let’s talk about them and we will answer in this blog: Is Fractional laser combined with RF Microneedling really the best for stretch mark removal?
Stretch marks, medically known as Striae have been around forever (probably as long as childbirth) Both Fractional Laser therapy and Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling treatments recently have gained recognition as effective solutions for minimising the appearance of stretch marks but when you put this power couple together they are a force to be reckoned with.
Fractional Laser treatment involves the use of controlled laser beams that target the affected skin area, creating microscopic wounds in the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, leading to collagen and elastin production, which helps improve skin texture and appearance. Radiofrequency Microneedling, on the other hand, utilises tiny needles that penetrate the skin’s surface while emitting radiofrequency energy, triggering collagen synthesis and skin tightening.
When used in conjunction, Fractional Laser and RF Microneedling complement each other’s benefits and address different aspects of stretch mark removal. Fractional Laser focuses on skin resurfacing, helping to diminish the red or purple discoloration associated with newer stretch marks and improving their texture. RF Microneedling targets the deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen remodelling and tightening, which is especially beneficial for mature or white stretch marks.
This combination therapy offers several advantages over other treatments. Firstly, it’s a non-surgical approach, with minimal downtime and discomfort compared to more invasive options. Secondly, the precision of these treatments allows for targeted treatment of the affected areas, reducing the risk of damage to the surrounding skin. Additionally, the collagen stimulation achieved through this combination helps to provide permanent results, as the skin continues to improve over time even after the treatment sessions are completed.
It’s important to say that everyone is different and sometimes individual results vary depending on factors such as the severity of stretch marks, skin type, and overall health.
