Techniques for stretch mark removal
Unfortunately, stretch marks cannot be removed completely, we can however significantly improve their appearance. Apart from StetchCare mesotherapy, to reduce stretch marks at Esthé clinic we use the V-beam pulsed dye laser, fractional CO2 laser and eTwo/eMatrix radiofrequency which remodels the skin and promotes the formation of new collagen fibres and positively affects light stretch marks, for example on breasts.
The composition and effects of StretchCare mesotherapy
The StretchCare mesotherapeutic solution contains dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), hyaluronic acid (HA), vitamin B5, copper and zinc.
HA moisturizes the skin and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. DMAE reduces and thins stretch marks as it tightens damaged collagen fibres. All ingredients of the preparation lead to the tightening and reduction of stretch marks and to the unification of their colour with the surrounding skin.
The course of the StretchCare procedure
The StretchCare solution is applied by thin needles to the dermis into a depth of 1-3 mm. The procedure is only minimally painful. We apply a different dose of the preparation to every person depending on the type of the treated skin, its damage and the size of the treated area. We recommend to undergo 4 procedures in the first month, after which just one application per month will suffice.
The causes of stretch marks
Heredity plays a role in the formation of stretch marks. Women suffer from stretch marks during pregnancy, sometimes during adolescence. For men, they may be the result of rapid growth during adolescence or rapid muscle increase during intense workout. For both women and men, stretch marks can be caused by significant fluctuations in weight or the use of corticosteroids.
