Stretch Mark Removal

Stretch marks sometimes referred to as stria or striae, are tears or rips in the skin often caused by a stretching of the skin. These long, thin marks are often purple or red to start with and then they tend to gradually fade to a white-silver colour. Stretch marks are an extremely common concern that most of us will experience at some stage during our lives.

Anybody can develop stretch marks and their severity and cause can be affected by several different factors. Many people notice stretch marks occurring during puberty, during pregnancy or after rapid weight gain or weight loss. Some patients may also notice the development of stretch marks if they are using some type of medication or if they have certain medical disorders.

Stretch Marks Treatment

With intervention, such as treatment, your stretch marks may be improved to the point that they no longer bother you; redness can be greatly improved, as can the size of the marks and the quality of the skin. Some of the options we have for stretch mark removal at The Skin to Love Clinic include:

  • Regenlite – This laser treatment is primarily used to improve the redness associated with your stretch marks. Regenlite can also be used to firm and improve the quality of the skin on and around your stretch marks.
  • Fraxel – A pioneering, market-leading, fractional laser, Fraxel triggers your skin to replace your old, damaged skin cells with new, healthy cells. This can result in the fading and softening of skin imperfections, such as stretch marks, as well as improvement in the quality of your skin.
  • Derma FNS – This extremely popular, safe and effective micro-needling treatment is often used to improve the appearance of stretch marks as it stimulates your damaged tissue to replace itself, improving those unwanted skin imperfections and overall skin texture.

Recommended Stretch Mark Removal Treatments:

At The Skin to Love Clinic we have a number of medically reviewed ways to help stretch marks with treatments such as:

  Regenlite    fraxel

Derma Fns    platelet rich plasma

Can You Permanently Remove Stretch Marks?

It’s not possible to 100% remove a stretch mark with any product or treatment, however, you can dramatically fade them to the point that you may not be worried about their appearance anymore.

How Many Stretch Mark Removal Sessions Does it Take to Remove Stretch Marks?

There is no strict answer for this; stretch marks are much like scars, they too are tears in your skin, and all are slightly different. Additionally, all individuals respond differently. The type of stretch mark removal treatment, the age and the appearance of your stretch marks are all taken into consideration at the time of assessment so you can be given a clearer idea about how many sessions are expected.

How Much Does Stretch Mark Removal Cost?

There is no strict answer for this; stretch marks are much like scars, they too are tears in your skin, and all are slightly different. Additionally, all individuals respond differently. Your preferences, the age and appearance of your stretch marks are all taken into consideration at the time of your consultation and assessment so you can be given a clear idea about what treatment(s) are best suited to your particular stretch marks and how many treatments your practitioner suggests; following this your practitioner will be able to give you the cost of your individual treatments and stretch mark removal treatment plan.

What is The Best Way To Remove Stretch Marks?

There’s no ‘best’ method of removal across the board (as with all medicine). It is more about the most appropriate treatment for the individual. However, this does not mean that all treatments are equal nor if the knowledge and experience of those who are treating you. At The Skin to Love Clinic we only ever bring treatments into the Clinic that are clinically proven and we only align ourselves with premium treatment brands and devices such as Fraxel Dual.

How Long Does The Stretch Mark Treatment Last?

Once a stretch mark appears, they will not disappear on their own. They are likely to change appearance, however, often turning from red to white/silver. Nevertheless, stretch marks can be greatly improved with treatment, often to the point where you’re no longer bothered by them anymore.

How Do You Get Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are tears in the skin that can appear for different reasons and at different times of our lives; the most common being during puberty, during pregnancy and as a result of weight changes.

I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

I have seen Jane a few times for my skin tag removal and it’s been an absolute amazing service!! She’s been super calming and helped me every step and if I had any tension it was gone in a minute or so, she get rid of all the issues super quick and pain free and has been super helpful with the healing process afterwards too. This clinic is quite far from me but I am willing to travel for such a good service. Would recommend to everyone you’ll be really happy
