Micro-Needling for Stretch Marks
We all want to look and feel our best – whether we’re a man or a woman. If you are a person who has made the lifestyle choice to be healthier and lose weight, you may be thinking about tackling your stretch marks. Skin is very rubbery and elastic. So, once stretched out – for any number of reasons from weight gain to pregnancy – it can be challenging to return your skin to its original look, feel and elasticity.
How Safe is Micro-Needling for Stretch marks?
Micro-needling is a skin care treatment which requires the use of a special instrument. The micro-needling device consists of a heavy duty roller head with tiny well-crafted acupuncture needles. It has excellent results in lessening stretch marks by exfoliating your skin.
Here’s how micro-needling works:
- The micro-needling device rolls over the affected area.
- When this happens, the acupuncture needles will pierce through your initial skin layer to create tiny, microscopic lacerations.
- In response to this, your body produces collagen which heals quickly.
Your skin’s response to the small, microscopic damages are what causes the stronger, firmer, more elastic collagen to form. Our Phoenix plastic surgery team is knowledgeable and skilled in all types of skin rejuvenation techniques. Ideally, you will want to learn more about many different types of treatment by consulting with our skilled Phoenix plastic surgeon.
