Say Goodbye to Stretch Marks: Discover the Power of Microneedling

Whether it’s from unexpected weight fluctuation, pregnancy, or other underlying health issues, getting rid of stretch marks is no easy feat. But now, there may be a solution: microneedling. This treatment, which uses tiny needles to resurface the skin and stimulate collagen production, has been growing in popularity for several years as a safe and effective way to fight the appearance of stretch marks. Let’s discuss how microneedling works and why it might be the perfect treatment to reduce your stretch marks’ visibility without surgery.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-invasive skincare treatment used to improve the look of different skin concerns, including stretch marks. The treatment involves utilizing a specialized device that has very small needles. These needles create tiny controlled wounds on the skin’s surface. These openings incite the body’s natural healing process, which encourages collagen and elastin production.

What Are Stretch Marks, and What Causes Them?

Stretch marks, or striae distensae, are a frequently occurring skin condition characterized by raised, discolored lines on the skin’s surface. Stretch marks can develop anywhere on the body, but they are usually found on the stomach, breasts, thighs, and buttocks.

Stretch marks occur due to the skin rapidly expanding or contracting due to several factors, such as puberty growth spurts, pregnancy, sudden weight loss or gain, and even bodybuilding. This puts pressure on the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, which causes them to rupture and form stretch marks.

How Does Microneedling Work for Stretch Marks?

For stretch marks, microneedling stimulates collagen production in the affected area.

Microneedling helps to rebuild and strengthen these damaged collagen fibers, which can lead to the gradual fading and smoothing of stretch marks over time. The microneedling device is gently rolled or pressed over the skin during the treatment, creating multiple tiny channels.

These channels allow skin care products or serums to penetrate deeper into the skin, enhancing the treatment’s overall effectiveness. As the skin heals, new collagen is produced, improving the texture and look of stretch marks, making them less noticeable.

How Often Should Microneedling Be Done on Stretch Marks?

Microneedling has become an increasingly popular method for reducing the appearance of stretch marks. However, it’s important to remember that this is not a one-time solution. On average, most individuals may require around three to six microneedling treatments to see significant results. These treatments are typically spaced out between four and six weeks to ensure your skin has ample time to recover fully.

What Are the Other Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling offers a range of benefits beyond its effectiveness in treating stretch marks. Some of the other advantages of microneedling include:

  • Improved Skin Texture: Beyond stretch marks, Microneedling also addresses other skin concerns, like fine lines, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and acne scars, improving skin texture.
  • Minimization of Pores: Microneedling can reduce the size of enlarged pores, making the skin appear more refined and even.
  • Enhanced Product Absorption: The tiny channels created during the microneedling process allow for better absorption of skincare products, maximizing their effectiveness.
  • Long-lasting Results: With consistent sessions and proper maintenance, the results of microneedling can be long-lasting, providing you with youthful and radiant skin.

What Do We Use for Our Microneedling Treatments?

At Aespala MedSpa and Plastic Surgery, we proudly provide our patients with the most cutting-edge technology and treatments for their cosmetic and skin care needs. Our microneedling services are no exception, offering multiple options depending on each patient’s needs. We use two primary technologies: the standard SkinPen® for traditional microneedling and Vivace® for RF microneedling:

SkinPen® Microneedling

The SkinPen® is a medical-grade microneedling device that uses a set of tiny, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process, promoting collagen and elastin production and improving skin texture and firmness. The SkinPen® is commonly used to treat multiple skin concerns, like fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and overall skin rejuvenation.

RF Microneedling With the Vivace® Microneedle RF Device

The Vivace® Microneedle RF Device is an advanced microneedling treatment that combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy. This device utilizes insulated microneedles that can deliver RF energy into the deeper layers of the skin, causing controlled thermal injuries. Combining microneedling and RF energy can effectively stimulate collagen production, leading to tighter skin and improved skin tone and texture. RF microneedling is often used to tighten skin, reduce scars, and treat fine lines and wrinkles.

Added Benefits: Nanoparticle Technology and PRP

Nanoparticle technology delivers active ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin during microneedling treatments. This technology uses tiny particles to enhance the therapeutic effects of the treatment. It can address specific skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation and promote collagen synthesis. Additionally, PRP can be used in microneedling treatments to provide additional benefits.

On the other hand, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from a patient’s blood is applied during microneedling to stimulate collagen production and aid in skin rejuvenation, scar reduction, and wrinkle improvement. Using nanoparticle technology or PRP with microneedling creates a synergistic effect, significantly enhancing skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.
