How can microdermabrasion help stretch marks

How can microdermabrasion help stretch marks?

This is a before and after picture from one of our incredibly talented SkinBase microdermabrasion therapists, Laila Paris. It’s just one example of how effective microdermabrasion can be on stretch marks. So often, we focus on the benefits SkinBase microdermabrasion can have on acne and acne scarring, dull and tired skin and pigmentation and ageing skin that we forget to tell you about how fantastic the treatment can be on other pesky skin problems – stretch marks included!

Causes of Stretch Marks

Weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy or simply growing can all result in the fine silvery, long, fragmented scars that are sunken into the skin – despite being extremely common, we often feel self-conscious about wearing certain clothing or getting into our cozzie at the beach because of them.

Stretch marks can occur anywhere where the skin has been stretched, but they usually affect areas where fat is stored, such as the:

  • Tummy (abdomen)
  • Breasts
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Shoulders (in bodybuilders)

So, how exactly does microdermabrasion help target stretch marks?

Well first it’s important to understand how much elasticity plays in how stretch marks form. It’s also an important factor in how we can use microdermabrasion to remove stretch marks.

Stretch marks form because a certain hormone becomes overactive and stops the skin from producing collagen and elastin fibres. These are responsible for keeping growing skin taut. SkinBase microdermabrasion targets the problem area and through the fine crystals, stimulates elastin and collagen, helping to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Course of Treatments

Over a course of SkinBase treatments, the skin surrounding the stretch marks is brought down to a level closer to the stretch mark itself. Although the marks are still there, the SkinBase™ treatment helps to blend the stretch marks with the surrounding area so they become significantly less visible.

Good luck!

Why do we get wrinkles?

Wrinkles. Wrinkles around the mouth, forehead wrinkles, wrinkles round the eye. Urgh. Wherever they are, all we know is that some (most!) women see them as the bane of their existence, and they actually go through all means they could possibly afford just to get those wrinkles off their faces, ranging from expensive creams to microdermabrasion, Botox or even surgery.

Our culture and society is so youth-oriented that wrinkles, especially on women, have become totally undesirable.

Why do we get them and how can we stop them?

SkinBase Focus: Acne & Acne Scarring

We talk a lot about the pure beautification benefits that the SkinBase facial can have on the likes of tired, dull and ageing skin, but it’s equally as important to note the benefits for more traumatic skin problems too.

Some of our proudest moments as skincare specialists have come following a course of treatments on someone who has had to suffer and cope with acne and acne scarring for most of their lives. We’ve had people come in for the SkinBase microdermabrasion treatments with deep scarring, low self esteem & confidence and leave after 6 – 8 sessions a completely different person.
