Stretch Marks Removal Before and After Care Tips

Posted on June 24, 2021 By Deepika Samant

Stretch marks are indented, reddened streaks that appear on parts of the skin such as arms, legs, breasts, stomach, and hips. These red lines are often called striae and can be attributed to reasons such as rapid weight gain or weight loss. Usually, the grooves and thin lines are harmless and treatable. You could undergo professional stretch marks removal treatment, however, before undergoing a stretch marks removal treatment, knowing what the treatment does and how to prepare your skin before and after the treatment is essential.

How Does Stretch Marks Removal Treatment Work?

Complete removal of stretch marks is not a thing yet. However, choosing to undergo the stretch marks removal procedure, you can minimize and shrink the appearance of your stretch marks to the point where they are nearly invisible. On the whole, two procedures are used for stretch marks removal:

  1. Skin Needling

When it comes to getting rid of stretch marks, skin needling is a highly effective treatment. It encourages the skin to produce healthy cells by creating small, invisible micro-perforations. To perform the skin-needling treatment, a pen-like device with needles is used. The needles in this high-speed pen pierce in and out in the same spot.

  1. Thermique 

The Thermique treatment is a revolutionary technology that uses small pinpricks of heat to create a cauterized damage to the skin, thereby tightening and firming it. This treatment works by evaporating small channels into the skin using thermo-mechanical energy. Therefore, it promotes the creation of new collagen, which improves the skin quality while also allowing the delivery of medical-grade treatments to the dermis.

Measures to Take for Stretch Mark Removal Before and After the Treatment

The stretch mark removal treatment uses advanced skincare and skin treatment to break down and rebuild the weakened connective tissue. To get the best results, you must take certain steps for stretch mark removal, before and after your treatment. These are:

Before Stretch Mark Removal Treatment

  • It is always in your best interest to speak to your doctor about how you should prepare for the procedure to get the best results. You may need to stop taking certain medications and drugs, such as Ibuprofen and those for acne treatment. Your doctor may also recommend you stop topical retinoids. 
  • Keep your skin hydrated and unexposed to the sun for at least 48 hours before the treatment. 

After Stretch Mark Removal Treatment

  • You may experience skin irritation and redness, or skin flaking, in the days following the procedure. This is a natural reaction to the small “injuries” that the needles have created, though you will be able to return to work or school. For the first few days, you can wear mineral makeup till the redness fades. 
  • Your skin pores may be open; so it is advised to wear sunscreen with high SPF. 
  • After microneedling, your skin will be able to easily regenerate new tissue. Theoretically, you should see benefits in 3-4 weeks. For visible results of the stretch marks removal treatment, you’ll need multiple sessions. The treatment generally involves little to no downtime. But the skin may feel tight for a few days.
