Stretch marks are often known as striae, which are intended streaks on any part of the body caused due to stretching of the skin. Due to the skin being rapidly stretched (torn), it lacks firm compact collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in noticeable scar-like marks. Stretch marks appear reddish purple, before eventually fading to become lighter, almost white, or darker for others.Both men and women can experience stretch marks, but the treatment works equally for each. We have a number of stretch marks treatments, including Skin Needling for stretch marks and our Clinical skincare range, at our laser clinic in Bondi Junction.
When it comes to stretch marks removal, unfortunately, there is nothing to permanently get rid of them, however, using our stretch marks removal treatment we are able to reduce and shrink the appearance of them so they become almost invisible. At You by Sia, we use a combination of advanced skincare, plus Skin Needling for stretch marks removal and results can be seen in as little as one treatment. Due to skin being rapidly stretched or torn, it lacks collagen and elastin—the two proteins which are responsible for providing the skin its firm texture. This type of stretch marks removal treatment works when a pen-like device pierces the skin repeatedly at a very high speed. Call or go online and book in for a one on one skin consultation with one of our skin professionals and start your journey towards beautiful, healthy skin.
