Many people have stretch marks, leaving unwelcome patterns across once-smooth skin. While there are plenty of products that claim to get rid of stretch marks, we’ve found that the best way to do away with these unwelcome lines is to rebuild your skin.
At Aesthetic Assets, our expert team of RN’s; Pam, Tamara, Stacey, and Natallie offer patients the most effective, science-based techniques for looking your very best. When it comes to stretch marks, we’ve done our research and found one tool that rises above the rest and delivers excellent results — Genius™ by Lutronic.
Here’s a look at how stretch marks develop and what we can do about them.
The makings of stretch marks
While Stretch marks can develop in people of all shapes and sizes they are most commonly seen during pregnancy, rapid weight gain, growth spurts during puberty or rapid muscle growth during weight training.. The long narrow streaks, stripes or lines typically occur when your skin is stretched too quickly.
These abrupt changes in skin cause collagen and elastin to rupture and as the skin heals stretch marks form.
Stretch marks can also take on varying appearances that include:
- Indented lines in your skin
- Colored streaks (typically red, purple, or pink)
- Lines that fade into white streaks
No matter what appearance your stretch marks take on, they are notoriously tough to get rid of once they take hold. Until now.
Rebuilding your skin
To improve the appearance of stretch marks, we combine two of the best technologies available in the aesthetic industry today and offer it as our exclusive Tighten/Brighten package.
Step one employs GeniusRF medical device, which delivers fractionated radiofrequency (RF) microneedling at 3 tissue planes. This system features 49 insulated microneedles that deliver radiofrequency energy deep into your skin which will cause cellular remodeling of the ruptured collagen and elastin over time.
Step two involves the LaseMD Ultra medical device which is a fractionated non-ablative laser. This device only focuses on the very surface of your skin and essentially polishes and brightens at that level.
Using these two medical devices in our Tighten/Brighten package, we tackle the problem from above and below, leaving you with tighter, smoother, more even-toned skin.
Our Tighten/Brighten Package can be used for stretch marks on most parts of your body, including your:
- Upper arms
After your treatment, your results are gradual as your body responds and rebuilds your tissue, but most of our patients enjoy optimal results about 6-12 weeks afterward. We typically recommend a series of at least 3 treatments for the best results.
