Stretch marks are common among many people and especially women. They normally occur as a result of rapid growth which stretches the skin thus leaving some lines and marks on the body. Normally, this growth affects collagen production pattern and this is what brings about the lines and marks. During the initial stages, one will notice some purplish or reddish lines which will happen to be spread out and also rough. There are many causes of this rapid growth but pregnancy and hormonal changes are the most common culprits. They can also be caused by other factors such as body building, influencers, obesity and to some extent adolescence.
Stretch marks can be depressing and especially for post pregnancy women who all of a sudden begin seeing these ugly lines and marks that they didn’t have before. This will definitely have a major effect on their self esteem and if not handled properly, the situation could deteriorate. Many women normally choose expensive and non effective removal methods including surgical procedures and creams yet they are very expensive and painful. These procedures are also very expensive and therefore not many people are able to afford them.
Microdermabrasion is fairly affordable
Compared to all other methods that are considered effective, microdermabrasion is one of the most affordable procedures not to mention that it is also an easier solution. Not only does this procedure help to reduce the lines but it is also an effective method for removing the stretch mark appearances. It is important to understand how microdermabrasion works in before deciding on whether it is the thing for you.
How does the procedure work?
Normally, the procedure involves the removal of the top thin layer of the affected skin and this in return gets rid of the dead skin. This renews the skin while allowing some new skin cells to grow thus giving the parts that were previously affected a fresher appearance and colour. For the procedure to be successful, it is important to consult with a trained dermatologist, aesthetician or physician although some people could easily do it within the comfort of their homes.
Microdermabrasion requires quality technology
For the procedure to be successful, your physician will use a machine that is specially made to massage your skin tissue thus allowing for a stimulated circulation of blood. This in return helps the skin to grow tender for antioxidants and nutrients to penetrate thus making the skin spotless and fair. The treatment might require a number of sessions and especially if the stretch marks and skin blemishes are stubborn during the initial treatments. However, this notwithstanding the procedure is highly effective and will help in the reproduction and repair of the skin’s normal collagen which is required to make the skin healthier and young looking.
During the microdermabrasion stretch mark removal, an ultrasonic frictional heat is released by the machine and this accelerates blood circulation, breaks down fat ad cellulite while improving muscles relaxation. It also helps to get rid of dead skin cells, heal scars, improve skin texture and tone and treat pigmentation. The post-surgery duration is very important and normally involves ointment and balm application to keep the skin moisturized and supple. It will also aid in skin cell reproduction leaving you looking beautiful and soft.
