Tiger stripes. Battle scars. Whatever you want to call them, stretch marks can be tough to get rid of. When the summer heat calls for less clothes, stretch marks can make you feel self-conscious. If your stretch marks are getting you down, read on to discover how dermaroller treatment can help.
What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks are long, thin marks on the skin. They are often caused when the skin expands rapidly, such as during puberty, pregnancy or rapid weight gain. Stretch marks are often red-purple to begin with and slowly fade to a silver-white. It is estimated that 80% of women have stretch marks either on their stomach, thighs, buttocks, breasts or arms.
Can stretch marks go away?
It is very unlikely your stretch marks will heal 100%. Although they may fade, a residual tear will remain permanently. There is a plethora of creams and gels that claim to eradicate stretch marks. However most of these only show minimal results on the surface area of the skin. However, there are cosmetic treatments that can help.
How does micro needling help stretch marks?
Dermaroller microneedling targets the middle layer of the skin. Tiny needles are rolled across the damaged areas to create miniscule pinpricks. These tiny pricks stimulate the body to produce collagen to heal and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. Your stretch marks will diminish and your skin will look great!
