Radiofrequency and Fractional CO2 resurfacing DOT laser
Both of these treatments are a great option for stretch marks removal, Dubai. You will be able to see improvement results after just the first session. In this combination treatment, the appearance of stretch marks decreased by 25 to 50 percent. For reducing the appearance of stretch marks that are deeply embedded in the skin, we need to ignite the collagen production. This also encourages the skin to contract and tighten.
The fractional CO2 laser emits the CO2 laser beam and pixelated or fractionates the beam into several tiny shafts of light. These small light shafts penetrate into the skin’s deeper layers. The skin thereafter repairs those small shafts. It pushes the old, sun-damaged skin out and replaces it with new skin. The heat damage also shrinks the existing collagen. The Radiofrequency laser is then used for delivering the heat energy under the surface of the skin. The heat energy reaches the dermis and triggers the natural collagen production of the skin. It repairs the skin and reduces the stretch marks appearance. Combining these methods gives a consistent reduction of stretch marks and increases the production of elastin bundles and collagen.
PRP and Microneedling
This treatment combines the techniques, Platelet Rich Plasma (PMP), and Micro-Needling. The first step is performing PRP therapy. In this, the specialist will draw the platelets from your blood. Then, they will infuse the platelets into the damaged skin using microneedling. This triggers the natural repair cycle of the skin. The therapy decreases the stretch marks appearance. This is a great method for increasing the production of collagen in the targeted area. Research has shown that PRP offers a great satisfaction rate, and patients have seen good to very good improvement in their condition.
The microneedling with PRP is a great alternative for laser-based and tretinoin topical treatment options for stretch marks. This microneedling procedure uses tiny pins for creating small and micro dermal wounds. As the skin starts working to heal the treated area and boost collagen production, it reduces the appearance of stretch marks. Moreover, this will not alter the color of the skin near the targeted area.
When you use a combination of PRP and Microneedling, you will be able to see good results within several sessions.
