There are a number of things that can lead to the development of stretch marks on your skin. Typically, any condition that produces significant weight gain in a short amount of time can put a person at risk for developing these marks. Pregnancy is one of the most common causes. Other things, like certain medications, can lead to their development as well. These events leave many people trying to figure out their options for stretch mark removal. Dr. Chernoff at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa is proud to offer a number of stretch mark removal treatments.
No one likes to see the stretch marks that were left behind because the skin was stretched beyond its ability to retract back to its normal position without any repercussions. When it happens, however, there are ways to eliminate these marks. The benefits include skin that does not have the presence of those battle scars that came from enduring the sudden weight gain.
Depending on the depth and severity of the marks, a number of methods can be used to help. The best way for you to determine which method will be the most beneficial is to consult with Dr. Chernoff at his office in Santa Rosa. He can examine your skin and figure out the extent of the stretch marks. From there, recommendations can be made accordingly.
Available treatments for stretch mark removal include fractionated CO2 laser therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), therapeutic light-based treatments, certain types of skin peels and topical skin rejuvenation treatments. These methods tend to involve little to no downtime and can be done in the comfort of our office in Santa Rosa, Indianapolis, Beverly Hills or Newport Beach.
Most of these stretch mark removal treatments are designed to stimulate the production of collagen, which is a naturally-occurring substance in the human body that is responsible for attractive, healthy-looking skin. The body produces less and less collagen with age, which is part of the reason why stretch marks develop. When collagen production increases, the level of skin fullness increases also. This gives the skin a fuller, healthier appearance. It will also help to eliminate those unwanted marks on the skin.
