What are Stretch Marks?
Typically, significant weight gain in a short amount of time can put a person at risk for developing long, narrow streaks or stripes on the skin known as stretch marks. Pregnancy is one of the most common causes of stretch marks. They occur as the skin (dermis) is stretched due to rapid growth of the skin.
While anyone can develop stretch marks, women tend to be more affected than men. Stretch marks can occur on various parts of your body and typically as seen on the abdomen, arms (upper), back, breast, hips and thighs.
You no longer need to hide unsightly stretch marks. There are a variety of treatments available at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery to help you reduce the raised and lumpy appearance of your stretch marks.
What Treatments are Available for Stretch Marks?
Depending on the depth and severity of the marks, a number of treatments 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. He will examine your skin and measure the extent of the stretch marks and recommend a treatment or series of procedures to help. These treatments require little to no downtime and can be done in the comfort of our office in Indianapolis.
Some of the therapies offered by Dr. Chernoff include:
- Fractionated CO2 Laser Therapy
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
- Therapeutic Light-Based Treatments
- Skin Peels
- Topical Skin Rejuvenation
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 reduce the appearance of those unwanted marks on the skin.
