After pregnancy or a significant weight gain and loss, the abdomen or other area of the body can be left with unsightly stretch marks. Although there are several surgical procedures that can reduce or eliminate certain stretch marks by removing excess skin, there are other alternatives. If you have red or blue stretch marks marring your skin, treating the condition with a process called “cosmetic micropigmentation,” or permanent makeup, can be effective in reducing the appearance of the marks.
How Cosmetic Micropigmentation Works
A stretch mark is a scar; the skin has been stretched to the point that an actual scar has been created. The cosmetic micropigmentation procedure involves embedding an organic pigment under the skin to add permanent color, camouflaging the appearance of the stretch marks in Beverly Hills patients. This procedure is often used to enhance eyebrows or lips as permanent makeup, and can be effective for stretch marks. A hand-held system applies the pigment by puncturing the skin hundreds of times per minute with a tiny needle, and pushing the pigment into the targeted area.
Treating Stretch Marks without Surgery
In many cases, the stretch marks appear on the lower abdomen, flanks, and breasts. They may have appeared during adolescence when the body quickly matured, or due to weight gain and loss. Many clients seek out advanced treatments that will reduce the appearance of these unsightly marks without surgery. Various treatments are available that can improve skin quality and reduce the appearance of red or blue stretch marks on the body. It may require a series of treatments to effectively improve the look of stretch marks, with various techniques and technologies applied, based upon the color, size, and shape of the stretch marks. Some of the non-surgical treatments that may be effective in treating your specific case include:
- Permanent makeup
- Chemical peel
- CO2 laser treatments
- Laser skin resurfacing
- Fraxel laser treatment
