Stretch Mark Reduction

Stretch Mark Reduction

stretch
  • Fibroblasts (the cells that create new collagen) are stimulated to create new, fresh, supple collagen.
  • This new, well-organised and structured collagen provides a more supple connective layer, which allows inflammation of the surface tissues to subside, thereby reducing the appearance of stretch marks.

How Does The Stretch Mark Reduction Treatment Work?

The Stretch Mark Reduction Treatments apply focused multi-polar radio frequency to precisely target and heat the collagen fibres within the treated area. The angry red stretch marks that many people are left with after childbirth or sudden weight gain and / or weight loss are a result of the connective tissues within the dermis being ruptured, overstretched and not re-forming correctly. 4D sculpt  utilise carefully controlled multi-polar RF technology to deliver focused RF energy into the dermal tissues of the treated area. This causes the following effects :-

  • Existing collagen tissues shrink, providing an immediate tightening and plumping effect.
  • Old, fibrous collagen is denatured and broken down by the body.

Why does this get rid of stretch marks?

Technically speaking, no treatment can truly get rid of stretch marks. However, our groundbreaking unique treatment protocols are able to significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks, changing them from angry red lines, to a barely noticeable silvery appearance. A cooling gel is applied to the treatment area, then the Stretch Mark Reduction treatment commences. The multi-polar RF technology generates heat in the subcutaneous layer, causing the existing active collagen to contract, delivering immediately tighter feeling skin. The RF energy also selectively denatures (breaks down) the old, inflexible collagen and stimulates the re-growth of fresh, healthy and flexible collagen fibres. With successive treatments, this cumulative effect will deliver long lasting results! The laying down of fresh, new collagen fibres results in skin remodeling, taking place over 3-6 months and lasting up to two years, although “top up” treatments every 6-9 months can prolong this effect.

End Result
The volume of collagen increases in a more organised structure. This reduces the appearance of stretch marks, whilst also delivering a more supple, smoother and even tone to the skin.

Contra indications/can I be treted

If you are a healthy adult, over the age of 18, the answer is usually a resounding “YES”!!! However, there are some medical conditions (referred to as “Contra-indications”) that mean we CANNOT treat you. This is in the best interest of your health and to ensure there are no complications with your condition, so please don’t be offended if we are unable to treat you as a result of one of these conditions being present :-

  • Pacemaker or internal defibrillator.
  • Superficial metal or other implants in the treatment area, such as crowns and bridges.
  • Current or history of skin cancer, as well as any other type of cancer, or pre malignant moles.
  • Severe concurrent conditions, such as cardiac disorders.
  • Pregnancy and nursing.
  • Impaired immune system, such as AIDS and HIV, or use of immuno-suppressive medications.
  • Diseases which may be stimulated by light at the wavelengths used, such as history of Systemic Lupus, Erythematosus, Porphyria and Epilepsy.
  • Patients with a history of diseases stimulated by heat, such as recurrent Herpes Simplex in the treatment area, may be treated only following a prophylactic regime.
  • Poorly controlled endocrine disorders, such as diabetes or Poly Cystic Ovary.
  • Any active condition in the treatment area, such as sores, psoriasis, eczema or undiagnosed rashes.
  • Facial laser resurfacing and deep chemical peeling within the last 3 months, if face is treated.
  • Any surgical procedure in the treatment area within the last 3 months or before complete healing.

A number of medical conditions and diseases can be contraindicated for the treatment. They must be checked with your doctor. For some contraindicated conditions and medications and/or supplements we may need a certificate from your doctor regarding suitability of the treatment in order to perform the treatments. If you are in any doubt and the answers to your questions are not contained within this site, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to discuss the treatments with you in more detail.

All off-the-shelf creams or salon-based treatments either bleach the skin, causing irreparable damage to the connective tissues and simply masking the appearance, or use a variety of chemicals and compounds to modify the skin’s bio-chemistry. Only Sussex Laser Lipo’s unique Stretch Mark Reduction Treatment leverages the most advanced technology available to safely stimulate the totally natural re-construction of the connective tissues within the skin. All this is achieved without introducing and chemicals, needles or foreign bodies and only through the stimulation of completely natural bodily processes!

The Stretch Mark Reduction Treatments can be used to target many areas of the body where angry red stretch marks are apparent. The most common areas targeted are :-

> Stomach (Abdomen) > Thighs > Upper & Lower back > Arms (under biceps)

Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment – with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother and the redness within the stretch marks noticeably reducing after the first 2-3 treatments. With a course of treatments, these results will be cumulative. Once the course is completed, final results will be most apparent after 6-8 weeks.

Most clients have told us that the treatment is extremely comfortable and pleasant, feeling like a gentle deep heating sensation beneath their skin.

Most patients find the Stretch Mark Reduction treatments extremely comfortable and liken them to a warm deep tissue massage. The treatments are customised to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level, which will be closely monitored by the technician throughout the treatment. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear redder than usual for several hours, but this subside very quickly.

Yes. The focused RF energies applied by during the Stretch Mark Reduction Treatments are extremely safe and the entire process is completely non-invasive. The process has undergone examination and assessment by several medical bodies. We use the most advanced technology available and have one of the most experienced technicians in the country providing treatments, so you are in extremely safe hands.
