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 :-
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.
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 :-
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.
