Microneedling Stretch Marks
Microneedling stretch marks with Dermapen have shown some amazing results. Stretch marks can result from a whole lot of things, including pregnancy, childhood growth spurts, and genetic predisposition. The picture below depicts some outstanding results that a Dermapen microneedling patient experienced after a full treatment regiment on a large area of stretch marks on the stomach. Although results can vary from patient to patient, often there are quite drastic before-and-after picture comparisons.
Stretch marks are tears to the connective tissue of the skin, caused by over stretching of the skin. When the connective tissue is stretched, the tear results in what’s called an epidermal atrophy along the area that has been damaged. Once this happens, the epidermis becomes thin and loses it ridges, breaking the elastic fibers and causing the epidermis to retract. When you microneedle your stretch marks, it helps to promote regeneration of the skin covering those stretch marks, which restores the contours of your skin’s surface.
