You no longer have to be self-conscious when wearing a swimming suit or bikini! Stretch marks can be a thing of the past with the help of our team at Thrive Med Spa and Wellness in Honolulu, Hawaii! These marks on the skin that can develop due to weight fluctuations can be embarrassing for some but are often just caused by the stretching of the skin in short periods. They are most common in pregnant women who experience rapid weight gain and then eventual loss.

How can I address stretch marks?

With microneedling and PRP, we can significantly decrease stretch marks to restore your natural skin. Stretch marks are caused by broken down collagen and microneedling stimulates the growth of new collagen. The process stimulates remodeling of the skin in the area to drastically improve the appearance so that you can wear whatever you want to the beach. PRP injections require a blood draw in our office, which is then broken down to remove the platelet-rich plasma that can offer skin regeneration. Microneedling uses a device with tiny needles to puncture a specific area of the skin and stimulate the skin’s natural healing process. Together, PRP injections and microneedling can significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the face and body.

What are some other ways that stretch marks can be improved?

In addition to microneedling and PRP, other options are available for treating stretch marks. These include laser therapy, chemical peels, and topical creams or oils. It is critical to consult with a qualified professional like Dr. Scott Sanderson at Thrive Med Spa and Wellness to determine the best treatment plan for your unique needs and find the most appropriate solution to achieve the desired results!
