What causes stretch marks?

To understand how stretch marks are most effectively treated, it helps to have some knowledge about the cause of stretch marks. Technically speaking, stretch marks are the result of damage to collagen and elastin fibers within the middle layer of skin, called the dermis. When the skin is stretched significantly and/or over a short period of time, stretch marks are more likely to occur. Common factors that contribute to the development of stretch marks include:

  • Rapid weight gain
  • Rapid muscle gain
  • Pregnancy
  • Physical changes during puberty
  • Genetics

What is RF skin resurfacing?

Radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing is a highly versatile treatment that offers a number of rejuvenating benefits for the skin on the face and body. Using the advanced RF MICRO system, our expert Halina combines the power of radiofrequency energy with the benefits of a dermaroller, creating micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen from deep within. This, along with the RF heat energy, works to reduce a number of imperfections and skin flaws, including:

  • Dark spots
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Acne scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Can RF skin resurfacing help stretch marks?

Yes! Because the radiofrequency energy penetrates to the deeper dermis layer to trigger collagen production and skin remodeling, it is a fantastic option for the noninvasive treatment of stretch marks. As new, healthy collagen and skin cells are generated, patients often notice smoother skin and less visible stretch marks over time.
