Whoever has striae – those unwanted red or white lines that mark the skin – know that they appear suddenly, and once installed, never disappear again, being a true nightmare in the life of those who suffer from these marks.

Whoever has striae – those unwanted red or white lines that mark the skin – know that they appear suddenly, and once installed, never disappear again, being a true nightmare in the life of those who suffer from these marks.

But if on the one hand these lesions cannot be totally eliminated, on the other hand, there are already esthetic treatments capable of attenuating the stretch marks, softening their texture and coloration and making them practically imperceptible in the skin. Micro Dermabrasion is one of them.

What is microdermabrasion for stretch marks

Microdermabrasion – also called crystal peeling – is one of the most accomplished aesthetic treatments in the United States and brings excellent results in the treatment of stretch marks. The procedure consists of the exfoliation of the affected region using microcrystals, which promote removal of the most superficial layer of the skin and favor skin regeneration, resulting in a smoother, more uniform and elastic skin, with smoothed and less apparent streaks.

How the procedure is done

Microdermabrasion for stretch marks is a simple procedure that does not use incisions in the skin that is a non-invasive treatment.

It uses a vacuum system that promotes the spraying of aluminum oxide microcrystals over the area to be treated, promoting a mechanical exfoliation that removes the most superficial layer of skin while suction removes dead cells.

This abrasion by microcrystals stimulates the skin of the treated region to regenerate, increasing the production of collagen, a natural protein that imparts tone and elasticity to the skin. This new collagen promotes the reduction of the size of the stria, approaching its edges and reducing its depth.

The duration of the session depends on the length of the region being treated but usually ranges from 30 to 60 minutes. It does not cause pain in the patient, only a slight burning.

Microdermabrasion does not require rest and the patient can resume his activities after the session. For simplicity and rapid recovery, you only need to follow the recommendations made by your dermatologist. Although it is a simple procedure, it should also not be used in pregnant or lactating women.

Results and sessions

Micro dermabrasion for stretch marksAs with all treatment for stretch marks, microdermabrasion results in gradual results and these are observed more quickly in cases of red striations, which are newer and easier to treat. But in the long run, the white stretch marks are also benefited by the treatment.

The number of sessions varies from person to person, but generally, treatments for stretch marks are long and may require 10 to 15 sessions, with intervals of 20 days between them.

The results may take a while, but it’s worth it. At the end of the treatment, it is possible to notice a significant reduction in the size and depth of the striae, an improvement in its texture and coloration and also in the general appearance of the skin.
