When we think of our stretch marks, it’s rare that we ever have a good thing to say about them. Whether we choose to cover them up, slap creams on our body hoping for the ripples to smooth out or simply choose not to look at them, they can really play a massive role in diminishing someone’s self-esteem. Some people, on the other hand, see them as war scars or a beautiful reminder of becoming a mother- with a study proving that over 50% of women experience stretch marks during pregnancy.
If you’re apart of the large portion of people who believe that their stretch marks aren’t appealing or beautiful like yourself, then this is the blog post for you. Did you know that the prevalence of stretch marks has been reported to range from 50% to 90% of the population?
With so many treatments on offer to you, ranging from Radio Frequency therapy to Collagen Induction Therapy, the most effective non-invasive treatment always gets forgotten about: a PDO Thread Lift. Continue reading this blog post for a thorough look into stretch marks, as well as how you can banish stretch marks with a thread lift.
Stretch marks are a skin defect that comes in the form of long, narrow streaks, stripes or lines that can be found on most areas of the body. Stretch marks are a type of scarring, and this scarring is a result of the skin not being able to resume to its former state after a period of intense growth which is often due to pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss or puberty.
Stretch marks are most common on the hips, arms, legs, stomach and chest. In most cases, people will get bullied for having stretch marks if they are accumulated at a young age, but what needs to be remembered is that stretch marks are simply a consequence of growing, so for some people, they are inevitable.
Although there are over-the-counter creams, gels and oils that are designed to combat stretch mark scarring such as BioOil, these sometimes only temporarily rid of the problem or minimise the appearance very slightly. Because of this, people sought after a more permanent and effective solution to being rid of their stretch marks.
Here at Thread Lift Experts, we administer industry-leading thread lift treatments that are known for their revolutionary results that come at no cost of downtime and bare minimal side effects. For stretch marks, we recommend a non-barbed thread lift that focuses solely on rejuvenating the surface of the skin and reducing the appearance of skin ripples: Collagen Threads.
Our Collagen Thread Lifts are especially effective for scarring due to their collagen renewal abilities. They are able to reignite the body with this protein, leaving a smooth, clear and rejuvenated surface.
Once the dissolvable unbarbed collagen threads are inserted into the dermis of the skin using a very fine needle, they cause trauma to the skin tissue. Like with any injury, our body automatically starts its natural healing process to heal the wound. During healing, new fibroblast cells are produced, which in turn create new collagen cells; this is called Collagenesis.
These cells are then covered over for protection from the fibroblasts. This process is known as banking collagen. When banked, collagen can continue its effects on the skin for months post-treatment, even after the threads are completely dissolved. With a stimulated production of new collagen cells, your skin’s scarring will begin to reduce in appearance, while the surface also becomes firmer and brighter.
With any wound, new collagen is produced to heal and strengthen the harmed area. Collagen is one of the most vital proteins of the body that is found in the skin, bones, muscles and even tissues of the body. Collagen plays a crucial role in keeping the structure of the body intact, as well as our skin plump, smooth, firm and youthful.
Another contributing factor to getting rid of stretch marks is through the threads breaking the bands found under the stretch marks. The collagen threads’ screw threads are able to break down these bands, causing the mark itself to be disfigured and eventually, reduce in appearance.
After treatment, you will instantly see an improvement in the appearance of your stretch marks, and this will only continue as the weeks go by. In terms of downtime, most clients return to their daily activities on the same day. Side effects are minimal but can be and are not limited to tenderness, redness and bruising.
