Stretch Mark and Cellulite Treatment
Stretch Mark Treatment
Stretch marks are narrow stripes, streaks, or lines that develop on the skin and show up when the skin is suddenly stretched. While stretch marks are extremely common, they are something many people don’t want to live with. There are a few things that commonly cause stretch marks including pregnancy, puberty, and rapid weight gain. While stretch marks do not cause any serious issues, they can cause a person to feel self-conscious.
At Carole Neuman, MD Aesthetics & Gynecology, we can help reduce the appearance of your stretch marks and help you feel comfortable in your own skin again. Our stretch mark treatment is done with microneedling. Microneedling is a treatment that creates micro-dermal injuries to your skin with a small device. These micro-injuries stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, which cause the skin to become tighter and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or in this case, stretch marks.
We can use microneedling to target your stretch marks, boost the production of collagen in those areas, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks, allowing you to feel more confident. This is a simple treatment that is minimally invasive and nearly painless.
Cellulite is another common body issue that many people do not want to live with. Cellulite is the term used to describe lumps and dimples in the skin. These lumps generally occur in the thighs, hips, buttocks, and belly.
While both men and women can experience cellulite, it is more common in women because they have a different distribution of muscle, fat, and connective tissue. There are different grades of cellulite based on the severity. Grade 1 is mild and refers to an “orange-peel” appearance. Grade 2 is moderate and refers to a “cottage cheese” appearance. Grade 3 is severe and refers to a “mattress” appearance.
