Dermaroller® – Effective Therapy for Stretch Marks

dermaroller_londonStretch marks: sadly most of us will experience these at some point in our lives, but it doesn’t mean we have to resign ourselves to being stuck with them. Striae, as they’re referred to by dermatologists, will usually make their first appearance during adolescence, when the skin is stretched just a little too quickly and the wear and tear begins to take its toll.

After the body has grown at a rate the skin simply can’t keep up with, it begins to produce these scar-like appearances. Stretch marks begin as reddish, purple lines, which are slightly indented and a different texture to the rest of your skin. Breasts, thighs, hips, the stomach: many of us will get them everywhere as a teenager. Some will fade to become thin silvery lines as we age, but pregnancy stretch marks are notoriously more stubborn and affect many women.

The ability to heal varies considerably from person to person, and is affected by your diet, whether you smoke, and – ultimately – how much collagen your skin can produce. Just like scars, wrinkles and uneven skin, stretch marks lack a sufficient amount of collagen to heal.

Of course, there have been numerous attempts to rid people of stretch marks, be it lotions and potions or even laser surgery. Varying hugely in cost and effectiveness, the treatments are centred around encouraging the skin to heal itself.

One of the latest methods in treating stretch-marks is treatment with a genuine Dermaroller® by an experienced medical practitioner.  This treatment is highly effective, yet very simple – it simply encourages the skin to produce more collagen.

Not only does Dermaroller Therapy reduce the appearance of stretch-marks, but it does it in a painless, hassle-free manner.

Indeed, over 90% of journalists who tested the treatment gave it a resounding thumbs up, with 70% opining that it was only slightly uncomfortable at worst. With over 1,000 practitioners in the UK right now, it’s safe to say that it’s now a tried and proven method. Find the right practitioner, and say hello to a yummy mummy tummy.

Dermaroller® treatment is available in Belgravia with Dr Barbara Kubicka.
