Treatment for Stretch

Nov 03, 2016 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

There are treatment options in Dallas for stretch marks. Stretch marks occur due to excessive or rapid stretching of the skin, mainly resulting from pregnancy, weight lifting, growth, rapid changes in weight, or steroid use. Their appearance differs from patient to patient. They can be red and/or white, flat, raised, and narrow or wide. Microneedling treatments can help smooth out and/or fade stretch marks while stimulating collagen, which can help plump the skin. In treating stretch marks in Dallas, the sooner the better for optimal results. It is important to keep the skin well hydrated and moisturized, and to reduce sun exposure during the duration of micro needling and/or laser treatments.
