Microneedling Stretch Marks Treatment In Toronto

Stretch marks develop when the skin stretches or shrinks quickly, most commonly from rapid gain or loss of weight. The abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture, creating tears in the underlying structure and scarring the skin by causing unattractive pink, reddish or purplish streaks as the skin heals. These may fade over time, but will never disappear completely. Stretch marks can be worsened by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, hormone replacement therapy, or other changes in hormone levels.

Microneedling stretch marks treatment in Toronto is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, which is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. Every session of micro-needling helps build collagen in the skin, and the individual can see an evident change over time. 

Facts About Stretch Marks

  • Stretch marks are long, narrow streaks or stripes that occur when the skin is stretched too quickly
  • Pregnancy, puberty, and rapid weight gain or loss can all cause stretch marks.
  • There is little medical evidence available confirming the effectiveness of current treatments for stretch marks.
  • Stretch marks often fade over time without treatment and do not pose any serious long-term health risks.

The most commonly affected areas include:

  • abdomen
  • breasts
  • upper arms
  • hips
  • flanks (or sides)
  • buttocks
  • thighs

Microneedling Stretch Mark Treatment

Microneedling therapy (also referred as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy) is one of the most innovative and effective skin treatments available.

Microneedling is intended to significantly improve many skin conditions, including stretch marks. The concept of skin needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns or other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibers to produce new ones.

Skin needling enables controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by using very fine needles to puncture the skin and create micro “injuries” in the skin. This triggers new collagen synthesis, while protecting the top layer of skin and posing no risk of permanent scarring.

At Vita Cosmetic and Laser Clinic we use a variety of medical-grade microneedling devices designed for use by aesthetic medical professionals to treat melasma (skin discoloration), acne scars, and surgical scars.

Enhance, renew, and restore your natural beauty.

Is Microneedling Effective For Stretch Marks?

Microneedling is found to be highly effective for stretch marks. This was further proven in a study conducted in 2020, including a total of 25 individuals. The results of the study showed visible improvements in the stretch marks of these individuals after only 1 to 3 treatment sessions. At least one-fourth of these participants were also seen to report improvements of more than 75%.

How Does Microneedling Work For Stretch Marks Treatment?

Microneedling works by creating multiple tiny punctures in the skin containing stretch marks. These punctures are created by the microneedles found on the derma pen or derma roller. These minute punctures are created to cause enough trauma to the skin to trigger a body response. In response to this trauma, the body starts to produce higher levels of collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. These not only help heal wounds but also improve the texture of the skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Does Microneedling Stretch Marks Treatment Hurt?

Microneedling is not a painful procedure, as the needles used for this procedure are microneedles; hence they do not cause any significant trauma to the skin and are not felt by the patient. Furthermore, these microneedles are concealed inside the derma pen, so the patient cannot see these needles in most cases, to evoke panic in them. Moreover, in the majority of cases, the doctor starts the treatment by applying a numbing cream on the skin, and the procedure is only started when the numbing has become effective.

How Many Sessions Of Microneedling Do You Need For Stretch Marks Treatment?

At least three sessions of micro needling are required for the treatment of stretch marks. These may be more if the stretch marks are more severe. Each of these sessions is almost 45 minutes long and can be conducted with a gap of a few months in between.

What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling Stretch Marks Treatment?

Microneedling has a number of benefits for stretch marks over other treatments. First, it can be effectively used for individuals with all skin tones, unlike laser, which may not be used on darker skin tones. Another major benefit of micro-needling is that it is a more suitable option when larger areas of the skin are to be treated, like thighs and buttocks. Since stretch marks are usually found in these areas, it makes micro-needling is the most effective treatment option.

Enhance, renew, and restore your natural beauty.

What Should I Do Before The Stretch Marks Treatment?

Before the microneedling procedure for stretch marks, the patient is often recommended a number of pre-operative guidelines. These include to avoid using topical forms of retinoids and exfoliants on the skin to be treated with micro-needling as this might increase its sensitivity. They should not be used for at least seven days before the procedure. 

Blood thinners and anti-inflammatory agents like ibuprofen and Advil should not be taken for at least three days before the procedure, as they may increase the chances of bruising after microneedling. 

The patient is also advised not to undergo a procedure like IPL or other lasers at least two weeks before the micro-needling session. If the patient needs to shave the areas to be treated, they can do so a day before the treatment but should avoid shaving on the day of the treatment.

What Can I Expect During The Stretch Marks Treatment?

On the day of the treatment, the doctor will first start by cleaning the skin containing the stretch marks to be treated. This is to make sure that the skin is free from all oils, dirt or even makeup. 

The patient will be asked about any changes in their medical history ever since their consultation appointment. They will also be asked about their drug history to make sure they are not taking any blood thinners. 

Once the patient is cleared, the practitioner will start the procedure by applying numbing creams to the skin with stretch marks. This may be left for 20 to 30 minutes. Once the numbing cream has become effective, the micro-needling is started. The procedure can be completed within 60 minutes.

What Should I Do After The Stretch Marks Treatment?

Following micro needling for stretch marks, the patient is asked not to take any anti-inflammatory medication for at least a week. They are also advised not to use ice on the treated skin as it may interfere with the inflammatory process undergoing in the skin. This is required for proper skin rejuvenation. The patient should also avoid sun exposure and sun tanning for at least 14 days after the procedure.

How Long Does It Take For Microneedling To Show Results For Stretch Marks?

It may take four to six weeks for the patient to see visible results from a micro-needling session. After that, every consecutive session will keep improving the results until the body has produced enough collagen to heal the stretch marks completely.

How Long Do The Results Of Microneedling Stretch Marks Last?

The results of micro-needling for stretch marks are highly long-lasting. They may be seen to last for at least 3 to 5 months on their own, after which the patient is recommended to undergo an additional session. Moreover, the longevity of these results depends on other factors, like how long the collagen is able to last in the body and the severity of the stretch marks.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Microneedling Stretch Marks Treatment?

An individual may be considered a good candidate for undergoing microneedling for stretch marks treatment if they are healthy, free from any skin infection or bleeding disorders and present with shallow stretch marks.
