After you’ve lost weight following diet and exercise, bariatric surgery, or pregnancy, you want to revel in the accomplishment; whether you’re celebrating a new body or a new addition to your family.
However, stretchmarks can be an unwanted side effect of weight fluctuations. These marks, which look like indentations in your skin, typically appear along the abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks, and thighs. They aren’t harmful or painful, but many people have concerns about their appearance.
Ovation Med Spa® offers clients stretchmark reduction treatment to address these concerns. We use the Infini radiofrequency system to stimulate collagen production, encouraging firmer skin, and a reduction in lines and wrinkles.*
Common Questions about Stretchmark Reduction
Clients often want to know more about treatment, outcomes, and the technology behind stretchmark reduction. While you can expect complete details in your initial consultation with your treatment provider, here is some preliminary information.
Is it possible to reduce the appearance of stretchmarks?
Yes. Stretchmarks are the result of stretched skin fibers. Ovation Med Spa® recommends Infini for treatment because the technology encourages the development of collagen, which is crucial to stronger skin structure.
Will treatment work for me?
Since every person’s skin type and condition is different, it’s not possible to say definitively whether treatment will have the outcome you want. Generally, newer stretchmarks respond better to treatment than stretchmarks that are several years old. In some client cases, we’ve seen improvement of up to 80%.
How many stretchmark reduction treatments will I need?
Most clients have three-to-five treatments, and they take place at four-to-six-week intervals. This gives your body the time to build collagen between treatments and allows your treatment provider to target areas of need.
How soon will I see results?
Some clients see results after one or two treatments. Over time and with additional procedures, results should become even more visible as new collagen develops.
What to Expect with Stretchmark Reduction
Clients will meet with their Ovation Med Spa® treatment provider for a skin assessment. During this assessment they have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss their goals, and learn more about Infini.
The procedure itself is brief and very tolerable, according to reports from past clients:
- Your treatment provider applies a numbing cream to the area for your comfort and then guides the Infini device over the stretchmarks.
- Micro-sized needles enter the skin for a fraction of a second and deliver energy to stimulate collagen production.
- ComfortFlow technology makes the treatment faster and more comfortable.
Stretchmark reduction does not require a long or painful recovery. Clients should expect a couple of days of redness at first, followed by improvements in the appearance of the skin. By the end of treatment, stretchmarks should be visibly reduced for a more aesthetic appearance.
