Understanding a Stretch-mark Reduction
Stretch-marks are completely normal for most people. They can come as a result of pregnancy, weight loss or weight gain, exercise and puberty. Whilst it is normal for people to have stretch-marks, some people find that they suffer from a lack of confidence or simply do not like their appearance of them. This is why we offer a stretch-mark reduction in Wollongong.
Stretch-marks can appear all over the body, from the abdomen and breasts to the buttocks and hips. They occur when the skin is stretched quickly and it is due to the collagen and elastin break-up in the skin.
Additionally, stretch-marks can appear differently. They can span a vast range of colours from red to dark brown and can appear differently due to your skin pigmentation. Initially, they may even be raised and itchy to touch.
In order to reduce the appearance of stretch-marks, there are a few different techniques that may be used. Two examples of these are laser stretch mark removal and micro needling stretch mark treatment. When you visit our outstanding facility, you may have an initial consultation to decide which option may be best for you.
