Stretch Mark Removal Sydney- Sublative
Stretch marks occur in both men and women, but are more common in women, with up to 90% of women experiencing stretch marks during puberty, pregnancy or rapid weight gain. Men experience stretch marks from rapid weight gain. Although stretch marks are not a medical problem, they can cause embarrassment and self-consciousness.
If you are upset or distressed about your stretch marks, there is a safe and effective treatment option available that will improve their appearance and give you back your confidence.
What are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks, also called Striae are areas of skin that look like red or purple bands, strips, or lines. As the name suggests, stretchmarks are the result of the skin stretching, whether the stretch is excessive or minimal.
There are a number of causes, but the most common are:
- rapid changes in weight
- adolescent growth spurts, or
- increased level of the hormone cortisol.
SublativeTM Technology Removing Stretchmarks
SublativeTM technology is neither laser nor light based. Instead, this one-of-a-kind technology uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency (RF) directed to the skin in the form of a matrix. This fractional delivery of RF energy initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermal layer while also minimizing the damage to the epidermis. The thermal damage stimulates collagen and elastin production at the site of the stretch mark. The stretch marks are reduced and less pronounced, and discoloration is reduced as healing occurs from the inside out.
