Stretch marks, usually located in the most inconvenient locations, can ruin your bestefforts at looking good.
They can cause a dramatic psychological blow to those who worked hard in shedding excess weight, only to look in the mirror and realise that the telltale signs of being over weight will always be with them!
Today, that’s not entirely true anymore!Skin Renewal Skin and Body centres use a treatment containing a new, miracle gas called Carboxytherapy - a novel, effective way in treating stretch marks.
Carboxytherapy Heated medical Carbon Dioxide is introduced into the dermis via a small needle. The body interprets this as an oxygen deficit and responds by increasing blood flow to the area. An increase in certain growth factors encourages production of new blood vessels, which provides a surge of oxygen and nutrients to the treated area.
The resultant improved blood circulation with increased oxygen concentration and long term collagen stimulation facilitates the strengthening of the dermis, which is a necessary component for a healthy, stretch mark resistant skin. After 4 to 8 treatments, the appearance of stretch marks is markedly improved.
Carboxytherapy is more effective on newer stretch marks – those with a red appearance, not silver. Older, silver-looking stretch marks can also be improved, but may need more treatment sessions at 2 to 4 weekly intervals.
Other treatments available at Skin Renewal centres that have proven efficacy in decreasing the visibility of unsightly stretch marks are:
Nimue Derma Repair Nimue Derma Repair for Scars and Stretchmarks, is a new generation, cutting edge, specialised, treatment complex for the effective management of scars and stretch marks. Based on unique Botanical extracts, Tamanu oil and Peptides are used in a nanotechnology delivery system via nanospheres to enhance penetration and efficacy.
Dermaroller There is also a fantastic treatment device that can be used in the privacy of your home, called the Dermaroller.The Dermaroller is a great way to complement the in-office treatments.It basically is a home mesotherapy procedure using the Home Care Dermaroller.
The Dermaroller Concept is undoubtedly the most highly efficient device for transdermal delivery, and an almost side-effect free concept for skin rejuvenation including stretch marks. The Dermaroller removes loose and dispensable scales on the stratum corneum, leaving the skin feeling softer, with a finer texture. Little needles 0.15 to 0.18 mm in length have a definite physiological effect on the epidermis. They stimulate the proliferation of keratinocytes that transform into keratin. The keratin finally forms “dead cells,” called scales or squames. Cell stimulation results in a faster renewal cycle of the epidermis. Keratin scales have therefore less time to age and to become grey.
Another bonus of the epidermis stimulation is an increase of the uppermost layer in thickness by 30% on average. If the Home Care Dermaroller C8 is used on a regular basis, the epidermis is increased in transparency and thickness, the simple visible answer to reduce the appearance of unsightly stretch marks.

At the Skin Renewal centres, a medical professional will analyse your need and provide a personalised treatment program to fit your budget.
