Striae, or stretch marks, show up as indented streaks on your body. They can appear on your arms, abdomen, hips, breasts, or buttocks. While they may fade over time, there are cases when they may also never disappear. Stretch marks don’t necessarily require treatment, but many would prefer not to have them. At Greater Miami Skin & Laser Center, you can finally address stretch marks effectively through cutting-edge treatment with Morpheus8.
Causes of Stretch Marks
When your skin stretches, it can cause stretch marks. The severity of their appearance depends on several factors, including the amount of stress on your skin and your genetics.
The amount of cortisol your body produces may also be a factor. Produced by the adrenal gland, this hormone causes the elastic fibers in your skin to weaken.
You are also more likely to get stretch marks if you are female, have breast enlargement surgery, grow quickly in adolescence, and use anabolic steroids.
How Morpheus8 Helps Get Rid of Stretch Marks
Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency therapy and microneedling to create clearer skin. It can be used on almost any area of your body and is customized to treat your primary areas of concern. Morpheus8 can minimize:
- Fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Dull skin
- Loss of skin elasticity
The treatment uses radiofrequency to target deep layers of skin with micro pins. The stimulation encourages collagen to grow and cells to turn over rapidly, renewing the epidermis. The new skin has more elasticity and is softer and brighter, giving you a younger appearance.
Many people see results within a few days of treatment. Your skin will continue improving over time, with most patients seeing the best results after about three weeks.
