Dermabrasion And Stretch Marks

Share |

Stretch marks are an unfortunate part of life for many people. Whether you have stretch marks from pregnancy, or whether your stretch marks came as a result of a period of rapid weight loss or rapid weight gain, unsightly stretch marks can affect your self-image, and can make you feel rather unattractive. While stretch marks do fade over time, they generally won’t just disappear on their own. Usually, stretch marks will require some form of treatment in order to lessen their impact. Dermabrasion is one of the ways that people have used in order to help treat skin that has experienced stretch marks.

Dermabrasion, also known as microdermabrasion, is a procedure during which the treatment provider will use a dermabrasion device on your skin. This device will cause your skin to be broken up by a fine spray of crystals. These may be salt crystals, aluminum oxide crystals, sodium bicarbonate crystals, or even diamond-tipped crystals. In some cases, dermabrasion treatment may use more than one type of crystal. There is a similar procedure under which a vacuum-style device is used to remove dead skin, which will help to enhance the skin texture. Often, a person will need several dermabrasion treatments to effectively deal with their stretch marks. Dermabrasion, whether it is for the purpose of treating stretch marks or some other purpose, is generally performed by a qualified and licensed health care provider.

Prior to trying dermabrasion to treat stretch marks, many people will consider the use of a variety of skin creams and lotions. Some of these creams and lotions are more effective than others. There are even all-natural, plant-based oils and lotions, some of which use herbs like chamomile and other ingredients like Vitamin E to help reduce the impact of stretch marks. Many people have found that these sorts of treatments work for them, and eliminate the need to consider a radical treatment like dermabrasion to help with their stretch marks.
