Dermaroller treatment to improve stretch marks


Stretch marks can occur in both men and women, though they tend to appear more often in women.

Most commonly affected areas in women tend to be around the hips, thighs, buttocks and lower back. And men who train with weights often get stretch marks where there has been rapid muscle growth – particularly on the arms and shoulders.

Though they fade with time from angry red to a silvery white, stretch marks can still cause embarrassment and self-consciousness, which can in turn affect enjoyment of holidays, swimming etc.

So what exactly are stretch marks?

Stretch marks are essentially tears or rips which have occurred in the deeper layers of the skin when it has stretched beyond its limits.

The resulting stretch marks contain tough scar tissue which is formed when the tears in the skin heal.

How does the Dermaroller help to treat stretch marks?

Dermaroller is used as a treatment to help fade, though not cure, stretch marks through stimulating the body to repair the scarred tissue.

Lots of very fine needles mounted onto the roller are rolled across the skin, with firm pressure applied so these micro needles penetrate the skin to the depth of the scarred tissue.

This perceived damage to the skin kick-starts the body’s protective mechanism, and the skin is stimulated to rebuild itself by producing more collagen – the skin’s ‘building block’.

This helps to plump up and diminish the appearance of stretch marks.
