Stretch marks are thin, streak-like lines that develop on the skin when stretched rapidly. They commonly occur during pregnancy, significant weight fluctuations, or growth spurts. Stretch marks are characterized by a different texture and color than the surrounding skin, often appearing as pink, purple, or white lines. They most commonly affect the abdomen, breasts, thighs, hips, and buttocks.
Scars result from the body’s natural healing after an injury or surgery. They can vary in appearance and texture, depending on factors such as the depth and location of the wound, as well as the individual’s healing process. Scars can be raised, depressed, discolored, or have an irregular texture.
The first step in pursuing stretch mark and scar removal at Columbus OB/GYN is to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced providers. During this consultation, we will assess your concerns, examine the affected area, and discuss your treatment options. We will explain the benefits, risks, and expected outcomes of each procedure and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Laser therapy is a commonly used and highly effective treatment for both stretch marks and scars. During the procedure, a specialized laser device delivers targeted energy to the affected area, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. This helps to improve skin texture, reduce discoloration, and promote overall skin rejuvenation. Laser therapy is non-invasive, virtually painless, and requires little to no downtime.
Microneedling is another effective treatment option for stretch marks and scars. This procedure involves using a device equipped with fine needles that create tiny punctures on the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, this leads to smoother, more evenly toned skin. Microneedling is minimally invasive and can be performed with or without the application of topical numbing cream.
In addition to laser therapy and microneedling, topical treatments such as creams, gels, and ointments may be recommended to complement your stretch mark and scar removal treatment. These topical products can help improve skin texture, promote collagen production, and fade discoloration over time. Our providers will guide you in selecting the most suitable topical treatment for your needs.
After your stretch mark and scar removal procedure, our team will provide specific post-treatment instructions to ensure optimal healing and results. This may include skincare recommendations, avoiding sun exposure, and using sunscreen to protect the treated area. We will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
