What Are Stretch Marks?

Their official name is striae distensae. They are scars, the result of skin stretching beyond its capacity. When that happens, internal fibres and collagen tear. Even though we don’t feel stretch marks developing, they are injuries to our skin that begin from within instead of on the surface. The damage is deeper than it might appear, which is why stretch marks are considered one of the toughest skin conditions to treat. Stretch marks are common because there are so many ways they can occur.

  • More than 70% of pregnant women develop stretch marks on their abdomen or breasts.
  • Many teens – both boys and girls – develop stretch marks due to growth spurts.
  • Rapid weight gain often causes stretch marks.
  • Over-ambitious muscle-building activities can cause stretch marks. The muscle grows so fast the skin cannot keep up.
  • Some medical conditions or medications can make your body more susceptible to stretch marks.

There’s nothing painful or medically dangerous about stretch marks, but many of us really dislike the way they look. That’s especially true if they’re located where others may see them. They may fade over time, but they do not disappear on their own. Frustrating? Yes. But not hopeless.

Is There Anything You Can Do?

The first thing to know is that over-the-counter and home remedies do not work. A few might seem to provide slight improvement. And creams, oils and ointments certainly feel good as you massage them into your skin. But the value stops there.

But don’t despair! The Flawless Skin Pen Precision treatment is clinically proven through decades of research to improve and even erase the appearance of stretch marks from the skin through a process call tissue remodelling.

What is tissue remodelling?

The SkinPen® Precision device works by creating millions of controlled microscopic channels in the skin. This simple procedure activates the skin’s natural wound healing process – inflammation, proliferation, and tissue remodelling – to prompt tissue remodelling without causing scar tissue formation, resulting in healthy, glowing, and radiant-looking skin.

Is SkinPen Precision Natural?

SkinPen® Precision is a completely natural treatment to jump-start your new collagen with no heat, no chemicals, or invasive injections helping to achieve a youthful-looking appearance.
SkinPen® Precision lets you use the power of your body’s own collagen do the job – naturally!

How long will it take for results?

A course of 6 treatments over a 6 month period is recommended for stretch marks, but results can begin to show from session 3 onwards!
