Stretch marks and scars can mar your otherwise smooth complexion, and in some cases lead to real feelings of self-consciousness. The good news is that there are plenty of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments that can restore your skin to crystal clarity, concealing, minimizing, or in some cases eliminating your blemishes.
We are pleased to provide a number of stretch mark treatments and scar camouflage treatments to our patients in Charlotte, NC. Consider a few of the top options that we provide here at CAMI medspa.
Stretch Mark Treatments & Scar Camouflage Treatments in Charlotte, NC
1) Permanent Makeup
One of our most popular aesthetic treatments is permanent makeup. This term can actually encompass a number of different treatments, including enhancement for the eyelashes, lips, and powder brows. For our purposes today, we’ll emphasize permanent makeup as a way to have cosmetic effects “tattooed” to your body, resulting in long-term enhancement to your complexion and pigmentation. Permanent makeup is a safe and often very effective way to conceal scars that appear on your face, including some types of acne scars.
Another option we are pleased to provide is a piece of technology called the Morpheus8 applicator. Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling technology creates “micro traumas” in your skin, triggering the body’s natural healing abilities and prompting the production of collagen. Morpheus8 is an effective way to tighten and resurface your skin, and in many cases, it can be one of our most effective stretch mark treatments, as well as a good way to minimize the appearance of acne scars.
Microneedling without the use of radiofrequency energy is also available, and it works in much the same way. Basically, tiny needles are used to make numerous micro-injuries to your skin, kickstarting the body’s natural healing ability. This typically results in smoother and tighter skin, and in many cases can be a form of scar camouflage treatment, as well. Microneedling can be performed as a PRP facial, which is drawn from your own blood and helps to promote faster, more comprehensive healing. The use of PRP can make microneedling a more positive experience, and it can enhance your end results.
BodyTite is one of our most popular body sculpting treatments, but it also happens to be one of our top stretch mark treatments. The process involves tiny access points being made in the skin, through which we will insert a thin metal probe, called a cannula. This conducts targeted RF energy, melting unwanted fat and stimulating the production of collagen. BodyTite can indeed have a tightening effect, but it can also help to smooth over any stretch marks you have in the treatment area.
5) Plasma Pen
One of the newest additions to our med spa services is the Plasma Pen. The Plasma Pen is a non-invasive skin tightening and rejuvenation treatment that triggers natural collagen production, resulting in tighter, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin. It works in much the same way that laser skin resurfacing works, but it distributes energy in a much more controlled setting. The Plasma Pen Charlotte NC can be an effective way to address stretch marks, and it often yields results in just one or two total treatment sessions. This new stretch mark treatment is well worth considering.
6) Laser Skin Resurfacing
Last on our list of recommended stretch mark treatments and scar camouflage treatments is laser skin resurfacing. Specifically, we employ broadband light therapy (BBL), which carefully removes the outermost layer of skin to reveal healthy, clear skin beneath. This is a very safe and widely used method for eliminating unwanted scars, including some types of acne scars, and potentially for clearing up stretch marks, as well.
