Stretch Marks Removal in Bangalore

For most women, the feeling of being truly complete comes with the confirmation of their pregnancy – the fact that they are about to become a mother is what makes them the happiest and the next few months are spent on taking care of the life growing within them. However, once the baby is born, most mothers are concerned about the stretch marks that appear. While many women wear the stretch marks as signs of victory, there are those who want to get rid of the marks as soon as possible.

The medical term for stretch marks is striae distensae and although most people connect it exclusively with pregnancy, the fact of the matter is that it can come due to other reasons as well. For instance, if you lose a massive amount of weight, you will notice stretch marks. Most commonly, stretch marks can be seen on the stomach, but it can also be visible on upper thighs, chest and the area around the armpits. Even though most people try over the counter creams to get rid of these stretch marks, most of them will not work and even if they work, they will only lighten the marks. If you want to get rid of the marks completely, then you need to head to the best clinic for stretch marks removal in Bangalore.

Welcome to AK Clinics Bangalore, where we offer you the best treatment for the complete removal of all types of stretch marks. Using modern technology, we can ensure that all stretch marks are removed permanently and without much discomfort to you.

What causes stretch marks?

There are mainly two reasons for stretch marks – pregnancy or the sudden loss of weight. However, there are certain other reasons that could cause stretch marks, such as:

  • Excessive stretching of the skin
  • Puberty
  • Extremely large breast implants
  • Excessive use of certain types of steroids
  • Damage to the elastic fibres that are naturally present in the skin
  • Inflammation within the skin

How are stretch marks diagnosed?

Before stretch marks removal treatment in Bangalore can be started, it is important that a proper diagnosis be done. Because stretch marks have been around for a very long time, they are actually quite easy to identify, however, it is better that you ask a doctor or a dermatologist to confirm the same. These are the things that the doctors at AK Clinics will be looking for, while diagnosing your stretch marks:

  • Stretch marks are generally lighter in the normal skin colour
  • In some cases, the marks could be light red or pinkish in colour
  • These are not itchy or painful
  • There are not any other scars or marks on the stretch marks

Stretch Marks Treatments Benefits

When you are thinking that you need to locate the best stretch marks removal clinic near me, you should be able to find even all the benefits, simply by talking to the experienced professionals.

  • The most obvious benefits of getting stretch marks treatment is of course having skin that looks smooth and beautiful. Given that Indian women often have to wear sarees or outfits that could show off the midriff area, stretch marks often look slightly distasteful. Getting rid of these stretch marks, can ensure a better look.
  • In case the stretch marks have been caused by weight loss, getting them removed would not only hide the weight loss, but also give you greater confidence.
  • And if the stretch marks have been caused due to any medical conditions, then removing them would mean removing traces of the condition altogether.

How are stretch marks treated?

The best way to treat stretch marks is to take precautions right from the beginning, which is actually possible with pregnancy. Studies have shown that keeping the skin hydrated or moisturised can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. While it might be treated like an old wives tale, but not scratching the tummy during pregnancy can also reduce the appearance.Here are some of the most common ways of treating stretch marks:

There are several methods used for stretch marks removal treatment in Bangalore AK Clinics, but we are true believers of the fact that prevention is better than cure. If you take proper care of yourself during your pregnancy, the chances of stretch marks emerging are minimal. There are several studies that have shown that if you keep your skin hydrated and nourished during the pregnancy, the emergence of stretch marks will be reduced. Similarly, not scratching your stomach can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

Perhaps the easiest method of stretch marks removal in Bangalore would be prescription medicines such as Retin-A or Tazorac gels, which help with the stimulation of collagen in the body. When there is more collagen in the body, the skin is able to bounce back so much more easily. However, these treatments work best when the stretch marks are fresh. If you are pregnant, you can come and talk to our specialist doctors, who will prescribe you medications that you can apply during your pregnancy to avoid stretch marks. We will ensure that the medication has absolutely no adverse effects on the foetus.

Another method used by us for stretch marks removal in Bangalore is dermabrasion – the method gently peels away the topmost layer of the skin, enticing new skin cells to grow and form. Once these new skin cells form, the stretch marks will start to fade away. Chemical peels also work in a similar manner – they will remove the top most layer of the skin, revealing healthier skin underneath and eventually fading the stretch marks away.

However, the most promising results have been with laser treatment for stretch marks in Bangalore. The skin is pulled to make it taut and a special gel is applied to the areas where the stretch marks are most prominent. Then the laser is applied to the areas, penetrating deep into the skin and this process encourages the production of collagen. Once the collagen production is initiated, the skin will become healthier and the stretch marks will start to fade away.

Available Treatments for Stretch Marks in Bangalore

During pregnancy, there are some tips and tricks that you could keep in mind that could help reduce stretch marks naturally – for instance, you can use a really thick body butter on your tummy and upper thighs, because regular moisturization can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

However, if you have gotten the stretch marks, there are plenty of medical methods to treat them and some of the most popular ones include:

Retin-A / Tazorac gels

Prescription medicines such as Retin-A or Tazorac gels are known to help with the stimulation of collagen in the body, which can make the skin smoother and reduce the visibility of stretch marks. However, these medicines are known to work more effectively on fresh stretch marks, which is why pregnant women can ask their doctors for a prescription.

Laser Therapy

Popular stretch marks removal treatments in Bangalore include laser therapy, including pulsed dye, fractional CO2 and excimer laser therapy. These painless therapies are aimed at naturally increasing collagen levels in the body, which in turn revert skin back to normalcy. While the pulsed therapy works better on new stretch marks, fractional CO2 is known to be working on old stretch marks as well.

Cosmetic Treatment

Cosmetic methods such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion are also known to help with stretch marks. In a chemical peel, an acidic solution is used to ‘burn’ off the top layer of the skin to reveal healthier skin underneath. Microdermabrasion also helps remove the top layer of the skin, with the help of tiny crystals and this too can help reduce the obviousness of stretch marks.

RF Treatment

Radiofrequency and ultrasound are also used to reduce stretch marks – both these procedures utilize radio wave energy, which penetrates the skin and creates heat deep within. This heat not only jumpstarts the natural collagen production; it also helps tighten the skin and improve the condition of stretch marks. In addition, certain cosmetic surgeries, such as tummy tucks could also help reduce the visibility of stretch marks.

Before, During and After Procedure

The precautions that need to be taken before, during and after each of these procedures will vary from procedure to procedure. However, the general precautions will be somewhat similar:

Before

Because the procedures are based on the skin, you might be asked to keep your skin clean and free from all chemicals. Your cosmetologist could also ask you to not wear any makeup or cosmetic products including body creams or moisturizers. Once you are at the stretch marks removal clinic in Bangalore, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed again. In certain cases, you might be asked to stop particular medications or you might be prescribed alternative medication.

During

Depending on the procedure being done, your skin where the stretch marks are most present will be treated. The required gels or acid solutions will be applied to the skin and the appropriate medical devices will be used. At places like AK Clinics, modern equipment and highly trained staff will ensure that the procedure is done in the best manner with immense care.

After

Once the procedure has been completed, you will be given advice on what precautions need to be taken. These could vary from not exposing the skin to sunlight to not applying any products for a few days. You might be asked to wear loose fitting clothes for a few days and for certain procedures, you might be asked to apply certain medications on the treated area as well.

It is imperative that you carefully adhere to all the instructions given to you by the doctors, for before, during and after the procedure.

FAQ's

The basic tenet behind almost all the stretch mark removal procedures is to either remove the top layer of the skin and reveal healthier and better looking skin, that is sitting just underneath. Alternately, the procedures could be looking at instigating natural collagen production, which rejuvenates the skin from within.

No, none of these procedures, apart from a full tummy tuck is ‘painful’. There could be a slight amount of discomfort, but nothing more than that.

If the procedures have been done by a professional, with experience and expertise and if the procedure has been done in a proper clinic, then there is nothing to worry about.

This is something that will be dependent on a range of factors, including the amount of stretch marks, the intensity of the marks, how old they are and the procedure that is being chosen. Only a qualified and experienced doctor will be able to tell you how many sessions will be needed.

Yet again, this is something that will be dependent on factors like the extent of the marks, the depth and the choice of procedures. Fresh stretch marks could be removed in 3 to 5 sessions, while for older marks, it could take anywhere between 3 to 10 sessions.

Your stretch marks need not be because of being overweight or pregnancy – your could have stretch marks due to certain medical conditions or puberty. You should consult a doctor for the same.
