You can get rid of stretch marks after childbirth in Lviv with a modern Harmony XL Pro laser which guarantees an effective and painless procedure. It is important to note that it is impossible to get rid of old stretch marks in one session, especially when it comes to more delicate areas (chest, abdomen).

You should come to the laser resurfacing procedure in loose clothes which does not fit tight to your body to avoid any discomfort after the procedure.

In order to remove stretch marks on the abdomen, you need to perform the following steps:

  • Preparation of the skin area before resurfacing. Special skin cleansers are used, as well as local anesthesia.
  • The main stage is the removal of stretch marks after childbirth, which lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour. It is followed by a re-treatment of the skin, which prevents the appearance of various infections.
  • The final stage – the specialist advises the patient on the further proper care of the affected skin areas to maintain the results. The course consists of 6 to 10 procedures with 4-6 weeks frequency.

When using Harmony XL Pro laser, the beam directly affects the surface of the damaged area of skin and thus starts the process of tissue repair, stimulating the formation of collagen. In turn, collagen serves as the main substitute for connective tissue. Thus, the skin becomes clean, elastic and healthy, which allows to get rid of stretch marks after childbirth.

You do not need to follow any strict diet or give up bad habits before you start a course to remove stretch marks on the chest. During the preparation process the patient should use creams that were previously prescribed by a doctor, as well as refrain from visiting the solarium and beaches (sunbathing is not recommended). In addition, the patient is not recommended to do peels that can damage the upper layer of the epidermis.

Rehabilitation period

Upon completion of stretch marks removal on the abdomen after childbirth, the patient will have a short rehabilitation period lasting 2-4 days only. During these days, you may notice a slight redness or slight swelling on the surface of the skin.

In order to restore the water balance of the skin as soon as possible, it is recommended to use special moisturizers.

What causes stretch marks

The appearance of stretch marks after childbirth or abrupt weight loss is associated with the loss of the former elasticity of the skin and its subsequent inability to regenerate. In this case, the main cause of such consequences is a decrease in the required amount of collagen and elastin production of fibroblasts.

Such scars are associated with microtraumas that form in the reticular layer of the dermis, as well as in the subcutaneous fat. The epidermis remains intact. When collagen and elastin fibers rupture, a gap is formed, which eventually fills with connective tissue.

As a result, stretch marks appear for a number of reasons:

  • Severe stretching of the skin with sudden weight gain in adolescents and adults.
  • When building muscle mass, as well as when using steroids.
  • Hereditary predisposition.
  • Consequences of various diseases (adolescent hypercorticism, etc.).
  • Improper nutrition (insufficient amount of protein in the diet, which is responsible for skin elasticity).
  • Insufficient amount of water in the body, which leads to dehydration.

Stretch marks after childbirth are among the most common cosmetic defects.

Varieties of stretch marks

All stretch marks are classified by time of appearance: fresh and old. The first category includes scar defects that appeared less than 6 months ago. Stretch marks that are 6 months or older are considered old.

Based on the location of the skin relief, the following types of scars are distinguished:

  • retracted
  • bulging, which when pressed on easily fail inside
  • leveled with the skin

How to prevent formation of stretch marks

It is impossible to get rid of stretch marks on the legs or other parts of the body with the help of ordinary creams and oils. Oils and creams, the composition of which is specially designed to increase the degree of elasticity of the skin, will help to prevent their appearance. In this case, pregnant and breastfeeding women should refrain from using products that include vitamin A and salicylic acid.

Instead, it is recommended to use creams that contain the following components:

  • jojoba oil
  • almond
  • hyaluronic acid

It is necessary to abandon the use of special massage brushes and folk methods that will not help get rid of stretch marks on the buttocks, but injure the skin instead: microcracks appear on the surface, which are not always visible to the naked eye.

Regarding creams or ointments for stretch marks after childbirth, they prevent the formation of such defects, but do not get rid of them completely.

The most powerful laser of 2020 Harmony XL Pro (Alma), which is used by specialists in the Aesthetic Medicine Clinic Myroslava Novosilska, will help to remove stretch marks after childbirth. The efficiency of this equipment has been repeatedly proven in the process of working with different types of stretch marks.
