What is the Best Medical Treatment for Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks do fade in time, but it takes many months and years. Medical procedures can effectively speed up the process, though these cannot make stretch marks vanish completely.

The stretch marks treatment in Delhi available at our premier skin facility, Mehektagul Dermaclinic. It encompasses a range of specialized procedures designed to address and manage stretch marks effectively. These include: 

  • Laser Resurfacing
    Laser resurfacing is where laser light is focused directly on the stretch marks. The pulsating light penetrates the layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and create smoother skin. The results can be seen soon after the treatment and will continue for a long time. However, there may be side effects like pigmentation, swelling, etc. 
  • Microneedling 
    Microneedling is the process of poking tiny punctures into the area with stretch marks to promote collagen production and healing. It increases skin elasticity and creates firmer skin. You will need around three to six treatment sessions and have to wait for four to six months to see the results. Bruising, infection, and skin darkening are some side effects. For more details on microneedling stretch marks treatment cost in Delhi, visit Mehektagul Dermaclinic. 
  • Dermabrasion
    Dermabrasion is where a rotating device is used to sand the top layer of the skin. This promotes the body to produce more collagen and heal the affected area. Thus, the stretch marks will lighten as new and smooth skin forms there. It takes around two weeks for the skin to heal. You have to wait for a few more weeks to see the results. Bruising, swelling, and hyperpigmentation are some side effects. 
  • Excimer Laser Therapy 
    Excimer laser therapy stimulates melanin production to create an even skin tone and cover the stretch marks. It requires multiple treatment sessions and may lead to hyperpigmentation if the body produces excessive melanin. 
  • Pulsed Dye Laser Therapy
    Pulsated laser light is used to stimulate elastin and collagen production. It works better on newer stretch marks, though it will cause skin discolouration in people with darker skin tones. 
  • Fractional CO2 Laser Therapy 
    Also called fractional photothermolysis, this therapy works on small areas and is similar to pulsed dye laser treatment. However, it has fewer side effects and causes less potential damage to the skin. 
  • Radiofrequency
    A special medical device releases radiofrequency energy into the stretch marks to stimulate collagen production. A small study shows that this treatment is safe enough. However, more research needs to be done to know the long-term effects of radiofrequency therapy on stretch marks. 
  • Chemical Peel
    Chemical peels are applied to the stretch marks to remove the top layers of the skin and promote healing and new skin formation. This leaves the skin red and sensitive for a few days. Chemical peels should not be used as OTC (over-the-counter) products as they can burn the skin and result in long-term damage. 
  • Ultrasound
    Ultrasound works similarly to radiofrequency treatments, where sound waves are sent deep into the skin to heat and tighten the skin layers. They promote collagen production to improve skin elasticity and reduce stretch marks. Multiple sessions may be required to get the desired results. 
  • Home Care for Stretch Marks 
    Though there is little proof that home remedies can remove stretch marks, a few methods can reduce their visibility over time. However, these should not be tried without consulting a doctor. Ask the dermatologist to prescribe home care solutions for mild stretch marks. Some of the home care methods are:
  • Tre-tin-oin
    Tre-tin-oin is a reti-no-l-derived component that promotes collagen production. It is used to treat wrinkles and may cause newer stretch marks to fade with regular use. However, it can also cause the skin to turn red, scaly, and itchy. It is a topical application.
  • Hyaluronic Acid
    Creams and serums with hyaluronic acid can be applied to stretch marks to improve skin hydration and elasticity and reduce the visible lines. 
  • Herbal Oil
    Herbal oil builds up skin tissue and boosts collagen production. It is an OTC (over-the-counter) product with no guaranteed results. 
  • Moisturizers
    Despite the lack of evidence, moisturizers containing vitamin E, cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil, etc., can be applied and massaged into newer stretch marks. The results, if visible, can be noticed only after many months.
