Overview of Scars / Stretch Marks Reduction
At Medaesthetics®, we host the most extensive range of laser and light platforms to treat almost every type of dermatological scars and stretch marks. Patients do not require a GP referral.
Puberty, pregnancy, hormonal changes and weight gain can all result in stretch marks. They occur when the skin has been stretched too far or too fast. Scars are the reminders of past skin traumas.
If unsightly scars or stretch marks are of concern to you, there is help available. Please contact us for an obligation free consultation by sending us an email, or by giving our team of professionals a call to discuss your specific requirements.
Frequently Asked Questions
At Medaethetics™, we routinely see patients with scars resulting from Breast Augmentation Surgery and Caesarean Section surgery. We also treat a large number of scars resulting from mole removals by GP's using scalpel technique and skin cancer surgery.
Stretch marks are narrow streaks or lines that occur on the surface of the skin.
Doctors refer to them as striae. Both males and females can suffer from this condition.
As mentioned above, stretch marks are the result of the skin suddenly stretching. The middle layer of skin (dermis) breaks in places, causing scarring.
Stretch marks that develop during pregnancy are known as Striae Gravidarum.
The cost of treatment/program depends upon the type and size of the area being treated. Each patient is unique and requires a different treatment regimen. This is assessed during the initial consultation which is free with our cosmetic nurses or dermal therapists. A treatment is mapped out for each client and the cost can be assessed at this time. A single treatment session can cost anywhere between $350 to $2500.
The abdomen, buttocks, breasts, upper arms and thighs are the areas of the body most commonly affected.
Not everyone gets stretch marks. People who develop them often have a genetic predisposition. Stretch marks are often more noticeable in patients with darker skin.
Stretch marks are often red or purple to start with, before gradually fading to a silvery-white colour. Stretch marks usually fade and become less noticeable over time, but this can often take years.
Unfortunately, there is no miracle treatment or cream to completely get rid of stretch marks.
If you have stretch marks you consider unsightly or marks that affect a large area of your body, you may want to try one of the treatment options available. However, it is important to understand that stretch marks are not an easy skin condition to treat. Like hormonal pigmentation and acne, stretch marks can be very resilient and treatment-resistant.
This is why, at Medaesthetics®, we have invested in the most advanced and versatile array of medical and laser treatment options available today to tackle most stretch marks. We only treat patients who have realistic expectations and are willing to allow several treatment sessions over a period to achieve maximum results.
The Medaesthetics Difference
"Art, indeed, consists in the conception of the result to be produced before its realisation in the material." - Aristotle
The practice of aesthetic medicine and surgery is as much an art as it is a science. The aesthetic sense of a clinician in evaluating a patient is as important as his or her clinical skills. At Medisculpt®, our philosophy is to artistically enhance your appearance in a way that stresses elegance over glamour.Medaesthetics Youtube Channel
