Stretch Marks Removal In Dubai

There are various stretch marks treatments in Dubai that improve the appearance and texture of stretch marks. However, stretch marks, like other scares, are permanent so these treatments won’t completely remove them.

Most common stretch marks removal treatments

Retinoid cream: This is a topical cream derived from vitamin A that may help rebuild collagen and make stretch marks look more like normal skin. However, it can irritate the skin and should not be used by pregnant or nursing women. 

Light and laser therapies: These techniques use different types of light or laser to stimulate collagen growth or promote elasticity. They may require multiple sessions. 

Micro needling: This procedure involves a device with small needles that create tiny wounds in the skin, which then heal and produce more collagen. This can reduce the appearance of stretch marks, especially for people with darker skin. 

Dermabrasion: This is a technique that removes the top layer of the skin with a rotating device, exposing a new layer of skin. This may make stretch marks less noticeable. 

Before choosing any stretch marks treatment, you should consult with your doctor about the risks, benefits, and costs. You should also have realistic expectations, as stretch marks may never disappear completely.
