As we count down to the most glamorous time of the year, get ready to primp for a marathon of festive get-togethers. To look your best without the stress, try the Intensive Stretch Mark Removal Programme at EstheClinic for smooother skin.
EstheClinic uses three steps in its treatment that requires zero downtime. It begins with a consultation to establish the condition of your marks. Those with more deep-set ones are advised to try the Intensive option. This has a longer treatment time and exposure to the Thermo-Controlled Radiofrequency step, which is the first stage of the experience.
Carried out using a three-pronged applicator, the procedure involves high heat that may sting in the beginning as the therapist initially uses a higher level to warm up the skin. This later becomes tolerable, with only a feeling of mild warmth. Relax as the radio frequency waves penetrate deep into the skin’s sub-dermal and inner dermis layers to stimulate collagen production and tighten skin in the longer run.
A micro-needling device will then be rolled onto the skin’s surface. The tiny needles create microscopic wounds in the skin to kick-start the formation of new collagen, the skin’s natural scaffold, to improve the appearance of the stretch marks. A serum is applied next, which contains chlorophyll in the formulation to better absorb the subsequent LED photomodulation technology.
This last step uses a red LED light that improves skin elasticity by regenerating cells to activate collagen. As the most relaxing part of the session, simply put on the provided glasses and take a nap as the light hits your skin. Within the first few sessions, you will notice smoother and softer skin. As you continue your treatment, skin will become taut, and the stretch marks will gradually flatten and fade. Final results depend on your specific skin condition.
