Microneedling for Stretch Marks Does it Work

Microneedling for Stretch Marks: Does it Work?

Stretch marks are a lot more common than you think with around 90% of people around the globe having stretch marks somewhere on their body. 

Stretch marks often appear when the skin naturally stretches which is often in the case of weight gain/loss, genetics, or due to weak connective tissues. 

For those seeking the perfect beach body stretch marks can take away from that perfection and many would love those stretch marks gone! 

Luckily, permanent makeup offers the ultimate solution for stretch mark removal – a process known as microneedling.

Microneedling can help conceal acne, hyperpigmentation, and scarring, but it can also help get rid of those unattractive stretch marks!

How? Let’s find out!

What Are Stretch Marks?

Our skins can stretch because of collagen and elastin. Collagen is what gives your skin the necessary firmness and strength, while elastin holds your skin together with resilience. 

However, weight changes, genetics, and puberty can impact your skin’s collagen and elastin levels. 

These changes cause the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers to rupture, leaving behind stripe-like stretch marks over fatty areas like thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and breasts.

What Is Microneedling?

Micro-needling is a non-invasive, permanent makeup procedure in which a permanent makeup artist uses thin needles to cause intentional ruptures in the skin to help produce collagen, bringing the skin back to life.

I know the intentional injury part sounds scary and painful. But worry not. It is, in fact, a painless procedure with a bit of discomfort that is well worth it when you see the results. 

This popular permanent makeup technique helps improve skin texture and reduces the visibility of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks. And here’s the cherry on top – it doesn’t rinse off and can last for years!

How Effective Is Microneedling For Concealing Stretch Marks?

Between the riskiness of surgeries and the wallet-draining world of lasers, the world of permanent makeup has been a game-changer for those struggling to conceal stretch marks without having to spend a fortune.

Many of you reading this have probably tried lotions to help get rid of the redness of fresh stretch marks – but let’s face it – it’s not a lasting solution. 

This is why micro-needling has come to be one of the sought-after treatments for concealing unwanted stretch marks. The microneedling process involves precise puncturing of the skin in a manner that triggers the skin’s natural healing process. This in turn improves skin texture and encourages new skin growth which helps naturally conceal stretch marks. 

The reduction of these marks happens in 3 stages:

  • Inflammation: Once your makeup artist punctures the needles into the skin’s dermal layer, your body’s immune system gets to work. Your body will naturally disinfect the punctured area, increase blood flow, and build healthy tissue. 
  • Rebirth: New skin forms over your stretch marks.
  • Remodel: The last step is when the duo of collagen and elastin work their magic of tightening and contracting the skin with resilience, giving your skin that smooth and radiant look.

To sum up, stretch marks mess with your elastin and collagen fibers, and micro-needling can provide a more permanent solution to help conceal those stretch marks while also healing the damaged tissue that causes stretch marks in the first place!

How Many Microneedling Sessions Are Required For Removing Stretch Marks?

A microneedling session for stretch marks lasts for about 30 minutes, and it requires at least 3-6 sittings spaced at least six months apart. 

The reason why it takes around 4-6 months to show its effectiveness is that collagen takes time to produce and to work its wonders. Remember, patience is the key here!

The thorough nature of this treatment is the reason why it’s the oldest cosmetic treatment that is still widely used and loved today. It’s like the wine of cosmetic treatments — timeless and gets better with age!

So, how long does the incredible wizardry of microneedling last? Well, the longevity of the treatment varies from person to person, depending upon the size and severity of their stretch marks but in many cases, it can last for years or even a lifetime.

Is Microneedling For Stretch Marks Effective? Let’s see:

Although the effects do not appear overnight, they surely appear gradually, as all great things in life do.

And guess what? Science is all about microneedling when it comes to stretch marks. Studies have proved that micro-needling treatment against stretch marks is not only effective but also very safe. 

The results are permanent unless the same quick changes happen in weight again due to diet, puberty, hormonal fluctuation, or just genetics.

However, for impeccable results, you must seek an experienced and trained professional who loves their job as much as you love spotless skin!
