Find the right stretch mark treatment near Portland
Most of us first get stretch marks during growth spurts as teenagers, and pregnant women are especially susceptible.
The good news is you can find a great stretch mark treatment near Portland at West Linn Aesthetics.
Where stretch marks come from
Stretch marks are indented streaks often appearing on abdomen, breasts, hips, and buttocks.
They result from a rupturing of skin fibers beneath the surface of your skin. Dramatic tension to the skin causes those fibers to rupture. Most commonly the type of dramatic tension needed comes from pregnancy, puberty, or excessive weight and/or muscle gain.
HALO™ combines the benefits of non-ablative and ablative light wavelengths, delivering dramatic results without the lengthy healing time associated with other resurfacing lasers. We personalize each treatment to deliver ideal results for your melasma.
There is no downtime after these skin tightening treatments, so patients may resume their regular activities immediately. We treat any area of the body where loose or sagging skin sits, giving patients a firmer, more youthful appearance.
These microneedles create small channels in the skin to enhance the production of collagen and new skin cells with minimal damage to your epidermis. Increased cell production gives your skin a chance to overcome rosacea with healthy, renewed skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Do stretch marks go away after weight loss?
No, stretch marks are scars left after the rupturing of skin fibers, so once they are there, the only way to fade them is through increasing collagen production in the skin beneath them. Weight loss can actually make stretch marks more noticeable. West Linn Aesthetics offers a variety of stretch mark treatments near Portland.
Are stretch marks hereditary?
Yes and no. If people in your family get stretch marks, you may be at a higher risk. That said, very few women avoid stretch marks for their entire lives regardless of family history.
Can I remove stretch marks naturally?
While the collagen production triggered by our med spa treatments is perfectly natural, "at-home" natural remedies for stretch marks simply do not work, based on studies. Researchers who looked into it found that stretch marks did not fade at all after regular application of almond oil, cocoa butter, olive oil, or vitamin E. Tanning also does not fade stretch marks, it makes them more noticeable because they do not tan.
