From bikinis to short shorts, some clothing may have been kicked out of your wardrobe thanks to your stretch marks. Rather than spending another season covering your belly, bottom, or other area marked by unsightly red or white stripes, consider The Eraser treatment, which can reduce the appearance of stretch marks by allowing the skin to utilize its own natural healing and collagen-producing abilities. Through the use of micro-needling, The Eraser promotes active collagen growth and builds connective tissue below the surface of the skin. Filled with growth factors, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) increases the body’s healing process so that you grow new tissue and reduce stretch marks on the surface of the skin.
A special type of scarring that typically shows up during teenage growth, pregnancy or weight gain, stretch marks settle in to form red, white, or purple lines. They are the result of a lack of flexibility and collagen leading to a failure in the middle layer of skin, which appears as the scar lines on the skin above. Many methods of improving stretch marks – they are unlikely to disappear completely – are ineffective unless stretch marks are recent. And even some of the more effective treatments can lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), especially on darker skin.
We have found the special combination of micro-needling and platelet-rich plasma to be effective at decreasing the appearance and texture of stretch marks. We call this treatment The Eraser, and it can be used on all skin types. The risk of PIH from The Eraser is low. Unlike laser treatments, The Eraser can be performed during the summer because it does not lead to sun sensitivity or downtime following treatment.
The Eraser is our proprietary process that pairs the collagen induction therapy of micro-needling with the reintroduction of growth factors isolated from your own blood and leads to the production of new tissue. This fresh skin tissue is filled with collagen, new fatty tissue, and new blood vessels, which means the surface of your skin, including stretch marks, becomes smoother and takes on a more even tone. To achieve maximum results and minimum stretch mark visibility with The Eraser, we recommend 4 to 6 treatments.
