The Eraser for Stretch Marks | Greenwich | Westport CT

Why we developed The Eraser at Greenwich Medical Spa:

  •  The Eraser combines two highly effective skin treatments.
  •  The pairing of micro-needling and platelet rich plasma encourages collagen production.
  •  The Eraser allows skin to rejuvenate from below the surface.

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.


FAQs

While no treatment can completely eliminate or remove stretch marks, The Eraser can significantly improve the appearance of red, white, and purple stretch marks. In some cases, the stretch marks may even become difficult to see. We find that the skin rejuvenating effects of The Eraser work well on many types of scarring including stretch marks.
Your treatment plan will be determined by the appearance of your stretch marks. We typically recommend 4 to 6 treatments to achieve full results.
You will begin to see results from The Eraser within a week following treatment with clear results appearing by four weeks. Because The Eraser causes your body to naturally produce collagen to heal itself over time, you may continue to see improvement for up to a year.
Yes, as long as you maintain your skin’s moisture and wear sunblock on exposed, treated areas, your results should last a lifetime. However, you will still have the ability to make new stretch marks.
Yes, The Eraser’s proprietary combination of micro-needling and PRP allows the skin to produce collagen and healing effects from below. New tissue will be created so that even old blemishes and scars like stretch marks are improved.
The Eraser treatments are safe and effective for all skin tones and types! In fact, with The Eraser, there is less likelihood of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
The depth of the needling during The Eraser treatment is adjusted based on the severity of your stretch marks. For treatments with shorter needles, only a slight sensation will be felt – similar to a tickle. When longer needles are required, a numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort.
There is little to no real downtime with The Eraser treatment. You may experience sunburn-like redness and/or mild swelling on treated areas for a few days. We will provide you with a special serum to apply for the first few days, but you can resume using regular skincare products by the third day following treatment. You should treat your skin gently for the next week or two by avoiding sunlight and using mild products.
