Stretch marks are a normal part of puberty. They’re also common in women who have been pregnant, as well as men and women who are overweight or who have gained weight quickly. While you can’t always stop the formation of these long, narrow streaks on the skin, you can reduce their appearance.

Today there are non-invasive treatments found effective in the reduction of stretch marks on the skin. Learn more about these stretch marks removal options and how they work to smooth out overstretched skin.

Stretch Mark Treatments

X-Wave Treatment

BTL X-Wave is a form of acoustic wave therapy that has been clinically proven to contour and shape the body while reducing the appearance of skin flaws like stretch marks. This fast, safe and non-invasive procedure directly targets the skin and soft tissues to improve the appearance of stretch marks in just a few weeks. This stretch mark treatment is also effective at targeting cellulite, loose skin, and fatty deposits.

X-Wave delivers acoustic waves into the body, causing vibrations in the soft tissues. The FDA-approved device sends strong, non-focused pulses of sound directly at the problem area to produce positive physiological responses within the skin. This leads to an improved blood supply that brings oxygen and nutrients to repair tissues. The result is improved texture, smoothness, elasticity, and an overall tightening of the skin.

Depending on the severity of the stretch marks, you may need several treatments to get the results you’re looking for. Most doctors recommend between 4 and 8 treatments at 2 to 3 sessions per week spaced evenly apart.

For even faster and more efficient results, X-Wave can be combined with other non-invasive treatments such as Vanquish, a non-contact RF fat removal procedure, and CoolSculpting, a fat-freezing procedure that improves the look and strength of the skin.

Exilis Treatment

Exilis is a FDA-approved device that offers skin tightening benefits and an overall improvement in the skin’s appearance. This stretch mark treatment in Singapore works by sending safe thermal waves into the skin to heat certain cells. In addition to minimizing fat cells, this stretch mark treatment also stimulates and strengthens collagen fibers for improved skin texture and laxity.

Focused radiofrequency technology penetrates deep into the skin to produce satisfactory aesthetic effects including firmer, notably younger-looking skin. Each Exilis treatment ranges from 20 to 30 minutes on average and comes with little to no patient discomfort. Exilis also offers long-lasting results that are typically achieved in as little as four sessions spaced over a one to two month period.

Want to know how to remove an unsightly stretch mark on your skin? Stretch marks can greatly range in terms of length, thickness, and area on the body. These indentations can also appear on many areas of the body, including the breasts, abdomen, thighs, hips, and buttocks.

While stretch marks will usually fade over time, turning a white, silver hue, they do not typically disappear on their own. If you believe that you’re a good candidate for BTL X-Wave or Exilis, schedule a consultation with our U.S. Board-Certified skin specialist in Singapore at the Cutis Laser Clinics.
