Plasma pen treatments are a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a small handheld device to deliver plasma energy to the skin. This energy creates a controlled injury to the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response and promotes the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This can be effective in reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
When the plasma energy is delivered to the skin, it creates a controlled injury that triggers the body’s natural healing response. This response includes the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which can help to improve the texture and tone of the skin. As the skin heals, it can become smoother and more even in appearance, which can reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
The plasma energy also has a tightening effect on the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Stretch marks are caused by the stretching and tearing of the skin’s connective tissue, which can result in the appearance of visible lines or streaks. By promoting the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, plasma pen treatments can help to strengthen and tighten the skin’s connective tissue, reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
Prescription topical medications can approve the appearance of scars and stretch marks by fading hyperpigmentation and improving texture. Book a consult to see if you qualify for prescription topical medications for your scars.
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is important to use on scars and stretch marks because these areas of the skin are more vulnerable to sun damage. Scars and stretch marks typically have less melanin, which is the pigment that protects the skin from UV rays, compared to surrounding skin. This makes them more susceptible to sunburn, hyperpigmentation, and other forms of sun damage.
Additionally, sun exposure can cause scars and stretch marks to darken and become more noticeable. UV rays can also slow down the healing process of scars and stretch marks, making it more difficult for them to fade over time. It is important to apply sunscreen to scars and stretch marks regularly, especially when spending time outdoors or in direct sunlight.
Additionally, other forms of sun protection, such as wearing protective clothing and seeking shade, can also help to protect scars and stretch marks from sun damage.
