A stretch mark is a scar that occurs from “rapid” stretching or shrinking of the skin. The collagen and elastin in the skin rupture with the force of the change, and the stretch mark is the scar that forms as your skin heals. These often occur during puberty and pregnancy, but can happen from general weight gain or loss.

What happens after stretch mark treatment?
After RF microneedling for stretch marks, expect your skin to be slightly red and swollen, similar to a mild sunburn, for a couple of days. At first your skin will be rougher textured as the damaged skin sloughs off to reveal the healthier skin beneath. Most patients have no problem returning to their normal activities (while avoiding the sun) after treatment.

Stretch mark treatment FAQs
RF microneedling helps with stretch marks by triggering a controlled healing process—basically the opposite of the healing process the stretch mark went under in the first place. This careful remodeling encourages healthy, fresh skin.
While Lutronic Genius is not comfortable, it is non-invasive, and you’ll be able to get right back to your normal activities.
When you see results after your treatment will depend on the size, location, and severity of your stretch marks. You should start seeing some improvement within a few weeks, with full results after 8 weeks.
Tanning doesn’t help the appearance of anything—don’t go tanning! But it especially doesn’t help with stretch marks, because stretch marks won’t tan. Applying a self-tanner, on the other hand, can help camouflage the scarring a little bit.
