Treatment of Stretch Marks



Stretch marks appear as a result of the rupture of the collagen and elastin fibres, which are responsible for maintaining the elasticity of our skin. When the skin is subjected to extreme tension, these fibres are put under a lot of pressure and often can’t resist, which is when the rupture occurs. Hereditary factors can cause stretch marks, as well as other factors such as pregnancy, hormones, diabetes, excessive weight gain or extreme weight loss, and fast body growth. 

The stretch mark removal procedure performed at Skinnovation Laser Centre uses a  technique from Brazil called Micropoints technique. It is performed with a cosmetic tattooing machine and is based on mechanical stimulation. This innovative technique uses biotechnological cosmetics in order to regenerate the skin and activate the production of collagen, elastin, and melanin. This is a revolutionary method which treats older, white stretch marks in particular.


When you schedule your stretch mark removal treatment at Skinnovation Laser Clinic, our team will advise you on the best plan of action and help you figure out everything you need to know about this treatment. To regenerate the skin and encourage it to produce new collagen and elastin, we will use specific types of biotechnical cosmetics. These can reduce the appearance of your stretch marks and smooth out your skin on the treated area, which are the most important benefits of this procedure.

The required number of sessions will vary from one patient to another. These largely depend on the thickness of your stretch marks, post-treatment care, and your body’s ability to recover. Generally speaking, up to 6 sessions are required to achieve optimal results. Sessions should be done at a minimum of 4 weeks apart, so that the treated area gets a chance to recover properly after every session. If you have any questions regarding this phenomenal procedure, feel free to contact our team at Skinnovation Laser Clinic and learn more about the best treatment for stretch marks! 


 As this is a non-surgical procedure, it means that it is more affordable than its surgical counterpart – undergoing plastic surgery and physically removing the stretch marks. The costs involved in Micropoints technique of stretch mark removal are very reasonable.

This technique works best on old, white stretch marks,but also performs well on recent, red stretch marks. The reason why these are red is that the skin swells and fills up with blood in an attempt to recover. After a particular period of time, the cells settle and the stretch marks will become much lighter, which is a clear sign that they have been there for a longer time. Micropoints technique also targets wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and acne scarring, so contact our team at Skinnovation Laser Clinic and find out more about these treatments! 


The right candidates for stretch mark removal in Sydney are all women and men who have developed stretch marks over time.  Nearly everybody is a perfect candidate for this procedure, however, the most frequent patients are women who have recently given birth, as stretch marks are typically a natural part of pregnancy. 

Other candidates are those who have lost a lot of weight, as well as bodybuilders who have rapidly developed considerable muscle mass. There are some conditions that exclude people from this procedure. These are conditions and diseases such as HIV, carcinogenic tumours, leukaemia, pacemakers, and contagious warts. Pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding aren’t candidates for this type of procedure.


The longevity of stretch mark removal sessions depends on the treated area, the amount of stretch marks, and the severity of the case. They typically range anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour. The downtime associated with this procedure is between 1 and 2 weeks, and it depends on each patient’s individual healing capabilities. The most common side-effects are redness and swelling, and the treated skin will scab and flake off in the next couple weeks after the treatment. 

Even though we call it ‘stretch mark removal’, we must say that there currently is no method on the market that can completely remove stretch marks. Once the skin ruptures, it is physically impossible for it to go back to its original state. This is why our stretch mark removal procedure is designed to permanently diminish the appearance of stretch marks, reduce their visibility, and smooth out the skin in the treated area. Even though the ruptured skin will still be there, the actual stretch mark will be practically invisible to the naked eye!
