How can microdermabrasion help stretch marks

How to get rid of stretch marks

We have all heard of them and the vast majority of us have experienced the purple-reddish lesions (that then turn transparent and silvery in colour) that can appear almost anywhere on the body, known as stretch marks or striae. Whilst scouring the web, there are quite literally reams of blogs and forums with distressing accounts of how stretch marks cause embarrassment, feeling uncomfortable and in some cases the onset of depression.

Would you believe, some 90% of women develop stretch marks whilst pregnant?  Let’s face it, the body has to make room for the baby somewhere. Other reasons include, weight gain or rapid weight loss, teenagers going through puberty and also rather surprisingly, bodybuilders who are quickly changing the shape of their body.

Enough with the doom and gloom, here at SkinBase we have come up with our top 3 ways to help get rid of stretch marks.

Combat stretch marks with microdermabrasion

The SkinBase Facial ™ is a proven treatment to help fight against and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. When hormones become overactive, the skin stops producing collagen and elastin, which are  both fibres responsible for keeping the skin taut, resulting in the the middle layer of the skin, stretching, tearing and ultimately scarring the skin with a stretch mark. The non-invasive, pain free SkinBase Facial ™ concentrates on the problem area by launching tiny crystals at the skin to stimulate the healthy production of collagen and elastin. Read more information on how it can help you.

Invest in aloe vera

The healing and soothing properties of aloe vera ensure it is effective for many different skin problems, not just stretch marks. Rub the affected area of skin with aloe vera for 15 minutes, washing off afterwards with warm water. If you repeat this on a daily basis, you are sure to notice the difference.

Show me the lemons

A cheap and easy way to fight against stretch marks. Being naturally acidic, lemons heal and reduce the appearance of stretch marks, as well as acne and other scars. Rub the lemons onto the affected area in circular motions for at least 10 minutes and then wash off with warm water. Afterwards, moisturise the skin to keep the skin hydrated and to encourage the stretch marks to fade further.

With our top 3 way to get rid of stretch marks and a little effort, you can ease their appearance and boost how you feel about yourself in no time.

Good luck,

Microdermabrasion treatment – What is it?

Microdermabrasion, meaning literally ‘small skin wearing away’ is an intense exfoliating treatment that uses tiny crystals to buff away the very outer layer of skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin beneath. SkinBase microdermabrasion treatment also benefits from a vacuum action which stimulates the micro-circulation and increases blood flow to the treatment area.

How to manage acne in the warmer, summer months…

We all suffer from acne breakouts from time to time, regardless of age or sex. One thing we are often asked about is why acne symptoms are worst in summer. While there can be many contributing factors, one key reason is that people with oily skin tend to suffer more heavily with acne, and oil production is at its highest in summer, hence – a higher likelihood of acne. In this blog, we explore how you can prevent outbreaks during the warmer, summer months.
