Think you are stuck with stretch marks?

Weight fluctuations, growth spurts, and pregnancy stretch the skin, often, beyond its limit. This can leave permanent marks on the stomach, hips, breasts, and buttocks. From faint, white lines to thick red depressions, stretch marks can cause men and women to feel self conscious or inhibit clothing choices. Striae are tears deep in the dermis. Creams and oils, no matter what they promise, won’t work to treat these tears in the skin.

Think again….

Fortunately, Contemporary Health Center has state of the art  treatments that dramatically reduce or virtually eliminate even the worst stretch marks. A consultation can determine which treatments or combination therapies are right for you and will give you the results you are seeking.

Vivace RF Microneedling

Advanced technology combines multiple modalities in one simple procedure. Using RF/radio frequency, robotic mechanical needles, and LED light, Vivace offers the latest option in non-surgical stretch mark treatment with no downtime. Safe for all skin types!
Vivace uses sterile micro-needles to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin to stimulate collagen production. New collagen can smooth the texture of stretch marks and reduce the appearance by improving the color.  Where Vivace stands out is in the application of radio frequency energy (RF) at deeper, highly precise depths which adds to the tightening and toning effect.  Lastly, the Vivace is virtually pain-free and features red LED light therapy to increase collagen and further strengthen skin. Get visible improvement with each treatment. Depending on their severity, 3-6 treatments may be desired to achieve maximum reduction in the appearance of stretch marks.

IPL/Intense Pulsed Light

IPL offers an effective option for reducing the appearance of hyper-pigmented (dark red) scars, including new stretch marks. This non-invasive approach uses targeted flashes of light to treat dilated and broken blood vessels without injuring the surrounding healthy skin.
If multiple sessions are recommended, they may be scheduled at 3-4 week intervals. Each session usually lasts about 20 minutes, with patients returning to normal activity immediately. By dividing the full program into several sessions, IPL treatments provide gradual, natural improvement with excellent long term results.

Tretinoin

Topical prescription formulation containing retinoids (vitamin A-derivatives) can be effective in treating early, red, inflammatory stretch marks.
