How Morpheus8 Treatments Get Rid of Stretch Marks
Every year, men and women spend huge sums of money purchasing products that are designed to remove stretch marks. In fact, stretch mark creams comprise a million-dollar industry, despite the fact that these products never work at satisfactory levels. Thankfully, there is a non-surgical treatment option offered by the best cosmetic surgical centers that can eliminate stretch marks in a few treatments—its name is Morpheus8.
What Is Morpheus8?
Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling that work together to provide patients with skin that’s in line with supporting their beauty goals. According to patients who have visited multiple plastic surgical centers seeking to eliminate stretch marks, Grossman Medical offers the best Morpheus8 treatments in Beverly Hills and all of Los Angeles County, as Dr. Peter Grossman is a leading expert offering this treatment to resolve a wide range of needs. Morpheus8 doesn’t just eliminate stretch marks, it also helps to improve these other common concerns that people have with their body:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Fine lines
- Bra fat
- Excess fatty tissue
- Skin tone issues
Morpheus8 helps to make the skin look tighter and healthier, while enabling people to look much younger. When you have your Morpheus8 consultation with Dr. Peter Grossman, be sure to ask how Morpheus8 can address other body concerns you have, in addition to treating your stretch marks.
Know Thy Enemy: Understanding Stretch Marks and How Morpheus8 Works to Restore Healthy-Looking Skin and Self-Esteem
Stretch marks are a common condition of benign cutaneous lesions that are physically harmless. However, they are viewed as a stigma that impacts one’s self-esteem, and this can have devastating consequences on one’s psychological health. According to a study published by the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery titled “Management of Stretch Marks (With a Focus on Striae Rubrae)” by Dr. Uwe Wollina and Alberto Goldman, stretch marks are noted for causing a great degree of low self-esteem:
Depending on their extent, location, and the personal perception of the patients, stretch marks may cause great esthetic dissatisfaction and have a profound negative impact on their self-esteem.
Dr. Peter Grossman offers his patients the opportunity to eliminate their stretch marks, while focusing on the “whole person” and therefore will offer additional Morpheus8 treatments that could be used to treat other areas of the body that are burdensome to one’s self-esteem and image perception.
How Does Morpheus8 Actually Work Towards Removing Stretch Marks?
Morpheus8 treatments work by stimulating the natural production of collagen to even out skin tone and to improve various skin concerns like stretch marks. When receiving this treatment, very small needles target specific areas of the body, penetrating deep layers of the skin while causing micro-injuries. When these tiny “injuries” are made, the body’s natural response is to create more collagen, and while this is taking place, radiofrequency waves provide heat, resulting in tightening the underlying skin and fat. As a result, stretch marks can fade or be eliminated.
What Causes Stretch Marks?
While not everyone develops stretch marks, a lot of people get them, for a wide range of reasons. Some common causes of stretch marks include the following:
- Growth spurts that take place during puberty
- Fluctuating hormone levels
- Genetics (if your family members have them, you run a higher risk of getting them)
- Rapid weight loss (gastric surgery patients can develop them)
- Rapid weight gain
- Rapid muscle growth during weight training
Not everyone develops these narrow bands on their skin. Fluctuating hormone levels seem to play a role. You may also have a higher risk if people in your family get stretch marks.
If you develop stretch marks, you’re most likely to do so during these times:
- Growth spurts that happen in puberty
- Rapid weight loss or gain
- Weight training when you have rapid muscle growth
- Certain medical conditions like Marfan syndrome and Cushing’s disease can cause stretch marks
- Using a corticosteroid on the skin for long periods of time
Regardless of the cause, Grossman Medical can formulate a strategy that will work towards removing your stretch marks with a series of Morpheus8 treatments.
How Many Morpheus8 Treatments Will I Need to Remove My Stretch Marks?
No two people are exactly alike, so in order to learn how many Morpheus8 treatments are needed to fade or remove your stretch marks, you will need to have a consultation with Dr. Grossman. There are several considerations that play into the number of Morpheus8 treatments one will require to achieve their goal. Some of these include:
- Elasticity of your skin
- Location of stretch marks
- Size and depth of stretch marks
- Your age
- General medical health
Dr. Grossman will take all of these considerations into account, and upon examining your stretch marks he will be able to give you an accurate estimate of the number of Morpheus8 treatments that you will require.
