STRETCH MARK REDUCTION | NYC
Goldenberg Dermatology provides special expertise and the most advanced technologies in the reduction and removal of stretch marks. Unlike most doctors’ offices and medical spas that only offer a single stretch mark reduction modality, Drs. Gary and Kristina Goldenberg combine several state-of-the-art procedures into a personalized scar reduction treatment plan that is customized for each patient’s unique needs.
Stretch marks are actually a type of scar that develops when the skin stretches or shrinks quickly. Abrupt changes in the skin can cause the body’s collagen and elastin structure to rupture. As the skin heals itself, stretch marks may appear. The severity of stretch marks is affected by several factors, including the patient’s genetics, as well as the degree of stress on the skin. It is also believed that a person’s cortisol hormone levels may play a role in the development of stretch marks.
Rapid weight gain and weight loss is the primary cause of stretch marks – especially the sudden weight gain of pregnancy. Stretch marks can be pink, red, brown, black, purplish, white, or even silvery. Stretch marks are most common on the belly, flanks, breasts, chest, upper arms, legs, buttocks, hips and back. While stretch marks may fade somewhat over time, they very rarely go away on their own.
Drs. Gary and Kristina Goldenberg offer patients two types of laser skin resurfacing, microneedling with PRP and exosomes, and dermal fillers such as Sculptra and Radiesse, to reduce or eliminate the appearance of stretch marks anywhere on the body – so you can once again love the skin you’re in.
