Scar & Stretch Mark Treatments
PLASMA IQ FOR SKIN TIGHTENING, STRETCH MARKS, SCARS
Plasma IQ - Plasma IQ delivers focused, controlled plasma energy to safely and effectively create microinjuries on the skin, renewing and restoring it. As the device is brought close to the skin, it ionizes nitrogen gas particles in the air to create a plasma arc that looks like a spark. The plasma arc causes sublimation of the epidermis of the skin; turning a solid into gas, resulting in immediate skin tightening and retraction in the target area. The procedure creates tiny brown carbon crusts or scabs in the treated area that persist for approximately one week before dropping off. This treatment promotes the long-term firming, tightening, and smoothing effects that are part of the natural healing response.
- Treatments based on size/area - $600 - $1,500
MICRONEEDLING FOR SKIN TIGHTENING, STRETCH MARKS, SCARS
Microneedling uses micro-needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma. Our body corrects this trauma by forming new collagen. Microneedling is used to improving scars, improve stretch marks, and improve overall skin texture.
From microneedling alone, your skin will look plump, pink and luminous for a couple of weeks. In recent studies, skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing the treatment.
Most stretch marks, post-surgical scars, post-traumatic scars, and acne scars have been present for extended periods of time. Due to this, scar treatment does involve multiple sessions at least 4-6 weeks apart.
- Microneedling - priced per area, generally $100-$250 per treatment
