Reduce the Appearance of Stretch Marks Today
At Honu Women’s Health, we support our patients through every phase of life. We enjoy assisting our obstetrical patients throughout their pregnancy journey and we equally enjoy supporting new mothers as they navigate postpartum life.
Many new mothers, or women who’ve experienced rapid weight changes, embrace their stretch marks. For those who don’t, we can help you reduce the appearance of stretch marks non-invasively and effectively.
Stretch marks are indented streaks that often appear on the abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks and thighs. They are extremely common and although they are not harmful or painful, some people feel they are unsightly. If you are distressed about the appearance of stretch marks, rest assured you do not have to live with them forever. There are several treatment options we can pursue to reduce the appearance of stretch marks at Honu Women’s Health.
Mini Mommy Makeover
Honu Women’s Health offers several treatment options to reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, breasts or hips. Our options are perfect for new mothers who need a little extra help getting back to their pre-pregnancy bodies but do not want to resort to invasive plastic surgery.
Fractional Laser Therapy
This nonsurgical treatment option uses fractional laser light to break down stretch marks and trigger healthy, new tissue growth. Pulses of energy are directed to break down the stretch marks without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Results will develop over the course of a few weeks and most patients will see continued improvement in both the coloration and smoothness of stretch marks.
Find Your Inner Health and Outer Beauty™
This innovative fractional radio frequency (RF) microneedling system works to reduce the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating and remodeling collagen.
It offers similar results to ablative laser procedures but with significantly less discomfort and risks. Treatments are entirely customizable by adjusting the microneedles to deliver energy at various depths depending on the severity of your stretch marks.
Secret™ RF’s precisely controlled RF energy is applied directly into various depths of the skin with minimally invasive ultra-fine needles that bypass the epidermis (topmost layer of skin) and reduce patient downtime. Since it has a sizeable handpiece that covers the largest treatment area on the market, it’s perfect for reducing the appearance of stretch marks. By targeting the skin’s underlying layers which are damaged by stretch marks, Secret™ RF causes the skin to rebuild itself.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a worthwhile add-on to microneedling treatments for stretch marks. It uses the rich nutrients of your blood to rejuvenate and regenerate damaged skin and grow new collagen in a more organized fashion.
Additionally, women looking for vaginal enhancement after childbirth may also benefit from PRP. This procedure promotes collagen and elastin production inside the vagina and around the clitoris, which can lead to improved vaginal hydration and other benefits.
Body Contouring with SculpSure®
While SculpSure® treatment is geared more toward destroying fat cells than erasing stretch marks, it’s a great complement to a “mini mommy makeover.” This treatment can help reduce the appearance of stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen and love handles.
There is no suction or pulling of tissue, so it’s safe for new mothers—and there’s little to no downtime. It is a comfortable and well-tolerated treatment that takes approximately 25 minutes per session.
Women’s health encompasses more than just being free from illness, and at Honu Women’s Health, we believe it is more than obstetrics and gynecology. That’s why we offer the total package—a customized path toward optimizing your inner health and outer beauty—that includes ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. We realize how stretch marks can significantly impact a woman’s self-confidence and we believe there is an innate connection between body and mind that can impact total body health. This is among the most important reasons why we are proud to help our patients significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
