Scar and Stretch Mark Treatments at Lecada Medical Artistry

Most women and many men are regularly frustrated by their battle with scars, stretch marks and cellulite. It seems no matter the amount of weight loss or how their diet changes, these marks stubbornly remain causing suffers to feel self-conscious and discouraged. However, recent treatment developments have found some success treating cellulite, scar and stretch mark issues.

What Causes Cellulite?

There are a variety of possible causes for cellulite. Some suffers may have a predisposition to this condition thanks to certain hormonal levels and genetic links. Studies have also found that those with high fat, high salt, high carbohydrate, low fiber diets are more prone to cellulite. Also, those who do not exercise frequently, wear tight clothing, or do not maintain regular circulation are more likely to have cellulite.

What Causes Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks can occur during rapid weight gain or loss, pregnancy, growth spurts, medication use or by certain medical conditions like Cushing's Syndrome. While the marks tend to fade over time, for some the marks never disappear completely.

How Can Cellulite and Stretch Marks Be Treated?

Exilis Skin Tightening and Body Shaping. Using a revolutionary patented technology that delivers ultrasonic waves and controlled heating to the tissue, Exilis precisely targets deeper fat layers while contact cooling of the surface regulates the temperature of the skin and protects fine dermal structures. Not only will your fat cell volume decrease, but your skin will tighten and become younger-looking.

Fraxel Laser Tampa.Stretch marks can be treated using a pinpoint laser treatment which penetrates beneath the surface to smooth unsightly scar tissue. As the body heals, collagen regeneration will give the skin a more typical appearance.

ViPeel- Chemical Peel. Using a blend of Retin-A and concentrated vitamins and minerals, this specialized chemical peel will even out stretch mark scar tissue and give it a firmer, tighter, rejuvenated look.

• Permanent Makeup. By camouflaging scars and restoring the skin’s natural coloring, permanent make-up can ultimately erase many unsightly stretch marks.

• Collagen Induction Therapy. Also known as Dermal Needling, this procedure stimulates the skin to produce new collagen, thereby improving the skin’s overall texture. Using local or topical anesthesia, a roller with very fine needles or a special needle is used to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin. New collagen is produced and smoother skin will result.

• Punch grafts, topical lightening creams and steroid injections can also treat stretch mark scars. Please schedule a consultation to determine your personalized course of treatment.
