Most of us begin life with perfect skin. Every one of us will have heard the expression, as soft as a baby’s skin, used by relatives and friends and may even have used it ourselves many times. Softness is related to smoothness and whenever we are fortunate enough to touch a healthy baby, helping them bathe or learn to swim, perhaps, our hands feel rough in comparison to their body.
Even when we are in our teens or young adulthood our skin can still retain its perfect qualities. Young women, in particular, can be blessed with a beautiful smoothness, particularly on their soft bellies and buttocks. Which makes it all the more difficult to accept when the cycle starts again and new mothers discover that their perfection has been lost and stretch marks have appeared in its place.
Unfortunately it’s not just having babies that can cause stretch marks to appear in soft expanses of flesh. Nor is it only women who can suffer from them either. Sometimes it can be caused by rapid loss of weight when strict dietary routines are undertaken. Other people can experience them from a change of diet, a move to a new country or even a change of lifestyle that involves more physical activity.
Whatever the reason, hope is at hand for those who want to do something about it rather than simply shrugging the shoulders and accepting the hand of time upon their physique. A new technique, known as Recell Treatment, has become available. This takes the patient’s own stem cells and implants them in the areas where new skin is to be developed. Then new skin grows over and around the stretch marks so that they become practically invisible to the naked eye. This can work on many different areas of the body including thighs, buttocks, bellies and arms.
It may sound easy but the technique needs specialist training and a pair of steady hands. Clinics are now opening up around the country to be able to offer stretch mark removal sessions to those who most feel that it would benefit them. Trained medical practitioners need to be involved in carrying out these procedures as removal of stem cells as well as insertion of the cells into sensitive areas of the body require care and attention to a high standard of medical practice for successful results to be obtained.
If you would like to find out more about these possibilities please visit our stretch mark removal page for full details and to book a preliminary interview to ascertain your suitability for this type of skin work in the London area. No longer is it necessary to grin and bear it when it comes to stretch marks and possibilities for their removal.
