Despite the fact that it is normally found, stretch mark or cellulite is very unflattering and unwanted by many. As the research across race and age, has shown that 43% of women develop stretch marks before the 24th weeks of gestation. Although the pregnancy only lasts for 9 months, the stretch mark prevailed to stay.
Stretch marks form when the skin stretches to fit in more fat deposits, and leaving the gap between connective tissues beneath the skin. Cellulite mostly forms in parts of the body that would expand in short matter of time, such as the buttocks, thighs and belly area.
To reduce the incidence cellulite, one can go for a strict diet, and regime of exercises that would return the skin to its natural form. However, this would require a long period of time to recover, especially for the cellulite to reduce and disappear completely. One of the available treatments in the aesthetic market is by using Fractional laser treatment.
30 Minutes treatment for cellulite-free body!
Fractional laser treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical therapy to help with cellulite removal. The unpainful process helps to break down the damaged cells into smaller particles to be absorbed by the body. The immediate result can be seen instantly after the treatment and after 1 – 2 days as the redness reduces.
This process starts with numbing cream being applied to your targeted area to reduce any of unprecedented painful sensation and to give you a comfortable experience. Then, the doctor will slowly direct the laser nozzle to your stretch mark. The process is often described as a series of short hotspots. You may expect some redness after the treatment especially during the first 24 hours. Do not worry as this is temporary and will leave the skin in about 2 – 3 days.
To reduce the redness, you can apply a cool pack to the treated area. A warm shower can also help in improving your blood circulation. You may also apply skin care treatments and moisturisers to help with the healing process. Should your cellulite be on an open area, you’re recommended to apply sunscreen throughout the day until it reduces significantly.
The doctor will tell you to avoid skin picking of any sort, as it may cause scarring. Kindly avoid using Retin-A, Benzyl Peroxide or glycolic acid for a few weeks. Our expert doctors will give you a detailed instruction on what skincare products to be used or avoided. You are advised to not put heavy pressure on the treated area as it might cause trauma to the skin. This involves massages, vigorous activities or further scratches.
There are no downtime associated with this treatment. You may proceed with your normal daily routine as usual after the treatment. Besides, there are no dietary commitment as well. You may go to your all-you-can-eat-buffet as you’d like.
