The most common method for the correction of stretch marks skin grinding. Grinding removes the superficial layers of the skin and gives the impression that the skin is level. As a result, stretch marks are a little less obvious but solving the problem completely using grinding is not possible, as in sites where stretch marks have occurred, the normal structure of the tissue is not restored.
In some cases, physicians use specialized creams, chemical peels, mesotherapy, or a combination. In such cases, treatment is longer and not always effective. In other cases physicians suggest resorting to surgery to removing skin damaged by stretch marks. Operation costs, complications and recovery period (10-14 days) limit the widespread use of this technique.
Salvecoll-C® is allowing health professionals to take a fresh look at the difficulties inherent in correcting stretch marks and significantly improve the results of treatment.
How does Salvecoll-C® work when treating stretch marks?
- Salvecoll-C® is applied in order to make up for the lost collagen in stretched skin.
- The injection of Salvecoll-C® gel mechanically fills the stretched area and the skin surface is leveled.
- At the site of Salvecoll-C® gel injection new collagen fibers begin to form and fill the defect.
- The new collagen fibers growing at the site are strictly directed on the Salvecoll-C® matrix resulting in full tissue forming at stretched areas. Subsequently, stretch marks become so similar to the surrounding healthy skin that they are unnoticeable.
Salvecoll-C® can be advantageously combined with other techniques, such as peeling and laser technology treatments.
Benefits of Salvecoll-C® treatment
- Salvecoll-C® has been successfully used to treat both newly emerging and long-standing stretched skin.
- Salvecoll-C® replenishes lost collagen and restores the normal structure of the skin.
- The procedure is painless, as the physician applies local anesthetic agents to the skin.
