Will Derma Roller & an effective cream work good for old stretch marks If not is there a way to get my stomach back tight? photo

Hi, I have had stretch marks for 2 years now from pregnancy, they are all over my stomach from bellybutton down, they are white/silver they make my stomach wrinkly and kind of like a flappy tummy when I lay on my side, bend over, etc. I had a c-section to so that makes it look worse.

Treatment for stretch marks

In my office we have been getting excellent results in the treatment of stretch marks by using 1.5 mm needles combined with human growth factor serums derived from stem cells. We use motorized micro-needling, not the derma roller, for a more even and more effective result. Rollers such as the Dermaroller create a more erratic pattern of "tears" through the skin rather than the clean, more evenly distributed punctures seen with motorized micro-needling machines. Because micro-needling has been shown to enhance delivery of topically applied skin care products, we combine micro-needling treatments with human growth factor serums to get the best results. In my office we use the ProCell Therapies system which combines motorized micro-needling with concentrated human growth factor serums made from human stem cells. Our patients also use ProCell Therapies growth factor serum at home after the office treatment. For overall abdominal skin tightening, we have seen excellent improvement using Exilis therapy which applies radio frequency energy to the area, resulting in tightening of the skin.
