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.
