Stretch Marks and Scarring

Whether from an injury, surgery, or a skin problem such as acne, scars are something almost everyone has to deal with. Although unsightly, they’ are an amazing example of the miraculous way skin heals itself when injured. Scars may be flat or raised. What you do to assist the skin as it heals and how you treat the scarred area afterwards can make a big difference in how the scar looks.

For best results the eDermastamp machine is used alongside the Kelo-cote scar gel or spray. An improvement will be seen after one treatment, however more may be required depending on the desired result.

 

Stretch marks are the result of the skin suddenly stretching. The middle layer of skin (dermis) breaks in places, allowing the deeper layers to show through.

The dermis can be stretched:

  • during pregnancy
  • as a result of weight gain
  • due to growth spurts during puberty
