How to Reduce Stretch Marks and Cellulite After Pregnancy

By | Stretch Marks

Pregnancy means many things: you get a baby out of the months of bodily changes, cravings and other issues. Sadly, you also get those stretch marks and cellulite that come with almost every pregnancy. This leaves many women deeply distressed and wondering just how to remove stretch marks and cellulite after pregnancy. At Juvia Medspa we see many patients worried that they won’t be able to reclaim their former appearance or figure.

The good news is that simple dieting and exercise are two great ways to start to conquer issues like cellulite. Unfortunately, even weight loss cannot eliminate those stretch marks. Let’s understand why they occurred and then consider some valid ways of dealing with them. (Hint: We’ll also look at a few good remedies for cellulite, too).

What Are Stretch Marks

You may have moisturized and tried hard to prevent stretch marks as your baby grew and your body changed, but for most women it can feel like a losing battle. With rapid weight gain, hormones and water weight, these marks can be impossible to avoid. Many of our patients see a lot of fading in the months after they have given birth, but many also want to see a more permanent reduction.

While many read that treatments like cocoa butter, vitamin E serums or glycolic acid lotions can reduce the marks, they don’t actually erase them. These products are great for your skin, but they can’t erase stretch marks.

Fortunately, we have several treatments that minimize their appearance to such a degree that you may hardly notice them. These include laser treatments, microdermabrasion options, and other treatments that remove the outermost layers of dead or damaged skin and scar tissue. It usually takes several treatments to accomplish the greatest effects, but the good news is that they work and are readily available to you once initial swelling and redness has faded in the months after childbirth.

Now, About that Cellulite…

Cellulite is the bane of most women’s existence, and a few men, too. It is caused by fat that is pushing against the connective tissues just beneath the skin. This is why it looks dimpled, and why it can be tough to shed. After all, it is stored fat and that is the toughest thing to lose. As we already mentioned, diet and exercise reduce its appearance, but even ultra-thin people can have it.

The good news is that treatments like mesotherapy, radio frequency and infra red light treatments, and liposuction are all available. Depending on your specific needs, we can help you to choose between a variety of effective non-invasive or surgical options that can eliminate the issue fairly quickly. It can even be used on unusual areas like the arms in addition to the legs and buttocks.

You are not stuck with those stretch marks or that cellulite. If you are eager to restore your body to its pre-baby appearance, you have an array of options available at Juvia MedSpa. The first step is to meet with our team and review the treatment options they suggest. So, don’t hesitate any longer, and call today to schedule a free consultation.

Don’t Let Aging Skin Make You Look Older Than You Are

By | Age Spots

Do you work hard to stay fit and in shape? Do you wish that you could go back in time and correct the bad skin habits of your youth? Stop me if youve heard this one before, but when you were in your teens and twenties, you felt invincible. A sunburn meant nothing to you. A few extra pounds were easily lost with (what felt like) just a few minutes in the gym.

Now, though, you pay attention to your diet, and you work out regularly to stay in shape because you know that its not as easy as it used to be. Worse, you know that sunburns do lasting damage to your skin, and youre paying for your youthful UV indiscretions. Well, I’m here to tell you that you dont have to live with the marks of a tanned and burned youth. With help from our board-certified medical director and some amazing treatments, you can get rid of all kinds of blemishes and problem areas.

If youve had a baby, or youve gained or lost a few pounds, you probably have some stretch marks to show for it. While these are just signs that your body is doing what its designed to do, you dont necessarily want to show them off at the beach next summer. Fortunately, you can now get stretch mark removal procedures done right at the medical spa.

The same goes for brown spot treatment. With just a few sessions of laser treatments or microneedling, you can watch those imperfections fade away entirely, leaving behind youthful, even, smooth skin.

Now, I know what youre thinking. Youve seen over-the-counter creams that promise to do everything I just mentioned in the comfort of your own home. Well, first of all, those creams dont work. Second, because they dont work at first, youll feel like ”“ if you just keep buying more ”“ theyll eventually clear your skin. Dont waste your money.

Laser and microneedle treatments cost less than these creams because you dont have to constantly keep buying them. These procedures are proven to accomplish the goal of getting rid of age spots and/or stretch marks, leaving you looking and feeling younger than you have in years.

Are you ready for treatments that will strip years from your face, arms, neck, and chest? Give us a call at Juvia Med Spa today at 817-427-3700!
