Over-the-counter Lotions

There are several creams and lotions available at most Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Abu Dhabi and elsewhere that promise to give excellent results when it comes to removing stretch marks. These creams are usually loaded with ingredients like vitamin A, E and K, glycolic acid, collagen, elastin and pantothenic acid; all of which help stimulate healing process in the skin and restore the skin’s vital structures.

Cosmetic Treatments

If your stretch marks are only mild, then treatments like Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels can help diminish them to some extent. These procedures remove the top few layers of the skin and carry away with them any damaged skin cells. Thus stretch marks that are shallow, can be effectively removed with these treatments. In most cases, however, multiple treatments are needed before the marks vanish completely. Results: Effective in removing stretch marks

Laser Treatments

Like for so many other skin problems, laser treatment is also very effective in removing stretch marks from anywhere on the body. It repairs skin damage by removing thin layers of skin around the stretch marks using a laser device that beams long bursts of light at a single wavelength. Based on the extent of damage to the skin, different wavelengths, frequencies and durations of the pulse are used. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin that help in making the skin smoother and healthier.  By the end of the treatment, the visibility of stretch marks is greatly reduced. Results: Very Effective in removing stretch marks

Surgical Treatment

Currently, there is no specific surgical treatment for the removal of stretch marks, however, if they fall in the abdominal region then a tummy tuck can really help in getting rid of them completely. A tummy tuck tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess skin in the mid to lower abdominal area. Any stretch marks found in this region are discarded completely as a result of this procedure. Unlike laser treatment then only fades the stretch marks, the surgical treatment gets rid of them for once and all. Results: Highly Effective in removing stretch marks
