Stretch Mark Removal Chicago

It doesn’t matter how they developed stretch marks are hard to live with and have an impact on how you feel about your body. Pregnancy is the most common reason these form, but stretch marks can also become a problem after weight loss, or in some cases because of genetic factors.

Both men and women can see these deep grooves or light puckered marks on the skin develop. There are several treatment options available to lessen or remove these from the stomach, breasts, upper arms, thighs, or hips, and restore a natural smooth appearance to the skin.

How do stretch marks happen?

Usually, striae or stretch marks will show up as a vertical strip of recessed skin. These usually start out as deep red or purple and fade over time, but can leave the skin with a puckered, irregular appearance. The puckered area is uneven and ridge-like, making it look much like a scar. These marks develop when the collagen in the skin breaks down or stretches beyond the point it can return to a normal smooth shape. Hormones such as glucocorticoids work against those who are pregnant or who undergo long periods of weight gain or loss. These hormone levels increase the risk of collagen breakdown underneath the skin.

Stretch marks removal in North Center Chicago

Only a few types of stretch marks are helped with creams or other similar remedies. Deeper marks with ridges and grooves within this skin will need treatment such as dermabrasion and laser treatments. Often for the most natural and smooth effect possible this treatment will need to be spaced out over time.

Our professional staff can also offer other methods of stretch mark removal such as a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck can permanently remove stretch marks below the navel quickly, and also remove excess skins that can cause deep folds.

Shari is amazing. I’ve been getting laser hair removal treatments from her for a while now. She definitely will make you feel as ease. The machine they use is practically painless too. Easy five stars!

Dr. Dhaval Patel is a very friendly, honest, funny, and detailed person. He cares for your questions and wants to ensure that you are more than informed of what is forth coming. He does not sugar coat anything procedure wise and tells you it is a major surgery and to expect just that. I am 2 months post op and I can tell you after 16 years of my old body I am pleased to say even with the fresh scaring, I am pleased with my new look. Dr. Patel not only completed the tummy tuck procedure but also lipo some areas that needed it to ensure that the overall appearance was a great shape. I had lost my breast volume after breast feeding. I did to want implants so he recommended fat transfer to my breasts. What a great suggestion! I have never felt so confident in my body . I can now shop for that two piece that I have never been able to wear. This is a life changing experience and I am grateful that other patients had reviewed him as highly as they did so that I was able to make the right choice. The question is always asked was it worth it? Yes, Yes, Yes, I am a 45 year old mother who can say I do not regret this decision in my life and it was money well spent and would do it again in a heart beat. Dr. patel has changed my way of life. He cares for results and consistently asks for your feedback so that he can fix the issues. The staff from the receptionist to Nurse are over and beyond past friendly. They make the overall experience that much more easier. A++++++
