Can RF Microneedling Treatment Help Fade Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are an unwanted result of pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss, and hormone changes. Though they do not harm your health, these unsightly marks can significantly impact your appearance and self-confidence. Nabi Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to help restore your complexion.

Dr. Michael Klingerman uses Morpheus8™ RF treatment to target a wide range of imperfections that can make you feel uncomfortable in your skin. Call now to learn about this innovative therapy and how it can reduce stretch marks. Our Scranton, PA clinic is committed to helping you achieve the beautiful, luminous skin you have always wanted.

Why are stretch marks so common?

Stretch marks occur when our skin stretches out too quickly, causing collagen and elastin fibers in the tissue to break down. Most women develop stretch marks during pregnancy or when gaining weight, but other factors like genetics and hormone changes contribute to their appearance.

There is no "quick fix" for stretch marks because they are caused by skin damage. Unfortunately, over-the-counter creams are not designed to address the underlying cause. Now, with radiofrequency microneedling, you can target stretch marks directly by encouraging the production of collagen and elastin.

Who is a candidate for stretch mark treatment?

Anyone who wants to reduce stretch marks may qualify for Morpheus8, but Dr. Klingerman should perform a thorough assessment first. We want to ensure your skin is healthy enough to undergo the process. For example, people with active acne breakouts or open lesions and wounds should wait until those areas have healed before turning to any form of RF treatment.

The good news is that RF microneedling in Scranton, PA can address all kinds of skin issues at once – from wrinkles and sun damage to loss of elasticity, discoloration, and stretch marks. Our trained team creates custom treatment plans so you can enjoy smoother, virtually blemish-free skin long-term.

How does radiofrequency microneedling fade stretch marks?

The Morpheus8 system uses a special handpiece to create tiny, microscopic channels in the skin. These openings allow cutting-edge radiofrequency energy to penetrate into the targeted area and improve collagen and elastin production. This is done without damaging the surrounding skin or causing unnecessary discomfort.

How is RF microneedling performed?

Nabi Medical Aesthetics begins RF microneedling by applying a topical anesthetic to the target area. This helps ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Dr. Klingerman then passes the handpiece over your skin, creating tiny microchannels across the surface. Radiofrequency energy is delivered through the needles.

Individual results vary, but most patients benefit from 3 – 4 sessions scheduled about one month apart, so your skin has time to heal and respond to the RF treatment. We may recommend occasional follow-up appointments to maintain optimal results. Any patients who develop new stretch marks in the future are always welcome to work with our staff.
