Secret MnRF Treatment:

Process Of Stretch Marks Removal in Chennai
At Oliva Clinics in Chennai, the Secret MnRF treatment for stretch marks is performed using the following protocol:
- The process starts with the initial consultation with the dermatologist who would observe and assess the cause and intensity of your stretch marks. A thorough analysis by the doctor will help determine the right course of treatment with the Secret MnRF technology.
- Once the initial consultation is completed, proper pre-care is explained before the actual session. The target area is prepared with priming creams for better results. These creams are to be used for two weeks or as per the doctor’s advice.
- On the day of the treatment session, the area to be treated is cleaned and a topical anesthetic is applied.
- After about 45 minutes to one hour, once the anesthetic cream has successfully numbed the target skin, the dermatologist would perform the procedure targeting even the smaller areas of the skin. The doctor will slide the equipment’s hand-piece over this area slowly and carefully so that every small section of the skin is covered.
- Depending on the size of the skin area being treated, this part of the process can take 30 minutes to 45 minutes.
- Once this step is completed, the assisting therapist will clean the area and apply sunscreen and other necessary creams, according to the dermatologist’s advice. Since the treatment does not have any downtime, you can rest for a couple of minutes before you can carry on with the rest of your day.
- Before you leave the clinic, the dermatologist and the certified skin therapist provide post-care instructions.
Before And After Results of Stretch Marks
