Safe & Effective Stretch Mark Removal Treatment
Most Advanced Treatments To Get Rid Of Stretch Marks Permanently
Stretch marks are permanent lines in the skin that feel like indentations or ridges on touching. They occur due to excessive stretching of the skin in body areas such as the abdomen, breast, buttocks, arms, thighs and hips. These stretch marks are usually asymptomatic but are a significant aesthetic concern due to their permanent nature. People find it challenging to minimise their appearance and look for safe and effective ways to reduce them.
However, leading dermatologists at Oliva perform advanced, non-surgical and painless stretch mark removal treatment using the latest USFDA-approved technology to give visible results. Find out more about the treatment options, procedure, technology used, risks and results right here to make an informed decision.
What Are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks appear as red or purplish linear streaks in the skin that occur due to damaged collagen and elastin fibres in the deeper tissue because of excessive stretching of the skin. They may gradually fade and become thin silver or whitish lines. However, they do not disappear completely, even with time.
Stretch marks occur when the skin stretches quickly, like in the case of a pregnant woman, in areas around the abdomen, breasts and buttocks, but may also appear on the limbs during a pubertal growth spurt. They can also occur due to the use of steroids. Stretch marks are usually asymptomatic but may occasionally be itchy during the early stages.
Who Is At Risk Of Getting Stretch Marks?
Anyone can get stretch marks at any age. However, the following risk factors increase the likelihood:
- Pregnancy, especially in the last trimester
- Quick weight gain or fluctuation
- Growth spurt during adolescence
- Women are more prone than men
- Personal or family history of stretch marks
- Use of systemic or topical steroid
- Genetic disorders like Marfan syndrome or endocrine disorders like Cushing syndrome
Can You Prevent Stretch Marks?
You cannot prevent stretch marks completely, but you can take some steps to minimise the risk of occurrence:
- Avoid Rapid Weight Fluctuations: Controlled weight gain or loss can minimise the risk of stretch marks.
- Increase Your Hydration: Drinking sufficient fluids prevents dehydration and stretch marks, as dry skin is prone to damage.
- Consume A Nutritious Diet: Intake of essential nutrients like Vitamins C, D, E, Zinc, and protein can help maintain healthy skin texture and quality and prevent early stretch marks. Your doctor is the best person to prescribe vital supplements to improve skin health if needed.
- Seek Early Medical Attention: If you cannot prevent stretch marks, seek early medical treatment to minimise them at the initial stage. Treating old stretch marks is more complex and challenging than reducing new ones.
Advanced Stretch Mark Removal Treatments At Oliva
Here are a few treatments available at Oliva for reducing stretch marks with varying degrees of efficacy. Your dermatologist may recommend them as solo or combo treatment based on the severity of the condition, cause, skin type and more:
- Topical Applications: Doctors at Oliva may prescribe topical retinoids, glycolic and hyaluronic acid for long-term application to reduce new stretch marks that are still developing. However, these topical applications may not effectively minimise old stretch marks as they have little or no tissue activity.
- Laser Therapy: Leading dermatologists at Oliva use the latest USFDA-approved Pixel Erbium YAG laser technology to reduce the appearance of stretch marks with precision over multiple sessions. The targeted laser therapy stimulates collagen production and results in a visible improvement in the skin texture. Watch this video to understand the procedure at Oliva:
- Micro-needling Radiofrequency: This advanced treatment uses microneedles to deliver radiofrequency energy. The minimally invasive treatment heats the deeper layers of skin and stimulates collagen and elastin formation. It effectively minimises both old and new stretch marks.

The non-surgical stretch mark removal treatment is safe for all skin types and tones, including those with sensitive skin and a tendency to get blemishes and marks quickly. Experienced dermatologists at Oliva provide pre- and post-care guidance and use USFDA-approved technology to minimise any risk of side effects and ensure maximum safety.
Usually, dermatologists recommend 4-8 sessions at monthly intervals for a significant reduction in the appearance of stretch marks. However, the exact number of sessions you need at Oliva depends on your skin tone, type, age and severity of stretch marks, suitable modality recommended as solo or combo procedures and more.
