Stretch Marks Q & A

What causes stretch marks?

Stretch marks appear after quick periods of skin stretching or expansion. You may develop stretch marks due to:

  • Pregnancy
  • Rapid weight gain or weight loss
  • Adolescence
  • Rapid muscle growth with aggressive resistance training

Genetics and hormones play a role in whether or not you develop stretch marks. Not everyone has them.

You notice stretch marks at first as reddish, brown, or purple striations. Over time, they fade and may appear white or silvery. They also have a bumpy texture that interferes with a smooth feel to your skin.

How does TempSure Envi treat stretch marks?

At home treatments, such as topical creams and self massage are purported to help eliminate stretch marks, but they rarely work. TheTempSure Envi radiofrequency device, however, can be effective in helping you reduce the appearance of these unsightly striations.

Radiofrequency energy penetrates your outermost layer of skin to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a skin-strengthening compound that boosts your skin’s smoothness, firmness, and strength. 

When TempSure Envi energy triggers collagen development, the ugliness of stretch marks smooths, and discoloration fades.

What areas are eligible for TempSure Envi stretch mark treatment?

TempSure Envi radiofrequency energy can be applied to most places where you find stretch marks. This includes the:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Flanks

The team at Ferguson Family Practice evaluates the length of time you’ve had your stretch marks, as well as your health and age when recommending TempSure Envi treatments.

When you are treated with radiofrequency energy, you’ll also get the positive side effect of rejuvenated and smooth skin in treated areas.

How many sessions will I need to see stretch mark reduction?

You notice results after just one session. Positive results continue to develop for the next 6-12 months as your body continues to renew collagen and your skin firms up and smooths out.

The providers at Ferguson Family Practice help you understand the positive effects you can achieve with TempSure Envi radiofrequency treatments.
