Stretch marks are stretch marks on the skin that can arise because the skin has been stretched too much in a short time. The subcutaneous connective tissue is, as it were, torn. We usually see stretch marks after pregnancy, intensive height growth during puberty, rapid weight gain and excessive muscle growth. Stretch marks do not cause any health problems, but can be cosmetically disturbing. At least 70 percent of women and 40 percent of men have to deal with this problem. Factors such as hormones, predisposition and skin type can all contribute to the development of these subcutaneous scars. We can treat stretch marks with different techniques:
Medical microneedling with Dermapen4
Microneedling is a scientifically recognized and safe technique. At Inskin Institute we apply the medical microneedling Dermapen4, which makes 200 channels per cm2 in the skin without damaging it. With microneedling we can renew the skin from within. During the treatment, new collagen (type 3) and elastin fibers are created. This technique “fills” the skin with new tissue. With the Medical miconeedling pen from Dermapen4 we can set the depth of the needles ourselves. As a result, we never get deeper into the skin than intended and we can guarantee the safety of the treatment.
Fractional laser treatment
With the Fractora from Inmode system we can effectively renew the skin in depth. Different layers of the skin are fractionated with tiny needles, which optimally stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibers. We can safely replace the damage to the connective tissue. This technique is combined with radio waves and this enhances the effect even more.
The Fractora is CE and FDA certified, which monitors the safety of the equipment and treatment.
At Inskin Instiute we work with the Inmode and it is CE and FDA certified.
What effect can you expect?
With 3-6 treatments you can achieve an increase of 400 percent more collagen and elastin. In time, the skin structure will improve and the skin will feel tighter and smoother. Improved blood circulation will also visibly reduce pigment and significantly improve the structure of the skin. For best results, 4-6 treatments are required with an interval of 6 weeks.

Important to know
The recovery time of the treatment depends on the area being treated and the intensity of the treatment. The skin may be temporarily red and slightly swollen and feel itchy. After the treatment it is important to keep the skin dry for the first 24 hours. Some scabs may form. It is important not to scratch. The scabs will fall off on their own after a few days. After the treatment, we recommend avoiding the sun and not using exfoliating products. The treated skin should be protected from the sun as much as possible. If desired, we can advise you on the right post-treatment creams and medical foundation that provide extra comfort and a faster recovery of the skin.
Health insurance reimbursement
