DIAGNOSIS AND COMMON TREATMENTS
Stretch marks are easy to diagnose based on an examination of the cutaneous layer of the skin and by referring to medical records. Until now, the only cost-effective treatment has been the application of cosmetic creams. Several studies have shown that, when topical and active treatments were compared to a placebo, there was no statistically significant difference in the extent of stretch marks between each of the three groups. Nonetheless, creams and oils may help to treat dry skin and reduce itching.
Since 2009, other studies have examined the topic of multipolar radiofrequency therapy (using equipment similar to the new Back3SE). Patients who have been treated in this way have seen an improvement after treatment of the stretch marks, with 88% reporting as satisfied or very satisfied.
In conclusion, this clinically proven treatment for stretch marks is pain-free and reduces the appearance of stretch marks, while patients further benefit from a reduction in their waist or thigh circumference.
Today, Carol, a phsyiotherapist and beauty expert discusses her experience of treating stretch marks using the Back3SE:
“Stretch marks have always been a problem in my work life. By buying a Winback-Beauty device and receiving the specific training, I was able to have my therapeutic needs met. In fact, the unique multipolar mode allows me to aim the energy from the Winback directly at the dermal layer. This energy stimulates the cells of the dermis, while the patient experiences a warm, pleasant sensation. Cellular stimulation optimizes metabolism while stimulating collagen formation and accelerating the wound healing process. I always use the electrode in conjunction with an intense hand massage to realign the fibroblasts cells. Objectively speaking, my patients observe improvements in their stretch marks after six weeks of treatment, with two sessions per week. Visually, their stretch marks are shallower and thinner, and the skin around the scar tissue is tighter. My sessions last 30 minutes. I am delighted that I can finally offer my customers effective, affordable treatment – and I get recommended by word of mouth every single week!”
