Venus Viva™ NanoFractionalStretch Mark Reduction
What causes Stretch marks?
Stretch marks are the result of isolated areas of skin damage. Extreme skin growth or shrinkage can cause stretch marks. As the body grows, the connecting fibers in the dermis slowly stretch to accommodate slow growth. However, rapid growth leads to sudden stretching. This causes the dermis to tear, allowing deeper layers of skin to show through. This can form stretch marks and contributes to the way they look.
Causes of skin stretching:
- Rapid growth during puberty
- Rapid weight gain/loss
- Rapid increase in muscle bulk as seen with body builders
- Oral or topical steroid use
Venus Viva™ NanoFractional Therapy is an advanced, non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing that works to stimulate deep skin repair and significantly reduce stretch marks. Viva NanoFractional Radiofrequency technology utilizes tiny pins that safely deliver heat through the stretch mark’s surface. The heat creates tiny micro-dermal wounds, which the body then works to heal naturally. This process effectively repairs the damaged stretch mark dermis, stimulating new formation of its two key components, collagen and elastin. And because the wounds are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than lasers or chemical peels. The result is reduction in the depth and width of the stretch mark.
