Stretch marks have long been seen as a sign of age or poor care of one’s body, and have been associated with negative perceptions of the self. However, this doesn’t need to be the case – read on to find out how you can treat stretch marks effectively in Singapore.
Why do stretch marks cause so much distress?
Stretch marks are a common experience for many people, especially in post-natal ladies whose once taut abdomens have become ‘flabby’ and ‘unsightly’ after giving birth. While stretch marks occur naturally for many people, they shouldn’t be something one should feel self-conscious about. However, this is easier said than done for many – we are constantly bombarded with images of ‘ideal’ bodies in advertisements, and they have influenced how we view not only our own bodies, but other’s as well. As such, having stretch marks on one’s body can affect one’s self esteem and mood.
You’re not alone if you find it embarrassing to wear clothes that could reveal your stretch marks. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s alright to feel this way about yourself. This is why you can look into safe and effective ways to remove stretch marks, and we’ve got just the solution for you!
How can stretch marks be treated?
Did you know that stretch marks can now be treated using Venus Viva™, the world’s 1st Nano-fractional RF™? This advanced skincare rejuvenation machine can diminish & improve the appearance of stretch marks significantly. Here’s how it works:
Venus Viva™ works using tiny pins that safely deliver heat (via NanoFractional RF™) through the skin’s surface. This in turn creates tiny micro-dermal wounds on the skin, which the body then works to heal naturally. This method taps on your body’s innate healing capabilities and allows your skin to naturally repair signs of skin damage seen on the skin’s surface, including stretch marks.
Because the wounds caused by these tiny pins are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than conventional lasers or chemical peels. The result is smoother, healthier skin with minimal downtime. If you or someone you know is struggling with issues related to stretch marks, you can look into this safe and effective service provided by skincare clinics such as Mint Medical Aesthetics.
Apart from relying only on medical technological advancements, it is equally important to lead a healthy lifestyle in the following ways:
- Drink plenty of water every day
- Eat your greens, and reduce intake of processed sugar and fried foods
- Exercise regularly, at a recommended 150 minutes average per week
All these lifestyle changes may seem minor, but they will be significant in improving your health – and your skin – in the long run. By combining positive and healthy living with effective solution like the Venus Viva™, you won’t have to worry about stretch marks anymore!
