A quote I found on Pinterest and liked.
Keep building that foundation.
I went to the ProSkin Clinic again to get my dermaroller treatment for my stretch marks. I wasn't nervous because I've had tattoos done before I just thought it would be similar. I was advised to use numbing cream so like I said in my previous post on one side I would use numbing cream on the other I wouldn't to compared the difference, so I can see for myself the differences, I did and you will see later on in the post how it really did make a difference. I went in, lay on a nice and comfortable bed, put some tissue around the areas and we got started really quick.
I would say ' it's a bit of a lunchtime treatment' as in it doesn't take more than 30-40 minutes.
The lady would performed the procedure was Agnieszka, she really was amazing! I started with the numb side, wiping the whole area down to sanitise the area. It was like a mini roller(with spikes may I add) rolling over the whole stretch marked area. It really didn't hurt at it, it actually tickled.. I had a giggle at one point. It was this odd sensation, but it was very quick this side.
As I was getting it done I was chatting with the manager (Aneta) and lady doing my procedure. Between each treatment they recommend 2 weeks, depending on skin type and how the body reacts. With my skin type - 4 weeks is a better time to leave between treatments to avoid skin discolouration. The amount of treatment it takes is between 10-12 to get the most effective results, again it depends on your skin type and how your body reacts to the treatment. After the one side, I got creams rubbed into the area.
We then moved onto the side with no numbing cream, repeating the process again. Now I'm not gunna lie, it didn't tickle, and I wasn't laughing this time but it wasn't crazy painful. It hurt but it was a bearly pain, saying that I had to stop a few times because it made me move and twist a bit from the discomfort. I think my skin reacted better to the non-numb side, it looked more red by the end of the treatment.
About hour after the treatment and my numb side was still numb, no pain no feeling at all. The otherside, I can feel something but it's not painful it's just that I can feel something different has happened to that side of me. After about 2 hours the area should go back to normal, just letting the area breath is advisedplus don't do any itching of the area or sweating and working the body hard I.e no gym ( like we need an excuse not to go to the gym!) The treatment itself took about 30 minutes roughly, but chatting etc you want to leave about an hour in your day for this.
All the equipment used was sterile, and in new disposable packets opened in front of my eyes, and gloves were worn during the treatment.
The most painful area for this treatment are the upper lip and forehead, although being quite slim myself, when it hit my hip bone it was quite painful aswell. I had such a lovely person doing my treatment it put me at ease instantly, everyone in the place in general is lovely and friendly. As a mother I wanted to know if the treatment could be done on Breastfeeding mothers , I was told that they do not advise it for breastfeeding mothers , although the treatment won't directly effect the milk, the skin would be more sensitive for breastfeeding mothers so they would not recommend the treatment. This is a treatment like all other clinical treatments, it takes time and money. So make sure that you take time your time and consider the aftercare and other factors when you are thinking of getting anything. The treatment price menu is below from the website:
A few hours after my treatment and I can see a difference within the stretch marks, I feel as if they not as visible as before, from a non-medical point of view I would say I wouldn't even need 6 sessions to get rid of them completely.
