What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks also known as tiger marks and as the latter suggests, long narrows streaks/strips that develops on the skin when the area is suddenly stretched within a short period of time and the skin does not have sufficient time to recover leading to unwanted scars. They are a type of scar / disfiguring lesions called striae, striae distensae (SD), striae atrophicans, and striae gravidarum. This typically affects women more than men and can appear anywhere on the body, mostly seen on:

  • Stomach

  • Thighs

  • Hips

  • Breasts

  • Upper arms

  • Love handles

Changes in the body, during puberty, pregnancy, weight gain/loss can result in the formation of stretch marks when the skin cannot resume its normal form after an intense period of growth.

Initial stage:
Prior to the formation of stretch marks, the skin will feel dry/itchy/tender. The streaks can appear red/purple/pink/brown.

Mature stage:
Streaks will flatten & fade with time and change to a pale white / silver shade that may be slightly depressed and/ irregular in shape.

SOLUTION? – Fractional RF Microneedling for Stretch Marks


The Fractional RF Microneedling is the world's first microneedle and radio-frequency combined only non-laser, and non-light-based aesthetic procedure that is FDA-cleared to treat stretch marks on all skin tones, including darker skin types who often have complications such as burns or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation with many laser or light-based treatments. Fractional RF Microneedling uses an industry-unique fractional radio-frequency technology combined with microneedles to provide effective, controlled fractional treatments.


The procedure involves penetration of insulated microneedles into the dermis to deliver high-tensioned radiofrequency pulse into the targeted tissue. This results in the body’s own production of elastin and collagen fibres, making skin firmer and healthier. RF combines with the microneedling, so the RF heat is not on the outside layer of the skin, it penetrates much deeper, leaving the top skin layer cool. The microneedles are driven directly into the skin at a certain depth, and radiofrequency energy is then released inside of the skin. This gives a more uniformed deep tissue warming that will then stimulate collagen and when new collagen fibers are produced, stretch marks will appear lighter in appearance.

Say Goodbye to Stretch Marks: The Comprehensive Guide to Stretch Mark Removal with Fractional RF Microneedling

Stretch marks, or striae distensae, are a common skin concern. They are characterized by reddish-brown, pink, or purple streaks that develop when the skin stretches abruptly due to conditions such as pregnancy, rapid weight gain, or even sudden growth spurts. The appearance of these early stretch marks can change over time, fading from a striking red or pink to a subtler purplish-blue or pale streak. As the skin stretches further, new stretch marks may also appear, and some may even develop into newer stretch marks with a slightly different appearance.

Several factors contribute to the development of stretch marks, including:

  • Rapid weight or muscle gain

  • Pregnancy

  • Genetics

  • Certain medical conditions, such as Cushing’s syndrome and Marfan syndrome, which respectively lead to an overproduction of cortisol and decrease skin elasticity

These factors significantly contribute to the ability to develop stretch marks, including older stretch marks, as stretch marks affect the skin tissue.

Notably, these marks on the upper arms are more common in women than in men.

Fractional RF Microneedling: The Breakthrough Treatment

Fractional RF Microneedling is a cutting-edge procedure that merges traditional microneedling techniques with radio-frequency energy to target the dermis layer of the skin. This stimulates collagen production and enhances skin elasticity, providing an effective treatment for stretch marks.

The treatment is FDA-approved and safe for all skin types. It offers improved outcomes in skin tightening and scar reduction, going beyond the capabilities of traditional microneedling treatments.

The Science Behind Fractional RF Microneedling

So, how does Fractional RF Microneedling work? The treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production by using insulated microneedles to deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy directly into the dermis layer. This RF energy strategically heats the tissue beneath the skin’s surface while leaving the topmost layer unharmed, resulting in:

  • Uniform deep tissue warming

  • Increased collagen and elastin production

  • Improved skin texture and tone

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles

  • Tightening and firming of the skin

This combination of RF therapy with microneedling achieves faster and more pronounced rejuvenation results compared to traditional microneedling. The procedure effectively targets the root of the problem – the dermis layer, where stretch marks form – and stimulates the body’s natural healing process, leading to the production of fresh collagen and elastin fibers.

Benefits of Fractional RF Microneedling

Fractional RF Microneedling comes with several benefits that make it a preferred choice for treating stretch marks. One of the key advantages of this procedure is its adjustable microneedles. These can be customized to target specific depths, making it a versatile treatment for a range of skin concerns and scar depths.

In addition, this treatment is less invasive and offers minimal downtime compared to other procedures like Fractional CO2 Laser, which require longer recovery times. This makes Fractional RF Microneedling a convenient alternative for individuals seeking effective stretch mark treatment without disrupting their routines.

The Fractional RF Microneedling Procedure

The Fractional RF Microneedling procedure is relatively straightforward. To ensure comfort, the skin is numbed using a topical anesthetic, or in some cases, a local anesthetic is injected. The procedure itself involves a device equipped with fine needles that puncture the skin to create controlled micro-wounds while simultaneously releasing radiofrequency energy to enhance skin remodeling.

Generally, the entire process takes around 10 to 20 minutes, varying with the size of the area being treated. This procedure triggers a natural healing response that involves an increase in collagen production – essential for reducing the appearance of stretch marks.

Results and Longevity

Improvements from Fractional RF Microneedling for stretch mark removal typically become visible after 2-3 weeks from the initial treatment, with optimal outcomes peaking at about 12 weeks following the final session. As with many aesthetic treatments, patience is key. The body’s natural healing processes take time, but the wait is certainly worth the impressive results this treatment can offer.

To achieve optimal results in stretch mark reduction, patients may require several sessions, though sometimes a series of 4-6 sessions may be recommended, with each session spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. The no. of sessions definitely vary between individuals and can be better advised during your appointment when we assess your stretch mark condition.
