Stretch marks appear as darkened patches of skin, and may be quite unsightly, causing self-consciousness and a lowered self-image. At Total Glow, we have created several excellent solutions for combatting stretch marks so you can start feeling good about your appearance again and showing your body off in public, at the beach or in the bedroom without a second thought.
When our connective tissue goes through a rapid stretching process, such as during childbirth, puberty, or a period of weight loss or weight gain, that is when stretch marks form. Within a stretch mark, the collagen fibers have ruptured, and the blood vessels are now showing through, giving the stretch mark its red or purple tint.
Stretch marks are common in the following patient groups:
Through multiple micro injuries with ultra fine needles, the skin is prompted to produce collagen, a protein that promotes skin suppleness, hydration and a firm, youthful tone. Microneedling is an excellent option for reducing the appearance of stretch marks.Learn More
Chemical peels can help exfoliate the outer layer of damaged skin, while stimulating collagen and elastin regrowth. Once this outer layer is removed, stretch marks may appear less noticeable.Learn More
Laser pulses penetrate the skin to cause a healing response, generating new stores of collagen and elastin which can heal stretch marks from the inside out. Skin will appear more radiant and youthful, fading the red patches where stretch marks used to be.Learn More
With Clear & Brilliant, millions of microscopic energy beams pierce through the skin to stimulate collagen renewal, while beautifully preserving the healthy skin cells in the process. Two different wavelengths are used to diversify your results.Learn More

“My first treatment was with Tina (aesthetician), who is a great example of what Total Glow is all about. She has gorgeous skin and is so warm and friendly. She immediately made me feel even more comfortable. She took me in to one of their well-appointed treatment rooms where we had a consultation. She introduced me to the owner, Terrie who is also beautiful, knowledgeable and oh so gracious.” – S. Murdoch
