Over the years, women have had to put up with a lot especially in inequalities such as women’s suffrage; cultural, social and gender inequalities such as wage discrimination in the workplace whereby equally qualified women who perform the same work are paid less than their male counterparts; less women in professional education and careers compared to men; gender roles in parenting whereby parents interact differently with their children depending on the gender of the child (e.g. giving feminine toys to girls such as dolls and masculine toys to boys such as cars and toy guns) and teaching girls to be nurturing and caring and boys to be tough and competitive; gender inequalities in relationships in some cultures whereby the males hold the power and the women are still expected to be the primary care giver when it comes to taking care of the children and housework whether or not they work outside the house. To be fair, though, many women relish in the role of primary care giver and say that pregnancy and motherhood is an experience they would never exchange for anything in this world except for the unsightly stretch marks (a scar with the appearance of red or purple lines) on their abdomen caused by the abdominal skin being stretched by a rapidly growing baby in the uterus. For some women, the stretch marks may extend to their thighs, hips, buttocks and breasts. Even people who gain weight rapidly who are not pregnant may be prone to stretch marks. So how do we get rid of stretch marks?
Getting Rid of Stretch Marks
Thankfully, in this day and age, there is a stretch mark treatment Melbourne that can successfully remove these unsightly stretch marks such as skin needling and low level laser therapy.Skin needling is also known as collagen induction therapy and is based on acupuncture in that it uses different size needles to penetrate deeply under the skin to help the body to repair and rejuvenate affected areas; thereby helping it to begin its natural wound healing process. This process also helps with the production of new collagen that will reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Skin needling treatments are charged according to the size of the area being treated and could range from $399 to $599.
Low level laser therapy is also known as cold laser therapy and involves the use of an infra-red laserbeam to penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate and accelerate cell function in the area being treated as well as into injured cells to naturally promote the healing of damaged tissue. This promotes collagen and helps uneven texture and raised tissues to repair; thus helping the removal of stretch marks. Low level laser therapy can be used on any part of the body. To further accelerate the skin’s healing process, low level laser therapy can be used together with laser facial, skin needling, dermal fillers, wrinkle reduction injections, photo rejuvenation, chemical peels or microdermabrasion.Low level laser therapy is charged according to the length of time for each treatment and could range from $39 to $199 per session.
