This new treatment has revolutionized the history of old procedures without the need for surgical intervention.
The root of the concern for physical appearance comes from an aesthetic legacy located beyond our contemporary memory. The Ancient World witnessed an endless number of beauty canons for whose adaptation they had to undergo cosmetic formulas and preparations that today have been partially rescued. In the field of stretch marks, Egyptian women were already trying to avoid the appearance of skin atrophies during pregnancy, prevention that was sealed by using special ointments and oils to improve skin hydration.

The medical heritage that today alleviates most of the aesthetic concerns has not been entirely fruitful in alleviating the effects of excessive skin tightening. To date, the lack of aestheticism caused by this type of imperfection of the dermis had not been eliminated with determination and efficiency. However, in recent years a new technique baptized under the name of biodermogenesis has revolutionized the history of old treatments without the need to subject the patient to surgical intervention. The result of this pioneering method is the definitive elimination of stretch marks.
Adolescents and pregnant women, are among the most affected
The incidence of stretch marks in the general population, which places women as the greatest exponent of this phenomenon, has based the results of its statistics on two of the most studied physiological changes. Puberty and pregnancy are essential parts of its manifestation, with the rate of onset between 30 and 70% in adolescent cases and between 70 and 90% in pregnant women.
The variability of the results is as or more surprising as the fact that the causes that cause stretch marks are still not entirely clear. However, the latest medical advances indicate that these scars, derived from excessive stretching of the skin, occur due to defects in the dermis itself, which end up altering its resistance and causing visible fractures in the skin.
A non-invasive, painless, and highly effective treatment
Until now, to combat this unsightly effect on the body, the patient could undergo a Dermolipectomy process, which through surgical intervention allowed to stretch and eliminate excess skin. However, although the abdomen could recover part of its elasticity and its original shape, in no case was this method useful to eradicate stretch marks. Hence the revolutionary character of a non-invasive technique is not very aggressive and as effective as biodermogenesis.
With Italian origin, this pioneering method developed by Doctor Pier A. Bacci and tested by the School of Dermatology of Pisa has gradually spread in our country. Although the treatment has yet to be implemented regularly, indeed, its revolutionary performance in the field of aesthetics has already starred in several discussion tables in the last five years.
Without going any further, the annual course of the Spanish Society of Cosmetic Medicine and Surgery (SEMCC) held in 2009 gave a more than outstanding space to this new anti-stretch mark technique. A treatment that is the only technology successfully tested in this field and tested with excellent results on a total of 2000 patients of various ages. The results obtained through the skin check performed by ultrasound and biopsies speak for themselves: no trace of scars or stretch marks.
Electrotherapy and vasodilation, are the keys to eliminating stretch marks
Biodermogenesis, which allows the stretch mark to be progressively filled in, has the main objective of making this scar on the skin practically imperceptible. It is a non-surgical and non-painful treatment, so its minimally invasive nature is compounded by the spectacular cast of results.
This method to permanently eliminate stretch marks is developed in four different phases. The first of them consists of performing a superficial mechanical peeling, while in the second step the treatment is supplied with electrotherapy. At this point, the patient is subjected to skin absorption of active ingredients specifically developed to cause tissue regeneration and reactivate microcirculation in the area where the stretch mark is located.
The third step of this new aesthetic procedure consists of localized work on the affected skin area. To do this, the doctor uses a special head that helps to suck the skin and cause vasodilation. Thanks to the properties of this particular roller, which generates the same heat that occurs naturally in the tissue, fibroblasts are stimulated and the production of collagen and elastin is caused.
The fourth phase of biodermogenesis is based on the performance of a lymphatic micro-drainage, which eliminates the waste generated by the increase in cellular activity. Likewise, to recover the pH and the hydrolipidic film, which covers the outer part of the epidermis and protects it naturally, the treatment ends with the topical application of products that restore the balance of the skin.
Goodbye to purple scars and bloating
Although to date it was not possible to speak of an absolute eradication of stretch marks, the truth is that this revolutionary technique manages to combat the anomaly both in its red or purple state, the result of excessive cortisol production, and in its distension phase. The latter case manifests itself as atrophic or white and appears in pregnant women or adolescents during some of the parts of their body development, as well as in processes of great weight loss.
Undergoing a biodermogenesis treatment does not require any type of subsequent recovery. The therapy, which should last for at least 15 or 20 sessions, can be applied to both the abdomen and the thighs, breasts, or buttocks, which are the main parts of the body affected by the appearance of stretch marks.
