Stretch Marks and Scarring

Stretch marks and scarring are often the result of skin stretching or injury, and they can appear as discolored, indented, or raised marks on the skin, which can be a source of cosmetic concern.

Stretch Marks and Scarring

Stretch marks and scarring are common skin issues that affect self-esteem and body confidence. At Precision Aesthetics, we believe in enhancing your natural beauty and helping you love the skin you’re in. We offer a range of innovative, non-surgical treatments for stretch marks and scarring, all within the safety and privacy of our boutique office.

What Causes
Stretch Marks?

  • Growth Spurts: Stretch marks can develop during periods of rapid growth, such as puberty.
  • Pregnancy: Pregnant individuals often experience stretch marks as the abdomen expands to accommodate the growing baby.
  • Weight Fluctuations: Rapid weight gain or loss can lead to the formation of stretch marks on various parts of the body.

Stretch marks, or striae, are a type of scarring that occurs when the skin stretches or shrinks rapidly. They initially appear as reddish or purplish lines and may slowly fade to a lighter color over time.

What treatments are available for stretch marks and scarring?

At Precision Aesthetics, we offer personalized treatment protocols designed specifically for each client after a comprehensive evaluation. We utilize over a dozen cutting-edge technologies to address specific issues and achieve your goals.


    One of our renowned treatments is Carboxytherapy, a procedure that uses carbon dioxide gas to improve skin elasticity, reduce cellulite, and minimize the appearance of stretch marks. This treatment has been extensively researched and spearheaded by our expert, Dr. Lisa A. Zdinak.


    Carboxytherapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses carbon dioxide (CO2) injections to improve the appearance of certain skin conditions like dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and scars. The principle behind carboxytherapy is the body’s natural reaction to an increase in CO2 levels – improved blood flow.

    When we breathe, our bodies take in oxygen and expel CO2. This balance is essential for maintaining the health and vitality of our skin. Conditions like dark under-eye circles, cellulite, and scars are often associated with poor blood circulation in the affected area.

How does Carboxytherapy work?

Carboxytherapy works by injecting a small amount of CO2 gas into these problem areas.

  • The body perceives this increase in CO2 as a signal that there is an oxygen deficit and responds by increasing blood flow to the region. This enhanced circulation brings with it a rush of oxygen-rich red blood cells.
  • The red blood cells pick up the excess CO2 injected during carboxytherapy and carry it back to the lungs. Here, the CO2 is expelled from the body during exhalation, and the cycle starts anew with the next inhalation of oxygen.
  • This increased blood flow not only improves the skin’s color and texture but also stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps maintain the skin’s elasticity and firmness. 

In summary, carboxytherapy “tricks” the body into improving blood circulation to specific areas, promoting healing, rejuvenation, and enhancing the overall appearance of the skin.
