Scar Rejuvination Treatment
Recommended for skin rejuvenation, for scar revision, for both old and new scars. The MicroGlide GF serum has stem growth factors that help improve the appearance of embarrassing scars from acne, pregnancy, and even scars from old injury sites. Most people who have experienced a recent change in weight (gain or loss) or pregnancy can relate to loss of the skin's elasticity (loose sagging skin) and texture irregularities; they will benefit most from this treatment. The growth factors will help to rebuild the clients’ collagen; improving the overall appearance of the client’s skin. We recommend 6-9 treatments that scheduled 6-8 weeks apart to achieve maximum skin rejuvenation.
How It Works:
1. A topical gel is applied to clean skin. In most cases your practitioner will use a hyaluronic acid peptide gel. This is a soothing product that helps the MicroPen™ tip glide across your skin while delivering topical MicroGlide GF with Stem Growth Factors – the building blocks for healthy new skin – deep into the skin.
2. Your practitioner will select the appropriate pen setting and number of passes to address your skin’s specific needs.
3. As the Eclipse MicroPen™ tip is applied to the skin thousands of superficial micro-channels or holes are created every second. The process stimulates your skins natural ability to heal itself.
4. This repair process begins almost immediately. As a result, new collagen and elastin produce softer, firmer skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and textural issues.

Life is stressful enough. You deserve to feel comfortable in your skin.
Stretch Marks, or Stria Distensae in the medical community, a natural skin condition afflicting both men and women. Thankfully, stretch marks rarely cause serious health issues; however, those of us with stretch marks know very well the stress, psychological harm and discomfort stretch marks pose. While the exact cause of how or why stretch marks develop is undergoing extensive research, the factors that cause these unsightly marks are still poorly understood. Various theories exist, ranging from rapid stretching of the dermis (i.e. rapid weight gain during pregnancy or body building), growth spurts during puberty in adolescents, increase in certain hormones, others pose genetics may play a role and some scientists even propose stretch marks can result from infection.
Naturally women try to avoid them, investing a lot of time, energy and money to prevent and treat stretch marks. Our mission here at ScarMD® is to provide women and men the best, highest quality and most effective scar prevention and therapy products, restoring your confidence and your skin.
Common Causes of Stretch Marks:
Pregnancy is the #1 cause of stretch marks among women. The risk of stretch marks increase greatly after the sixth month of pregnancy. As your body prepares for birth it produces hormones that help soften ligaments, these also soften skin fibers making your dermis more susceptible to striae. This is why it is extremely important for mothers to massage our Stretch Mark Prevention Oil twice daily for the best protection against unsightly stretch marks.
Rapid Weight Gain
Individuals that experience rapid weight gain are more likely to get stretch marks, for example body builders. Regular dieting and then subsequent rapid weight gain will also produce stretch marks. To prevent stretch marks, doctors recommend that body builders always keep their skin at maximum hydration while using effective stretch mark prevention oil for maximum protection.
Young people tend to grow very fast during puberty which puts extra strain on the dermis. Males often get stretch enough for our young loved ones, why add the extra stress of being self-conscious about stretch marks, especially marks on their shoulders and back, whereas females tend to get them on their hips, thighs and breasts. Life is hard during such critical times?
Fact: It’s always more effective to prevent than treat stretch marks, that’s why doctors recommend that parents ease this transition into adulthood by encouraging their growing teens to take a proactive approach against unsightly stretch mark during these periods of rapid growth, especially young women.
If you have close relatives who have stretch marks (such as your mother) the risk may be greater.
