Houston (PRWEB) July 29, 2008 -- http://www.carboxytherapymd.com/ [Carboxytherapy], a cosmetic skin rejuvenation method and http://www.aestheticservicesmd.com/ [stretch mark] treatment that makes use of carbon dioxide, has arrived in Houston. Dr. Michelle Zaniewski-Singh M.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.E., C.M.E.S., F.A.S.L.M.S. is the first physician to introduce the technique to Houston residents.
Carboxytherapy is a nonsurgical treatment for body and http://www.carboxytherapymd.com/ [skin rejuvenation] which is very popular in Europe and South America. This technique has a number of applications but Dr. Zaniewski-Singh feels that it is the most effective way to treat stretch marks with no downtime.
The supporting framework of the skin is composed of two proteins, collagen and elastin. Stretch marks are scars in the intermediate layer of the skin, the dermis, caused by disruption of the collagen and elastin framework. This can occur with pregnancy, with puberty, at the time of rapid weight gain and under the influence of the hormone cortisol even without weight gain. In the stretch mark the superficial skin layer overlying the dermal scar, the epidermis, is thinned.
Treatments such as microdermabrasion and retinols target the epidermis but not the dermis. Vascular lasers help red or pink discoloration but do not correct the dermal damage. Until now it has been very difficult to treat stretch marks effectively.
