Treat Stretch Marks in just a few easy laser treatments
Stretch Marks are an unfortunate fact of life for almost every woman. Any time the skin has been stretched too far or too fast, such as during puberty, pregnancy or weight loss, these unsightly lines appear.
Otherwise joyous events such as the arrival of a new baby or a hard-won battle for a new figure can be marred by these distracting marks.
Just because stretch marks are normal, it doesn’t mean you have to live with them. Finally there’s a treatment for stretch marks that helps give you the clear, smooth, touchable skin you’ve been dreaming of. Laser stretch mark treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses pulses of fractional laser light to break down stretch marks and improve the appearance of your skin. In just a few simple treatments, redness can be reduced, stretch marks can be smoothed and your skin can be ready to bare.
It’s a fast and easy treatment that typically takes 30 minutes, yet can deliver superior, long-lasting results. It’s ideal for all stretch marks, no matter what caused them. Best of all, there is typically no downtime with the treatment.
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
Laser stretch mark treatment is appropriate for any skin type, including very light and very dark skin. Your provider will discuss with you whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.
How does it work?
Your provider uses a fractional laser from the company that invented and patented micro-fractional laser technology. Pulses of fractional laser light are used to break down stretch marks, triggering new tissue production at the site and helping to improve stretch mark colour. The new collagen can leave stretch marks looking smoother in texture and reduce their appearance on the skin.
How long does it take?
The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Does it hurt?
Most people feel minimal pain during the laser procedure. Your provider may discuss pain management options with you.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people need three to five treatment sessions for optimum results.
How quickly will I recover?
People typically resume their regular activities immediately following the treatment session.
What can I usually expect after treatment?
Typically, most people experience a temporary redness and swelling of the stretch mark which may last a few days. Your provider will discuss other potential side effects with you.
