Stretch marks plague a large number of women and men and a can appear for a variety of reasons that caused the skin to be stretched too much, too fast. Weight gain and loss, body building and pregnancy are all common reasons that cause unsightly stretch marks to appear.
But, just because stretch marks are common, doesn’t mean you have to live with them! There is a treatment for stretch marks that will eliminate them and return your skin to its previous clear, smooth, touchable skin. 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. With just a few painless treatments, redness can be reduced, stretch marks can be smoothed, and your skin can be returned to its natural look.
Laser Stretch Mark Removal is a fast and easy treatment that typically takes 30 minutes or less, yet it can deliver superior, long-lasting results. The treatment is for all types of stretch marks, no matter what has caused them. And best of all, there is usually no downtime with the treatment.
How Does a Laser Stretch Mark Procedure Work?
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 the stretch mark smoother in texture and it reduces the look of the stretch mark on the skin. The procdure may take anywhere from a few minutes to 30 minutes to perform.
Will I Feel Any Pain During My Stretch Mark Removal Treatment?
Most people feel minimal pain during the laser procedure. Our aesthetician may discuss pain management options with you but are typically not necessary. Most people experience a temporary redness and swelling of the stretch mark which may last a few days. Before your laser treatment session, our aesthetician will discuss other potential side effects with you.
How Many Treatments Will I Need Before I See Results?
It depends on the amount of stretch marks that you would like removed. However, most patients require three to five treatment sessions in order to completely remove all signs of stretch marks.
Is There Any Downtime Involved?
Not usually. Most patients resume their regular daily activities immediately after the treatment session.
