It doesn’t matter if you are male or female, young or old, stretch marks plague millions of Americans and are one of the top cosmetic concerns. Stretch marks are actually a form of dermal scarring that occurs when you undergo rapid growth spurts. They commonly occur during puberty, pregnancy, rapid breast enlargement or implants, weight gain/loss and fast muscle growth of bodybuilding. ]
Laser stretch mark treatment is a non-surgical procedure that breaks down stretch marks and improves 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.
Laser stretch mark reduction treatment reaches deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure without harming surrounding skin. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. This will help generate healthy new tissue to form in its place that is smoother and more even in skin tone. It’s a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime. In just a few fast, easy treatment sessions, scars are much less visible, leaving behind smoother, more attractive skin.
The ideal candidate has realistic expectations for the procedure, is in good medical health, can commit to the recovery time, and is aware of the risks involved. This treatment can be performed on any skin type, light or dark, and on any type of stretch marks, young or old, white or red. The only way to know for sure if stretch mark reduction is right for you is to schedule a consultation.
The treatment can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Slight redness or localized swelling can occasionally occur, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after treatment.
Typically, patients will see results in 4 – 6 treatments, though this number will vary based upon skin tone and several other factors. Your laser technician will talk to you about variables that may affect your individual results.
Treated skin area may appear red or irritated for a few days after treatment. It is also important to keep it out of direct sun exposure for a few weeks. Typically, you may resume your daily activities immediately following the treatment session.
Pricing varies based on body and skin types along with combined procedures performed. Please call or schedule a consultation for more information.
