If you have stretch marks from pregnancy or weight fluctuations, you may embrace them as tiger stripes.
But you may also feel self-conscious about noticeable lines on your breasts, hips, thighs, abdomen, arms, buttocks or legs.
For women and men who want to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and refresh their skin, a fractionated laser treatment may offer an ideal solution.
Continue reading to learn all about this revolutionary stretch mark treatment, including how it works and expected results.
What Is Stretch Mark Treatment?
Stretch mark treatment is a noninvasive laser-based procedure designed to smooth skin and minimize stretch marks.
It’s performed in an office setting and can target pink, red, or white stretch marks on the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, buttocks, breasts, and back.
Most patients find the treatment to be extremely quick and comfortable and appreciate the fact that it doesn’t require surgery or downtime.
How Can Lasers Eliminate Stretch Marks?
During a stretch mark treatment, a fractionated laser is used to create microscopic injuries in the skin. The body responds to this controlled damage with a wound healing effect that increases production of collagen and elastin.
Subsequently, tissue is remodeled from the inside out, with new, fresh skin replacing damaged areas.
What Are the Benefits of Stretch Mark Treatment?
One of the key benefits of a stretch mark treatment is that it visibly improves the appearance of unwanted striae within a few sessions.
And because each session stimulates collagen and elastin growth, results are cumulative and become more evident over time.
Additionally, the procedure is safe and effective for all skin types and tones and can correct old and new stretch marks.
With that being said, stretch marks that are in the early stages of development (red or pink) are typically more responsive that those that have matured and turned white.
Best of all, a stretch mark treatment can rejuvenate your skin and restore confidence without any downtime.
