Unwanted stretch marks can be treated with no downtime in a non-surgical way.
Dermatologically speaking, stretch marks are one of the hardest things to treat. Stretch marks may appear because of pregnancy, weight gain and hormonal changes.
Fractional laser light breaks down stretch marks to prompt new tissue growth, including collagen.
You will likely see slight yet steady results after each session without any harsh side effects like bruising or skin irritation. Laser Stretch Mark Removal sessions take 30 minutes or less and normally you are able to take part in your daily activities directly following your session.
Fractional multibeam technology sends specialized pulses of laser light into your skin, targeting and breaking down stretch marks. This will help generate new, healthy tissue where the stretch marks are creating a smooth and even skin tone.
Expect to see improvement in the tone and texture of the stretch marks.
Sessions typically take less than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
At the beginning of your procedure, you will be given special glasses which will shield your eyes from any hazardous reflected laser light. To start the treatment, a handpiece will be maneuvered over the treatment area sending energy into your skin. You may feel mild discomfort to no discomfort during the treatment depending on the care option we select.
If needed we will provide you with post-treatment guidelines to manage pain. Redness and/or swelling may occur at the treatment site but it typically goes away by the third day. Follow-up treatment sessions will be booked 3-6 weeks apart.
If you are a laser skin revitalization patient, please be aware of the following:
You can look forward to the improved tone and texture of your skin in the first 6 weeks of treatment.
Redness and swelling of the stretch marks may last a few days, but this is just temporary. Talk with your provider about any other side effects and post-treatment care.
Usually, you can continue your daily activities right after your session.
For legal reasons, all medical issues require a referral from your family physician.
