What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks are an unfortunate fact of life for many people. Anytime the skin has been stretched too far or too fast - such as during puberty, pregnancy, or weight change - these unsightly lines may appear. Just because stretch marks are normal doesn't mean you have to live with them.
Regardless of what caused your stretch marks, laser stretch mark removal is an advanced treatment that can help you get the clearer, smoother skin you desire. It's a nonsurgical approach to improving stretch marks with well-tolerated treatments that require little to no downtime.
A few easy laser stretch mark removal treatments may be all it takes to reveal more beautiful, touchable skin that you'll be proud to show off.
Where can the laser be used?
Laser stretch mark removal can work on any part of the body, including the stomach, hips, arms, breasts and legs. It can treat new stretch marks or stretch marks that you've been living with for years. Laser stretch mark removal uses powerful laser technology to reduce the look of even the darkest stretch marks without harming surrounding skin. It's easy to get started.
What types of stretch marks can be treated?
Laser stretch mark treatment can treat stretch marks caused by pregnancy, weight loss, weight gain and body changes due to puberty. While the laser works best on newer stretch marks, even older stretch marks can be noticeably improved.
How does it work?
Radiance Medspauses a fractional laser from Palomar, the company that invented focused micro-fractional laser technology. Laser stretch mark treatment uses short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin's sub-layers, treating the aging support structure. 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 smooth skin. The new collagen can leave the stretch mark smoother in texture and reduce the appearance of the stretch mark on the skin by improving the color.
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 discomfort during laser stretch mark removal treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people may need three to five treatment sessions for optimum aesthetic results. Sometimes more sessions may be required if additional lightening or smoothing is desired.
How quickly will I recover?
Most people resume regular activities immediately following the treatment session.
Are there any side effects?
Typical side effects of stretch mark treatment include temporary redness, as well as itching and swelling at the treatment site, which typically lasts a few days.
Other possible side effects include blistering, bruising, prolonged redness, lightening or darkening of skin color, scarring, and removal or lightening of freckles. There is a rare risk of infection.
