How do stretchmarks form?
Chances are you will get some stretch marks at some point in your life – and this is perfectly normal! Stretch marks are in fact small tears in the dermal (deeper) layer of the skin which result in linear scars. The long scars are areas where the tissue has torn and separated become visible because the skin in that area is a different thickness. The most common areas stretch marks appear is on the stomach, thighs, waist, and arms.
Most stretch mark treatments being advertised are creams and lotions which work on the surface of the skin and usually cannot penetrate into the dermal layer to have any significant effect. Skin rollers and massagers can improve the look of stretch marks temporarily due to the swelling they cause but does not solve the problem.
Because the stretch marks are found in the deep layer of the skin, the treatment for stretch marks naturally has to penetrate into that layer.
How do Laser stretchmarks Treatments Work?
Laser stretch mark removal is ideal for people seeking to minimize the appearance of stretch marks associated with pregnancy, hormonal changes, or weight gain. It works by using fractional laser light to break down stretch marks and naturally trigger healthy, new tissue growth, including collagen. Laser stretch mark treatments are fast, easy, and have little to no downtime.
An average stretch mark treatment session usually takes about 30 minutes. After your treatment, you may notice some redness or sensitivity similar to a sunburn, but you can plan on returning to your normal daily routine right away without any downtime.
Your stretch mark reduction treatment will be customized to your individual condition. Our medical skin experts will provide a recommendation based on the size of the area or areas being treated, how pronounced your stretch marks are, your skin type, and other factors.
