For a truly customized stretch marks treatment, Dr. Truong uses the ICON™/Lux 1540 fractional laser from CynoSure®. The fractional, targeted laser energy preserves the integrity of the top layer of skin while encouraging collagen remodeling from underneath for a smoother surface texture. At the same time, surface discoloration can be improved for a more even skin tone.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Truong will explain more about the process of stretch mark reduction and talk about the types of results you can expect to see. Not all stretch marks can be removed completely. It's common to include stretch mark removal with a tummy tuck, typically as part of a mommy makeover. However, many people are interested in getting stretch mark reduction as a solo treatment as well.
Your appointment time for stretch marks reduction can vary, depending on the size of the target area, how pronounced your stretch marks are and other factors. 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.
Similar to using laser treatments for other types of scar removal, the best stretch mark reduction results may be seen after scheduling a few sessions spaced several weeks apart. Dr. Truong will evaluate the course of treatment that's most likely to help you meet your appearance goals, and let you know what to expect ahead of time.
After your stretch mark removal treatment from Dr. Truong, your stretch marks should be less noticeable, so you can enjoy showing off a more even skin tone and texture for a beautiful final result.
