Laser Stretch Mark Removal
What is Laser Stretch Mark Removal?
Stretch marks area a common part of life for many men and women. When the skin has been stretched too far or too fast- such as during puberty, pregnancy or weight fluctuations- these unsightly lines appear. Our Laser stretch mark removal uses a FDA-Approved fractional laser device called the ICON by CynoSure Lasers. This treatment delivers fractionated pulses of laser light into the skin to target and break down stretch marks. By doing this the body will help generate healthy new tissue to form in its place. The ICON will help improve the texture and tone of the treated stretch marks while also tightening the skin just a little. This is a non-surgical procedure with no downtime!
What can I expect?
What type of result can I expect?
Multiple treatments are required for this type of skin concern. 3-6 months after your first treatment you will start to see the skin really show improvement. It takes this long to see improvement because it takes 3-6 months for the body to make collagen. This treatment is breaking down and creating new collagen to form where the thin skin is. After recommended treatments, the stretch marks will be almost non-existent!
Treatments are upwards of 30 minutes and for larger areas, topical numbing will be applied for comfort. The treatment itself feels warm as the laser pulses. The skin treated after the treatment will feel a little warm and appear slightly red. There is no downtime after the treatment and you can continue normal activity. A consultation is required to create a skin treatment plan to achieve your skin goals!
