About the process
Stretch marks occur as a result of stretching of the skin and are mostly seen during and after pregnancy, rapid weight gain, puberty and hormonal changes. They can occur on any part of the body, commonly seen on lower abdomen, thighs, hips, breasts and upper arms. They are of no health risk but are unsightly.
Cause: There is a break-down of collagen in the deeper layer of the skin as a result of stretching. The outer skin remains intact but appears streaky. These stretch marks are pink or red when fresh but turns silvery white with time. They are permanent and the appearance is a concern to most. As long as the collagen is intact in the deep dermis the stretch marks cannot form.
What is the Stretch Mark Reduction Procedure
During a laser stretch mark removal procedure, a beam of light removes thin layers of skin around the stretch marks. The excimer laser is uniquely effective for this procedure. Instead of burning or cutting the affected skin areas like other lasers, it uses high-energy ultraviolet laser light to disrupt the molecular bonds in the skin tissue, which causes the tissue to disintegrate in a process known as ablation. Once laser stretch mark removal is complete, the treated area will heal quickly, and new layers of healthy skin will form. Stretch marks will have disappeared, and a renewed, healthy appearance will result.
Women of any age who use laser treatments to reduce the appearance of scarring and stretch marks:
- Experience no downtime
- Have minimal discomfort/pain
- Can return to daily activities immediately
- Need one treatment a month for a minimum of three months
- Return to work the same day or a day later
The most important benefit of laser stretch mark removal is its effectiveness. The treatment has a very high rate of patient satisfaction.
A new fractional laser treatment can deliver micro-pulses deep in the dermis. This forms a new collagen in the dermis to reduce and fill in these stretch marks. Each of our bespoke stretch mark treatments works by stimulating collagen, the skin’s natural skin-healing protein. This causes new cell growth and rejuvenates your skin, reducing the appearance of the stretch mark.
