How Can Stretch Marks Be Treated?

Many women develop stretch marks during pregnancy as the skin expands, but this problem can occur in both men and women as a result of puberty, hormone fluctuations, and/or weight changes. Creams and old wives’ remedies provide little results and require constant application in the hopes of a subtle change in texture or color. However, laser treatment makes stretch mark removal a safe and easy procedure that requires no downtime and provides the best results for clearer, smoother skin. Lasers can be used to treat any area where stretch marks occur, from the stomach to the hips, arms, breasts, and legs. Whether the stretch marks have been there for most of your life or are a recent development, laser treatment may be just the answer.

Treatment for stretch marks involves focusing a laser on the affected area. The laser which dives down deep to activate the body’s natural healing process and stimulate new collagen growth while getting rid of the older, damaged tissue. This new skin will be smoother in texture as well as blending the color in more with your natural skin tone. The procedure takes under an hour to perform in most cases and may be repeated up to five times for the best results. You can typically go about your normal activities immediately afterwards with no down time, and pain is minimal. There may be a slight “sunburned” feeling that fades after a few hours and temporary redness or swelling that will clear up within a few days.
