Stretch Mark Removal
Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched too far over a very short period of time, leaving noticeable lines upon the surface of the skin. This can happen during puberty, a period of rapid weight gain or loss, pregnancy, or during a growth spurt. The lighter the color of the skin, the higher the chances are of getting visible stretch marks.
While they’re more often a problem for ladies, women and men alike can suffer from stretch marks and they can have a serious effect on someone’s self-esteem. Stretch marks are not only experienced by pregnant women, they can appear anywhere on your body if the skin has been stretched. The most common places are the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, thighs and bum. Laser removal treatments can now be used to get rid of stretch marks.
Laser stretch mark removal works using fractional laser technology, it sends short pulses of laser energy into the scar tissue, caused when your skin stretched, thus breaking down this scar tissue while simultaneously stimulating your cells to produce new collagen. Together this smooths the appearance of the skin and reduces discoloration. As you have each treatment the stretch mark will gradually fade away as newer healthier skin replaces it.
Laser Stretch Mark Removal is suitable for:
- Pregnancy stretch marks on the belly, hips etc.
- Stretch marks from adolescent growth spurts, providing growth has now finished
- Stretch marks caused by weight gain, or weight loss
