Stretch Mark Treatment
Laser Stretch Mark Treatment
In most cases, a series of treatments is required to completely remove stretch marks. The procedure is very safe with an extremely low incidence of side effects, all of which are temporary and minor.
We also offer a variety of non-surgical alternatives for treating stretch marks. Popular and effective options include chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Like all non-surgical stretch mark treatments, these options are most effective on newer scars and find the treatment that works best for you.
What causes the stretch marks?
Stretch marks, or striae, are a form of skin scarring associated with pregnancy, obesity, puberty, and short-term weight gain from bodybuilding and other physical activities.
They form when the dermis – the middle layer of the skin that maintains shape and elasticity – is stretched more than it can tolerate. Connective fibers in the skin eventually break, disrupting collagen production and causing scarring. This scarring may be treatable only through stretch mark removal.
