Stretch marks are challenging. While there is no technology that can totally remove them, their appearance can definitely be improved making them visibly less noticeable.

Depending on the color of the skin being treated, we can use one or a combination of lasers to achieve the best results.

Our fractional co2 laser has been used successfully to reduce stretch marks on the body, including the breasts, hips, and thighs.

Our Affirm laser can also be used to help rebuild the collagen and elastic structure around the marks, which smoothes out the texture of the stretch marks improving the overall appearance of the skin.

When you meet with our laser specialist for your consultation, we’ll address any concerns you may have. Individual results may vary.

You can expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and in the amount of hair present. In addition, you may also see a decrease in stubble, rashes and ingrown hairs! Laser stretch mark treatment requires a commitment to a series of treatments to see results. Actual results can take up to 3-5 months to develop.

Stretch marks, or striae, are a form of skin scarring that typically appears as bands of parallel lines on your skin. Their texture and color is different than your normal skin. Newer stretch marks tend to be red or purple in color while more mature stretch marks being a silvery white color. They most commonly occur during puberty, pregnancy, significant weight fluctuations, or anything that rapidly overextends the connective tissues under your skin.

Stretch marks 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.

They definitely go out of their way to explain all the procedures and skincare clearly, answering all your questions and making sure you are comfortable. They even do complimentary consultations to make sure the treatments recommended are the best suited for your skincare concerns. The facility is spotless and beautiful and parking was so easy. They have all the latest treatments and skincare at great value. They even won awards for their services. I cannot recommend them enough!” *
