Laser Stretch Mark Removal

Stretch Mark Removal

Laser stretch mark removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a fractional laser to reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the skin. These marks often result from rapid skin stretching, such as during pregnancy or weight gain. By delivering high-energy light deep into the skin, the procedure stimulates collagen production, improving the texture and appearance of stretch marks. 

While it may not completely eliminate them, laser treatment can significantly reduce their visibility. In some cases, it may be combined with microdermabrasion and microneedling for enhanced results.

What Can I Expect During A Laser Stretch Mark Removal Treatment?

Consultation: Before your laser stretch mark removal treatment, you’ll have a consultation with our skincare specialists. During this discussion, we’ll assess your skin, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine the most suitable laser treatment for your needs.

Skin Preparation: Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly to remove any makeup, dirt, and oils. This ensures a clean surface for the laser treatment and helps optimize results.

Application of Topical Anesthetic: Depending on the type of laser used and your pain tolerance, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the treatment area. This helps minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

Laser Treatment: Once your skin is prepped and numb, the laser device will be applied to the stretch mark area. The laser emits high-energy light that targets and breaks down the pigment in the stretch marks, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin regeneration.

Sensation: During the laser treatment, you may experience a sensation of warmth or mild discomfort, similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. However, the topical anesthetic helps minimize any discomfort, and the procedure is generally well-tolerated.

Treatment Duration: The duration of the laser stretch mark removal session will depend on the size and severity of the stretch marks being treated. Our skincare specialists will ensure that you receive a thorough and effective treatment.

Post-Treatment Care: After laser stretch mark removal, your skin may appear red or swollen, similar to a mild sunburn. You’ll be provided with post-treatment instructions, including skincare products to use and activities to avoid to promote optimal healing and results.

How To Prepare For A Laser Stretch Mark Removal Treatment?

Avoid Sun Exposure: Limit your sun exposure and avoid tanning beds for at least a week before your laser stretch mark removal treatment. Sunburned or tanned skin can be more sensitive during the treatment and may increase the risk of complications.

Discontinue Certain Skincare Products: Stop using any photosensitizing skincare products, such as retinoids or exfoliating acids, for a few days leading up to your laser treatment. These products can make your skin more sensitive to the laser and increase the risk of adverse reactions.

Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your laser stretch mark removal appointment to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Hydrated skin may respond better to the laser treatment and heal more quickly afterward.

Shave Treatment Area: If the stretch marks are in a hairy area, consider shaving the treatment area before your appointment. This ensures that the laser can penetrate the skin effectively and target the stretch marks without interference from hair.

Inform Your Specialist: Be sure to inform your skincare specialist about any medications you’re taking, including prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, and supplements. Some medications can affect how your skin responds to laser treatment, so it’s important to disclose this information before your session.

Arrive with Clean Skin: On the day of your laser stretch mark removal appointment, cleanse the treatment area thoroughly to remove any makeup, dirt, and oils. This ensures a clean surface for the laser treatment and helps optimize results.
