People seek skin laser treatments to help correct a wide variety of cosmetic skin issues. From wrinkles to sun damage, advancement in the field of skin lasers has enabled plastic surgeons and aestheticians to provide unbeatable treatment in the correction and improvements of countless skin irregularities. Aside from wrinkles, one of the most common complaints among women about their skin is the appearance of stretch marks.
From pregnancy to yo-yo dieting and/or weight loss in general, stretch marks are an unavoidable reality for many women. Men can also acquire stretch marks from bodybuilding, or gaining or losing a significant amount of weight in a short period of time. Luckily, today’s technology provides an unrivaled resource for the improvement and/or correction of stretch marks.
When stretch marks first appear, they are typically red or purplish in color. At this stage, the stretch marks respond much better to laser treatment. As time progresses and stretch marks begin to “heal,” they begin to turn white, and it becomes more challenging to reduce their appearance, although you can still achieve great results with laser skin treatments. Stretch marks can be red or white and vary in terms of depth. Much of this is determined by genetics.
New laser technology stimulates collagen production, which can reduce or eliminate the appearance of stretch marks. Arguably the best type of skin laser treatment to use for stretch marks – particularly the difficult to remove white, textured stretch marks – is Fraxel Laser treatment. Fraxel skin laser produces thousands of deep, tiny columns in your skin, and intensively treats old epidermal pigment cells without affecting the surrounding tissue.
