Can stretch marks be removed?

Posted on 20 Dec, 2011

Stretch marks can become the bane of some people’s lives. When they are extensive, they can be noticeable and very difficult to hide.

Stretch mark removal creams can provide patchy results or slight improvement, but at The Laser Treatment Clinic, the approach to stretch mark removal uses a combination of treatments.

Microdermabrasion involves removing superficial layers of skin using a pressurised flow of very fine medical grade crystals. This procedure allows the practitioner to remove the skin gently and evenly without damaging the skin tissue’s structure.

This deep exfoliation not only removes old and damaged skin cells, but it also stimulates skin renewal. Laser treatment is then used to stimulate the production of both new skin cells and collagen.

Results are accumulative, although many people notice an improvement in the skin’s texture and appearance following the first sessions. As a non-invasive procedure, microdermabrasion and laser treatment offer a way of removing stretch marks quickly and with a minimal amount of discomfort or healing time.

With these treatments available, there should be no reason for anyone to suffer the embarrassment and self-consciousness often caused by unsightly stretch marks.
