The worst nightmare for women is having visible stretch marks on their body. These pink stripes like scars are also called striae gravidarum. Stretch marks affect women during their pregnancy or even puberty. In some cases, it can be due to weight gain on different parts of the body.

Stretch marks usually occur on parts of the body such as the thighs, hips, breasts, stomach and arms. Many wish they did not have these embarrassing marks, and so search for a treatment to have them removed.
When the stretch marks first start appearing on your skin, they come in the form of deep red or maroon colour stripes, and with time they start fading and turning into white scars. It is at this point of time that they are very difficult to get rid of. The most appropriate time to get them treated is when they are in the initial stages of pink and red stripes. Fresh stretch marks treated with laser treatment can show about 20 to 50 per cent improvement quickly.

Laser stretch mark removal can take more than a single session to work. These treatments last from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the kind of stretch mark that needs to be treated. Laser stretch mark removal can really work and the results are worth the time and money invested.
