Laser stretch mark removal – a safe and effective way of getting rid of stretch marks

Posted on 13 Dec, 2010

Stretch marks are a type of scarring that appears on the skin with an off-colour hue. It is mostly caused due to the tearing of the dermis. These stretch marks are a result of the rapid stretching of the skin due to weight gain, muscle building, pregnancy or rapid gain of fat. Stretch marks can also be influenced by hormonal changes during puberty.

Many people who have developed stretch marks often look for ways to get rid of them. While there are several stretch mark lotions and creams available over the counter, many people fail to get the expected results. This is when the laser stretch mark removal procedure comes into the picture.

The laser stretch mark removal treatment is the safest, easiest and the most affordable way to fade and gradually eliminate the stretch marks and only takes a few treatment sessions. This procedure not only eliminates stretch marks but also makes the skin look healthy.

The laser stretch mark removal procedure

The laser stretch mark removal procedure uses laser light to breakdown the skin tissues. As the cells become damaged, the cell regeneration process begins. This allows skin cells to grow back stronger and healthier. The treatment procedure may take up to an hour, depending on the type of laser used and the number of areas treated.

Soon after the treatment procedure is completed, the skin may look slightly bruised and red. Although scarring can still be seen during the healing process, once the cells are re-grown you will have a clear, smooth and resilient skin surface devoid of those ugly looking stretch marks.
