Laser stretch mark removal for flawlessly clear skin

Posted on 10 May, 2011

Women often suffer from stretch marks due to pregnancy or extreme weight gain/loss. This can spoil an otherwise lovely complexion. It is not easy to remove these stretch marks. The increase in the availability of laser treatment during the last decade has been a blessing for those who seek stretch mark removal.

What does laser stretch mark removal do for the skin?

Ultrasound, laser therapy and microdermabrasion are some of the treatments used by experts for stretch mark removal. Basically, these methods cause exfoliation of the skin and start the process of rejuvenation of the skin. When the laser light is moved over the affected skin area, it boosts skin renewal and collagen secretion. Collagen is a skin protein that enhances skin complexion and makes it smoother and healthier. It also removes the scar tissue of the stretch marks and fills the gaps with new skin.

Are the traditional methods of stretch mark removal better?

Most of the traditional methods involve the application of different creams and gels to get rid of these marks. This process is time-consuming and sometimes fails to work at all. Laser stretch mark removal can show results after just a few sessions and the effects last.
