Stretch marks come as a package deal with either rapid weight gain or weight loss. They are difficult to remove, as most of the commonly available treatments of the shelf are ineffective. Some of the creams and lotions provide treatment up to a certain extent, but beyond a point, they fail to make a significant difference. However, stretch marks are completely curable by way of laser treatment.

What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks are formed by excessive stretching of the dermis, which is the middle layer of skin. The connective fibres split which results in the interruption of collagen creation which ultimately results in scars. This usually happens when weight is gained rapidly. Stretch marks appear as pink or somewhat purple streaks on those parts of the body which are prone to weight gains, such as the thighs, hips, the tummy and the underarms.

The cure

Laser stretch marks removal is the only treatment option which is completely effective against stretch marks. The cost of laser stretch mark removal has been substantially reduced over the last few years and the procedure is now trouble-free. Laser stretch marks removal has advantages over conventional plastic surgery. A high-intensity ultraviolet laser is used to disintegrate the thinner layers of the skin around the stretch marks which wipes out the scar tissue; the space left is then replaced by fresh new skin.
