After months of sticking to a strict diet and workout regime, it can be a great feeling to know you have reached your goal of losing weight. You look and feel better, you have heaps more confidence and you can wear all those skimpy clothes you’ve had your eye on.
For many people who have lost weight, however, this great feeling lasts until they notice they have stretch marks as a result of their weight loss.
Stretch marks are caused when we lose or gain weight rapidly, either through dieting, overindulging or due to pregnancy. They form when the small connective fibres break in the middle layer of skin – the dermis – which is why lotions and creams are ineffective at getting rid of them.
Noticing you have stretch marks can knock your self-esteem all over again, but you shouldn’t let it spoil your fantastic achievement. A simple visit to a specialist laser treatment clinic will do the trick, as you will be able to sign up for a course of treatment that will drastically diminish the appearance of your stretch marks.
Laser stretch mark removal treatment works using three procedures – microdermabrasion, laser therapy and ultrasound treatment. Combining these methods eradicates stretch marks and encourages skin renewal, giving you smooth, fresh, youthful skin and importantly, your self-confidence back.
