Say goodbye to stretch marks using laser stretch mark removal treatment

Posted on 08 Dec, 2010

Stretch marks are a common problem for many individuals. Stretch marks happen as a result of sudden enlargement of the skin tissues over a short period of time. This could be either due to pregnancy or sudden weight loss or gain due to strenuous exercise. There are many creams and lotions in the market but they are not completely effective.

Laser stretch mark removal

Laser stretch mark removal is an effective procedure to cure stretch marks. The procedure works in a simple but unique way. The laser surgeon uses a laser device which sends highly focussed and intense rays of UV light. These focussed laser beams are directed on the affected area of the skin. These rays of laser light affect the skin surrounding the stretch marks.

The lasers used for laser stretch mark removal are specially designed to treat stretch marks. Lasers used for laser stretch mark removal break the molecular bonds in the affected skin tissue. As the bonds break, it results in further disintegration of the tissue; this process is known as ablation. Once the treatment is complete, new skin tissue starts growing swiftly and new layers of skin start to be formed. The marks disappear and new elastic skin is formed.

Cost effective and result-oriented

Many people are worried that the laser stretch mark removal treatment will cost a lot of money. However, with advanced technology, the treatment has become cost-effective and comes with assured results. The number of sessions required will depend on the pervasiveness and the age of the marks. If the marks have been there for a long time, then many sessions will be required. If the marks have been newly formed, then two to six sessions is all that is required.
