Stretch mark removal treatment with the help of laser technology

Posted on 28 Jan, 2011

Stretch marks are basically marks on the skin of a different hue. They can occur at any point in your life.

Individuals who gain or lose a lot of weight can suffer from stretch marks. In such conditions the skin stretches to accommodate the change, leaving stretch marks. However, the solution is laser stretch mark removal.

While some strongly recommend the use of creams, it can take longer to treat. At times the stretching of the skin occurs in a much deeper layer for the cream to be effective. In such cases, laser stretch mark removal treatments have proven to be the best way to get rid of marks.

How to stretch mark removal treatment works

The stretch mark removal treatment is generally tailored to suit different needs. The time required to treat depends on how big the stretch mark is and how deep it is. But with a few sessions spaced 1-2 weeks apart, the skin texture improves and changes in appearance, leaving no visible signs.

The actual procedure is broken down into two parts. In the first part, a simple handheld device is used which directs abrasive crystals over the affected area, after which laser beams are used to correct it. The entire process hurts no more than getting a scratch. But since it affects the inner layers of skin, it might bleed a little or scab for a few days. But with time, your skin will become flawless.
