Laser treatment for Scars and Stretch Marks
While it can’t get rid of stretch marks completely, laser removal may help make stretch marks smoother, thereby reducing their appearance. Two types of lasers are used for skin resurfacing treatment: ablative and non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers improve stretch marks by controlled damage the upper layer of skin, which then helps induce collagen and improve the overall appearance.
The most common side effect with this treatment is skin irritation. This can include redness, swelling, and blistering in the treatment area. These side effects are usually mild and resolve on their own (usually within a few days).
You will need 3-5 treatment sessions to achieve desired results, although some patients may require fewer or more treatments. During your treatment, we will apply a cooling gel to the treatment area to help protect your skin and ensure your comfort while the laser is being used
