Laser Stretch Mark Removal Procedure

Treating Stretch Marks can be a frustrating experience. There is a huge amount of seemingly conflicting information available, online, in beauty magazines, pharmacies and through word of mouth.

No matter what claims are made about so called stretch mark cures, there are no creams or lotions that will cure stretch marks 100% and the primary medical procedure to completely remove stretch marks, stretch mark surgery, is both expensive and potentially risky.

There are however, products and procedures that can help reduce the visible appearance of your stretch marks. Stretch mark creams produce good results for some patients who find their skin becomes healthier and the healing and fading or stretch marks is accelerated.

Everyone’s skin is different however, and there are those who have tried stretch mark cream treatments without experiencing the results they were seeking.

For these women, there is an alternative next step other than surgery – Laser Stretch Mark Removal.


Laser Stretch Mark Treatment

Laser stretch mark removal is a process whereby laser is used to damage the skin in a controlled manner, with the aim of initiating an increased level of skin cell turnover and regeneration. This is a more controlled and gentle procedure than other procedures such as resurfacing chemical peels and dermabrasion.

Laser stretch mark treatment targets the most superficial layers of the skin which stimulates the body to form new fibers in the skin.  Because laser stretch mark treatment effectively causes trauma to the skin, the procedure is followed by a period of healing and recovery. The recovery period for laser stretch mark treatment however is less than traditional resurfacing procedures, with less pain and discomfort.

The laser stretch mark procedure can cause some discomfort, however usual practice is for the patient to have a topical anaesthetic applied to the skin prior to treatment. After treatment there will generally be some tenderness, swelling and redness which gradually subside, usually within a few days.

Laser stretch mark removal is effective in many cases, although the effectiveness of the treatment can depend on the location and age of the stretch marks. For some patients laser stretch mark treatment may be able to completely remove the appearance of stretch marks, whilst more serious cases may only minimise the stretch marks appearance. Overall, laser stretch mark removal has a high rate of customer satisfaction.


Laser Stretch Mark Removal Cost

Laser stretch mark removal costs can vary greatly depending on the severity and location of the stretch marks, however the cost of a single laser procedure is usually around $200.

Because individuals react differently to the same treatment, one person may realize great results after only a couple of treatments, but for others this may be a longer and more costly exercise.
