What Are Stretch Marks?
Stretch Marks are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth or rapid weight changes. Stretch marks may also be influenced by hormonal changes such as puberty or pregnancy. Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body and can make an individual uncomfortable with their body image.
How Can Stretch Marks Be Treated?
Until now there have been many so called remedies for stretch marks with less than satisfactory results. Laser stretch mark treatments are now available for any skin type.
The fractional laser treatments are done in a series of 4 to 6 treatments depending on the severity and are spaced 4 weeks apart. These treatments breakdown the stretch mark while encouraging new collagen formation. By doing so, the skin is smoother and the appearance of the stretch marks is diminished with minimal discomfort.
