Stretch Mark Removal
Stretch marks, or striae, are a form of skin scarring associated with pregnancy, obesity, puberty, and short-term weight gain from bodybuilding and other physical activities. They form when the dermis – the middle layer of the skin that maintains shape and elasticity – is stretched more than it can tolerate. Connective fibers in the skin eventually break, disrupting collagen production and causing scarring.
Stretch marks can affect any area of the body in which the skin is subject to rapid stretching. The abdomen is the area most often affected by stretch marks, but they are also common around the thighs, hips, buttocks, lower back, arms, and chest. Skin in all these areas is subject to high stress as a result of heavy use and rapid expansion. Theoretically, any area of the body could be vulnerable to stretch marks if the skin is stretched enough as a result of tissue expansion.
During a LASER STRETCH MARK REMOVAL procedure, a beam of light removes thin layers of skin around the stretch marks. The laser is uniquely effective for this procedure,disrupt the molecular bonds in the skin tissue, which causes the tissue to disintegrate in a process known as ablation. Once LASER STRETCH MARK REMOVAL is completed, the treated area will heal quickly, and new layers of healthy skin will form. Stretch marks will have disappeared, and a renewed, healthy appearance will result.
Immediately following laser stretch mark removal, the affected area will be red and tender. This is because layers of scarred skin have been removed and new skin is being grown.
Patients who have undergone this procedure are simply amazed about how efficient the entire process can be. Because this procedure is so convenient, your visit can take less than an hour. The main advantage of this laser treatment is that it is non-invasive, no down time, less recovery time, and is extremely safe.
