What is the process for laser stretch mark treatment?
As there are several different stretch mark removal processes, lasers improve the texture of the skin. Using PIXEL technology by Alma Laser, your medical professional heats the skin. The laser energy’s purpose is to damage the cells beneath the targeted area. This damage “kickstarts” collagen and elastin production during the skin’s recovery phase. Collagen and elastin create a smoother and healthier skin surface. Generally, no anesthetic is needed for a skin laser treatment. You may experience some tingling. Some people have reported that they experience a sensation like a rubber band being snapped against the skin.
Do I make a good candidate for laser stretch mark treatment?
In most cases, if you have stretch marks on areas of your body, and you wish to diminish the look of them, then you are a good candidate for the treatment. Other indicators that make you a good candidate for laser stretch mark treatment include:
- You have a fair complexion and light pigmentation
- Your stretch marks are shallow
- You want a non-surgical treatment
If you have a darker complexion or a history of skin pigmentation disorders, a laser “spot test” can be given to see how your skin reacts to laser treatments before larger areas of skin are treated.
What is the recovery like?
Right after a laser treatment for stretch mark removal, the treated areas may feel sore. Some redness may develop. The level of these symptoms can be compared to sunburn and should go away within two to three days. Most people resume normal activities right away.
If you are still not satisfied with the reasons listed above if you are a good candidate for laser stretch mark treatment, then we encourage you to schedule a risk-free consultation with a medical professional at LightTouch Med Spa today.
