Stretch Mark Removal Vaughan
There are two prominent laser technologies available to those wishing to reduce and remove wrinkles, sunspots, scars, stretch marks and other unsightly skin issues. Stretch mark removal in Vaughan is available at LightTouch Med Spa at all of our locations in Oakville, Mississauga, and Waterloo. Laser skin resurfacing removes micro particles of skin, forcing your own skin to reproduce new skin to re-heal this area with fresh, pink, healthy skin tissue. If you are considering this treatment for yourself to diminish the appearance of stretch marks, then we encourage you to continue reading the article.
Ablative Laser Resurfacing:
The term ablative derives from ‘ablation,’ the act of destroying material with erosion. In the case of ablative lasers, the material is a micro-layer of skin and high temperature lasers create the erosive energy. As the technician operates the ablative laser, more and more layers of skin are removed until the desired appearance is achieved.
Non-Ablative Laser Resurfacing:
As the name implies, non-ablative lasers are simply the opposite of their harsher counterparts. Rather than destroy skin for regrowth, LightTouch Med Spa’s gentle laser therapy breaks down the bonds in problem areas over several sessions. Non-ablative lasers also encourage elastin and collagen production in the body, which is another benefit of the treatment. These building blocks help return the treated skin to its smooth, soft and springy self.
How does stretch mark removal in Vaughan work?
Laser stretch mark treatment uses short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the aging support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin, the crucial building blocks of smooth skin. The new collagen can leave the stretch mark smoother in texture and reduce the appearance of the stretch mark on the skin by improving the color.
Are there any side effects?
Typical side effects of stretch mark removal in Vaughan include temporary redness, as well as itching and swelling at the treatment site, which typically lasts a few days. Other possible side effects include blistering, bruising, prolonged redness, lightening or darkening of skin color, scarring, and removal or lightening of freckles. There is a rare risk of infection.
