Technology & Procedure
We offer PIXEL™ treatments as they are the fastest way to deal with scars and stretch marks after weight gain, rapid weight loss, or pregnancy. In addition to effectively removing stretch marks, PIXEL™ treatments stimulate collagen production beneath the dermis to create a healthier foundation for the skin. Not only does this treatment remove unwanted stretch marks, but it also rejuvenates the skin. We use PIXEL™ technology by Alma Lasers™ as it is great for providing results in skin rejuvenation and scar removal. This procedure can remove stretch marks by way of resurfacing the skin and removing any damaged skin cells. Frational, non-ablative resurfacing treatments are very safe, and one of the most effective approach at improving the skin’s elasticity, complexion, and eliminating stretch marks.
Before your treatment, we highly recommend booking in for a free consultation so that you have an opportunity to meet our practitioner who will be conducting your treatment. This is a great opportunity to ask any and all questions that you have about our technology, facility, and what to expect during and after your treatment. We will also discuss pricing with you, as pricing can vary depending on the depth and severity of your of your stretch marks and the number of treatments needed to eradicate them.
During your treatment, you will be required to wear protective eye-wear. Your practitioner will put a clear ultrasound gel on the affected area. She will adjust the settings on the PIXEL™ according to the severity of your stretch marks, and begin to slowly glide the laser head over the affected area. You may feel a warming sensation, or a sensation that is similar to a snap of a rubber band. Laser stretch mark treatments can cause slight pain or discomfort as everyone’s pain tolerance level is different. Should you experience any pain or severe discomfort, be sure to tell your practitioner immediately. She can adjust the levels according to your needs. We also offer numbing agents to reduce discomfort.
After your treatment you may experience redness or slight swelling of the area. This is normal and should dissipate within seven. You may notice the stretch marks fading after the first treatment, however we do recommend booking additional treatments as needed to obtain optimal results. We encourage you to book a complimentary follow-up appointment to ensure your satisfaction.
How can Stretch Mark Treatment eliminate stretch marks?
PIXEL™ treatments are fractional, non-ablative skin resurfacing treatments that can remove or reduce scars, including stretch marks. Clients will notice gradual improvements as the laser stimulates collagen production, in turn, smoothing out and tightening the skin. Most often, clients notice that the texture of their skin improves gradually over the course of three to eight treatments, depending on the severity of the stretch marks. On average, PIXEL™ treatments reduce the appearance of stretch marks by 50% to 80%.
