Laser Stretch Mark Reduction San Diego
Stretch marks are often associated with pregnancy, but they can also appear when the skin is stretched rapidly because of fluctuating weight. Though many skin care products guarantee to keep stretch marks from appearing, they often do not succeed. Icon™ Aesthetic System laser treatments use powerful laser energy to heal your stretch marks from the inside out.
How Do Laser Stretch Mark Treatments Work?
Unlike lotions and creams, the Icon’s fractional laser light beams reach deep below the surface of the skin to target stretch marks. The laser energy stimulates natural skin cell production. As new tissues develop below the surface of the skin, stretch marks are filled in and disappear without damaging the surrounding skin. Icon laser stretch mark removal treatments are safe for all skin types, including patients with very light and dark skin.
What to Expect During Laser Stretch Mark Removal
Depending on your skin type, several Palomar laser stretch mark removal sessions may be needed to achieve the best results. Treatments last about 30 minutes and are not considered painful as cooling anesthetic can be provided. Laser stretch mark removal treatments have few side effects, including some temporary redness and swelling. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.
