Using Laser to Treat Stretchmarks
Stretch marks are typically associated with the after effects of pregnancy, however, they are far more common than most people realize. They can happen to men as well as women and at virtually any age. They typically occur when an area of skin has been stretched excessively in a very short period of time before being reduced back to its normal size. There are many common ways people use to try and reduce their appearance, including lotions and creams. However, these methods are generally not very effective. Is there a way to successfully reduce the appearance of stretch marks? Dr. Sonny O is now using Laser to treat stretchmarks with exceptional results.
How Does Laser Treat Stretchmarks?
Laser treatment is a very gentle non-invasive procedure that uses carefully targeted pulses of high energy light to treat the broken and dilated blood vessels responsible for stretch marks. The procedure does so without the risk of damaging nearby healthy tissue. At the same time, the Laser’s energy stimulates the healthy skin cells located under the stretchmarks causing the development of new collagen. Over time this results in slow improvement in the color, texture, and irregularity of the stretchmarks. The goal of the Laser treatment for stretch marks is not to completely eliminated them, but to reduce their appearance to a more acceptable appearance.
