Anytime the skin has stretched too far or too fast – such as during puberty, pregnancy, or weight loss – these unsightly lines appear. When stretch marks first appear, they’re usually red, pink, or purple fades to white or silver coloration.
The outermost layer of skin contains collagen and elastin fibers that give skin its strength and support. Due to the alterations in collagen and elastin, the dermis weakens, resulting in the appearance of stretch marks.
At Laser Genesis Skin Clinic, we offer Fractional Skin Resurfacing treatment that can help you give the clear, smooth, touchable skin you have been dreaming about. Laser stretch mark treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses pulses of fractional laser light to break down stretch marks and improve the appearance of your skin. In just a few simple treatments, redness can be reduced, and your stretch marks can be smoothed. The fractional laser treatment takes 30 minutes and can deliver superior, long-lasting results.
