How to improve stretch marks? In laser stretch mark treatment, concentrated rays of light are directed at the stretch marks, stimulating new growth and smoothing the scars. Laser treatments are considered skin resurfacing treatments, helping your skin to heal and create a smoother texture.

Stretch marks most commonly occur as a result of pregnancy due to stretching of the dermis resulting in breaking of the connective fibers, microscopic bleeding and tissue inflammation. Healing occurs with scar formation.

They often start off as reddish or purplish in colour, before becoming streaked in silver or white. They are notoriously difficult to treat and combination of different treatments are implemented.

Options includes :

  1. Microneedling and radiofrequency- By heating the skin, radiofrequency helps collagen regain its original structure, and causes the proliferation of the fibroblasts
  1. Air dissecting and hyaluronic acid injections – Softens and flattens the stretch marks whilst stimulation the skin deep down to increase the collagen production thus enhancing the skin toning and elasticity.
  1. Fractionated CO2 – The skin is tightened, firmer and smoother, the red color of recent stretch marks disappear, swelling on the outer edges of stretch marks is reduced, and the stretch marks are filled and smoothed.

The cells regenerate through a series of these treatments and the skin regains its tonicity and the stretch marks gradually fade.
