Stretch marks are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with puberty, weight gain, pregnancy or muscle building. Although skin is usually fairly elastic, when overstretched, the normal production of collagen is disrupted. As a result, scars called stretch marks may form.
The Long-pulsed Laser is effective in reducing the reddish colour of stretch marks effectively and stopping some of the inflammation that causes these marks. In addition, collagen and elastin fibre production are encouraged to make the skin look more natural.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing targets white-coloured stretch marks, which may not experience improvements similar to that of red stretch marks. The appearance of white-coloured stretch marks can be improved moderately.
