Stretch marks are known to be one of the hardest to treat dermatologically. The appearance of stretch marks may vary depending on cases of pregnancy, weight gain, and hormonal changes. The best option to remove unwanted stretch marks is this non-surgical treatment with no downtime.
It works by using fractional laser light to break down stretch marks and naturally trigger healthy, new tissue growth, including collagen.
You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.
Laser Stretch Mark Removals take about thirty minutes or less, and you typically resume your normal activities immediately following the session.
|Service Time||15 - 30 min|
|Sessions Required||3 - 5+|
This fractional technology delivers pulses of laser light into the skin to target and break down stretch marks. This will help generate healthy new tissue to form in its place that is smoother and more even in skin tone.
The benefits of laser Stretch Mark Removal are clear...

Only laser technology FDA-cleared to treat stretch marks
Expect to see an improvement in both the tone and texture of your stretch marks.
The treatment can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Typically you may resume your daily activities immediately following the treatment session.
Most people need four to eight treatment sessions for desired results.
You may experience a temporary redness and swelling of the stretch marks which could last a few days. Speak with your provider to discuss other possible side-effects and the necessary post-treatment care.
Depending on the size of the area being treated, sessions typically take less than 30 minutes. First, you will be provided eye shields to protect yourself from the laser during treatment. The treatment will begin with the provider guiding the Icon™ handpiece over the treatment area. During this, the laser will be delivering energy into your skin. Depending on the care option we select, you may feel nothing during treatment or mild discomfort. Post treatment instructions will be provided to manage pain if necessary. You may also experience some redness and/or swelling a few days after at the treatment site but this typically resolves by the third day. Follow up treatment sessions should be scheduled 3-6 weeks apart if needed.
If you are a laser Stretch Mark Removal patient, please be aware of the following:
-Remove all make-up and lotions prior to the treatment.
-At least 4 weeks prior to your appointment, discontinue unprotected sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams on the areas receiving treatment.
