Stretch marks are long, thin lines on the skin that occur when the skin stretches too quickly. They are extremely common and often occur during periods of rapid growth, weight gain, or weight loss, especially during puberty or pregnancy.
While anybody can get stretch marks, they tend to affect women more than men, particularly around the:
Though common, deep and highly visible stretch marks can be detrimental to a person’s confidence and self-esteem.
Fractional stretch mark reduction is a noninvasive treatment that significantly minimizes the appearance of stretch marks. A non-surgical procedure, fractional stretch mark reduction uses pulses of fractional laser light to disrupt the molecular bonds of tissue affected by stretch marks. This helps stimulate new tissue growth for a tighter, smoother appearance.
Allure Medical invests in safe, effective laser technology to reduce stretch marks. The practice uses Laser Genesis to break down stretch marks and improve the overall appearance of your skin.
During your treatment, a specialized beam of light radiates onto a targeted area of your skin to break down your stretch marks and stimulate new tissue growth. This quick, non-surgical treatment creates thousands of tiny microtears in your skin to activate your body’s natural healing response.
As your skin repairs the microscopic damage, it creates new tissue growth. This new tissue is smoother than your old tissue, so it removes your stretch marks and replaces them with younger-looking skin.
At the same time, fractional stretch mark reduction stimulates collagen production, which tightens skin for a more elastic appearance.
A single fractional stretch mark reduction treatment at Allure Medical only takes about 20 to 30 minutes and requires little to no downtime, so you can return to your regular activities almost immediately after your session.
How many treatments you need depends on several factors, including your age and skin type. However, most people need at least three treatments to eliminate their stretch marks.
With proper skin care, your results can last for a lifetime. The best way to maintain your results is to follow a healthy diet, skin care, and exercise routine to keep your skin tight.
