Before & After Treatment*
Cosmetic lasers are a new method for removal of stretch marks. Unlike traditional treatments like stretch mark creams and gels, lasers are used to stimulate new collagen growth and fill the stretch marks. The laser energy is absorbed in the dermal layer of the skin stimulating the production of new collagen.
Using lasers to remove stretch marks repairs the skin's natural synthesis of collagen. Collagen is a protein rich compound occurring in the body that repairs and rejuvenates skin tissue. Cosmetic laser treatment for stretch marks works to stimulate renewed growth of depleted collagen. It removes damaged skin tissue, seals broken blood vessels and repairs the fibres of the middle skin. This helps to "fill in" the stretch marks
