Who is a Candidate for Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks occur when the middle layer of skin, called the dermis, is stretched beyond capacity. Stretch marks frequently occur during pregnancy, and also result from significant weight loss and gain cycles; growth spurts during puberty; as a result of bodybuilding; and/or among those who use oral or topical steroids. Females and those with lighter skin are more likely to have stretch marks than are men or individuals with darker complexions.
What to Expect
You’re probably wondering whether laser treatments hurt. While you might feel some mild discomfort, there really shouldn’t be any serious pain.
When it comes to recovery from laser stretch mark removal, it’s better than traditional surgical methods (you may get some redness and swelling for a few days). You can head to your appointment knowing you can go right back to whatever you were doing beforehand. You’ll need more than one treatment and the results can vary from patient to patient, but you can rest easy knowing you’re being proactive about your body and doing something to minimize your stretch marks and look better no matter what you’re wearing — or how much skin you’re baring.
