Women all across the world are bothered by stretch marks, and these marks often make them feel self-conscious and embarrassed. While stretch marks won’t go away on their own, it is possible to significantly fade stretch marks with laser treatments.When combined with UVphototherapy, lasers can be a potent option to considerably reduce stretch marks.
Causes of stretch marks
Stretch marks or striae are actually scars that form on the dermal layer of the skin, as a result of rapid skin growth that often occurs during pregnancy and puberty.Hormonal imbalance typically accompanies these changes, and this triggers damage to the middle layer of the skin (dermis).
When the skin stretches excessively and gets taut it can break, resulting in the formation of stretch marks. Newly formed stretch marks are usually red or purple in color. When they are older they become grayish in color.
How lasers fade Stretch marks
There are a variety of topical creams that have traditionally been used to treat stretch marks, but these are often ineffective. That’s why the ability to fade stretch marks with laser treatments is such a welcome alternative.
At the Sona Med Spa in Little Rock (Click here) and Memphis,they use an integrative approach to treat stretch marks. This involves a combination of Advanced Fluorescent Technology (AFT), Pixel laser treatment, and microdermabrasion.
• Microdermabrasion exfoliates dead and damaged skin cells, to reveal skin that is clearer and fresher.
• AFT treat shypopigmented areas of the skin, and improves skin tone.
• Pixel treatments smooth and tighten the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin. These proteins enhance the structure of the skin, making it stronger and tighter.
