Stretch marks are caused by abnormal collagen formation when skin is rapidly stretched from sudden growth or rapid weight gain. Various treatment options are available for stretch mark removal, but each option will differ according to a patient’s skin type, skin tone, and their desired results. There is no easy way to remove stretch marks, but their appearance can be improved.
Laser Stretch Mark Removal
The purpose of laser stretch mark removal is to allow the skin to regenerate healthy tissue, including stimulating collagen growth and healthy skin cells.
The best laser depends on the age and location of the stretch marks and your skin color.
The excimer laser procedure removes thin layers of skin around the marks, using high energy ultraviolet light. This disrupts the bonds in skin tissue, causing the tissue to disintegrate. After treatment, new layers of healthy skin will form.
