What is it?
Stretch marks are produced as a result of rapid growth or distention of the skin in a short time and cause the elastic fibers to break. In general, any part of the body can be affected except the face. Even so, they usually appear on the belly, buttocks, hips, thighs and breasts.
In the initial phase of the stretch marks are pink and it’s possible to make them disappear by the application of laser therapy. When, on the other hand, they reach maturity and they are white, they can achieve a progressive improvement of their appearance, but not eliminate them completely. It’s for this reason that we always recommend starting the treatment as soon as possible to get the best results.
The treatment of choice is the combination of the non-ablative fractionated laser together with the fractionated ablative laser, which allows repairing the affected skin in a few sessions.
- Non-ablative fractionated laser: acts at the level of the dermis respecting the surface of the skin, avoiding burns and possible scabs. Its function is to warm the dermis, activate the manufacturers’ cells of the new tissue and progressively repair the stretch mark. Ablative fractionated laser: is a complement to the non-ablative laser, especially when the stretch mark are very deep and require more energy to be able to alleviate them.
In general, between six and eight sessions are required to treat or permanently remove stretch marks from each zone.
