Stretch Mark Treatment

Laser used – Fraxel Dual

What it does – Stimulates collagen production under stretch marks, causing them to rise and be level with and more similar in color to the surrounding skin.

How it works – Stretch marks form when the skin is stretched beyond its normal capacity which weakens and breaks the normally resilient collagen fibers. Once this takes place, the skin isn't able to bounce back as before, resulting in stretch marks. The Fraxel laser works by penetrating the skin deeply enough to stimulate the production of new collagen under the stretch marks which tightens them and allows them to blend in with the surrounding skin.

Why it's better – Fraxel achieves the amazing results seen with ablative techniques without removing the whole skin surface which can cause scarring, infection and require many weeks of recovery. This is possible because Fraxel leaves bridges of skin intact which speed the healing process.

How to prepare – Arrive 60 minutes before treatment with the intended treatment area clean and ready to have a topical anesthetic applied.

How it will feel – Patients can experience heat or a prickling sensation. Pain is limited by a powerful topical anesthetic and the Fraxel's special cooling system which blows cold air across the skin during treatment.

Procedure time – Up to 30 minutes depending on extent of area treated.

Recovery time – 3 days of peeling and swelling, 2 days of which you may not want the treated area to be seen by the public.

Treatments Necessary – Four treatments performed at 4 week intervals are usually necessary to treat stretch marks. More recent stretch marks respond better than do older stretch marks.

Procedure results – After the first treatment, the skin becomes more uniform and this increases with each subsequent treatment. This improvement will continue for up to 6 months after the final treatment as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal and produce collagen.

Enhancing results – If the stretch mark is red, the Vbeam Perfecta laser can be used in conjunction with Fraxel to eliminate the redness.

Treatment cost – $600 for 1 session; $2300 for a package of 4 sessions.
