REMOVE STRETCH MARKS WITH THE ICON™ AESTHETIC SYSTEM

Are stretch marks affecting your self-confidence? Although they appear from natural causes, like pregnancy or puberty, stretch marks rarely go away on their own. Our Erbium laser treatments are revolutionary because they work with your body’s natural process to revitalize and minimize stretch marks.

HOW DO LASER STRETCH MARK TREATMENTS WORK?

The Erbium platform uses laser beams to reach deep below the surface of the skin and encourage new skin cell production. The immune system responds to the laser treatment, and new skin cells are produced to naturally revitalize stretch marks. Over time as stretch marks are replaced with your own skin cells, they will fade away without causing any painful side effects.

Laser Stretch Mark Reduction FAQs

Is this treatment effective?
While laser stretch mark reduction will not remove your stretch marks entirely, it is considered highly effective for reducing the pigmentation and redness of existing stretch marks. Just as lasers are used for treating melasma, acne scarring, and other areas of hyperpigmentation, it is effective for addressing the scarring brought about by stretch marks as well. Talk with your provider at Bella Mia Medical Aesthetics & Laser Institute with more questions about the efficacy of treatment in your initial consultation.

What risks are associated with laser stretch mark reduction?
As with any medical procedure, there is some risk to be aware of; however, they are low and uncommon with the procedure at hand. Minorly, you may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the site of treatment. As the new skin grows and heals, these symptoms will go away and leave you with a rejuvenated, fresh layer of skin.

How quickly will my stretch marks fade?
For optimal results, you may wish to schedule a number of treatments, all spaced about a month apart. Of course, the number of treatments needed and individual response to treatment will all vary. Over time, you will notice an increase in results as the collagen stimulation from the laser lasts long beyond the scope of treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING LASER STRETCH MARK REMOVAL

Depending on the patient’s skin type, two to three sessions are often recommended to achieve the best results. Laser stretch mark treatments are safe for most skin types. We can achieve the best results, the sooner the stretch marks are treated. Patients may experience some slight discomfort during the laser application, but a topical anesthetic can be provided to make the procedure more tolerable. The side effects typically include some temporary redness and swelling. However, most people will be able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment without experiencing any downtime.
