Stretch marks are long lines that most often appear on your belly, flanks and thighs but that can also show up on your breasts and hips due to changes in weight. While they are most frequently associated with pregnancy weight gain and the pronounced skin stretching that occurs during this time, stretch marks can occur any time that the skin is stretched, including when you gain weight over a more prolonged period of time. If you are ready to take charge of your stretch marks and your looks in general, you can turn to our practice in Dallas, which is the destination for laser stretch mark removal.
What Is Laser Stretch Mark Removal?
Laser treatments used for stretch mark removal are non-invasive and slowly change the tone and texture of the skin without the need for any surgery or incisions. The entire treatment is done on the surface of the skin, and all you may feel is some heat and possibly a tingling sensation. At our clinic in Dallas, we use the Icon™ laser, which is a non-ablative, or fractional, laser. This means that the laser beams treat only small portions of the skin. This allows for great results without a lengthy recovery. After tiny areas of injury are made in your skin, your body will rush to heal the area, producing healthier skin cells.
What Are the Results?
When we use the Icon™ laser system on your stretch marks, you will gradually see the purple or silver color of your stretch marks fading away and healthy, beautiful skin taking its place. Also, the tone and texture of the skin will feel different. It will seem healthy and firm. All of this can be done without damaging any surrounding tissues or any tissues beneath the surface of the skin. We can perform laser stretch mark removal on almost all types and colors of skin.
What Is the Procedure Like?
Because the Icon™ laser for stretch mark treatments is non-ablative, it is fast and generally comfortable. Although you may see some changes on your skin immediately, such as redness, any side effects are temporary and should not keep you from your usual tasks. Therefore, this is a smart choice if you have a busy schedule.
