There IS A Way To Get Rid OF Stretch Marks
While they’re more often a problem for women, men can also get stretch marks and they can sometimes have a profound effect on someone's self esteem.
Stretch marks happen when skin is stretched too far over a very short period of time, leaving quite prominent lines on the surface of the skin. This can happen during puberty, a period of rapid weight gain or loss, pregnancy, or during a growth spurt. Even if they occur at a happy time in your life such as the birth of a new baby or reaching a new weight goal.
Laser removal treatments can now be used to get rid of stretch marks. Using fractional laser technology, short pulses of laser energy are delivered to the skin – specifically targeting the stretch mark. The laser stimulates the production of new collagen to smooth out the skin and improve discolouration. Finally, a treatment is given that will give you the smooth, clear skin you used to have and deserve to get back!
Laser stretch mark treatment is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that can improve the appearance of your skin in just a few easy treatments. In just a short time redness can be reduced, stretch marks smoothed out, and your skin will be ready to bare once more!
Usually you’ll need only a few treatments – somewhere between three and five – before you start seeing seriously smooth results, plus an improvement in the consistency of the area being treated. Each individual treatment is fast too; it usually takes around 30 minutes for a session. Most patients also require no downtime at all and can go straight on with their day as soon as they leave the clinic. With superior, long-lasting results on all skin types and all stretch marks, no matter what the cause, it’s the best possible way to get your confidence back.
The innovative technology used in stretch mark laser removal treatment has been brought about by a lot of clinical research from professionals and experts all over the world. One of only a few clinics in the UK able to offer this treatment is Pulse Light Clinic, and they're able to provide their clients with incredible stretch mark removal alongside their other world-class treatments.
What Does Stretch Mark Removal Involve?During a session of laser for stretch marks, a beam of laser light is used to break down the scarring and stimulate the production of new collagen, smoothing the appearance of the skin and reducing discolouration. This leads to a marked fading in the appearance of the stretch mark that will continue to improve with further sessions.
Laser for stretch marks is a highly effective procedure. If your stretch marks are older or particularly severe, they may be more difficult to treat and you may need more sessions.
It may take as many as 10 treatments to remove these stubborn stretch marks, however most people will need as few as 3-5. If your stretch marks are particularly serious, they may only fade and not be removed completely. Unlike tummy tuck stretch mark surgery it's non-invasive and low risk.
After a treatment you may experience some redness and, occasionally, blistering. Redness should fade within a few hours and if you’re blistered this should also heal within a week or two.
Of course stretch marks do not cause a problem to everyone but in certain cases and certain places they can become quite unsightly and cause you to want to cover up and not feel totally comfortable in your own skin. This can lead to a loss of confidence or even anxiety. You no longer have to live with them as Laser treatment can successfully remove them!
