Laser Hair Removal Skin Care

Let’s Talk Stretchmarks…

What are they and what exactly can we do about them?

They’re often a result of the skin stretching rapidly, which can happen during puberty, pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss, or even certain medical conditions.

While they’re incredibly common and natural, many people feel self-conscious about them. There are various treatments and products marketed to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, though their effectiveness can vary widely. Some people embrace their stretch marks as a part of their body’s story, while others may seek ways to minimise their visibility for personal reasons.

What sets these cheeky little lines apart, is their appearance, often standing out due to differences in colour and texture compared to the surrounding skin. They can range from pink to white, sometimes accompanied by thinner skin in the affected area.

Thankfully, advances in cosmetic laser treatments offer effective solutions to address both the colour & texture of stretch marks. We can tailor laser treatment plans to target specific concerns, whether it’s reducing the pink hue or improving skin texture. Common treatment areas include the upper arms, chest, abdomen, love handles, and thighs.

By promoting collagen remodeling and skin regrowth, these lasers can gradually blend stretch marks into the surrounding skin after 4 to 6 treatments.

While complete elimination of stretch marks may be challenging, these advanced laser procedures offer some really substantial improvements, restoring confidence and comfort in one’s skin.
