The Revolutionary Way to Reduce Unwanted Stretch Marks
It’s swimsuit season again, and looking good and feeling confident are goals we all have. Sometimes, exercise and eating right are not enough, especially if stretch mark reduction is one of the items on your bikini-body check-list.
If you’ve been down the cosmetic counter, you may have noticed creams and lotions promising to reduce unsightly stretch marks. The truth is, for noticeable and lasting results, laser procedures can offer the most benefits.
What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched, either through weight gain or pregnancy. Most women notice these unwelcome marks on the stomach, breast region, buttocks or thighs, though marks may also appear on the arms. These marks may appear in hues ranging from light pink to deep red, depending on your skin tone.
- Corticosteroid creams or pills and other steroidal medications
- A genetic predisposition
- Excessive weight
- Rapid weight loss or gain
A look at laser therapy.
The fractional CO2 pixel laser is often used to improve the appearance of stretch marks. The laser light helps boost the skin’s collagen and elastin levels, making stretch marks appear less noticeable. This type of laser can be effective for all types of stretch marks and has many benefits, including:
- No downtime required
- Pain-free treatments
- No need to take time off work
- Only one treatment per month for 90 days is typical
- Can be done on your lunch hour
Who is a good candidate?
While anyone can undergo laser stretch mark reduction, more recent stretch marks can be more effectively treated. If swimsuit season has snuck up on you and you’d like to get rid of unwanted stretch marks and feel more confident at the beach, ask about laser stretch mark reduction to see if it is right for you.
