The options include:
IPL and Fractionated Laser Resurfacing
IPL and laser resurfacing are an effective treatments for a range of skin conditions and have been proven effective in reducing the appearance of unsightly stretch marks. When performing these procedures, your provider will take care to reduce redness and attempt to minimize the size and appearance of stretch marks.
Laser resurfacing increases natural collagen production to smooth and tighten skin in the affected area, reducing the appearance of stretch marks or other scars.
Microneedling or Skin Needling
Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure used to tighten skin and improve overall skin quality and texture. The tiny needles used in the treatment work by creating microscopic injuries on the surface of the skin, stimulating natural collagen production, and firmer, tighter, suppler skin in the treated area. Microneedling is an excellent option to improve the appearance of stretch marks. The treatment softens scar tissue and triggers the skin’s natural regenerative process.
