Why do stretch marks occur?
Stretch marks are a common skin concern for many people. They typically appear during times of rapid weight gain or weight loss. This is when the skin is stretched beyond its normal capacity. As a result, collagen and elastin fibres can break down and lead to stretch marks forming.
Some of the main causes of stretch marks are:
- Growth spurts during puberty
- Significant weight gain
- Skin stretched during pregnancy (pregnancy stretch marks)
- Hormonal changes
You may also develop stretch marks if:
- You do not drink enough water
- Do not eat a balanced diet
- Take medications that impact collagen production
Common areas for stretch mark removal treatments
At Skin Perfection, we use laser stretch mark treatment on the following areas:
- Upper arms
- Upper legs or thighs
At your consultation, you will need to have a patch test. This is to help us see whether you are suitable for treatment or if we need to recommend alternative stretch mark treatments.
How does laser stretch mark removal work?
Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most popular stretch mark removal treatments. It uses the most advanced laser technology to boost new collagen and give your skin a fresh and healthy glow.
Before you start stretch mark removal treatment, you will need an in-depth consultation at our London skin clinic. During this, you will see how laser resurfacing works and discuss what results you are hoping to achieve.
We will also determine whether laser treatment is right for you and your skin type. From this, we can develop a tailored treatment plan that will help fade or remove your stretch marks.
Your stretch mark removal treatment
The treatment works by removing the damaged outer layer of your skin. This is where the stretch marks or scar tissue is. By doing this, we are helping to encourage your skin to grow new and healthy skin cells.
The laser sends targeted beams of light into the deeper layers of your skin. The heat energy this produces helps to break down the damaged skin tissue and stimulate collagen production. This eventually leads to smoother and more even-looking skin.
The key advantage of this treatment is that it can target your stretch marks directly. This is unlike topical creams or lotions, which do not tackle the root cause of the stretch marks. By stimulating new collagen, it can also improve the strength of your skin. This can also increase its ability to withstand further stretching.
You may be wondering if this treatment hurts. Most of our patients describe it as feeling like small, hot pin-pricks. If you are more sensitive to treatments, we can apply a numbing cream to make the treatment more comfortable for you.
Am I suitable for laser treatment?
We always do a patch test on all patients before moving forward with any laser treatment. Laser skin resurfacing is only suitable for people with lighter skin types. For darker skin tones, your practitioner will recommend other stretch mark removal treatments. This may include a mix of microneedling and chemical peels.
How many laser resurfacing stretch mark treatments will I need?
The number of sessions you will need will depend on your stretch marks and the area of skin we are treating. Your practitioner will discuss how many treatments you will benefit from to reduce the appearance of your stretch marks.
On average, we recommend that our patients have a course of at least four laser skin resurfacing treatments.
When will I see results from my laser stretch mark removal treatment?
You will need to have your full course of stretch mark treatment, which is usually 4-6 sessions. Following your treatments, your body will continue to build new collagen. It can take a few months after your final treatment for you to see the full results. but we promise you will love what you see.
