Laser Stretch Mark

Laser Stretch Marks Removal and How It Works

What causes it?

Stretch marks are caused when the skin stretches beyond its breaking point resulting in thin pink or red lines to manifest. Slowly the elastic collagen layers of the middle layer of the skin where stretch marks occur, called the dermis, will begin to break down. This damage causes the dermal tissue to become inflamed and may cause micro bleeding and the formation of scar tissue typical of stretch marks. Consequently, rough, irregular reddish lines begin to form.

As the middle layer of skin stretches the epidermis, or exterior layer of skin, it is also forced to stretch and becomes transparent. Eventually the stretch marks from the middle layer of the skin begin to protrude through the outer layer so that the stretch marks are not covered at all by the epidermis. As the inflammation and bleeding heals, scar tissue are formed, leaving a stretch mark.

In many cases the red stretch marks will gradually fade to a silvery shade as the scar tissue loses its blood supply. Because pigment-creating cells are found in the epidermis, and because the normal epidermis has split to reveal the underlying stretch mark scar which has no pigment, the resulting silvery stretch marks are lighter than the natural skin tone.

Stretch marks are all very different and complicated to treat. That’s why we customize each individual laser stretch mark removal treatment to each patient’s specific needs.

  1. Stimulating the production of new collagen in the stretch mark
  2. Stimulating the production of new collagen in the stretch mark

A typical treatment protocol to remove stretch marks usually includes 3-4 different lasers per session, as well as a variety of non-laser modalities such as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) with Physiological Regulating Medicine (PRM) formulations, and hyperbaric oxygen treatments.

First, every stretch mark is individually targeted with the laser.

Color Blending:

Next, we administer a color blending laser treatment causing the “turnover” of excess melanin that may be held in the stretch mark. This evens out coloration, blending it with the surrounding skin.

Removal of Redness:

Some stretch marks are red because of excess vascularization using a different laser technology, we target this micro-vasculature, to make the redness go away.

Stimulation of Collagen:

Smoothing out the surface of the stretch mark

Lastly, we stimulate the production of new collagen with an intense collagen treatment to fill in the stretch mark from the inside out. This treatment targets old deteriorated collagen fibers deep in the dermis that are beyond repair in order to accelerate its removal through your body’s own natural processes. Other, less damaged collagen will be remodeled into new and younger collagen. We also target fibroblast cells throughout the dermis, stimulating them to produce amplified quantities of new, young and healthy collagen. This process requires 2-3 different lasers.

Smoothing of the Skin:

The final part of the laser stretch mark removal treatment smoothes out the surface of the scar with an epidermal resurfacing laser (a laser peel). This phase removes a precise portion of the upper layers of the epidermis (the dead cells on the top layer), along with its imperfections, discolorations, fine wrinkles and roughness.
