Stretch marks affect between 50% and 90% of women during pregnancy. Unfortunately, they may stubbornly stick around after you give birth. Thankfully, options are available to lessen their appearance or make them disappear. Stretch mark removal treatment can help to improve the appearance of your skin.

Stages of Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are thin lines on the skin. These marks commonly appear on the breasts, thighs, and stomach. They can be caused by rapid weight gain or loss and are typically a result of skin being stretched too much. Unfortunately, stretch marks can be difficult to eliminate, especially at later stages.

When a stretch mark first appears, it will be red in color. During this stage, they tend to be irritated and itchy. The purple stage is the next stage for stretch marks. At this time, they become far more visible and can be blue or purple in color. This stage tends to be the most difficult to deal with as they become extremely noticeable. These stretch marks are older and generally appear when there are tears in the connective tissue beneath the skin. The final stage of stretch marks is the white stage. At this stage, they become white or silver. These are the most mature types of stretch marks and are a result of collagen fibers breaking down.

Laser Technique for Removing Stretch Marks

Laser stretch mark removal is a treatment that uses laser energy to break down scar tissue and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. The light increases blood flow to the affected area, which drastically reduces the appearance.

Laser stretch mark removal treatment can effectively improve the appearance of stretch marks in all three stages. To achieve the best results, you may want to consider combining laser stretch mark treatment with other treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing or microneedling.

Am I a Good Candidate for Stretch Mark Removal?

Most people can receive this treatment and achieve positive results. However, treatment tends to be most effective on purple or red stretch marks and people with lighter skin tones.
