Stretch Mark Removal
Stretch marks are very common and can make you feel self-conscious. Stretch marks form in the dermis of the skin and when constantly stretched, the dermis can break down, leaving stretch marks behind. Men and women can get stretch marks all over their bodies and the most common causes of stretch marks include growth spurts during puberty, sudden weight gain, sudden weight loss, bodybuilding & pregnancy. Luckily we have a solution and we’re happy to help people in Las Vegas feel great about their skin again and offer a non-invasive and non-surgical stretch mark removal treatment that comes with minimal downtime.
How does it work?
We use the ICON laser system for our stretch mark removal treatments because this laser is FDA approved and clinically proven to reduce the appearance of stretch marks without harming the surrounding skin and treatment area. As the laser penetrates the skin, it will initiate the body’s natural healing process. As the skin heals, new collagen is produced, improving the tone and texture of the skin. During the healing process, the skin also begins rebuilding skin elasticity, resulting in stretch marks fading away over time.
When will I see the results?
With our medical grade ICON Laser system, you can have less visible stretch marks after just one treatment. Patients will begin to notice visible improvement to their stretch marks a few days after their first laser stretch mark removal treatment. Followed by a continuous improvement over the next 3-10 days.
How many treatments will I need?
Stretch Mark Removal treatments work best as a series of treatments and we recommend a minimum of 2-4 treatments, 2-4 weeks apart.
What to expect during your treatment
During your stretch mark removal treatment multiple applications of the laser are applied directly to your skin which will create a tingling sensation on the skin, this has been described as a snapping feeling that is somewhat similar to a rubber band making contact with the skin.
Stretch Mark Removal treatments can take anywhere between 10-20 minutes to perform depending on the size of the treatment area.
Does Stretch Mark Removal Hurt?
You will feel mild discomfort during your treatment, however, the laser we use has a built in cooling mechanism in the hand-piece. Ice Packs can be provided during the treatment upon request to reduce any discomfort.
When can I resume normal activity?
After your treatment, you will be able to resume your day as normal. Please keep in mind that you will need to protect the skin from the sun and you may experience side effects, such as redness or slight swelling in the treated area. The side effects will generally subside within 12 hours.
