Stretch Marks

Normal, healthy skin is made up of collagen and elastin. These two components create a net-like system that allows the skin to stretch and then return to its original shape. If the elastin or collagen in the skin becomes damaged, the result is stretch marks (striae distensae).

Stretch marks are caused by changes in weight and/or muscle mass. Skin tension changes, such as induced by weight lifting or pregnancy, and hormonal mechanisms also play a role in stretch mark development.

Treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels minimally impact the appearance of stretch marks. Traditional surgery is not typically recommended, as there is the potential for having an even more disfiguring surgical scar after the procedure.

Stretch marks can be successfully improved; laser treatments are the best option for reducing their overall appearance. If the marks are red in color, our 595nm Pulse Dye laser can reduce the redness and encourage new collagen and elastin production, thus allowing the skin to look more natural.

If the marks are white in color, our fractional CO2 laser (Lumenis FX) is showing remarkable strides in treatment of this heretofore untreatable condition.
