Stretch Mark Removal

What causes stretch marks?

Rapid skin stretching can cause microtears in the deeper layers of connective tissue. To heal these tiny injuries, your body lays down thin bands of scar tissue that usually appear as the lines known as stretch marks.

Conditions that contribute to stretch marks include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Hormonal imbalance

Most of the time, stretch marks are lighter in color than your natural skin tone.


How can stretch marks be removed?

The aesthetics team at Aesthetics By Family Care has extensive experience using the Alma™ laser system to treat stretch marks. The Alma laser uses focused laser light to break apart the scar tissue that causes stretch marks. 

Following your laser stretch mark treatment, your body eliminates the tiny pieces of scar tissue through your lymphatic system. The laser treatment also triggers ongoing cellular renewal and the production of collagen and elastin to rebuild new skin in the area where you had stretch marks. The result is smooth, even-toned skin that is free from unsightly stretch marks.

 

What should I expect during my laser stretch mark treatment?

The Alma laser is equipped with a specialized cooling system and settings that let your Aesthetics By Family Care specialist treat only the target cells, without harming your skin or surrounding structures. Stretch mark treatments are virtually painless, with little to no downtime necessary.

Treatments with the Alma laser are safe and effective for all skin types and skin tones.


How many stretch mark removal treatments will I need?

How many treatments are needed to fully revitalize skin in the area where you have stretch marks depends on your individual healing response and other factors. Most of the time, a series of treatments is needed for optimal results. 

After your initial consultation, your expert at Aesthetics By Family Care designs a personalized treatment plan to achieve maximum stretch mark reduction. 


Is there any downtime with stretch mark removal?

Treatments with the Alma laser system don’t usually require any downtime. You may have some side effects, such as redness, bruising, or swelling, but these typically go away quickly.

Laser stretch mark removal can give you smooth, even-toned skin. Schedule a consultation by calling Aesthetics By Family Care today, or make an appointment online.
