During treatment, the laser will be applied to the stretch mark-prone area of the skin at Novelty Clinic.

Laser treatment is commonly referred to as laser skin resurfacing because of this.

The Fraxel laser is an FDA-approved fractional laser that treats only a part of the skin at a time. The Fraxel laser creates minute incisions in the skin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact and stimulates the synthesis of new collagen. The older white stretch mark scars respond well to the fractional Co2 laser. This incredible resurfacing laser treats stretch marks by heating the skin and smoothing it out, leaving behind new, healthy skin cells.
The eMatrix laser is a highly successful stretch mark removal procedure. The eMatrix laser is a non-ablative laser that uses radiofrequency to heat the dermis and induce new collagen growth. The texture of the skin gets smoother and the appearance of stretch marks fades as more collagen is generated inside the dermal layer. Stretch mark elimination is accomplished by breaking up the scar tissue of the stretch marks using the heat from the eMatrix. The eMatrix works by restoring the appearance and tone of healthy skin. This is why the eMatrix is so effective at treating scars of all kinds, including surgical and acne scars.

For treating red stretch marks, the VBeam laser is the top standard. In terms of heat, the VBeam's powerful laser energy specifically reduces redness in stretch marks while keeping the surrounding skin unaffected.

As the skin heals, new collagen is formed which repairs the damaged collagen fibers and fills in the lines caused by the stretch marks. After the treatment you will see improvement in the depth and texture of the stretch mark. Microneedling promotes new collagen growth through collagen injection therapy. Typically, it can take at least 3 treatments with microneedling to improve the appearance and tone of your stretch marks. The microneedling wand has fine needles which can adjust the depth of the needles for the anatomic are the body which needs treatment.
Pregnancy is a time when the body changes, the skin expands and grows, and there are several hormone changes. Stretch marks on the abdomen, sides, and breasts are common during pregnancy.
