Minimize Your Stretch Marks with Noninvasive Laser Therapy

Minimize Your Stretch Marks with Noninvasive Laser Therapy

Stretch marks are both common and harmless. That doesn’t mean you feel perfectly fine about having them, though. Whether you got them during a growth spurt, pregnancy, or at another time, you might be sick of having them permanently visible. 

Fortunately, we can help. With the Palomar laser stretch mark removal treatmentRobert Mirabile, MD, and Vivia Hsu, MD, can help to reduce the visibility of your stretch marks. To help you attain your cosmetic goals, we offer this treatment right here at Best Impression Medical Spa in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. All told, if you have stretch marks, the Palomar laser gives you an option to say goodbye to them. 

How the laser reduces the appearance of stretch marks

This stretch mark treatment works by directing laser energy into your stretch mark. Specifically, we use the fractional laser to send pulses of light energy into the area where you have the stretch mark. This energy triggers new tissue generation. As your body builds new, healthy skin cells in the area, they replace the stretch mark, helping to fade it from view. 

That means that this laser treatment works to address both issues that come from stretch marks: noticeable color and texture irregularities. This option can help to fade the color of your stretch mark and break up any raised texture. 

What to expect during laser stretch mark therapy

A lot of other lasers on the market today are CO2 (carbon dioxide) lasers. They work by removing a thin layer of your skin. They’re effective, but they come with downtime.

The Palomar laser is different. Because it isn’t a CO2 laser, it doesn’t require any recovery period afterward. 

In fact, this laser treatment is completely noninvasive. The actual treatment only takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the body area you want to address. 

After your appointment, your body goes to work. The new tissue production that the laser energy stimulates usually takes somewhere between four to six weeks. Over that time, you should see your stretch marks improve.

Some people achieve their ideal outcome with a single session, while other stretch marks require more than one laser treatment. If you need or want more laser therapy, we generally recommend scheduling your next session about a month after the preceding one. 

Ultimately, with the Palomar laser stretch mark removal treatment, Dr. Hsu and Dr. Mirabile have a way to help you get rid of those pesky permanent marks. To find out if this option is right for you, call our office at (610) 272-8821, book your appointment online, or text us at (484) 603-3231.
