Remove Stretch Marks with the Icon™ Aesthetic System
Stretch marks are a fairly common issue, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. If you’re bothered by the appearance of your stretch marks, you can fade them away with Icon laser treatments. Laser stretch mark treatments are designed to give your skin an overall smoother appearance without causing harm to the surrounding skin!
How Do Laser Stretch Mark Treatments Work?
The Icon laser uses fractional technology to send pulses of laser light directly to stretch marks to break them down. As your immune system responds to the treatment, new skin cells are produced to naturally revitalize stretch marks. Laser stretch mark reduction treatments also cause new collagen production underneath the skin which can improve the color and texture of stretch marks. Stretch marks are caused by the skin being stretched too far, or too fast such as during: puberty, pregnancy and weight fluctuation.
What to Expect During Laser Stretch Mark Reduction
A single laser stretch mark removal treatment lasts less than a half hour, although multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results. This is considered to be mildly uncomfortable, but a cooling cream can be used to make treatment more tolerable. Some side effects usually include some mild redness and swelling, but shouldn’t last long. Since it is non-invasive patients may resume their normal schedules following treatment with no downtime.
