Stretch Marks are extremely common and occur when the skin has to stretch to accommodate extra weight. It’s for this reason that many Stretch Mark sufferers are young women going through puberty or pregnant women. Although not painful, Stretch Marks can be unsightly and can cause feelings of embarrassment. Here at The Harley Medical Group, we understand that in order to feel body confident and happy, you need to feel comfortable in your own skin. We offer an effective treatment for Stretch Marks to leave your skin looking and feeling smooth. Read on to find out how you can banish those Stretch Marks for good. Laser treatment ‘ what is it? The only Laser treatment for Stretch Marks and Scars to be approved by the FDA (US Food & Drug Administration), Fractional Laser treatment offers the patient a noticeable improvement from the very first treatment, although we recommend a course of treatments for optimum results. How does it work? We use Fractional Laser technology to beam pulses of light onto the treatment area. This causes the scar tissue to break down and produce new healthy tissue, leaving your skin looking smooth and giving it a more even appearance. How effective is the Laser treatment? Studies show that patients who have undergone Laser treatment have noticed an improvement in the appearance of their Stretch Marks and Scars of between 51 and 75 per cent, allowing them to feel confident and happy in their skin. Is it suitable for men too? Although women are the main sufferers of Stretch Marks, men too can get them, after a period of dramatic weight loss or gain. Just as with our female patients, we’ll analyse your skin with our Computerised Photo Imaging Skin Analysis tool to enable us to tailor the Laser treatment to your skin type. Is the treatment suitable for all skin types? Fractional Laser treatment can be used effectively on most skin types, with the exception of darker skin types 5 and 6 on the Fitzpatrick Scale. If you’re unsure if this applies to you, book a free consultation and come and have a chat with one of our specialists. How long will it take to recover from the treatment? This non-invasive Stretch Mark solution requires virtually no recovery time, which means that you can resume your normal activities straightaway following treatment.
