Stretch marks are formed as a result of a variety of activities. Some people develop these marks when they change their exercise routine and start to lift weights. As their body gets bigger, their skin stretches faster than the body can respond. The result is the formation of stretch marks. These marks also happen when an individual is overweight or as a result of pregnancy. When that they are located in a very noticeable place, they can affect a person’s self-esteem.
There are a lot of over-the-counter products that promise to reverse the appearance of stretch marks. However, most people find out the hard way that the majority of these over-the-counter products produce little to no results. Surgical options may be available, but these may have some inherent risks and could leave you with an extended amount of recovery time.
Laser treatment has been shown to be an effective way to address stretch marks. The procedure involves the use of light beams to get rid of layers of skin around the treatment area. The idea is to destroy the molecular bonds of the tissue that form the marks. After the stretch mark is removed, the treated area begins to heal. New layers of skin develop. The new layers of skin that develop are healthy, and the marks vanish.
There can be no denying the results that one gets after laser stretch mark removal. Certain factors such as the patient’s age, their overall health, and how long they’ve had stretch marks may impact how well the procedure works. Some patients with light marks will see the results they want after a couple of treatments. Other patients with more severe marks may need more treatments. Depending on the severity of the stretch marks, you might expect them to be removed completely, or they may drastically fade. The results that each person gets will vary.
A large percentage of patients who have laser stretch mark removal are happy with the work that they’ve had done. When the procedure is performed by a trained professional, it is very safe. Stretch marks are an unwanted part of life. They can affect your self-esteem and the way you view your appearance.
