What Causes Scars and Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks, or “striae,” appear after our skin is stretched abruptly. When your skin stretches, collagen and elastin fibers rupture. In response, your body rapidly heals itself, causing these red or white marks to appear. Weight gain and pregnancy are the most common causes of stretching.

How Do We Address Stretch Marks?

Traditional stretch mark treatments rely on the use of lotions and creams. Unfortunately, there is no cream on the market today that has been proven to work. Laser treatments serve as an effective alternative to addressing stretch mark woes. Here at Avail Aesthetics, we use the ICON laser to ease the appearance of these marks and give you the skin you deserve.

What Can I Expect?

Our ICON laser uses fractional technology to deliver pulsed energy to the skin. This targets stretch mark discoloration and stimulate the production of new collagen to improve smoothness. For best results, 3-5 treatment sessions may be needed. Thankfully, the procedure is really quick, often taking as little as 30 minutes to complete. Better still, there’s little to no downtime needed afterward.
