Stretchmark treatment


Stretch marks, medically known as striae, occur due to rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth or rapid weight changes, such as in obesity, puberty and pregnancy. When the stretch marks first appear, they are red in colour and this marks the point at which they obtain the largest benefit from laser treatment (PDL). However, if treatment is commence when the marks  progress to white in colour, it causes them to improve but not completely disappear. Treatment options for old stretch marks include micro-needling, carboxytherapy, PRP, dermapen, chemical peels and fractional laser.
