Nobody likes stretch marks. What purpose do they serve, anyway? To remind us that we once had gorgeous, smooth skin? What a cruel trick of nature.
Most people treat stretch marks with lotions and creams, unknowing that there are other types of treatments available. But as famous people like Cindy Crawford and Halle Berry know, the most effective way to reduce or get rid of them is through laser therapy. The reason the stars use this is because it actually works to make your skin look better.
Laser beams sound like science fiction, blasting your skin and making it smoother while reducing stretch mark coloring. There are a few different types of lasers that are used to help minimize stretch marks — the pulsed dye laser and fractional laser therapy are two of the most common (Kai uses the state-of-the-art Fraxel machine, which is a fractional type of laser.) Both types of laser therapy use wavelengths of light to stimulate new growth of collagen and elastin, meaning hello new skin, goodbye stretch marks.
The laser makes small “injuries” in the skin (don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt) where the stretch marks are leaving normal, untreated skin in between. The untreated skin creates a response in the body that helps heal the treated area quickly, replacing it with new, healthy skin. We’ve seen great results.
Please contact us if you’re interested in a free consultation; we’d love to tell you more about how laser therapy can treat a variety of skin conditions.
