Stretch marks may develop after a growth spurt, weight fluctuations, and after pregnancy. Stretch marks may initially be red and as they mature, become white due to loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. Scarring from trauma or injury, surgical scarring, or acne scarring may appear along with redness, texture changes, and thinning of the skin.
When stretch marks are red, we can treat them with the Cutera Vascular Laser and LimeLight to target the superficial redness. We treat mature white stretch marks with Beautytek and RF Microneedling to target scarring and help rebuild lost collagen to firm and smooth the skin.
Redness over a surgical scar, trauma, acne, or injury can be treated with Laser Genesis and LimeLight.
After pregnancy, you may have a combination of a diet-resistant fat pad with stretch marks and loose skin over the top. We recommend a combination of Venus Freeze along with Laser Genesis to treat all layers and improve shape, contouring, firmness, and texture.
