Stretch Mark Removal

Stretch marks are long streaks, stripes or lines that can appear on the skin. They result from rapid stretching of the skin, as occurs during pregnancy, rapid growth periods and weight changes.  It’s common for both men and women to seek stretch mark removal treatments if they’re unhappy with these changes to their skin’s appearance.

Stretch marks are a form of scarring, also called striae, that can affect both teenagers and adults, and are very common. They tend to affect women more than men, and their formation may also be affected by hormonal changes.

These marks are created by the tearing of the dermis, which is the layer that helps the skin to keep its shape, and sometimes can feel itchy or painful as they form. Fortunately, stretch marks don’t present a health risk, and don’t prevent the body from functioning normally.

Stretch marks usually start as red or purple marks, most often around the areas where more fat is stored. The most common locations for stretch marks to appear are the abdomen, thighs, breasts, upper arms, lower back, hips and buttocks.

Although stretch marks do fade over time, generally to a pale silver colour, and become less noticeable, for some they are a cosmetic concern that may affect confidence and self-esteem. Wanting to remove stretch marks is a perfectly natural desire, in response to the appearance of these scars.

Fortunately, there are various treatments that can be used to improve and in some cases get rid of stretch marks.  We offer laser stretch mark removal and other customised treatments at both our Melbourne and Ballarat clinics.

Laser Stretch Mark Removal & Other Treatments

At Clinica Lase, we offer a number of ways to treat stretch marks, leaving you with clearer and smoother skin. 

Chemical peels, LED light therapy, Excel V, Skin Needling, Pico FX, Pico Genesis and Laser Genesis are some of the treatments that we use to improve the appearance of stretch marks.

Your clinician will work with you to develop an individual treatment plan to get rid of your stretch marks that suits your needs, after analysing your skin during your consultation.

Our approach to skin concerns is a holistic one, and we may refer you to other health specialists, when that supports your treatment program with us.

Suitable Candidates for Stretch Mark Treatment

The most suitable candidates for a stretch mark treatment are people who are in good health, and who have had stretch marks appear on their skin at some point in the past.

It doesn’t matter how long ago, or how recently your stretch marks appeared, there will be a suitable treatment that we can use to help remove them.

Stretch marks can be effectively treated in both women and men, and the great thing about this treatment is that it reduces their appearance by inducing new collagen formation.

Preparing for Stretch Mark Removal

As part of your initial consultation, your clinician will ask you some questions, in order to develop a complete picture of why you might be experiencing this skin condition.

 

We’ll also discuss your medical history and previous treatments to ensure that we develop a customised plan that suits your skin and desires.

What to Expect During Stretch Mark Removal Treatments

Before your treatment begins, we will let you know what you will experience during and after the procedure, and how soon you can expect to see results. 

 

No two treatments are the same, and each person can benefit from a different solution to their issue of stretch marks. Our clinicians will ensure that your treatment is best suited for your age, body and lifestyle.

 

Most patients find the experience of the laser being applied to skin  tolerable, but if you are concerned about discomfort, please discuss with your clinician, who can apply a topical cream before your treatment begins to minimise the sensations.

 

If you are having a chemical peel as part of your treatment, you will feel a slight tingling sensation as the peel starts to dry, which is a sign that the chemicals are beginning to take effect.

 

During any skin needling procedure, you may also feel a small amount of discomfort, but fortunately, the treatment is very quick and the results you will experience are remarkable.

 

The average stretch mark treatment generally lasts for 20 to 40 minutes, and some patients may require more than one session before the desired results are achieved.

Stretch Mark Treatment Downtime & Recovery

Following your clinician’s post-treatment instructions, including the use of suitable products, is essential to ensure that your skin heals quickly and to achieve your desired results.

 

You will begin to see results after two to three weeks, which gives the treatments time to work and for your stretch marks to become less visible. Even better results will be realised over time as your skin continues to respond to the treatments.

Safety and Peace of Mind

We use the latest medical-grade lasers to perform all of our laser treatments at Clinica Lase, which means they are 100% safe and effective for treating stretch marks. 

 

All of our treatments are carried out by our qualified and experienced clinicians, who have government-approved laser safety qualifications, many years of experience and in-depth knowledge to ensure that all risks are minimised.

 

We also test a small patch of skin before commencing any treatment to assess your comfort levels and skin reactions, because your safety and wellbeing is our number one priority at Clinica Lase.

 

If you are interested in stretch mark treatment and what it can do for you, please contact Clinica Lase today to find out more.

The cool weather and heating can often leave our skin feeling dull, dehydrated and sensitive. One of our go to products this winter is the PCA Hyaluronic mask. One ingredient that makes this product so special is Sodium Hyaluronate – a high molecular weight hyaluronic acid that occludes the skin, attracting and holding 1,000 times its weight in moisture within the skin. PCA's Hyaluronic Acid Overnight Mask is great all for seasons but especially in winter when we need that extra boost of luxurious nourishment.
