Do you have unsightly stretch marks and want a safe, effective treatment for stretch mark removal? You can find the most effective fractional laser treatments at The Cosmetic Vein and Laser Center. They offer two fractional laser treatments; Fraxel™ Re:store and Sciton ProFractional. These cause micro-injuries, which result in the skin producing more collagen, so stretch marks become thinner and smoother. Laser treatment doctors can help you determine which treatment is best for you and set up a treatment plan.
Stretch Mark Removal
Stretch marks do not just appear from pregnancy, and while the exact cause is not known, doctors think stress on the skin resulting in collagen and elastin breakage is the main reason for their appearance. Some of the main causes are pregnancy, bodybuilding, weight loss, steroid use, and endocrine conditions. Newer stretch marks are easier to treat, and most creams or lotions are not as effective as fractional laser stretch mark removal. Fractional lasers are less powerful than full lasers and only affect a fraction of the skin at a deeper level.
Fraxel™ Re:store Laser Rejuvenation
This fractional laser treatment produces thousands of small columns in your skin resulting in microscopic thermal areas. This encourages the collagen production naturally found in skin to heal the small injuries. As collagen regenerates, it heals these areas, leaving smoother skin where the stretch marks are. Improvement is usually seen after multiple treatment sessions with this superficial laser.
Sciton ProFractional Therapy
Laser microbeams target thousands of pinpoint areas causing collagen regeneration. With a deeper laser, improvements are often seen after one treatment. It uses these tiny light beams to soften stretch marks. the thermal heat causes skin cells to produce collagen in the deeper layers of skin. It plumps the skin from deep inside resulting in quicker healing and improved skin texture where stretch marks are located.
Fractional laser stretch mark removal is more effective with shorter recovery time and better results than other remedies. Both treatment options may take several sessions to see the desired results; however, these options only affect the parts of the skin with stretch marks. Stretch marks will become thinner, smoother, and less noticeable with treatments that will not affect your normal activities. To determine which option is best for you, contact a dermatologist in New York at The Cosmetic Vein and Laser Center today to set a consultation! We are conveniently located in Williamsville, NY.
