If you’ve gone through pregnancy or experienced growth spurts and fluctuations in your weight, you might have stretch marks on your stomach, thighs, or buttocks. Although these marks are harmless, you might not like the way that they look. At Vibrant Dermatology & Skinbar MD in Dedham, Massachusetts, we can minimize these marks with advanced laser technology.
We provide these treatments to people living in and around the Boston, Dedham, Norwood, Westwood, Milton, Canton, Walpole, Sharon, Foxboro, and Needham areas.
Can You Use a Laser to Remove Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks, which scientists call striae, are lines that look lighter or darker than the rest of your skin. These marks are likely to develop when you experience a period of rapid growth. These marks form as your skin stretches and the connective fibers in your skin weaken. Laser treatments are a fantastic way to fade these imperfections and obtain attractive, blemish-free skin.
During your appointment, we will improve the appearance of your skin by using a laser to send energy into your body. This energy will give you smoother, healthier-looking skin. As your skin responds to this energy, the appearance of your stretch marks will be minimized.
How Many Treatments Will I Receive?
When you come to our office for your initial consultation, we will take a look at your stretch marks and discuss the aesthetic outcome that you would like to achieve. Once we’ve examined your body, we’ll let you know how many cosmetic treatments you will need. Although your schedule will be unique, it’s common to receive multiple treatment sessions.
Our treatments are able to minimize your imperfections without harming your surrounding tissues. As a result, you’ll have minimal or no downtime after we’ve treated your skin. That said, we may give you topical creams to rub onto your treatment area. These creams will boost your body’s production of elastin and collagen and enhance the effects of your treatment sessions.
Who Is Eligible for This Aesthetic Treatment?
Before we treat your skin, we will review your medical record to ensure that you are in good enough health to receive your desired treatment. If you are not a good candidate for your preferred cosmetic technique, we can suggest other options that will work for you.
Can I Use Other Methods to Improve My Skin?
In addition to laser treatments, we can use topical creams and microneedling with platelet-rich plasma to improve your appearance. During a microneedling treatment, we will use needles to make very small injuries in your skin. These tiny injuries will allow your tissues to absorb a healing substance called platelet-rich plasma.
Certain dermal fillers can also reduce your imperfections by increasing the collagen fibers in your skin. As these connective fibers build up in your body, your unwanted marks will fade away.
Enhance Your Skin
Your stretch marks don’t have to be a permanent part of your life. Receiving a series of cosmetic treatments is a great way to fade these marks and give your skin a refreshed, attractive look.
