What Are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks – called striae distensae are discolored scars that could form on the stretched skin over different parts of the body. They are formed in the dermis – the middle layer of the skin responsible for maintaining elasticity and shape; and might appear as wavy red stretch marks, silver or white in color.
What Causes Stretch Marks?
Stretch skin marks are generally caused by:
- Rapid stretching of the skin such as during pregnancy
- Rapid weight loss or gain and due to hormonal fluctuations
Certain medications such as steroids could also cause skin marks by breaking down connective tissues in the dermis and disrupting collagen production. The scars that develop are usually permanent in nature and do not disappear on their own without permanent stretch mark removal treatment. The most common sites for the stretch marks treatment are:
- Abdominal area
- Lower back
There are multiple permanent stretch marks removal treatment options available in NYC to decrease the appearance of skin marks.
What Is Laser Stretch Marks Removal Treatment?
If you’re wondering “how to get rid of stretch marks fast” – laser treatment is considered a safe and effective treatment option to remove stretch marks on thighs or any body part including the breasts. Our practice provides an individualized approach to permanent stretch mark removal in NYC and utilizes different lasers such as:
- Fractional Laser
- KTP laser
- Pulsed dye laser
As needed depending on the type of stretch mark treated. For patients with the red and purple stretch marks, we might provide stretch mark treatment with pulsed dye or KTP, for silvery and white stretch marks, Fraxel laser would be the best stretch mark removal option in NYC.
KTP and pulsed dye lasers target damaged blood vessels surrounding the stretch marks treatment area and decrease redness. Fraxel laser treatment uses a focused beam of light from the laser equipment to penetrate the skin and cause coagulation of underlying tissue.
It stimulates biologic changes in the tissues and helps to form new collagen and elastic fibers. After several stretch mark laser removal treatments, the skin tightens and heals itself revealing smoother and healthier skin.
What Do the Stretch Mark Removal Treatments Feel Like?
Laser treatments are usually painless and are considered the best way to get rid of stretch marks. You might feel a warm sensation and a mild sting as snapping of the rubber band. If you are concerned with the discomfort during laser stretch mark removal treatments in NYC, please let us know we may administer topical or local anesthesia to alleviate your pain and discomfort.
