Laser Stretch Marks Treatment
What is this treatment?
Stretch marks appear when the skin is suddenly overwrought. Rapid changes in skin size cause the rupture of collagen and elastin components in the skin, causing stretch marks. These most commonly occur during puberty, when they can also happen during pregnancy and weight gain.
What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
There are many benefits of laser therapy for stretch marks. Some of these benefits include the following:
– Improvement in the appearance of stretch marks
– Reduction in the appearance of scars

At Crystal Care Clinic, we treat Stretch Marks through our progressive laser technology which ablates the skin along these streaks or strips and resurfaces the scar tissue and reduces their appearance simultaneously improving the texture and tone of the skin. This procedure allows the skin to heal evenly and the heat from the laser energy stimulates the formation of new collagen.
It’s a quick and simple procedure that is easy to recover from and makes the skin smoother and more attractive. In just a few fast, easy treatment sessions, stretch marks are much less visible leaving behind smoother skin.
