People with stretch marks are often extremely frustrated because they have done everything “right,” taking all the proper actions to eliminate stretch marks like proper diet, toning exercises, and the application of topical creams -- but the stretch marks remain. Fortunately there are now some excellent options for the professional removal of stretch marks. Laser Cliniqúe’s founder and medical doctor, P. Alexander Ataii M.D., is a leader in the field of stretch mark removal and other skin enhancements.
Stretch mark removal with Active FX
Active FX is a fractional laser resurfacing treatment that is ideal for removing age spots, scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and stretch marks. In fractional resurfacing, the light of a laser is used to remove pigmentation and improve the texture of the skin. It stimulates collagen production and rejuvenates skin cells below the surface. Fractional laser systems have been shown to be an efficient technique for diminishing the appearance of stretch marks.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photorejuvenation, along with Vibradermabrasion, may be the best treatment option for recently-formed reddish stretch marks. IPL technology generates broad spectrum light waves that penetrate into the lower layers of the skin and change to heat energy below the surface. This beneficial heat energy stimulates collagen production and helps repair damaged skin.
Vibradermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses a patented vibrating surface to remove dead skin cells. It is a painless technique that can improve the appearance of stretch marks. Vibradermabrasion can be used in combination with IPL to treat stretch marks that are reddish in color.
Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments designed to eliminate imperfections of the skin and to improve its tone and texture. In combination with Vibradermabrasion, chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks in patients with darker skin. A peel removes the outer layers of damaged skin and causes new healthy skin cells to be brought to the surface.
