Stretch Mark Reduction
Fractional CO2 laser that is more aggressive and appropriate for white stretch marks that have been present for more than a year. This laser is most commonly utilized for skin resurfacing of the face but recently has been shown to cause great improvement in stretch marks. Fractional CO2 laser makes small micropunctures in the skin in a grid like pattern leaving bridges of healthy skin in between. The procedure stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin. This in turn causes the stretch marks to contract and become smaller. Optimal results are usually seen after 2 to 3 treatments spaced 3 to 6 months apart. The procedure takes approximately one hour depending on the area being treated.
