Laser resurfacing for stretch marks and scarring

Laser resurfacing for stretch marks and scarring

Laser resurfacing with our FDA-approved Palomar Starlux 500 is a highly effective option for stretch mark reduction and skin tightening.

The non-ablative fractional laser creates micro-channels of heat in the skin, causing it to produce collagen and elastin. This shrinks the appearance of the stretch marks or scarring, while protecting surrounding skin tissue.

The same laser is used also to treat acne scars and fine lines and wrinkles.

This treatment is only suitable for skin types 1 to 3.

After just 4 sessions, about 6 weeks apart, many people notice improvements in the appearance of their stretch marks and scarring.

It has also been reported that after 6 months from the last session, your skin continues to reproduce new collagen and the skin improvements are even better.

Your questions answered

Do I need a test patch before the procedure?


Before having any laser treatment, you will need to have a full consultation to assess your skin type and suitability.

You will also need to have a test patch, 24 - 48 hours before treatment, to make sure you respond in the correct way to the procedure.

Does the treatment hurt?

The laser treatment feels like small, hot, needle pin-pricks on your skin.

Some patients prefer to have a numbing cream applied before the procedure, but some can manage the treatment without it.

How will my skin look after the treatment?  

Immediately following the treatment your skin may appear a little swollen, but after a few minutes relaxing in the clinic with cool packs it will calm down quite quickly.

If you are having the treatment under your eyes, that area does tend to swell and stay swollen for a few days - but the results are so worth it! Any redness that appears may last for between 7 and 14 days.
