Stretch Mark Treatment Q & A

What causes stretch marks?

Stretch marks, as the name implies, develop in areas where your skin has to stretch beyond its regular form — like your belly, buttocks, back, or thighs. When you’re young, your skin might be able to bounce back, but as you age and start losing collagen and connective tissues start breaking down, you might start noticing the unsightly discolored bands more and more.

Stretch marks commonly occur because of weight gain or periods of rapid weight loss during pregnancy or growth spurts. Some men and women have a higher risk of developing stretch marks due to:

  • A family history of stretch marks
  • Use of corticosteroid creams
  • Adrenal gland disorders

Stretch marks are more likely to occur if you have pale skin and are female, although anyone of any age, race, or gender can certainly develop them.

How are stretch marks treated?

At BellaDerma, you can start a personalized stretch mark treatment plan right in the office. The aesthetic specialists treat stretch marks with the revolutionary Icon laser system. Using intense pulsed light (IPL) energy, Icon beams gently penetrate deep down into your skin.

This reaction triggers new cell and tissue growth, including fresh collagen formation. Over the following weeks, your old damaged tissues get pushed away, so new firmer skin can come to the surface.

These noninvasive laser stretch mark treatments are virtually painless, causing just a little warmth and vibration. Because you have no downtime, all you have to do is go back to your regular activities and watch your stretch marks gradually fade away.

How many laser stretch mark treatments do I need?

You should notice a dramatic improvement in your stretch marks within about 2-3 weeks of your first treatment at BellaDerma. For optimal results, though, a series of 3-5 (possibly more) sessions is recommended. During your stretch mark treatment consultation, the team let you know what to expect and about how many laser stretch mark treatments you’re probably going to need.
