Stretch marks are surprisingly common and cause many people to feel embarrassed. There are many creams and other products out there that say they can help fade stretch marks, but few seem to live up to their claims. The Icon Laser is an incredibly effective way of giving you smooth skin. Thanks to this revolutionary treatment, stretch marks removal is easy and achievable.
How Does the Icon Laser Work?
First, it is important to understand how stretch marks form. On top of the obvious, which is that your skin was overstretched, there is also the break down of collagen in the tissue. Skin typically gets stretched by dramatic weight fluctuations and pregnancy.
In order to get rid of stretch marks effectively, your body will need to create more collagen. The Icon Laser not only triggers collagen production, but it can also break down the stretch marks themselves. As a result, you get smoother, healthier-looking skin.
What to Expect with Icon Laser Treatments for Stretch Marks Removal
Step one is to sit down with us for a consultation. We will learn more about your medical history and ensure that the Icon Laser will be safe and effective for you. When it becomes time for the stretch marks treatment itself, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the stretch marks. The laser will then be used to trace each mark.
In order to reach your optimal results, you will likely need more than one session of this treatment. Most people find three to six treatments to be ideal. These treatments should be one month apart to allow your body enough time to create new collagen.
As your body creates new collagen and heals, the stretch marks will become thinner and smaller. You may require an additional treatment to get the skin tone of the area back to normal. This can be discussed at your consultation.
