Stretch Mark Removal in Orlando
Stretch marks can appear at any age on any person, no matter their medical history. Stretch marks are indented streaks that form on the abdomen, hips, breasts, buttocks and other locations on the body. Most often stretch marks will appear on pregnant women during their final trimester. You typically won’t feel any pain associated with these marks, but the appearance is usually off-putting for most. They can sometimes fade over time, but don’t completely disappear either. Stretch marks can appear darker than others, depending on why and where they are. The length of time you’ve had them, where on your body they are, what caused them to appear and the type of your skin can all play a role in how dark they appear. Most stretch marks have a pink or white color to them, but can sometimes appear more red, black, blue or purple in hue. Females are more likely to develop them as males, especially if you become pregnant at an earlier age. Anyone can experience stretch marks, especially if you go through rapid weight loss or gain, or rapid growth in adolescence.
Orlando Laser Stretch Mark Removal
The actual removal of stretch marks isn’t complicated at all. Speaking with your doctor, you can outline a plan on seeking removal of your marks, and what to expect during and after the procedures. You will most likely need multiple appointments to seek results, but they are typically short sessions, lasting around 15-30 minutes. The laser will emit a strong burst of light at a certain wavelength or color. Through this use of lasers, it breaks down the stretch marks, producing new tissue production under the skin. This new collagen being produced will smooth out the skin and help improve texture and color. Depending on the stretch marks you’re dealing with, different wavelengths, frequency and durations will be used to properly diminish light or dark colored stretch marks. These procedures are nonsurgical and leave you ready to get back to everyday tasks. Most people experience some swelling and redness on the areas lasered, but that’s all. The procedure is pain-free as well, with some people experiencing slight discomfort, there is no serious pain at all throughout the process.
Fractional 1540 + RF Microneedling
Fractional 1540 is a non-ablative skin resurfacing treatment which means it delivers heat into the skin while keeping it intact. RF microneedling is the latest aesthetic treatment designed to reduce the appearance of scarring, wrinkles, and sagging skin. It is an ablative resurfacing treatment and works by creating micro wounds in the outer layers of the skin while delivering RF energy into the deep layers. Both of these state-of-the-art technologies stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to help improve the texture and appearance of the skin. Using a combination of ablative and non-ablative treatments is a new approach in aesthetic medicine and has proven to be very effective.
What to Expect
At the time of your appointment our office will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area, which helps to reduce any discomfort during the procedure. We will start with teh RF Microneedling and follow up with the Fractional. The treatment can take anywhere from 30minutes to an hour. Patients typically begin to see results after 3 sessions but may need 6-8 sessions to achieve optimal results.
Get Your Body Back
Gain a better sense of yourself and your body through laser stretch mark removal. You can achieve the smooth, mark free skin you’ve always dreamed about without having to commit to a lengthy or expensive beauty regimen. Seeking a laser treatment option gives you short sessions with highly visible results. Although the stretch marks won’t technically go completely away, they are barely visible after your laser treatments. And if you suffer from darker-shaded stretch marks, you’ll want results like these.
How to Care for Your Skin After Treatment
After your RF Microneedling & Fractional Laser treatment, you may experience redness and swelling as well as tiny scabs in the treatment area. It is important to moisturize and not exfoliate the skin for at least a week after treatment. Any retinol products should be discontinued from use 1 week prior to and after treatment.
