Say Goodbye to Stretch Marks!

For most of us, losing the weight is a big enough hurdle. Being left with stretch marks is an unwanted and constant reminder of the fact that we’re still not where we want to be. Lotions and potions promise to work wonders, but you can rub these in all you want and they simply don’t deliver results. Surgery will literally remove stretch marks, but you don’t want to go under the knife if you don’t have to. So the question is, are there other non-invasive options that really work?
The short answer: Yes.


It’s true: From hair removal to skin tightening, lasers offer beauty solutions we can’t imagine life without.(Who knew a little well-placed energy could do all that?) And, yes—the good news is you can add stretch marks to the list of skin fixes for these little miracle machines. To treat them most effectively, the right laser needs to be matched up with stretch mark age and color characteristics:

  • If your stretch marks are still red or purple (indicative of damaged blood vessels), they are newly formed and should be treated with a pulsed dye laser or KTP laser. This laser will effectively eliminate those blood vessels causing the redness without damaging the rest of the skin.
  • If your stretch marks are white or silver, these are older and require a heavier hitter to reduce their appearance. A fractional CO2 laser will selectively target these stretch marks, stimulate collagen renewal, and tighten the skin. Because this laser treats only a fraction of the skin at a time, you will have little down time and a fast road to recovery.


If you could polish your stretch marks away in a series of treatments, would you? The manufacturers of SilkPeel (Envy Medical) introduced a body polishing hand piece 2 years ago that has shown incredible results. In 4 to 6 treatments, the combined diamond-grid exfoliation with skin treatment serum infusion stimulates and rejuvenates the natural skin turnover process while refining the skin for an overall more vibrant appearance.
