Most people find themselves with stretch marks due to growth spurts as adolescents, giving birth, or simply rapid weight gain or weight loss and Artisan Laser Resurfacing in Melbourne, Florida can help reduce the appearance of these unpleasant marks.
At the Clevens Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery, we utilize the Artisan 1540™: Fractional non-ablative laser to treat stretch marks that are fully developed and are white or light in color.
Fractional resurfacing is a selective treatment that leaves the surface of the skin unharmed. The laser damages tiny columns of skin, creating hundreds of microscopic wounds that boost collagen production and help the body heal stretch marks. Fractional non-ablative lasers boast a short recovery time – the skin will just be pink in the treated region for about a week.
Treatment of the lower abdomen takes about an hour and half, but it takes five to six treatments to see results. Sessions should be spaced three to four weeks a part. Although fractional lasers cannot remove stretch marks completely, after six treatments they should fade by about 50%.
So if you are tired of those unsightly stretch marks and are sick of hiding them when you hit the beach then look into Artisan Laser Resurfacing. If you are considering treatments for stretch marks, call our office at 321.727.3223 to schedule an appointment. We would love to meet with you and discuss the best treatment options available to you.
