How to Diminish the Appearance of Stretch Marks

Apr 9, 2014 | Blog, Skin Care

Stretch MarksThere is an assortment of laser skin treatments available that help reduce the appearance of bothersome and unsightly stretch marks. When your skin stretches, it creates scars, and while erasing them completely isn’t an option, we can significantly improve the appearance of your skin. At theNorth Scottsdale Laser and Skin Care Clinic, we recommend Total FX for a significant improvement in color, depth and texture, which is the best solution for this common problem.
These scars develop just about anywhere on the body, but the stomach, breasts, hips and thighs are the most common areas. Newly formed stretch marks are generally pink, purple or red, but after some time, they often fade and become more of a white or gray color. Stretch marks are certainly more difficult to get rid of than they are to get, and it’s only possible to fix the texture and tone of the scarring.
Total FX is a combination of Active FX and Deep FX, which are both laser resurfacing treatments, but the latter provides a deeper treatment for the most stubborn of scarring. While these laser skin treatments are commonly used separately to target sun damage and signs of aging, Total FX is the best fix we can offer to attend to scarring and stretch marks. Most of our patients see results in about a year of Total FX treatments. WithTotal FX, stretch marks remarkably transform to the same color as the rest of your skin.
We’ve already emphasized the fact stretch marks cannot be totally banished, but laser skin treatments, especially Total FX, decrease redness, lessen the presence of white or gray marks and correct the tone and texture of the skin. Having stretch marks that are a lot less noticeable is much better than experiencing the embarrassment these scars cause when they are apparent.
If you’re looking for ways to diminish the appearance of stretch marks, consider Total FX, because unlike other laser skin treatments, it will actually make a difference. We would love for you to request a free consultation, so we can discuss our skin care services.
