Top 3 Treatments for Stretch Marks

Aug 30, 2021 | Skin Care

If you have lost a lot of weight or have had a baby, you probably know the frustration that stretch marks can bring. Stretch marks may also make you feel less confident in your stretch-mark-treatment appearance. North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic recommends these three treatments to help make these marks be less visible.

RED Light Therapy

Discovered by NASA, RED light therapy uses infrared light to penetrate deep into the skin to promote healing from within. This non-invasive treatment is used to treat numerous skin conditions, including stretch marks by stimulating collagen production and increasing blood circulation to the affected areas. There is no downtime required with this treatment because it is non-invasive.


Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves introducing a series of sterile, fine, sharp, acupuncture needles into the skin to be treated. The minor damage created by the needles encourages the skin to produce new skin cells to repair the damage. This procedure is ideal for use in minimizing stretch marks on the abdomen and thighs.

Lumenis M22 Laser

The Lumenis M22 laser uses ablative technology to resurface the skin. By removing thin slices of discolored skin, the appearance of stretch marks is reduced. You should see improvement after just one treatment and the number of treatments required may vary from patient to patient.
