Real Doctor, Beautiful Results
Stretch marks are the result of the skin stretching and tearing beneath the surface, changing the shape of collagen molecules. They are typically associated with rapid weight gain or growth, hormonal imbalances and pregnancy. Skin type and genetics also play a role. Marks vary in appearance and can be red, white, silvery, thin or wide. They are commonly found on different parts of the body including hips, stomach, thighs, arms, and breasts.

Varying laser therapies can be used alone or in combination to penetrate to the dermal skin layer to stimulate new collagen fibers to grow. Over the course of the treatment program, stretch marks will fade and become less visible.
