Laser Resurfacing of Stretch Marks

What is laser resurfacing?

During this procedure, the skin is exposed to a laser beam. This implies smoothing out the outer cells of the epidermis. Due to the heating of tissues in the skin, fresh elastin and collagen fibers are produced. This can be called the process of intensive skin renewal.

How does the laser remove stretch marks?

The connective tissue is destroyed at the cellular level. When the skin is treated at the stretch position under the action of the laser beam, evaporation of defective cells occurs. They replace the younger cells, forming a smooth and even skin.

The most thoughtful and modern model is a fractional laser. The work of this device is a pinpoint effect on the skin. But with such procedures, the skin also does not experience temperature effects. The excellent characteristics of this device of the cosmetology industry are associated with the deepest penetration of its rays into the thickness of the skin. Under the action of this type of laser, the process of skin renewal starts immediately. The changes occurring in the skin are associated with the natural production of neocollagen. Laser grinding of stretch marks with the use of such equipment is called sealing of cells. On the treated areas you can see a crust. The advantage is that you do not need to wear a protective bandage, as there is no risk of accidental infection.

A laser beam aimed at the skin produces evaporation of the outer layer of cells. The action of the ray extends over the entire selected area of the skin. There is an update and smoothing of the skin, unevenness is eliminated. At the perimeter of micro thermal regions, unevaporated living cells remain. After the session, only two or three days are left for rehabilitation. It is believed that to achieve a noticeable effect and eliminate stretch marks from the skin, several repetitions of such laser resurfacing are necessary.
