Stretch Marks Removal
Stretch mark is such a common problem for millions of people around. Stretch marks or striae is a form of skin scarring that is related to pregnancy, obesity, puberty and short-term weight gain from bodybuilding or other physical activities. Stretch marks may arise when the dermis or the middle layer of the skin (that is responsible for maintaining the shape and elasticity of the skin) is stretched more than it can endure. The connective fibers in the skin eventually start breaking up and this, as a result, starts disrupting the collagen production and cause scarring. These stretch marks may not really cause any adverse effect on the health but can surely prevent anyone from looking and feeling the best.
However, regardless of the reason for the stretch marks, there are various methods to treat stretch marks. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, a surgical tummy tuck procedure and a laser stretch mark removal technique can remove stretch marks completely or partially. Among all of these procedures, the laser stretch mark removal procedure is an advanced treatment that will help to gain back the natural looking smooth and clear skin. Hence it is preferred by majority people and is a non-invasive procedure and requires no downtime.
Considerations to be Made Before Undergoing Laser Stretch Marks Removal Treatment
Stretch marks can affect any area of the body including abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, lower back, arms, and chest where the skin is subjected to a sudden change and can occur for a number of reasons like genetics, puberty, Bodybuilding, corticosteroids, ethnicity, and pregnancy. However, anyone who intends to undergo a stretch marks removal treatment must have a realistic expectation about the results that they desire to achieve after the treatment. To achieve the best results make sure the candidates are in a good health and aware of the possible side effects and complications.
Benefits of the Laser Stretch Mark Removal
The highlighting benefit of the laser stretch marks removal is its effectiveness. This treatment has a very high rate of patient satisfaction as is extremely a safe procedure. Since excimer laser is a precisely controlled technique so there is a minor chance to cause injury to the area of treatment. Finally, it includes the least recovery period or downtime than any other surgical procedures.
Laser Stretch Marks Removal
During a laser stretch marks removal procedure a beam of light is introduced to the affected skin and that removes thin layers of the skin around the stretch marks. The excimer laser is used uniquely to address the issue and the best part of this laser treatment is it does not burn or cut the affected skin areas like other laser treatments. The high energy ultra violet laser light disrupts the molecular bonds in the skin tissue and breaks down the molecular bonds in the skin tissue. This process of removing or destroying the tissue layers is popular as skin ablation.
After the completion of the laser treatment for the removal of the stretch marks the treated area is treated with antibiotic ointments and waited until the area completely heals. The healing continues with the formation of new layers of healthy skin will start appearing and the stretch marks will no more be visible on the new healthy skin.
After completing the laser stretch mark removal procedure the affected area or the treated area will be red and tender. This is because the layers of the scarred skin are being removed and the new skin replaces the damage. For very few people blistering may occur which otherwise may cause symptoms like burn or injury. However, all of these effects are temporary and do not last for long. Most of the patients heal within few days or may even take a few weeks.
The laser stretch mark removal treatment shoes the most effective results in most of the cases. The results may vary from patient to patient depending on factors like age of the stretch marks (since older and serious stretch marks are difficult to treat), skin type, and colour of the skin. To get visible results candidates may require undergoing as many as ten treatment sessions to completely get rid of the undesirable stretch marks. It is important to remember that the visibility of the stretch marks depends on the seriousness of the appearing scars. For serious cases, the visibly of stretch marks may only be reduced rather than completely removing it.
The Risks Associated
Just like any other medical procedure the laser stretch mark removal also incurs some of the complications and side effects. Since the high energy laser beams can ablate the skin so there is a possibility that if mishandled then it may cause a serious damage to the tissues. This is why it is vital for the candidates to choose their cosmetic dermatologist very carefully. There is a possibility that the severely entrenched stretch marks may not be completely removable with laser treatment. There is always a risk of blistering and the occurrence of other negative reactions to the treatment. But these complications are temporary and is not life threatening.
Cost of the Laser Stretch Mark Removal
There are many other variables that exclusively influence the cost of the treatment procedures. The stretch marks removal method costs in most cases differ greatly depends on the technique used and its effectiveness, the extent of the treatment, the severity and location of the treatment, etc. However, the laser stretch marks removal range starts from $200 per treatment.
