Laser Scar and Stretch Mark Removal

How are stretch marks treated?

The expert staff at Femme Next Generation Women's Care offers some of the latest and most effective stretch mark treatments on the market. Treating stretch marks can include:

  • Chemical peels
  • Microneedling
  • Prescription-strength topical ointments

One of the most beneficial topical solutions is tretinoin. This specialized type of retinoid cream can make your stretch marks much less noticeable.

As an alternative, or in addition to tretinoin, you may benefit from laser skin rejuvenation treatments with the Icon laser. Icon’s breakthrough technology gently breaks down scar tissue and stimulates collagen production. Over time, your skin gradually develops new tissues that replace your overstretched and scarred skin. 

Where on my body can I have stretch marks removed?

Virtually anywhere on the body. The most common areas for stretch marks are the abdomen, thighs, and hips. Some patients also treat stretch marks in the breasts, arms, and other areas of the body. The Icon laser is safe and effective for use all over your body. 

How does laser scar reduction work?

At Femme Next Generation Women's Care, the professional medical team uses state-of-the-art laser technology to reduce the appearance of your scars. Laser treatment breaks up scar tissue at the cellular level.

Safe for all skin types, the Icon laser destroys your scars and stimulates the production of new tissue by increasing the levels of collagen and elastin — proteins that improve the health of both your skin and its support structures.

What type of scars are removed with laser scar reduction?

With the cutting-edge Icon laser, your doctor can improve the appearance of multiple types of scars, including:

  • Atrophic scars, which appear as depressed pockets and often result from acne
  • Hypertrophic scars, which rise above the skin after an injury and may appear pink
  • Keloid scars, which manifest as red or purple raised skin that seems to grow over time

What does my skin look like after a skin tightening and scar treatment?

Treatments that target skin laxity and scars of any kind work by generating collagen within your tissues, which makes your skin tighter and firmer. 

It also causes old scars to continue their healing processes and diminish in appearance over time. Additional skin benefits of collagen regeneration treatments include:

  • Smoother texture
  • Even texture
  • Even tone
  • Less cellulite
  • Fewer stretch marks

After evaluating your skin, your provider can give you a more precise picture of what it will look like following skin tightening and scar treatments. In general, most patients who undergo these treatments agree that their skin looks brighter and more youthful.
