Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks

Laser treatment for stretch marks(How can I treat my stretch marks)

Stretch marks are harmless and they will fade over time. Although stretch marks are not harmful to physical health, they are difficult to treat. Stretch marks are a result of your skin changing form quickly as a result of weight gain or loss. The advanced laser treatment for stretch marks helps to improve their look and texture.

Determining factors for treatment

Treatment for stretch marks makes them fade and improves their appearance. The factors your cosmetic Gynaecologist will consider during treatment include

  1. Cost
  2. Convenience
  3. What is your skin type?
  4. What is the expectation?
  5.  How long have the stretch marks been present?

Treatment for stretch marks

Stretch marks are considered “mature” if they have existed for more than a year. If you start treatment early you may be able to improve the outlook.

Home remedies

There are many lifestyle factors and home remedies suggested. Some of them are

* Keep yourself hydrated.

* Have lots of fruits and vegetables.

*Keep your skin well moisturized.

*There are lots of skincare products made of cocoa butter, Vitamin E and Glycolic acid. You can try with any of them though there is no strong scientific evidence.


Retinol, which is derived from vitamin A, helps to reduce wrinkles and improve the texture and hydration of your skin. Retinol creams may be useful if the stretch marks are just a few months old. Before you observe any effects from retinol creams, you may need to use them consistently for at least six months.

Laser Treatment

The laser treatment for stretch marks is done with the help of energy-based devices such as laser treatment and micro-needling. These treatments are safe and done as outpatient procedures. And you will just have a warm sensation.

Scar-related skin texture and redness can also be reduced using laser therapy.  Microneedling is the preferred treatment for women with darker skin. Microneedling targets the skin’s healing function more precisely and safely because it penetrates the skin deeper.

Cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery is a possibility if various treatments don’t work. Tummy tucks and mummy makeovers are some of the cosmetic surgery options. Your cosmetic gynaecologist will assess you and guide you on this.

To Summarize

More research is required to determine what is most effective and whom it will benefit when it comes to both medical and natural remedies. Moreover, it’s always advisable to consult your doctor to confirm that the treatment you’re using is safe before beginning to treat stretch marks brought on by pregnancy. You and your cosmetic gynaecologist can decide on the best course of treatment based on your need and health condition.
