Stretch Mark Treatment
While stretch marks are a natural part of the skin’s aging and changing process, they can also be minimized for aesthetic purposes if desired. Associated with rapid growth or sudden weight change, stretch marks can occur anywhere (particularly the hips, thighs, and abdomen) and affect anyone. Various treatments for stretch marks include lasers, dermabrasion, and prescription retinoids. In some cases, a tummy tuck will “erase” stretch marks by removing the skin below the navel. In addition to these treatments, carbon dioxide lasering has been shown to use scattered pulses of light, over the course of several treatments, to reduce stretch marks.
