Stretch marks are striations — or linear marks — in your skin. When parts of your body grow quickly, and your skin can’t keep up, stretch marks develop. That’s why they’re common during pregnancy, in fast-growing children, and in bodybuilders.
When your body grows, and your skin can’t keep pace, it quite literally gets stretched. You see stretch marks because your skin didn’t have enough collagen — the protein that keeps it elastic — to fully span the area. Stretch marks are very common and can appear on your:
While stretch marks won’t go away on their own, they generally do fade over time.
If you’re unhappy with the stretch marks on your skin, you’ve probably looked into the range of creams and ointments available. While some may offer a minimal reduction of stretch marks, the results are usually unimpressive.
Fortunately, there is another, much more impactful way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The Spa at Mount Dora offers its patients Icon laser treatments.
During your Icon treatment, your aesthetic specialist moves the Icon laser over your stretch marks. The Icon device emits light energy via a fractional laser, which breaks down the stretch marks. At the same time, it stimulates the production of new collagen, giving your skin the elasticity it needs to stay smooth. Together, this dual action creates consistent, even skin.
The treatment is short (usually about 30 minutes) and completely noninvasive. You’ll be able to relax as the laser goes to work and can continue on with your day immediately afterward. You might notice some redness at the treatment site, but that will subside naturally.
One Icon treatment may be enough to achieve your desired results, but many patients choose to schedule multiple sessions to unlock their smoothest, most beautiful skin.The Spa at Mount Dora team can talk with you about your skin goals and help you set up the right treatment plan for your desired results. Usually, three to five sessions are ideal.
If you’re living with stretch marks, call The Spa at Mount Dora or schedule your appointment online. Smooth, clear skin could be just a few sessions away.
