This amazing technology breaks down stretch marks and stimulates the production of fresh collagen with nothing more than pulses of fractional laser energy. After a series of treatment sessions, your stretch marks could disappear before your eyes as your body floods the area with healthy skin cells.
Understanding Stretch Marks
Your skin is incredibly resilient, but sudden weight changes can create permanent imperfections. Stretch marks take place when the epidermis stretches so quickly that the body can’t produce enough fresh cells to replace the damaged cells. Even though stretch marks aren’t dangerous, some patients find them to be unattractive. Many companies claim that their creams and ointments will reduce the appearance of these marks, but very few products do anything more than moisturize the skin. In order to see long-term changes, your body must rebuild its supply of collagen.
Icon™ is a fractional laser treatment in Royal Oak, MI that penetrates deep into your dermis and subcutaneous fat. Pulses of energy gently break down the damaged cells around the stretch marks to stimulate your body’s healing response. When your body recognizes the damaged tissue, it will quickly begin to create new cells. It is also going to rebuild your supply of collagen so that your skin remains firm and toned. This multifaceted approach allows us to produce world-class results without injecting any foreign substances into your skin. Over the course of months, your stretch marks will shrink and become much less visible.
This treatment alters the shape, tone, and texture of stretch marks and other surface blemishes. You won’t notice the final results for months, but your skin will eventually change before your eyes. As your skin continues to improve, you must go out of your way to protect it from direct sunlight. If you plan on being out in the sun for long periods of time, then you need to cover the treatment site with loose clothes and/or use high-quality sunscreen.
