How Can Fractional C02 Laser Treat White Stretch Marks?
Fractional laser resurfacing can stimulate the collagen growth within the skin layers to rebuild the texture of the skin. The laser energy micro beams break down the skin tissue in small areas, triggering the growth of new, healthy skin over the affected area.
As your skin heals naturally, it will appear healthier and smoother with the unsightly stretch marks no longer noticeable.
What Should I Expect During The Treatment?
- The doctor will target the fractionated laser beam on the problem area for approximately 15-30 minutes.
- Redness and thickening on the target areas may appear which subsides in a few hours.
What Should I Observe After The Treatment?
You may take a shower 12 hours after the treatment.
Avoid direct sun exposure on the treated area for two (2) weeks following the treatment and always use sun block when going outside.
Apply cold compress, cell rejuvenation creams, serum and oils on the treated area regularly to hasten healing.
