Treat Scars And Stretch Marks With Our Combination Approach
Scars and stretch marks have historically been difficult to treat. In fact, most people assume that these are permanent. It’s true that traditional skincare products aren’t potent enough to make a difference, but we have a solution that will offer results. To treat these stubborn skin conditions, we utilize a combination approach. With laser treatments and an at-home regimen, you will see a significant improvement in the redness and texture of scars and stretch marks.
Stretch Marks Are Common
While many people are self-conscious about stretch marks, over 85% of women have experienced them. They appear during rapid growth phases in our lives, such as puberty and pregnancy. Initially, they appear red but over time they typically fade into a “pearly” appearance resembling a scar. Both scars and stretch marks are a result of damage to the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. As a result, they can be hard to treat.
Reve’s Approach To Scars and Stretch Marks
We have found that a combination treatment approach is remarkably effective at reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Firstly, we use laser treatments to stimulate tissue remodeling of the skin so that the scarred skin is replaced by new, healthy tissue. Over the course of several treatments, you’ll begin to notice fading of the scars or stretch marks and an improvement in skin elasticity. In addition to laser treatments, we will prescribe some medical grade skincare products to use at home. These will aid in reducing hyperpigmentation and improving the texture of the skin. While complete removal is rare, most of our patients see an 80% improvement in redness and texture.
