Stretch marks can be treated with selective fractional laser skin resurfacing in our office.
Stretch marks are caused by an injury to the epidermis and dermis of the skin. Depending on the amount of skin stretching, the skin can be either temporarily or permanently damaged. Most stretch marks have a characteristic redness caused by an initial hypervascularity followed by a gradual whitening or lightening of the stretch mark scar as the scar heals. New lasers offered by Board Certified plastic surgeon and Beauty Guru Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian offer treatments for the stretch marks. Below, a before and after photograph of stretch mark treatment on the lower back. The redness that appears after the laser treatment is transient and gradually fades with a tighter, more taut skin appearance.
