Easy Stretch Mark Removal with the Icon™ Aesthetic System
Stretch marks are often dreaded by pregnant women who are willing to try anything to stop them from occurring. Despite their best prevention efforts, superficial treatments cannot keep stretch marks from appearing. Stretch marks occur when the existing skin is rapidly extended and new cell production can’t keep up. Laser treatments with the Icon Aesthetic System are able to activate new collagen production and heal stretch marks from the inside out.
How Do Laser Stretch Mark Treatments Work?
The Icon’s fractional laser light extends deep below the surface of the skin to heal stretch marks. The laser energy creates areas of affected tissues that trigger the body to activate new collagen and elastin production mechanisms. As new tissues develop below the surface of the skin, stretch marks begin to fill in and disappear without harming the surrounding areas. Icon laser stretch mark treatments are FDA-approved and are suitable for all skin types.
What to Expect During Laser Stretch Mark Removal
Reducing the appearance of stretch marks is fast, with most treatment sessions lasting about 30 minutes. Three to five sessions are generally recommended to achieve the best results. During the procedure, the laser application may cause some slight discomfort, but anesthetic is not usually needed. Laser stretch mark treatments have few side effects including some temporary redness and swelling. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.
