Say Goodbye to Stretch Marks with Fraxel Skin Resurfacing
Do you have unsightly stretch marks on your abdomen, arms, thighs or chest area because of weight fluctuations or pregnancy? Once stretch marks have formed on the skin, they do not disappear on their own. Once formed, your only options are to treat them with a skin resurfacing procedure and topical skincare products. The Fraxel skin resurfacing procedure is proven to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and can help to get rid of them completely over time.
Talk to your cosmetic surgeon or a medical spa in your area to find out if you may be a good candidate for Fraxel skin resurfacing. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and can be administered to almost any part of the body.
How Fraxel Gets Rid of Stretch Marks
Fraxel is a non-ablative laser that removes the top layer of skin and stimulates collagen production. It will buff away the top layer of skin where stretch marks are most prevalent, and can stimulate the skin tissue at a deeper level so that it grows back thicker, stronger and smoother. As your skin grows back, your stretch marks will disappear and diminish entirely.
Fraxel may be the best solution for getting rid of stretch marks that have been on your skin for several months and years, and for stretch marks that have not responded to topical skincare products. The treatment will leave your skin looking and feeling much smoother, supple and more youthful.
Fraxel can be administered to several parts of the body, including:
- Upper arms
- Stomach and abdomen
- Inner and outer thighs
- Lower back
- Chest and décolleté area
Reasons to Get Rid of Stretch Marks with Fraxel
The latest Fraxel devices are designed with a Thulium laser and a dual-laser system to reach the skin at a deeper level than traditional lasers. The laser treats only a fraction of damaged skin at a time, which is why this stretch mark treatment carries less risks than other skin resurfacing procedures. Some of the key reasons to get rid of stretch marks with Fraxel include:
- Relatively painless procedure
- Fast and effective treatment
- Does not require anesthesia
- Visible improvements within a few weeks after treatment
- Little downtime
- No need for bandages
- Relatively affordable
After your Fraxel treatment, you will need to use moisturizing products and products that will protect and restore your skin. Your cosmetic surgeon or the medical spa will provide you with a post-procedure skincare regimen so that you can achieve the best possible results. You will notice your skin becoming smoother and firmer over several months after your treatment, and can get a treatment once every six months for long-lasting results.
Get in touch with a cosmetic surgeon in your area to find out if you are a good candidate for Fraxel skin resurfacing. Your surgeon can take a close look at your skin’s condition and determine the best treatment plan for getting rid of stretch marks.
