Stretch marks are a common concern for many individuals, and they are caused by pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss, and growth spurts during puberty that appear as visible streaks on the skin, leading to a source of self-consciousness affecting one’s confidence.
Fractional CO2 Laser has gained attention for its ability to improve the appearance of stretch marks. The laser works by delivering targeted beams of light to the affected areas, creating controlled micro-injuries in the skin and stimulating collagen and elastin production to boost skin’s elasticity and firmness for an improved texture and smoother skin. Here’s what you need to know about Fractional CO2 Laser:
How Does Fractional CO2 Laser Work?
Fractional CO2 Laser delivers intense light beams in a fractional pattern to the skin. This creates microscopic columns of thermal damage in the skin’s deeper layers, stimulating collagen and elastin production for smoother and rejuvenated skin.
Reducing Stretch Marks With Fractional CO2 Laser
With micro-injuries being created by the laser to trigger the body’s natural healing response, this can effectively reduce stretch marks by stimulating collagen production that improves the texture and appearance of the stretch marks.
Applying numbing cream to the area being treated can minimize discomfort as Fractional CO2 Laser deliver laser beams. The treatment can cause some temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort that usually subside within a few days.
Number of Sessions
The number of Fractional CO2 Laser sessions required to see visible improvement can vary depending on the severity of the stretch marks, skin type, and individual response to the treatment. Multiple sessions are typically recommended, spaced a few weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
