Scar + Stretchmark Removal Fraxel® Skin Rejuvenation

Old scars or new scars, our natural laser therapy will help you regain the beauty you had before the scars and stretch marks.

Make Scars +Stretchmarks a Thing of the Past

Scar and Stretchmark Removal is a non-invasive treatment that is clinically proven to be highly effective and safe for men and women with most skin types. It delivers real change that you can’t achieve from creams and lotions that promise to erase these blemishes, but always fail to deliver.

Our treatment uses advanced Fraxel® skin rejuvenation technology to reduce and erase scars and stretch marks. The creation of therapeutic micro-injuries to the skin which results in microscopic skin healing. This causes the formation of new collagen fibres that create renewed, smoother skin that's free of blemishes.

For new stretchmarks and scars, which are still red/purple/ blue, this treatment can potentially repair up to 90% of the damaged skin. For healed, white stretch marks, you may only see about a 30% improvement in the appearance of the marks.

Treats All Scars

Our treatment can effectively target all types of scars, whether they result from acne or trauma (including from burns and surgery). Icepick and boxcar acne scars as well as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can be reduced and erased.

No Skin Damage

The technology behind Fraxel® allows it to target the deeper layers beneath the surface of the skin. That means your skin won't be damaged and you'll see your results faster.

Minimal Downtime

Because the integrity of your skin isn't compromised, there is minimal downtime associated with this treatment.

Any Area

Wherever your scar may be located, whether it's on your face or body and large or small, we can most likely target it!

How Does Fraxel® Work?

The Fraxel® laser achieves its effects by a revolutionary new process called fractional resurfacing. Instead of treating the entire skin surface, it treats just a fractional percentage of the skin’s surface, thereby allowing the natural ability of the skin to heal itself very quickly after treatment.

This technique works by creating microscopic columns in the damaged skin, where new skin and therefore new collagen, can grow.

Over a series of weeks and treatments, stretch marks will tighten and narrow significantly while scar tissue remodels itself, reducing a great deal of their visibility.

Your Treatment

STEP 1

Once your skin has been assessed and Fraxel® is deemed suitable for you, the treatment begins.

A topical numbing cream is applied on the skin right before your treatment. This helps make the experience a more comfortable one for you.

STEP 2

Actual Fraxel laser treatment approximately takes 20 minutes. During the treatment, you’ll feel a warm, prickling sensation on your skin, for which clients describe as tolerable. The laser emitted from the Fraxel device penetrate the skin to the subcutaneous layer where collagen cells reside. It causes tiny wounds inside the skin that trigger the collagen cells to begin repairing the skin in the affected area.

STEP 3

Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm, similar to a mild sunburn for 2 hours. Swelling and redness is common, but the degree will vary from person to person. Moisturizing cream can be applied to minimize the appearance of pinkness, peeling and flaking. While the skin is healing on its own, sunscreen must be applied every day to protect against sun exposure.

Why Do We Get Stretchmarks?

There are some solid theories out there about how and why we get stretch marks:

Rapid growth causing extreme stretching of the skin over a short period of time causes collagen and elastin in the skin to break, leading to the appearance of stretchmarks, and leaving people searching for stretch mark removal techniques.

When does this occur?

A period of rapid growth could include extreme weight gain, either the unhealthy fatty tissue variety, or through the building of muscle mass; as we as go through growth spurts; and, most commonly, pregnancy. There is also a pretty well-supported belief that stretchmarks may be genetic. This conclusion can be supported by the fact that some people get stretch marks, and some people don’t. Your genetics play a role in how much collagen is in your skin, and how tough it is, and that determines the general elasticity of your skin. Those with more elastic skin are less likely to develop stretch marks, and thus much less likely to require stretch mark removal.

What can we do about them?

Despite all the hype about cocoa butter, vitamin E, and a million other stretch mark creams marketed to pregnant women, there is nothing you can do to prevent stretch marks from occurring. If you work out a lot, gain weight quickly, or become pregnant, you will develop stretch marks if your skin isn’t designed to tolerate the changes. All the creams on the market, despite advertising, are really better suited for use for stretch mark removal after you develop stretch marks.

In the beginning

New stretch marks can appear to be purple or even a little blue. They can look rather ghastly and may appear on your buttocks, thighs, groin, stomach, and breasts/chest. It all depends. The purple-ish tinge to new stretch marks is there because they are new and the damage is fresh. As they heal, they turn white and become far less obvious. Stretch mark creams can help speed up the healing process, and possibly even fade existing marks somewhat, but these stretch mark removal treatments work differently for each person.

Testimonials

"At first, I was hesitant of the procedure but when I heard that it was non-surgical, I immediately went for it. The doctor who performed the procedure was very kind enough to make sure that I was comfortable. It only took less than an hour and I’m very satisfied with the results. My husband is too!"
