Before we start talking about stretch marks, it is important to note that there is no real way one can prevent them. However, you do not have to worry about it! Due to advances in technology, getting rid of stretch marks with the help of advanced treatments is now an option. Stretch mark removal procedures help individuals to significantly reduce the physical appearance of stretch marks. After undergoing the procedure, the patient’s skin appears rejuvenated and has a radiant glow. Hence, the stretch mark removal procedure has gained tremendous momentum in the last couple of decades.

Our treatments are technologically and medically validated, and we ensure we offer all our patients the safest treatments.

What is a stretch mark?

One of the most common stretch marks is caused due to pregnancy or by losing and gaining weight. The major reason why stretches marks start to appear is due to the breaking of collagen present in the skin. It is essential to understand that stretch marks are visible and do not go away on their own. However, with advanced treatment options at The Baby Spa NZ, you do not worry about the highly visible stretch marks.

Stretch marks usually appear on the skin due to several reasons including, excessive expansion of the surface. Hence, as a result, the collagen-based formation is likely to break or rupture when the skin stretches too far.

Does the procedure work?

According to several studies, laser treatments trigger the production of collagen that significantly reduces stretch marks and scars. One of the most effective and highly successful technique to reduce the visibility of stretch marks is a laser treatment. The collagen starts to thicken when the affected area is modified by laser. When light is absorbed, new skin starts to grow.

In the process mentioned above, new skin cells that have been developed help in changing the tissue. The laser stretch mark removal treatment is completed once the tissues start resembling healthy skin.

Common causes of stretch marks

  • Fluctuation in the weight
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetics
  • Lifting heavy weights
  • Accelerated adolescent growth

Common areas for stretch marks

  • Breasts
  • Thigh
  • Stomach
  • Underarms
  • Hips

Am I the right candidate for the procedure?

The most ideal candidates include individuals with a fair complexion and also individuals who have a light skin tone. Individuals who have been working out, lifting heavy weights, or are pregnant are ideal candidates for the laser stretch marks removal treatment. In addition, the visibility of stretch marks may vary from person to person and hence, customized treatments are also available.

Is the stretch mark removal procedure painful?

The common consensus amongst patients is that they feel a stinging sensation at the time of the procedure. The stinging sensation could be the result of the laser as pulsations of the energy work on the skin. Although a few patients opt for a mild anaesthesia, no painkiller or local anaesthesia is required.

What are the benefits of the laser stretch mark removal procedure?                   

At the Baby Spa our laser technicians are aware that each patient’s skin tone and complexion is different. Hence, we offer customized laser treatment for stretch marks based on the requirements of our patients.
