Everyone can develop stretch marks, no matter their age or skin type, but they’re most common in women. These lines on the skin occur when your skin expands rapidly during significant body changes, like puberty, weight gain, and pregnancy.

Even though stretch marks are a normal part of life, at Integrative Skin ID at Integrative Health & Heart in Frisco, Texas, we understand that they can affect the way you feel about your body. That’s why under the leadership of Dr. Shahan Chowdhury, our team or experienced aesthetic specialists provide the most advanced, surgery-free options to treat skin imperfections, including stretch marks.

To help you get maximum results, we use laser therapy treatments with the industry-leading aesthetic platform, Icon™. This surgery-free treatment can improve the tone and texture of your skin.

How stretch marks form

A stretch mark is a line or band in your skin’s connective tissue. These imperfections develop when the middle layer of your skin stretches too fast, causing collagen and elastin fibers to break. Collagen and elastin are vital proteins that give your skin its elasticity and structure. When they break, blood vessels become visible. Over time, those red or purplish marks heal and fade until they become silver or white in color.

A few things can increase your chances of getting stretch marks, including genetics or certain hormone levels, but it isn’t completely understand why some people get them and others don’t. And, unfortunately, once you have stretch marks, they usually don’t go away on their own. With laser therapy, however, you can say goodbye to stretch marks.

Erasing stretch marks with the Icon laser system

The Icon system is a noninvasive technology that uses intense light energy to reduce the signs of stretch marks and other skin imperfections. This innovative approach targets and breaks down the tissue that causes your unwanted stretch marks while also triggering collagen production. As your body heals, you end up with skin that’s smoother and more even-looking.

You’ll love the results laser therapy offers, because treatments are quick, come with little discomfort, and provide better-looking skin without surgery.

Treatment is easy and quick

Laser therapy sessions at Integrative Health and Heart can take as little as 30 minutes, but the total time depends on the size of your treatment area. For some treatments, a topical numbing cream may be recommended to increase your comfort during the treatment.

As the aesthetic system goes to work — the Icon wand moves across the surface of your skin to deliver its patented laser energy — you may notice a faint tingling or snapping sensation in the treatment site, but the procedure is otherwise comfortable. Afterward, you can resume regular activity immediately.

After your stretch mark treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling in the area, but this disappears within a few days. Your stretch marks begin to fade as your body heals. For optimal results, your specialists may recommend a series of laser therapy sessions.

If you’re ready to say goodbye to your stretch marks, call Integrative Skin ID at Integrative Health & Heart at (214)-385-4080, or request an appointment via the online booking tool.
