At Celibre, we treat stretch marks with several different lasers depending on the
type of marks (colored or textured) and the type of skin (light, medium or dark).
Because we treat two types of stretch marks and because there are six skin types,
there is a lot of variability from one treatment plan to the next. We also use up
to four different lasers to treat stretch marks, depending again on the color and
texture of the stretch marks.
For textured stretch marks,
our laser treatment works by stimulating new collagen growth
at a molecular level. Using laser energy, we create a thermal injury below the surface
of the skin at the point of the damaged tissue. By creating this thermal injury,
the skin is prodded into developing new collagen, which then decreases the visibility
of textured stretch marks.
For colored stretch marks, there are two different lasers used
to revise the color of the stretch marks and the laser used depends on whether the
patient is light skinned and has pink or reddish marks or is dark skinned and has
brown marks. In either case, the colored stretch marks are caused as the body brings
melanin (pigment) and additional blood flow to the area as part of the normal healing
process after a stretch mark forms. For reddish stretch marks, our pulsed dye laser
closes the microfine blood vessels near the surface of the skin that cause the redness.
For brown stretch marks, our q-switched laser breaks up the pigment formed when
the stretch marks occurred in a way that is similar to the way we remove age spots
Depending on the laser used, a prickly hot or tingling sensation may be felt during
laser treatments. Treatments normally last between
fifteen minutes and one hour, but this depends on the amount of area treated. Celibre
laser treatments are administered by our courteous and professional
