Lasers We Offer to Treat Stretch Marks
Our laser stretch mark treatments include:
Fractional resurfacing stimulates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in increased collagen production that smooths the bumpy texture of stretch marks.
The Fraxel® Re:Pair produces controlled injuries deep within the skin to stimulate new collagen production, which tightens and smooths the skin.
Fraxel Dual is an effective laser for stretch marks that carefully clears the outer layer of skin, stimulates collagen production, and promotes new cell growth to rejuvenate the skin and produce a smoother appearance. Clinical development for the device even took place at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York’s research center.

Questions and Answers
Q: Does laser therapy for stretch mark treatment work?
A: Lasers for scars and stretch marks are considered safe and effective, especially when performed by qualified and experienced physicians. Laser treatments work best on fresh, new, or acute, red stretch marks. Older white stretch marks don’t respond as well to lasers. It is best to treat stretch marks as early as possible with lasers for optimal results.
Q: Does laser stretch mark treatment hurt?
A: Laser treatments for stretch marks are non-invasive procedures. Topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure, and there is usually little to no pain associated with the treatment. Most patients only report feeling a mild, warming sensation when the device is passed over the treatment area.
Q: Are there any side effects of laser treatment for stretch marks?
A: While there are no serious side effects or complications post-treatment, some patients may experience redness and inflammation over the treated area. This typically resolves overnight, and applying cold compresses may provide comfort and speed up the recovery of the treatment area.
Q: How many sessions will I need?
A: Laser therapy for stretch marks typically requires 4-6 treatments for optimal results. Following those 4-6 treatment sessions, you may want to return for follow-up appointments to maintain the appearance of your skin.
Q: When will I see results?
A: Improvement in the appearance of stretch marks is typically noticeable after 4-8 weeks.
Q: How long do results last?
A: With proper skincare, results from laser stretch mark treatment can last up to 10 years. Factors such as fluctuations in body weight or pregnancy may lead to the creation of new stretch marks.
