What Are Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are a form of scarring that can occur on the skin. They look like streaks that are often indented into the skin, and they have a red or visibly different color compared to the surrounding normal skin.

Stretch marks can form all around the body. They typically form in the following areas:

  • Breasts
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Underarms
  • Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Back

What Causes Stretch Marks to Form?

Stretch marks typically form when the skin is placed under a significant amount of strain due to rapid stretching or shrinking. This damages and breaks the structural elements of the skin, causing streaks or tears to form under the surface layer of the skin.
The skin contains structural proteins like elastin, which helps it stretch, and collagen, which provides it with support and strength. Rapid changes in weight place a large amount of strain on the skin. This can push the elastin and collagen to their limit until the skin breaks, forming visible streaks and indented marks.
Stretch marks are often the result of rapid weight gain, which causes the skin to rapidly expand. This is why stretch marks often occur as a result of pregnancy. They can also occur due to rapid muscle growth in those who lift weights frequently and as a result of growth spurts.
Stretch marks can also form due to rapid weight loss. In some cases, the stretch marks may have already been present but were not as visible prior to the weight loss. In other cases, the rapid shrinking of the skin can cause a lot of strain to occur.

Your Stretch Mark Treatments will be performed by the Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics team located in Jupiter, FL.

Can I Reduce the Appearance of My Stretch Marks?

While stretch marks can fade in appearance over time, in many cases they are still very visible and may remain so forever. However, there are treatment options that have been proven to effectively reduce stretch marks and improve the appearance of the skin.

At Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics, we offer stretch mark treatments using the GentleMax Pro laser. This advanced dual-wavelength laser system uses a 755 nm Alexandrite laser and a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser to provide fast and powerful treatments.

During the treatment, concentrated laser energy targets the stretch marks. The laser energy penetrates the skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This helps to tighten and smooth the skin and repair the damaged areas of the skin. The laser will also resurface the skin, allowing fresh healthy skin cells to form.

How Much Does Stretch Mark Treatments Cost?

The price of stretch marks treatment varies. The number of treatment areas and the number of sessions needed can impact the total cost of the treatment.
