Stretch marks are common among both men and women. Resembling white and light pink, slightly raised lines that can appear on many areas of the body, approximately 80% of people will develop stretch marks in their lifetime. Stretch marks can form due to weight loss and weight gain (fluctuations), pregnancy, aging, and genetics play a factor for some. At TruDerm in Allen and Plano, TX, stretch marks can be safely and effectively treated with sublative E2 laser therapy. Using radiofrequency technology, this advanced laser system reduces the appearance of light and dark stretch marks and creates a softer skin appearance without affecting nearby skin or tissue.

Radiofrequency laser treatments use short pulses of light to target and treat the skin's support structure. This process occurs because the laser beams heat the deep layers of the skin just enough to stimulate collagen without damaging the top layer or epidermis. The result is a tighter, firmer, smoother skin surface. Since the process is nonablative, there is generally little to no downtime with each treatment. The number of sessions needed to attain the right results will depend on the location of the stretch marks, how many there are, their color, and thickness. Each treatment session takes about 30 minutes - 2 hours to complete.
What to Expect
After laser treatment, patients are able to resume regular activities but should avoid strenuous activity for a couple of days so you can heal. There will be some temporary redness, swelling, and numbness on the treated areas, but these effects should subside within a few hours. Some patients will be able to see dramatic improvements almost immediately. Depending on the type of stretch marks and how many are being treated, the best results will require multiple treatment sessions (usually 3 - 5). In addition, it may take several months to see the final results as the skin repairs and rebuilds itself.
