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.
"Dr.Adler is an exceptional dermatologist. I have visited several doctors for my moderate adult acne and kept getting pushed to use Accutane, which I was uncomfortable with; it was refreshing when Dr.Adler offered safer and more long term solutions that fit my needs. I am grateful that he didn’t try to hard sell anything and even recommended that I stay away from excessive products or treatments, but rather simplify my routine with a “less is more” approach. He always has a smile and great attitude during our visits. I would recommend him just based upon his bedside manner and the TruDerm environment alone, but his knowledge and expertise far exceeds the other Plano area dermatologists I have seen, so it is easy to tell everyone I know about him."- L.F. / Google / May 31, 2019
"First I love Dr. Adler. I started going to him at the age of 24 (I am 50 and fabulous now) back in the day lol.. then he left the park cities location so for a couple years I did not see him and found out he was at TruDerm and made an appointment ASAP!My experience at this location was fabulous I did not have to wait long everyone who works there is nice and professional and they smile at you (I mean really smile at you) the facility is absolutely beautiful and clean and they have a selection of complementary drinks for the clients (calm down not cocktails lol) . I am glad I found Dr. Adler and I am glad he is at this location. I am happy."- M.P. / Google / Dec 03, 2019

"Earlier today I posted a negative review (not typical of me - I am one who usually stays quiet when frustrated and speak up only when I get great service - look at my Yelp history, 97% 5 stars) after there was some confusion around my appointment. I wanted to update my review, however, because the office manager and my amazing nurse Sally made it right by getting me back in for my treatment and handling me so kindly through it. They were eager and kind to help figure out a solution for me and I am very appreciative of their efforts. Things happen, it's how they are handled that matters. Eden the PA was also so so sweet she did my numbing cream and I will be booking an appointment with her for some medical skin care needs. I got the sublative laser treatment and I can't wait to share before and after photos :) Excited for the results. Thank you all!"- L.P. / Yelp / Nov 15, 2019
"My overall experience at this location (Legacy West) was amazing! The staff were very kind and patient. I’ve started using the products that were prescribed and I’m already seeing results! ❤️"- N.R. / Google / Nov 09, 2019
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.
