Stretch Marks

Stretch Mark Treatment with The ResurFx laser

You insist on wearing sleeves in the summer when you would rather be sleeveless. You may have preferred the bikini, but settled on the tank and boy shorts. Maybe you won’t even wear shorts at all. You try to tell yourself it doesn’t matter, but then you still cover up.

You are not alone. There are plenty of people who feel they need to hide their stretch marks. Stretch marks are not exclusive to women; men have them too. For men, stretch marks are more common on the back and shoulders.

Causes of Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are caused by damage to the skin in the middle layer, the dermis. Your skin may have had to stretch but didn’t keep up, so now there is a scar. For women, stretch marks are often found on the arms, breasts, belly, and thighs. For men and for women, the causes are primarily the same.

A growth spurt or puberty
Weight gained or lost
Increased muscle mass
Adrenal conditions or cortisol
You may have been told nothing could be done about the marks years ago. That theory has changed. There are a few treatments available that could help, such as Retin A or microdermabrasion. One of the most effective treatment options for stretch marks is laser therapy.

The Lumenis ResurFX\

The ResurFX is a fractional laser. That means it only affects a fraction or percentage of the skin. Small laser dots penetrate the skin, stimulating collagen production. With increased collagen, the skin is tighter and firmer. Your skin looks smooth, and the shimmering streaks are much less noticeable.

Treats Many Conditions

The Lumenis ResurFX laser is an effective tool used to treat a variety of skin concerns.

Loose or sagging skin
Age spots or sun spots
Uneven skin tone
Fine lines or wrinkles
Acne scarring
Surgical scars
The ResurFX does not damage the skin, and optimal results usually require a series of treatments. After a session, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn, but that clears within a few days. You could end up feeling much more confident in your own skin. Call Essence MediSpa today! 845 691 3773.
