STRETCH MARKS TREATMENT

Stretch Marks Treatment dallas

Stretch marks, or striae as they are known in dermatology, are a form of scarring on the skin that forms in the dermis when the elastic fibers are overstretched and the skin’s ability to expand has been exceeded. This can happen during periods of hormonal flux, rapid weight loss or gain, and growth spurts. For this reason they are very common during pregnancy, during the teen years, and after weight lifting.

Men and women can get stretch marks on several areas of their bodies, including the abdominal area, thighs, hips, breasts, upper arms or lower back. When stretch marks first appear they are purple or reddish lines, however they fade with time and eventually fade in color. Once stretch marks have appeared, it is essential to treat them as early as possible.

Stretch marks before and after treatments⠀

At Kassir Dermatology your satisfaction is our top priority.  Dr. Kassir will safely and effectively treat your stretch marks by using lasers and other modalities, such as Dermafrac, to gently reduce the appearance of the striae over a series of treatments. Lasers promote synthesis of healthy, new collagen, which has been damaged when stretch marks appear. In this way, laser treatments can help restore the skin’s elasticity and also change the pigmentation so that the stretch marks are minimized.
