Laser stretch mark removal starts from $799 per treatment, $2,199 for a three-treatment package and $2,999 for a six-treatment package. Pricing varies based on the technology used and package chosen. This will be discussed during your initial consultation.
There is little to no recovery following stretch mark treatment and reduction. Most patients return to regular activities the following day, but it can take 1-2 weeks to resume high-impact aerobic activities, depending on the treatment area.
Each stretch mark treatment takes approximately 45-60 minutes. Treatments are required, once every 4-6 weeks.
Laser stretch mark removal treatment is a new, non-surgical treatment program that can effectively reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the breasts, hips, thighs, arms, abdomen, buttocks, and back.
Just because stretch marks are a normal part of life, it doesn’t mean you have to live with them. In just a few simple treatments, the laser stretch mark reduction program allows men and women to achieve the more clear, smoother, touchable skin they have not had for a long time.
Laser stretch mark removal is a beneficial treatment program for men and women who would like to reduce and remove unsightly stretch marks. Good candidates for laser stretch mark removal are realistic about the results to expect and would prefer non-surgical treatment. Traditionally, those with a darker skin type would not have been a good candidate, however, SpaMedica has acquired and developed many fractional devices and under the skin “bottom-up” thermal devices that can safely and effectively treat the stretch marks of darker-skinned patients.
Reduce the Appearance of Stretch Marks
The quick and pain-free treatment can greatly reduce the appearance of unattractive stretch marks, both red and white.
Restore your body confidence and show off your new look in all the clothing you previously shied away from.
Unlike at-home treatment, patients will see noticeable results at the end of the program.
The non-invasive nature means patients can immediately resume regular activities after a treatment session.
Redness in the stretch mark area will subside after a couple of days.
Swelling in the stretch mark area will subside after a couple of days.
Blistering that can lead to scarring is avoided by using a reputable, experienced surgeon.
Extremely rare and avoided by our thorough initial consultation.
Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica continue to be at the forefront of pioneering new technologies that improve the appearance of stretch marks. In selecting SpaMedica, you are getting the best possible expertise and technology used in combination to give you the best possible stretch mark reduction.
Fractional lasers, microneedling and Fractional RF devices are other stretch mark treatment and reduction options. At SpaMedica, we have several different stretch mark reduction lasers and RF systems that can be used or combined to ensure you get the best results
At SpaMedica, there are numerous different technologies that can be used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Patients will generally receive a combination of treatments that work from both underneath and above with collagen-forming and skin-tightening technology and fractional resurfacing technology.
White Stretch Marks
There are two revolutionary approaches to treating white stretch marks at SpaMedica: the top-down and bottom-up.
The “top-down” approach uses fractional laser and radiofrequency devices to create small columns of injured tissue from the top down to the skin. The devices leave some of the stretch marks untreated, allowing for a reservoir of tissue to produce new collagen and new elastin to smooth the appearance of the wrinkly, white stretch mark.
The “bottom-up” approach uses under-the-skin heating devices to stimulate new collagen and elastin to tighten the stretch mark. Devices such as the Accutite and FaceTite will smoothen and tighten the stretch marks from their undersurface.
The blend of “top-down” and “bottom-up” approaches gives the best possible improvement that one can achieve without any invasive surgery.
Purple and Red Stretch Marks
Marks that are still red or purple in colour are first treated with vascular lasers. The vascular lasers deployed at SpaMedica include a wide range of options to give patients the best possible reduction and include IPL, Intense Pulsed Light and Pulsed Dye lasers.
A thin layer of ultrasound gel is placed on the skin and the pink and purple vessels are treated with the flash of laser and light. The treatments are comfortable and are performed as an outpatient procedure under topical anesthesia.
Vascular laser treatment is usually performed once every 3-4 weeks, over a series of 4-6 treatments. Once the red or purple is removed or reduced, the stretch mark can enter into the white stretch mark treatment program.
The treatment will often induce a bruise in the target area, so red marks can appear darker for 1-2 weeks before they start fading. The patient might experience some temporary redness and swelling of the stretch marks for a couple of days but can immediately return to regular activities.
The new approaches to laser stretch mark removal (treating from above and below) sees a 30- 75% improvement in red, white, or silvery mature stretch marks after a series of treatments. Patients usually require 4-6 sessions over a four to six month period.
The improvement in stretch mark appearance from the program should last one or more years. In order to indefinitely maintain the improved appearance, a simple maintenance program with a fractional radiofrequency or laser device is recommended once every 4-6 months.
Topical anesthesia makes the “top-down” treatment of red and white stretch marks comfortable. The “bottom-up” approach, performed under local anesthesia, is also very comfortable once the local anesthetic has been instilled. Pronox (nitrous oxide laughing gas) is offered to ensure all treatments are very comfortable.
Yes, the SpaMedica laser stretch mark removal program can be used to treat white and red/purple stretch marks in various body areas.
Commonly found around the breasts, hips, thighs, arms, abdomen, buttocks, and back, stretch marks are areas of skin that have been stretched beyond the skin’s elastic recoil potential and the skin forms an “internal scar”, which become the stretch mark.
The most common cause is the rapid growth of the skin which can result from pregnancy, weight loss, weight gain, pubertal growth spurts, growth of breast tissue, or even from weight training.
