Stretch marks can develop when you grow or gain or lose weight quickly and your skin stretches or shrinks to accommodate the change. Many women develop stretch marks during pregnancy, but both men and women can develop stretch marks from changes in weight or growth spurts during puberty.
Stretch mark creams can make your skin feel smooth, and they might even temporarily plump up the skin. However, no cream can truly eliminate stretch marks. For that, you need advanced technology that's only available from a qualified medical care provider like Dr. Jeng at Beau MedSpa.
Dr. Jeng performs all evaluations before he begins an effective treatment for your stretch marks.
With stretch marks, there are two main issues: discoloration and volume loss. Beau MedSpa has effective solutions for both.
Stretch marks may be red, pink, or purple. No matter what color they are, the discoloration is the problem and intense pulsed light, or IPL therapy can be very effective for reducing or eliminating discoloration.
The depressions you see in stretch marks happen because your body's natural collagen is broken down in that area. The ICON laser can prompt your body to start making new collagen and elastin, which replaces the old collagen and helps smooth out stretch marks. ICON also targets stretch mark discoloration, so it's a good choice if you have both volume loss and discoloration.
Dr. Jeng discusses your stretch mark concerns with you to determine what the best approach may be.
It depends on your stretch marks and how your body responds to treatment. Most patients get the best results with a series of treatments. This could mean anywhere from 3-12 treatments. You schedule every treatment at least a month apart so you have time to see the improvements before deciding whether you need further treatment sessions.
