Unfortunately stretch marks cannot be removed by any non-surgical method. The only way they can be removed is through surgery. Stretch marks are caused because the skin is stretched beyond its capacity to recoil. Its like a rubber band that is over stretched and can never regain its original shortened length. The dimpling on the other hand is cellulitis and that is cause by fibours bands that tether the skin. Recenly the FDA approved Cellulaze for the treatment of cellulite. Visit with a plastic surgeon to see if you are a candidate.

I have been using the PALOMAR STARLUX 500 with the 1540 LUX hand piece which is a non-ablative erbium laser and have had good results! Remember you can not eliminate stretch marks but you can improve there appearance!

 

Good luck!
