Stretch Marks and Treatments
Stretch marks are difficult to treat. Stretch marks are similar to a scar in the skin. The eMatrix laser has the best success rate of any of the lasers that I have used and can be used in all skin types. If the stretch marks are just red, then the V-Beam laser is my preferred treatment. For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with these cosmetic lasers.
Stretch Mark Treatment -- Eclipse Micropen, PRP, Sublative/Viva, Fraxel/Clear+Brilliant
There are many options for improvement but no "cure" for stretch marks. If they are red, Vbeam or Excel V laser can help. If they are older and stretched/white, then treatments/procedures such as microneedling, lasers or radiofrequency devices can help build collagen and give improvement. I suggest a cosmetic dermatologist with experience in the treatment of scars and who is an expert in lasers and fillers. Best, Dr. Emer.
