Can Ultherapy help with stretch marks?

Ultherapy for stretch marks
Albany NY Ultherapy expert says Ultherapy is not currently approved as effective for Stretch Marks
Ultherapy is not currently approved as effective for Stretch Marks. Ultherapy can help with loose skin but stretch marks typically are due to loss of elastic fibers in skin and not to loss of collagen. I would be very busy indeed if there was anything available better than "cutting them out" for stretch marks. Lasers and other treatments can turn stretch marks from red to white color, but can not erase them.
Hope this helps!

Ultherapy is not FDA cleared for stretch marks
Thank you for your question.
The underlying mechanism for Ultherapy would suggest that it would help stretch marks, BUT, it is not FDA cleared for this indication. There is also no published data that suggests that it is useful for this indication.
