Stretch marks are very common, but that may not make you feel any less self-conscious about them. The experienced team at D’Allure Medspa in Dallas can help you get rid of your stretch marks with the versatile Icon™ laser aesthetic system. For a consultation, call the office today or request an appointment online.
A stretch mark is a scar that develops if your skin has stretched or shrunk too quickly, causing your collagen and elastin to rupture. As the skin heals, it creates elongated scars.
Initially, your scar may be red or purple, raised, and itchy. But as time passes, your scar turns white and sinks underneath your skin.
The Icon laser is an advanced aesthetic tool that combines two laser technologies to fix a variety of skin flaws.
The lasers include:
The IPL laser uses pulsed light at varying wavelengths to target the deeper layers of your skin. The team uses IPL to treat a wide range of skin concerns, including discoloration, spider veins, and skin texture issues.
The Fractional 1540 is a nonablative laser that gently heats the deep layers of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen, which is the protein that gives your skin its firmness and youthful look.
The Icon laser is also equipped with SkinTel™, a technology that has the ability to read the melanin in your skin, making it a safe laser to use on all skin types.
You should expect relatively short treatments that cause little to no pain when getting treatment with the Icon laser for your stretch marks. Your specialist at D’Allure Medspa creates a treatment plan based on your specific needs and aesthetic goals so you know what to expect before getting started. For the most effective results, your specialist may recommend a series of treatments.
During your treatment, the pulses of energy target the scar tissue and break it apart, while at the same time triggering the production of collagen to replace the scar tissue with new, healthier skin.
There’s no downtime following your treatment, so you can return to your usual activities afterward. You should start to notice an improvement in your appearance of stretch marks within six weeks after treatment.
