I have had stretch marks for as long as I can remember, my weight went up and down so many times in my teen years, and I had a lot more stretch marks while I was pregnant with my twins. Some have faded away but some have refused to go. I have tried everything humanly possible, Bio Oil, Cocoa Butter and the works, but these stubborn stretch marks have refused to go away.
I remember my pregnancy days, I tried everything in the book to avoid having more strech marks, I didn’t scratch my bump, even though I was dying to, I applied cocoa butter everyday on my bump and I didn’t eat for three, but I still got the dreaded stretch marks.
Now, these marks do not worry me as such as they are usually covered and barely visible, but it would be lovely to get rid of them all for good. I have recently read about laser removal treatments for stretch marks and it has given me hope, hope that one sweet day, my body will be smooth and free from stretch marks.
The laser removal treatment works using a fractional laser technology, short pulses of laser energy are delivered to the skin – specifically targeting the stretch marks. The laser stimulates the production of new collagen to smooth out the skin and improve discolouration.
This laser treatment is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure. It is very quick, you will start to notice a difference in your skin after about 3-5 sessions, and it usually take about 30 minutes for each session. Also, you likely won’t require a downtime or bed rest, you can carry on as normal immediately after the treatment. The laser treatment can work on any skin type, and all stretch marks, no matter the cause, and the final results are fantastic.
I am looking forward to trying this out for myself. Do you have stretch marks that bother you? Have you heard of this laser treatment before? Drop me a comment, let’s chat. Thanks for reading.
