Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched to a point where its elasticity breaks down. As the injury heals, scar tissue develops creating a stretch mark. Stretch marks are most often caused by rapid weight gain, pregnancy, weightlifting and accelerated growth during adolescence. Stretch Marks can occur in both men and women and most commonly appear on the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, underarms, back, thighs, hips and buttocks. Stretch marks do not pose any health risks but can greatly impact one’s self confidence. Topical creams may help hydrate the area but they do not penetrate effectivly to show any real improvement.
At Radiance Medspa of Westchester we use Palomar Medical’s Fractional skin resurfacing laser, the latest generation of skin resurfacing technology to treat Stretch Marks.
Palomar’s 1540 Laser is the only one that has received FDA approval to be safe & effective for Stretch Marks.
