FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The Dr. Nassif Iconic Stretch Mark Laser is the next generation solution for the treatment of stretch marks due to its multi modal features. The dual technology enables us to treat both purple/red (erythema) and white (striae alba) stretch marks as well as treating any textural irregularities.
The laser delivers impulses of energy that target and heat stretch marks while preserving the surrounding skin. This thermal action stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by the body, which will then improve the texture and colour of the skin so as to remove stretch marks
White/silver stretch marks (striae alba) are least responsive to treatment as so much of the collagen and elastin has previously broken down. However, with a course of treatments, unlike other lasers, you will see an improvement but it is not likely to remove them entirely.
Depending on the size and age of the stretch marks, treatments can take about 15 mins. We recommend 4-6 treatments, 6 weeks apart
The advancement in technology of the Dr. Nassif Iconic Laser means we can perform multiple treatments with minimal side effects and little downtime. Post treatment you may be red around the treated area for several days and skin can feel rough. We advise to ice the area and to moisturise whilst the skin is healing.
Collagen production following the treatment can take approximately two weeks which is when you will begin to see results. This will improve the texture and colour of the skin so as to remove stretch marks. You will see an improvement in texture and brightness and general appearance of the skin as well.
Our fractional resurfacing non ablative laser with erbium glass fibre for the treatment of stretch marks uses 2 types of laser in one session. One treats deep into the skin to kick start healing from the inside. The second treats the surface of the skin to improve the appearance and texture of the stretch mark. It is quick and targeted gentle yet very successful which is why there is not as, much extreme downtime as other lasers that damage the skin surface.
We recommend 4-6 treatments approximately 6 weeks apart for optimal results.
