Stretch Mark Treatment

The Dr. Nassif Iconic Stretch Mark Laser is the next generation solution for the treatment of stretch marks, due to its multi modal features. Its innovative technology enables us to treat both red / purple (erythema) and white (striae alba) stretch marks as well as any textural irregularities.

Stretch marks can appear on the skin when it has been rapidly stretched or shrunk back over a short space of time, usually in cases of weight gain / weight loss, pregnancy and change in body shape during puberty. They can appear anywhere on the body, but mainly affect the stomach, hips, thighs and breasts.

When you attend a pre-treatment consultation at Nassif MedSpa a detailed assessment will determine the course of action that will be recommended to obtain the most successful result. Your aesthetic professional will help you to understand what can be achieved from a laser treatment, which may not totally remove your stretch marks but can significantly improve their appearance.

The Dr. Nassif Iconic Stretch Mark laser is a fractional, resurfacing, non-ablative laser with erbium glass fibre, that uses 2 types of laser during 1 session. It works on both the surface layer of the skin, as well as deep within the dermis, delivering impulses of energy that target and heat the stretch marks without causing any damage to the surrounding skin and tissues. The thermal action stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by the body, which helps to improve the texture and colour of the skin.

We often recommend a course of 4 – 6 treatments, performed approximately 6 weeks apart, for optimal results. It is important to understand that this procedure is most effective on less mature stretch marks (red / purple) as, compared to the white / silvery coloured marks, less of the collagen and elastin has previously broken down.

FAQs

Am I suitable for stretch mark treatment?

This treatment can work to significantly reduce the noticeable appearance of stretch marks on various areas of the body. Best results are seen after a series of treatments and are most effective when the stretch marks are still in their fairly early stages – when they are red / purple in colour. A consultation will outline the best course of action, according to your individual concerns, and can help you to understand the realistic outcome that can be achieved.

Is this treatment safe?

This treatment should always be performed by a practitioner who is trained and experienced. This will ensure that the procedure is delivered and carried out in a safe manner, and is more likely to achieve the end result you desire. All procedures at Nassif MedSpa are medically approved and scientifically proven for safety.

Will it hurt?

This treatment typically doesn’t produce a painful experience. Most people find this procedure is very tolerable, only feeling some very mild discomfort as the skin and tissues are heated. This is monitored throughout the treatment and your aesthetic professional will take every step to ensure you feel comfortable and at ease.

Are there any side effects or risks?

It is normal for your skin to feel sensitive, immediately following the treatment. In the days that follow, your skin may look red and feel a little rough for which we advise that you ice the area and apply a moisturiser to the skin. You can also expect the treated area to scab over before the new, smoother tissue is revealed.

How much downtime can I expect?

Any redness and / or sensitivity will have subsided within a few hours and does not usually cause a prolonged period of downtime. The results are often visible within 2 weeks, as the skin becomes more even in texture, as well as the overall tone looking brighter.
