Stretch Mark Specialists FAQ in Hauppauge, NY

Do stretch marks mean your overweight?

Stretch marks are often caused by gaining weight rapidly over a short period of time. Avoiding rapid weight gain and weight loss can help prevent stretch marks. If you need to lose weight, you should do it slowly by: eating a healthy, balanced diet.

Can you professionally get rid of stretch marks?

Any permanent treatment for stretch marks will involve rebuilding healthy skin tissues beneath the scar and fading the appearance of the current scar. This can be done through exfoliating treatments or specialized laser treatments, including the laser stretch mark removal treatment system at our clinic.

What laser treatment is best for stretch marks?

Laser treatments remain the most effective non-surgical stretch mark treatment option. The ICON 1540 Fractional Laser is the only FDA-approved laser for the treatment of stretch marks. It is reported that patients see a 20 to 60 percent improvement in the appearance of stretch marks after a few sessions.

Does Bio-Oil work on stretch marks?

Bio-Oil helps to improve the appearance of existing stretch marks formed during pregnancy, teenage growth spurts or periods of rapid weight gain. Although it is more effective on newer stretch marks, older stretch marks will also show some improvement with regular use of Bio-Oil.

How can I reverse deep stretch marks?

Laser therapy. Lasers deliver focused light to the skin. Microdermabrasion. Microneedling. Radiofrequency therapy. Chemical peel.

How long until stretch marks are permanent?

In general, stretch marks take between six and 12 months to fade.

Is laser stretch mark removal painful?

Laser therapy for stretch mark removal usually lasts between 30 and 90 minutes, so you won’t be in the office for long. You might feel some slight discomfort during the procedure, but the treatment isn’t painful for most patients. Laser treatments require little recovery time, but you may experience some side effects.

Why do actresses not have stretch marks?

I can’t say they’ve ever bothered me, but I have always wondered that about celebs. Luck, genes, being very fit beforehand (strong stomach muscles = less likely to have a huge bump so less stretch on the skin) tummy tucks, many reasons really. Laser treatments can remove stretch marks.

How many laser sessions for stretch marks?

Minimum 6-7 sessions are required.

How do you stop stretch marks from growing?

Control your weight. One of the most helpful things you can do to prevent stretch marks, whether you’re pregnant or not, is to maintain a healthy weight. Stay hydrated. Eat a nutrient-rich diet. Include vitamin C in your diet. Soak up some vitamin D. Eat foods rich in zinc. Treat fresh stretch marks when they appear.

Is stretch mark curable?

Stretch marks don’t require treatment. They are harmless and often fade over time. Treatment can make them fade, but they may never completely disappear.

What permanently removes stretch marks?

Cosmetic surgery. If other treatments are unsuccessful, cosmetic surgery is an option. This expensive, yet effective, option can permanently remove white stretch marks from your body.

What dermatologist recommends stretch marks?

Derived from vitamin A, retinoids — such as tretinoin (Retin-A, Renova, Avita) — that you apply to your skin may improve the appearance of stretch marks less than a few months old. Tretinoin, when it works, helps to rebuild a protein in the skin called collagen, making the stretch marks look more like your normal skin.

Can I IPL my stretch marks?

IPL uses a specific wavelength of light to fade the reddish discoloration of stretch marks and also help to stimulate collagen to plump the skin. A series of IPL treatments can improve the appearance of pink or red stretch marks. IPL does not work for stretch marks that have faded with age to silver or white.

What are the stages of stretch marks?

The marks initially develop as wrinkly, raised streaks that can be red, purple, pink, reddish-brown or dark brown, depending on skin color. The streaks eventually fade and flatten and tend to change to a silvery color over time. Stretch marks may gradually become less noticeable, but this can often take years.
