Stretch marks are long stripes or streaks that develop on the skin and have a different tone from the surrounding skin. They are the result of sudden stretching of skin and common during pregnancy or weight gain. The scarring happens when the skin cannot bounce back after a period of intense growth. Stretch marks can also appear after excessive and sudden weight loss, or after an acute trauma like an accident. They may change in colour from dark to a light or white lines, and can take a really long time to disappear or may even be permanent. Stretch marks are not a health risk but can be cosmetically unappealing.
New innovations in laser technologies have made it possible to resurface the skin, and remove these unsightly stretch marks. Our specialists will advise you on the procedures, recommended number of treatments and what to expect during a session.
