The Lumenis Photofractional™ for Stretch Marks

A non-invasive method for noticeably improving the appearance of stretch marks on thighs, buttocks, abdomen and chest. Our unique technology includes two solutions, IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and ResurFX non-ablative skin resurfacing, so that both skin tone and texture can be treated at the same session.

How does it work?

Lumenis® IPL technology removes unwanted pigment from the skin, while the ResurFX™ fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a smoother looking skin.

The treatment: to ensure utmost comfort, your esthetician should typically apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.

What should I expect?

After procedure, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will usually diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. We advise our patient to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sunscreen.

The Lumenis® Photofractional™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. The result is a visible smoothening of the affected stretch mark area and an improvement in the discoloration. Already after the first session, you may begin to notice improvement.

Typically, 3-5 sessions in 2-6 weeks intervals are needed to obtain optimal results. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
