Stretch Marks Removal

You can reduce unwanted stretch marks using the latest laser technologies.

Stretch marks aren’t painful or harmful, but some people feel distressed about the way they make their skin look and laser stretch marks reduction is a solution for this skin issue.  

It is estimated that stretch marks occur in 90% of pregnant women, 70% of teens and 40% of athletes. The stretch marks appear around the abdomen, hips and thighs, upper arms and breasts.

They develop when the skin is stretched suddenly and the middle layer of your skin (the dermis) breaks in places, allowing the deeper layers to show through. In pregnancy this happens when your body grows faster than your skin can keep up with.
