To treat ugly stretch marks left behind by pregnancy and weight gain or loss, we offer The Mercury Arc Plus and Fraxel Laser Treatment.
The Mercury Arc Plus utilizes two technologies: the Mercury Arc Lamp emission for restoring pigmentation and the N-Lite laser for improving texture. We are currently using this combined approach and are experiencing good preliminary results at a fairly moderate, affordable cost to our patients. A recent addition of the Xtrac laser provides an additional technology for the treatment of stretch marks.
Fraxel® Laser Treatment is one of the major advances in non-invasive cosmetic technology in the past 10 years. It became available in 2005 and we have been performing this laser skin rejuvenation treatment at our Beverly Hills, Los Angeles office since early 2006. It is a revolutionary and effective treatment for the following: wrinkles, uneven color and tone, texture irregularities from sun damage and aging, crepiness, and loose skin.
The Fraxel laser is also proving to be the most effective technology yet developed for the treatment of stretch marks. No downtime is involved and gradual improvement is noted in texture and color. Collagen is both increased and remodeled due to the treatment.
