Laser stretch mark removal – before and after

Stretch marks are particularly common after pregnancy – nearly three in four women will develop them on their legs, stomach, hips, breasts and other areas of the body in which they may gain weight while pregnant. But why does it happen?

During pregnancy, the skin expands quickly and is stretched to its limit, which causes tears in the dermis (the middle, most elastic layer of the skin). These tears form scars that appear initially as reddish, purplish stripes and eventually fade to silvery grey marks. While they’re physically painless, stretch marks can have a serious effect on the self-esteem and many people are desperate to get rid of them. Read on for what to expect from laser stretch mark removal – before and after.
