Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched too far over a prolonged period of time. When the collagen and elastin in the dermis breaks, the tears that are healed over time form scar tissue – also known as stretch marks. While stretch marks are commonly experienced by pregnant women, it can happen to anyone and can have a serious effect on a person’s self-esteem.

The treatment will use precision laser beams to target the damaged skin cells and stimulate the growth of new cells.
