Stretch Mark and Scar Reduction Q & A

Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center

What is intense pulsed light (IPL) laser therapy?

Traditional lasers use a single wavelength (color) of light to treat skin problems, while IPL uses a broad spectrum of wavelengths. The IPL is a far more versatile form of laser therapy, allowing the technician to treat numerous skin problems, such as stretch marks and scarring, by choosing from several filters that will address the condition you want to be treated.

IPL therapy is also noninvasive and protects the surrounding skin and tissue thanks to its precision technology. For more information on IPL therapy, and the Icon® laser that delivers it, contact Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center.

How do laser treatments work to correct stretch marks?

Stretch marks happen when your skin is stretched to a point where it breaks down and doesn’t bounce back, leaving behind lines and marks. Stretch marks can occur in both men and women and are primarily caused by:

  • Pregnancy
  • Extreme weight gain or loss
  • Sudden growth

With the Icon laser, the technicians at Park Slope Laser Aesthetic Center can target these marks with a pulsed light laser therapy that goes deep into the sub-layers of your skin and causes collagen and elastin to respond and promote new, healthy growth. The laser treatment not only tackles the ridges or marks that characterize stretch marks, it’s also effective on the discoloration that often accompanies the marks.

How does IPL work at correcting scarring?

When any part of the tissue in your skin is injured, your body will naturally produce collagen fibers to heal the area. This collagen is thicker because it is a trauma-healing response and produces what you know as scarring, which usually takes on three forms:

  • Flat and slightly discolored, the most common kind
  • Raised scar, which occurs when too much scar tissue is produced
  • Sunken scars, such as acne scars, which mark the absence of the underlying structure in the skin

Icon laser therapy successfully targets and addresses all scarring by going deep under the skin, treating the supporting structure. By causing intentional damage to this structure, the body will naturally flush away the damaged tissue and begin collagen and elastin production for new, more normal-looking skin.
