Stretch Marks Specialist

Stretch marks are very common, but they make many people feel self-conscious. Fortunately, there are effective treatments that can drastically improve the appearance of stretch marks. Rapid Laser Med Spa offers powerful treatments for stretch marks including the ResurFX treatment using the Lumenis M22- helping men and women from the greater Las Vegas area feel great about their skin again. And online scheduling makes it easy to find an appointment time to fit your busy life.

Lumenis ResurFX Laser

One of the most exciting treatment options for stretch marks is the Lumenis® ResurFX™. This powerful laser technology creates amazing results with minimal recovery time.

The Lumenis ResurFX can help

  • Skin discoloration
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Loose or sagging skin

Because ResurFX uses fractional laser technology, it only affects a portion of the skin. That allows your aesthetician to target the areas that need treatment, yet leave the surrounding tissues and cells unaffected.

ResurFX is a non-ablative laser, which means the treatment stimulates your skin to produce more collagen without causing damage to your cells. Increased collagen plumps the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Stretch Marks Q & A

What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks occur when your body grows faster than your skin can regenerate to accommodate the growth. When your skin stretches, long, thin lines appear. Stretch marks are often a dark red or purple color that eventually fades to white.

These are some common conditions that cause stretch marks:

  • Growth spurts during puberty
  • Pregnancy
  • Sudden weight gain
  • Bodybuilding
  • Breast implants
  • Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder

Can microdermabrasion help with stretch marks?

Microdermabrasion is a treatment using a carefully-controlled stream of tiny crystals to blast away the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin. Research indicates that microdermabrasion can be an efficient way to treat newly developed stretch marks before they turn white.

Microdermabrasion is most effective when combined with professional skin peels.

What are some other treatment options for stretch marks?

Plastic surgery is one way to address stretch marks. This approach involves the surgical removal of affected skin.

Surgery can be a good fit for men and women who’ve lost a substantial amount of weight and have excess skin with lots of stretch marks. However, there are risks associated with any surgical procedure, and many people prefer to take a less invasive approach to improving their skin.
