Removing Stretch Marks By Surgery: What You Need To Know

May 31, 2008
Striae, or what is most commonly know as stretch mark to most people, are some of the most annoying condition of the skin. This usually occurs when the body grows quickly, such as the case with gaining weight. The stretch marks are formed when the dermis cannot catch up or deal with the stretching, meaning its elasticity is not flexible enough to cope with the stretching. The dermis tears and wherever the skin has reddened is the area most likely that stretch marks will occur. If not prevented earlier, one has to the option of removing stretch marks by surgery.

Going Under The Laser

One of the easiest way of removing marks that do not involve you taking any prescription medicines is to go through laser surgery. This is similar to the laser surgery that is used to remove tattoos. It works by "cleaning and repairing" the dermis which is a layer just underneath your skin and where all the stretch marks form.

Painless - Laser treatment has become a very popular and painless way to get rid of stretch marks especially for women who have just had kids. Of course, this is a procedure that is not advisable for women who are still pregnant.

Why Use Laser Treatment?

Since laser surgery is a relatively new method for treatment, a lot of people might be skeptical of the procedure. But this surgery process is very safe and it is also quick.

The Process - A full procedure will only involve a few sittings on the patient's part. Also, this is a very cost-effective way to get rid of stretch marks. The best thing about it is that removing stretch marks by surgery involving a laser means getting rid of them forever. You will not have to worry about any side effects as there are none.

It's Really Inexpensive?

The Cost - The laser surgery procedure is certainly not cheap but it is a lot cheaper than it used to be a few years back. Also, you can count on the fact that there have been major improvements to the procedure since then. The price you pay will depend on the extent of surgery that you want or need. So the more stretch marks you have, the more chances that you will have more than just a couple of sittings to go through the process completely.

Is It Safe?

Laser surgery done by the right person is 100% safe. You cannot do this procedure on yourself unless you too are a professional. But the specialists who can operate the machines and have medical degrees can assure you absolute success and zero side effects. There are many unregistered clinics who also offer this treatment and sometimes for a lower price but you cannot trust those places if they do no have the license to operate.
