What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks (striae distensa) are the streaky lines that develop on the skin, especially on the abdomen and legs. They are caused by the rapid expansion of skin, usually during pregnancy or weight fluctuation. This sudden stretching of the skin results in the tearing of the dermis (below the surface of the skin). These marks are notoriously difficult to treat, but thanks to laser technology, stretch marks can be repaired without causing further damage to the skin.
How can Well Integrative Medicine help me?
If you want to reduce those streaky lines from your stomach or legs, schedule a consultation at Well Integrative Medicine. We provide non-invasive treatments, and we can help you get back to healthy, clear skin. Icon IPL therapy is one of the most effective treatments for stretch mark reduction. The Icon laser system combines a fractional laser (ablative) and intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. This FDA-approved technology requires fewer treatments and delivers more immediate results than similar devices. It is also one of the safest lasers on the market.
