Step 3: Skin Tightening
The third part of the treatment targets the larger surface of the treatment area. Thermal laser energy is delivered superficially to increase the production of collagen and elastin. This reduces laxity in the skin by inducing neocollagenesis.
What Are Treatments Like?
Treatments are generally well tolerated by patients. Numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to the treatment to help alleviate any heat or discomfort that patients may experience during any of the 3 steps involved in Toronto Fotona stretch mark removal treatments. Patients may experience sharp sensations like stinging during the second step of the treatment, and the final skin-tightening step can generate mild heat in the skin. Patients can expect their skin to feel like a sunburn for the next day or two.
How Many Treatments Are Required to See Results?
Fotona stretch mark-reduction treatments are prescribed as a scar-reduction program based on the patient’s stretch mark history, age, and other important factors that are considered when establishing a scar reduction treatment plan. Treatments are recommended every 2 to 3 weeks, with most patients requiring a series of about 6 treatments. Advanced medical-grade cosmetic products can substantially improve results with beneficial components to the healing and remodeling of the stretch marks on the skin.
