Laser Therapy for Stretch Marks: What to Know
Are you considering laser therapy for stretch marks? It’s no secret that the appearance of stretch marks can be frustrating, and fortunately, there are a variety of treatment options available to help diminish their appearance. Laser therapy is one such option that has increasingly grown in popularity over the past several years due to its relatively low risk profile and effectiveness when compared with other treatments.
In this blog post, we invite you to learn more about laser therapy for stretch marks as we discuss how it works and what it may involve.
How Does Laser Therapy for Stretch Marks Work?
Laser stretch mark removal is a minimally invasive method of treating stretch marks. During the treatment, a technician targets high-intensity lasers to the affected area. The deep penetration of the laser stimulates collagen growth in order to thicken and resurface dermal layers. This helps improve skin structure and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
What to Expect From Laser Therapy?
Laser therapy can be used to treat a variety of cosmetic conditions. Clients should expect the treatment to involve very brief but intense bursts of light which are absorbed by the cells after being applied over an area of skin.
There is usually a warming sensation during and following treatment. Other side effects may include discomfort, redness, or itching during and after treatment.
What is Venus Legacy?
Venus Legacy is a non-invasive skin and body contouring treatment that tightens, rejuvenates and smooths the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite. It uses advanced multi-polar radio frequency technology to deliver deep heat energy into the targeted area – resulting in collagen regrowth and increased blood circulation.
To further enhance results, Venus Legacy can also be combined with other treatments such as skin tightening or cellulite reduction for a more comprehensive approach to skin and body care.
What Is Venus Viva?
Venus Viva is a revolutionary non-surgical laser skin resurfacing solution, utilizing NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) technology for treating various skincare concerns.

It provides control over treatment depth in the epidermal and dermal skin layers, making it an effective method for reducing wrinkles, minimizing pore size, and improving texture.
