When it comes to bathing suit season (not too far away!), are you confident in swimwear? For many women, stretchmarks on the body are cause for concern. However, with today’s advanced aesthetic procedures, stretchmarks can be dramatically reduced so that you feel your most confident.

Keep reading to learn more about the Cynosure ICON Laser, a noninvasive procedure for treating stretchmarks.

Cynosure ICON Laser

Dr. Andrew Lofman and his medical staff are proud to be experts in the Cynosure ICON Laser, which can, among other things, address stretchmarks on the body.

Stretchmarks are a common problem among women and occur when skin stretches considerably over a short duration, like during pregnancy. The result is lines on the skin that are discolored. This can also occur if significant weight gain or loss happens.

Our ICON laser treats stretchmarks utilizing fractional laser technology that delivers pulsed energy into your skin, targeting the discoloration that comes with stretchmarks and stimulating collagen production to enhance the tone and smoothness of your skin. Following your treatments, stretchmarks slowly disappear via the body’s own healing process.

The benefit of the ICON laser for stretchmarks is that there is no downtime and minimal discomfort. It is also noninvasive so that you can achieve gorgeous skin without surgery. Further, your procedure can be performed in as little as a half hour. You may experience some redness in the treated area, which is normal, however, after your treatment you can return to your normal daily activities.

Most patients will require several treatments to achieve maximum results. A consultation will determine which treatment plan is right for you.
