Do you have stretch marks?
Whenever and however you acquired them, stretch marks are something you could certainly live without. You may have tried topical solutions to no avail. But with treatments that provide skin resurfacing and lead to new skin growth, we offer an effective solution that can significantly minimize the appearance of new and old stretch marks on any area of the body. We utilize the Fraxel laser as well as our proprietary treatment The Eraser to tackle red, white, and purple stretch marks. While no treatment can completely eliminate stretch marks, we can reduce this special type of scarring enough that you might be the only one who knows they are there.
Your Solution to Stretch Marks may include:

Frequently Asked Questions
How much improvement to my stretch marks can I expect?
While no treatment can completely eliminate or remove stretch marks, The Eraser can significantly improve the appearance of red, white, and purple stretch marks. In some cases, the stretch marks may even become difficult to see. We find that the skin rejuvenating effects of The Eraser work well on many types of scarring including stretch marks.
How many treatments will I need?
Your treatment plan will be determined by the appearance of your stretch marks. We typically recommend 4 to 6 treatments to achieve full results.
When will I see my results from my treatments?
You will begin to see results from these solutions to stretch marks within a week following treatment with clear results appearing by four weeks. Because these collagen-stimulating treatments cause your body to naturally heal itself over time, you may continue to see improvement for up to a year.
Are results permanent?
Yes, as long as you maintain your skin’s moisture and wear sunblock on exposed, treated areas, your results should last a lifetime. However, you will still have the ability to make new stretch marks.
I’ve had my stretch marks for more than 20 years – can you still treat them?
Yes, these treatments encourage the body produce collagen and healing effects from below. New tissue will be created so that even old stretch marks are improved.
Do these treatments hurt?
You may experience some discomfort during either treatment. The sensation of a Fraxel laser treatment has been described as an intense prickling. We can apply a topical numbing cream if desired. You can also take an oral painkiller, and we can prescribe one for you if needed. The depth of the needling during The Eraser treatment is adjusted based on the severity of your stretch marks. For treatments with shorter needles, only a slight sensation will be felt – similar to a tickle. When longer needles are required, a numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort.
Is there any downtime following these treatments for stretch marks?
There is little to no real downtime with The Eraser treatment. You may experience sunburn-like redness and/or mild swelling on treated areas for a few days. You should treat your skin gently for the next week or two by avoiding sunlight and using mild products. Fraxel treatments require more post-treatment care. Your skin will be sensitive and will need to be protected from the sun for about 4 weeks. Any swelling will be minimal and can be treated with cold compresses.
Are these treatments appropriate from all skin types?
There is a risk of hyperpigmentation when using Fraxel on dark skin. In this case, we may recommend The Eraser, which is safe and effective for all skin tones and types. With The Eraser, there is less likelihood of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
