Laser Stretch Mark Removal

Bellair Laser Clinic is the leading provider of Fraxel treatments in Canada. We call the Fraxel® Laser the stretch mark eraser since you will notice your stretch marks transform or diminish. Fraxel® resurfaces the skin texture and complexion by producing thousands of tiny deep microscopic columns in the skin which are referred to as microscopic treatment zones (MTZ). These tiny treatment zones are surrounded by uninjured tissue. In other words, only a fraction of the skin is targeted, therefore, the skin is left intact which allows for quick wound healing. This treatment results in rapid re-epithelialization, eliminating old epidermal pigmented cells, while penetrating the deeper dermis dramatically reducing stretch marks.

Each Fraxel® treatment targets 20% to 25% of the skin’s surface. The number of treatments recommended is anywhere between 3 to 10 sessions depending on your skin concern and the severity of the condition and depending on whether your treatment plan consists of other treatments such as carboxytherapy or PRP. Combination therapy usually gaurantees the best results possible. Normally treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart and optimal results are visible in approximately 2-3 months post-treatment.

The Fraxel Procedure

On the day of treatment, topical numbing is left on the skin for approximately one hour prior to the treatment. The actual laser treatment is approximately 20 minutes. During the actual treatment you will feel a warm prickling sensation on the skin which most clients describe as tolerable. Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm which is comparable to a mild sunburn for 1 to 2 hours post-treatment. Redness and swelling is common, however, the degree of redness and swelling will vary from individual to individual. This reaction or pinkness will persist anywhere between three to five days which will be accompanied by bronzing (the skin will have a bronze appearance for 3 to 14 days) and flaking of the skin. Normally a moisturizing cream will minimize the appearance of flaking or peeling. While the skin regenerates and flakes, sunscreen should be applied on a daily basis to protect against sun exposure during the healing process.

NOTE: Individual Results May Vary

Fraxel For Stretch Marks FAQs

Post treatment, erythema or redness is normally along with some slight swelling on the skin. The skin may feel very warm for a few hours post treatment. A cold compress may be applied to the skin to sooth the area immediately after treatment. Over the next few days you may notice a bronzing on the skin which is the coagulated areas surfacing. Flaking or granular peeling is common post treatment.
The number of treatments required varies depending on the severity of the condition. Those with severe scarring or deep wrinkles may require 3 to 6 treatments or more. Treatment intervals are 6-8 weeks apart.
Your skin will benefit from every Fraxel treatment. Different degrees of improvement are typically visible after every treatment. Since the treatment deals with collagen building and re-modelling, it does take time to see the full benefit of a single treatment. This time varies anywhere from 2 to 4 months.
Fraxel is one of the only lasers for acne/collagen remodelling which is FDA approved for all skin types. Since Fraxel is a fractional technology meaning we do not treat the entire surface of the skin, there is less trauma on the skin and your body is able to repair the area safely and quickly. We may recommend pre-treating the skin with a HQ which would ensure the safest and most aggressive treatment possible.
