Stretch Mark Removal

Stretch mark removalStretch marks are very common and can affect both men and women to varying degrees. They are generally associated with gaining and then losing weight. The most common cause is pregnancy and for some women they can be quite visible.

They generally appear around the stomach, breast or thigh area and the marks can be various different colours such as red, white, purple or silver. If they are particularly noticeable it may affect people's confidence for wearing certain types of clothes and swim wear.

The treatment for stretch marks has improved over recent years and there are now quite a few options available to you.

The options you can choose from are as follows:

  • Laser stretch mark removal: This is a recent development and depending on the type of scar, the results can be impressive. The treatment however is expensive and often requires multiple sessions. You can read more about the cost in our laser stretch mark removal cost guide.
  • Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a skin exfoliating treatment which effectively removes the top layer of skin and stimulates the skin below to regenerate. The procedure is less expensive than laser stretch mark removal but it is generally only used to treat superficial stretch marks.
  • Surgical removal of stretch marks: This is an even more expensive procedure and is normally carried out under a general anaesthetic, meaning the recovery time is longer. This type of stretch mark removal is only really considered if you have not responded well to the other non-invasive treatments.
  • Stretch mark removal creams: These can treat mild stretch marks but they have to be applied regularly and over a long period of time. They are also used as a preventative measure to stop stretch marks occurring.

In summary stretch mark removal treatments have improved over recent years and there are now quite a few options available. Although they rarely completely free you of your stretch marks they can improve the appearance considerably.
