Getting Rid of Stretch Marks

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

With pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss and hormones, just about all of end up with a few stretch marks here and there.’s

Early red stretch marks are more easily treated since the skin has not settled into as concentrated a scar. Stretch marks are actually tears in the dermis. The tear mends with scar tissue, but the skin above the tear tends to sink in, thus the white appearance as there is no “good” skin above it with melanin and blood vessels.

Fraxel re:store laser is proving to be a treatment to lessen the scar appearance. New collagen generation along with the body’s response to laser seems to diminish the severity of the mark.
