Treating Stretch Marks, Acne Scars and Fine Lines
By Gabriella, Laser Technician and Aesthecian at SKIN Clinics
From late night infomercials, to drug store creams, there are an endless number of products on the market claiming to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and acne scars. Almost all of them claim near-miraculous results but most leave the consumer feeling disappointed.
Photo fractional laser, better known as resurFX, is backed by science, not a C list celebrity pushing it on late night TV. Clinical trials have clearly demonstrated that it actually works. It is able to diminish the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, and it can treat multiple skin conditions in a single visit.
How does it work? A non-ablative photo fractional laser penetrates deep into the layers of the skin, targeting water. As water is found between our collagen and elastin fibers, it uses this target to reach deep in the layers of the skin, essentially giving the skin another chance to heal itself. Laser microbeams heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating the collagen and elastin fibres. When this happens, more collagen and elastin is produced, filling in any irregular texture such as stretch marks, scars, and wrinkles. This results in a softer, smoother surface.
It is so assuring to know that we can improve these scars, especially when we know it is safe to do so. Photo fractional laser is clinically proven to safely remove these scars, and is trusted by leading professionals worldwide. There are a lot of lasers on the market that make similar claims, but not all lasers are created equal, and the resurFX is considered the best.
Treatments are comfortable, and fast.
