Stretch marks are caused by rapid stretching of the skin quite often seen after rapid weight gain or loss.
Millions of women have stretch marks, as it’s common after pregnancy. Some women feel embarrassment at the appearance of stretch marks and feel the need to cover up.
Up until recently, there were not a lot of options to treat stretch marks.
Fractional laser has changed this and Australian Skin Face Body now offers treatments for stretch marks resulting in smoother, better looking skin.
Stretch marks are actually scars and initially present as purple lines. When stretch mark get older, they often turn white and these are much harder to treat.

There are limited treatment options available to treat stretch marks, only being able to reduce the appearance of the markings.
Here at ASFB we can offer some guidance and help in treating and reducing the appearance of stretch marks
If the stretch marks are quite fresh and red/purple in colour; this is the best time to treat, by using the Vascular laser we can fade the redness, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing mark
If the marks are already faded and silver colouring, skin needling is the best option to try to break up the scar tissue.
