Stretch Mark Treatment
Stretch marks can occur as the result of weight gain or pregnancy, or they can appear seemingly out of nowhere. And when they develop, they can have a dramatic impact on your appearance, causing you to appear softer and less toned than you really are. We’re committed to helping our clients eliminate these stubborn marks, restoring the smooth and contoured appearance they desire.
Our Personalized Approach To Stretch Mark Removal
Though we have a couple state-of-the-art treatment options available to help remove stretch marks at Bayou City Dermatology, we know that everyone’s body is unique and no single procedure is best for every client. As such, we get to know you on a personal level during your initial consultation and throughout the treatment process. We evaluate the condition of your skin and learn as much as we can about you, to ensure we resolve your issue in the most effective way possible. Depending on what we learn, we may recommend a single treatment option or a more involved, multi-step regimen that also involves lifestyle changes to ensure optimal results. Regardless of the treatment we ultimately decide on, you can be assured that it will be completely tailored to your unique needs, ensuring an ideal outcome that’s perfect for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Causes Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are caused when your skin stretches faster than your body can produce collagen, resulting in tiny tears. As these tears heal, the scars that develop are what we know as stretch marks. The most common causes of stretch marks include: Pregnancy, Weight Gain & Certain Medications
What Are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks are a common cosmetic concern that can develop in nearly anyone. Resembling indented streaks in the skin, they are often found around the abdomen, breasts, buttocks, hips, and thighs. Stretch marks can often appear in red, blue, purple, pink, or black in color and can cover large regions of the body.
What To Expect During Stretch Mark Treatment?
To begin your stretch mark removal, we will apply a numbing cream to the target area to ensure that your treatment is as pleasant and comfortable as possible. From there, we will move the laser over your skin, encouraging fresh skin cells to grow and replace your stretch marks. This is accomplished without doing any damage to your surrounding skin, ensuring a comfortable procedure, a non-existent recovery period and very few risks.
Does Pregnancy Cause Stretch Marks?
A natural part of childbearing, most women develop stretch marks at some point during their pregnancy. The most common location is on the abdomen to accommodate the baby, as well as the buttocks, thighs, hips and breasts.
Can My Medication Cause Stretch Marks?
There are a few medications that we know are associated with the development of stretch marks. They include corticosteroid creams and long-term steroid use.
What To Expect After Stretch Mark Treatment?
Though it’s normal to experience some temporary redness and swelling in the treatment area after your session, it won’t prevent you from resuming your normal daily routine immediately. Depending on the severity of your stretch marks and the quality of your skin, you may see a visible improvement after just one session – or you may require additional treatments to achieve optimal results.
