You Deserve to Feel Your Best: Stretch Mark & Scar Reduction Q & A

How can I reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars?

Advancements in laser technology make it possible for you to get the smooth, even, unblemished skin you’ve always wanted. 

Here at Heights Aesthetic Laser Center our team combines two different Lutronic® Aesthetic laser treatments to help you get rid of scars and stretch marks. Both of these treatments can be used to address stretch marks and scars anywhere on your body, including your face. 

Genius™

This treatment of radiofrequency (RF) microneedling can deliver amazing skin tightening and texture-reducing results. During treatment, your provider uses the Genius device to microneedle your skin, creating tiny pinpricks on the surface of your skin. Those pinpricks help to break up scar tissue while stimulating your body’s healing processes. 

The Genius device also directs RF energy directly into your skin, which enhances results by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These are the proteins that keep your skin tight, smooth, and elastic. Together, the radiofrequency and microneedling help to improve your skin’s tone and texture, minimizing the appearance of your scar(s). 

LaseMD

To further resurface your skin, your Heights Aesthetic Laser Center provider combines the RF microneedling with LaseMD, a fractional laser. This creates microchannels in your skin, further triggering your body’s regeneration processes, including the production of collagen and elastin.

When used with RF microneedling, LaseMD can not only speed up your scar and stretch mark reduction journey but will also further enhance the results so you get more out of your treatments. 

What should I expect during treatments to reduce stretch marks and scars?

Both of these treatments are minimally invasive and designed with your comfort in mind. The microneedles used are so small that you shouldn’t feel more than a brief moment of discomfort during treatment. We use an innovative cooling system beside treatment as well to accommodate for any heating sensation during treatment.

Even more, both LaseMD and Genius treatments come with minimal downtime. In fact, you can have your stretch marks or scar treated at the Heights Aesthetic Laser Center office, then continue on with your day immediately afterward. 

How many stretch mark and scar-reduction treatments will I need?

It depends on your scar or stretch mark, your skin goals, and your skin’s responsiveness to treatment. Talk to the licensed team of providers so they can recommend a treatment plan for you.
