Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Stretch marks can be challenging to completely remove, but some treatments may offer significant improvements. We tend to see good results with Fractional CO2 laser and the cost usually ranges around 1-2 thousand dollars per session although it can vary significantly per area and region. Any laser treatments come with certain risks and potential side effects, but the risks can be minimized with proper treatment settings. Assuming proper settings, the most common side effect is hyperpigmentation (PIH) which tend to gradually resolve on its own or with bleaching creams. Fractional laser treatment requires topical numbing and with adequate numbing, any discomfort should be minimal. For best results a series of 2-3 laser treatments are recommended. I hope it helps and good luck!
