Fraxel Laser for stretch marks
Imagine going for a run with a friend, only they get to run on a flat road, while you’re forced to make your way over deep sand dunes - you’ll never manage to keep up! It’s the same problem with our skin; it has problems producing enough collagen to keep our skin looking fresh as we age. When it suffers damage, such as stretch marks caused by rapid growth stretching, it can’t act quickly enough to repair itself. The Fraxel Laser treatment can give it a little helping hand.
Fraxel Laser is absolutely perfect for targeting stretch marks, as it encourages your skin to create new cells to replace old, damaged ones. Pinpoint laser beams penetrate the lower layers of the skin, and fire up your body’s natural healing process. It can be offered on any part of the body, and works efficiently regardless of where the problem area appears, or how substantial the marks are.
The treatment is completely non-surgical, and has a minimal downtime. A topical cream will be applied to the area to numb it first, and we’ll make sure you’re comfortable throughout the treatment. Results can be seen after just a few weeks, but your skin will continue to improve over the following 3-6 months, so keep an eye on your progress! You may experience some redness afterwards, but you’ll be back to your normal routine in no time.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our treatment co-ordinators to discuss your treatment options.

Fraxel Laser FAQs
How does Fraxel work?
Fraxel Laser utilises fractional technology to target stretch marks by penetrating deep into the skin. The treatment works by focusing on a fraction of the tissue and leaving the rest of the surrounding tissue untouched, enhancing rapid restoration of the damage. Fraxel stimulates the production of new collagen, promoting the growth of new cells.
When do the results appear, and how long do they last?
Soon after the treatments your skin will appear smoother, brighter and more toned. You will be able to see optimum results once you complete a full course of treatments. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age and skin condition.
How many Fraxel Laser treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will be assessed by your practitioner during your first consultation. Usually we recommend a minimum of 6 treatments.
