What do Stretch Marks look like and what causes them?
In their initial stages, fresh stretch marks appear as thin pink streaks or lines which is sometimes accompanied with minor itching. These light pink marks then transform into deeper pink, purple or brown marks depending on your skin tone.
Stretch marks occur when the fibres in the skin lose their elasticity and tear due to rapid growth from puberty, weight gain or weight loss and pregnancy. This results in coloured lines or streaks on the skin.

How does Fractional Laser treat Stretch Marks?
Fractional RF Laser Treatments utilises the innovative Pollogen TriFractional RF Laser to rejuvenate and target unwanted stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Micro-needles are used to create tiny wounds triggering the body’s natural healing process. Radio Frequency energy is then applied into the skin to further encourage collagen production. By stimulating the regeneration process – new cells form to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Dependent on your priority areas a minimum of 4 to 6 treatments is required for optimum results.
Downtime and aftercare post Stretch Mark Treatment
It is common to experience redness and swelling which will subside within 72 hours. The healing properties of LED Light Therapy is recommended immediately after Fractional Laser to soothe the treated area and accelerate cellular renewal and repair.
As the skin heals, you may experience black dots from the micro wounds created from the Fractional Laser. You are not advised to use vigorous exfoliating scrubs on the area and avoid prolonged exposure to the sun at least 2 weeks post treatment.
We recommend using Results Active Protect SPF50+ as a staple in your daily skin routine post treatment to help soothe and protect the skin. Light weight and moisturising, this oil free formula offers sun protection.
