Many of us women have stretch marks, primarily resulting from being pregnant or losing weight. The skin is stretched too far and/or too fast and creates those horrific lines that we hate.
I was recently watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians and they aired Kim getting the stretch marks on her breasts removed with a laser treatment. Now normally I think Kim is extrememly vain and shallow when it comes to her looks but I was like hold up , wait, I want to try that too!!!
I thought there was no treatment to get rid of stretch marks, besides the creams that never seem to work. Well it seems like this stretch mark laser removal is becoming highly popular amongst women and men.
How does it work? It’s a powerful laser beam that removes thin layers of skin around the stretch mark. The skin begins to repair the microscopic wounds and over time the new tissue replaces the old. The stretch marks diminish and the skin looks flawless and smooth.
How does it feel? You will experience slight discomfort but it’s painless.
How long is the recovery? Great thing about this procedure is that there is no down time. You can have the treatment done during your lunch break and return right back to work.
How long does it take to see the results: As more treatments are done, the skin begins to change. Depending on the person, it can take 3-6 sessions to achieve your desirable results.
How much does it cost? This procedure isn’t cheap by any means. Each session is approximately $500.
Now in no way, shape, or form am I suggesting that you should have this procedure done if you have stretch marks. I just think it’s good to know that a sista has options!
