Laser Stretch Mark Removal Q & A

How does laser scar and stretch mark removal work?

Dr. Tumbaga uses the Icon laser system at Wellness Diagnostics & Medispa. She applies the Icon 1540 laser to remove stretch marks, acne, and surgical scars from almost any part of your body, including your face. The Icon 1540 laser is safe for most skin types.

Icon laser scar removal is a non-invasive procedure that targets problem areas without harming healthy skin surrounding your scar or stretch marks. The treatment sends heat energy deep into your skin, breaking down scar tissue and stimulating your immune system to create new cells. This process allows your body to heal itself naturally, reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks by generating new tissues.

This process allows new, healthy skin to grow without damaging surrounding skin, as with surgical procedures. Laser treatments can significantly fade your stretch marks or scars, revealing your smooth, radiant skin.

For what conditions does an aesthetic specialist use the Icon laser?

Dr. Tumbaga uses the Icon 1540 laser to repair the following skin problems:

  • Surgical scars
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks

What can I expect from an Icon laser scar or stretch mark removal treatment?

Icon laser scar and stretch mark removal isn’t a painful procedure, but Dr. Tumbaga may apply a cooling anesthetic to prevent any potential discomfort as the laser warms your skin.

How long it takes depends on the size of the treatment area, but Dr. Tumbaga typically spends about 30 minutes on laser scar or stretch mark removals. You may see results after just one treatment, but many patients require three to five laser treatment sessions to see the best results.

Icon laser scar and stretch mark removal require minimal downtime, and you should be able to return to work or your usual activities immediately after your treatment.
