Laser Stretch Mark Treatment with Dr Firas Al-Niaimi

Beautiful, flawless skin doesn’t have to be a stretch! As a leading London-based cosmetic and medical dermatologist, Dr Firas offers a number of skin rejuvenation treatments, specialising specifically in the use of laser technology.

Stretch Marks

When it comes to stretch marks, over-the-counter creams and oils never truly deliver on the results they promise, which is something most of us can relate to. Stretch marks affect the majority of the population at some point throughout your life, particularly women as a side effect of pregnancy. Other causes of stretch marks involve rapid weight gain and during puberty when adolescents experience significant growth spurts in certain areas over a short space of time.

They appear as long and thin vein-like marks that fade over time from a reddish-purple colour to more of a silvery-white hue, making for an undesirable appearance in some cases. Most commonly, stretch marks occur in areas where fat is stored, such as the tummy, buttocks, thighs and breasts, although they can affect almost all areas of the body.

CO2 and Nonablative Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks

While it might seem like you’re stuck with them forever, stretch marks can sometimes fade over time, and advanced laser treatment demonstrates remarkable results in speeding up this process. Dr Firas Al-Niaimi offers both ablative and nonablative laser treatment from his Harley Street practice, depending on the severity of your condition.

Ablative treatment better suits more severe stretch marks as the highly precise laser technology works by removing the outer skin layers to reveal smoother skin beneath that looks and feels more youthful. On the other hand, mild stretch marks would benefit from non-ablative treatment whereby the lasers instead work to stimulate the production of new and healthy collagen to repair the existing damage.

To find out more information about stretch mark treatment, or any other expert laser treatment, don’t hesitate to contact Dr Firas Al-Niaimi’s team and book your consultation today.
