For patients seeking a more aggressive treatment for stretch marks, the Fraxel laser-FDA-approved for age spots, acne scars and melasma-may be an option.
Used off-label on stretch mark-riddled areas, Fraxel penetrates the skin’s outermost layer to stimulate collagen and elastin production deep within skin. It works to alter the color of stretch marks along with their texture, depth and diameter.
The procedure requires little healing and downtime, and a series of two to three treatments (each spaced two weeks apart and starting at $1,200) is recommended to achieve optimal results. However, results are not totally predictable.
