Laser Stretch Mark/Uneven Texture Removal
Laser Stretch Mark Removal is a safe and effective procedure to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. This treatment involves the application of light wavelength from fractional laser, the areas of which then absorb the discolouration from stretchmarks. This treatment then promotes the production of collagen to plump up the skin again making the marks less visible.
