Reducing the appearance of stretch marks is fast, with most treatment sessions lasting about 30 minutes. Three to five sessions are typically recommended to achieve the best results. During the procedure, the laser application may cause some slight discomfort, but anesthetic is not usually needed. Laser stretch mark treatments have few side effects, including some temporary redness and swelling. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.

Whether caused by pregnancy, puberty or rapid weight gain, women will do anything to try and prevent stretch marks from appearing. However, lotions and compression garments cannot keep stretch marks from emerging. Stretch marks occur when the existing skin is rapidly extended and new cell production can’t keep up. Laser treatments with the Icon Aesthetic System activate new collagen production and heal stretch marks from the inside out.
The Icon’s fractional intense pulse light targets stretch marks and the surrounding tissues. The laser energy triggers the body’s collagen and elastin production mechanisms to create new skin cells. As new tissues develop below the surface of the skin, stretch marks begin to fill in and disappear without harming the surrounding areas. Icon laser stretch mark treatments are FDA-cleared and are suitable for all skin types.
