What is Stretch Mark Removal?
Stretch mark removal is a laser skin resurfacing technique that is used to target and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. At Art of Balance Wellness Spa, we use the Palomar ICON 1540mm laser for stretch mark removal. This non-ablative, fractional laser resurfacing device is safer and more effective than most laser resurfacing systems. As a result, you will notice results sooner and with less downtime.
Using the Palomar laser, we can deliver laser energy deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production. This process causes the skin to repair itself, eliminating stretch marks caused by pregnancy, fluctuations in weight and growth spurts.

How Much Does the Stretch Mark Removal Treatment Cost?
The cost of stretch mark removal treatments will vary, as we find each guest pursues treatment for unique and often personal reasons. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals so we can administer a personalized stretch mark removal treatment best suited for your needs. At this time, we will be able to inform you of the cost of treatment. If you have any concerns regarding the cost of your treatment, you may want to consider one of our financing options.
What is the Stretch Mark Removal Treatment Like?
The stretch mark removal treatment may involve the use of a topical anesthetic, which will help minimize any discomfort caused by the Palomar laser. During treatment, a handheld device will be placed over the desired treatment area. Laser energy is then delivered directly into the skin. This may cause a warming sensation in the skin, but topical anesthetic combined with a cooling feature on our laser device will help you remain comfortable. The duration of treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area, but typically lasts between 30 minutes and an hour.
What is the Stretch Mark Removal Recovery Like?
Stretch mark removal can cause some redness and sensitivity in the skin, much like the effects of a sunburn. The skin will be sensitive after treatment, so it is important to avoid excessive sun exposure until the skin has completely healed. You can resume most normal activities immediately after your appointment, and you can expect the skin to be fully healed within about a week.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Stretch Mark Removal?
In the weeks following your stretch mark removal treatment, collagen will form in the skin and gradually produce results. However, it can take a few months and often several treatments before significant results become visible. We typically recommend a series of five or more treatments for stretch mark removal, which will produce noticeable results in about two to three months.
