Stretch Mark Removal Surgery

Those who have new stretch marks and wish to perform immediate action in order to get rid of the will usually look into the different stretch mark removal surgery options available to them. There are three different types of procedures that can help to remove stretch marks that include; laser stretch mark removal, dermabrasion, and chemical peels. Each of these procedures can be expensive and are not guaranteed to work.

Laser Stretch Mark Removal

As we stated earlier this type of treatment uses a very concentrated beam of light that works to remove a small layer of skin that contains the stretch marks. This procedure does not take very long and the healing process will begin immediately. If done properly and if there are no side effects the new skin will grow over the old and the marks will be gone.

Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is one of the more expensive stretch mark removal surgery. During this procedure the skin is frozen before a special tool will be used to file down (or sand down) the skin. This is an abrasive action that works to improve the contours of the surface of the skin and replace it with new skin – which will be much smoother. This stretch mark removal surgery can be conducted right in the office of the dermatogist or in an outpatient surgical facility.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are also known as derma-peeling and is a procedure that is used to help improve the skin’s appearance. During the stretch mark removal surgery the doctor will use a chemical solution and apply it to the affected area of the skin. This special solution will cause the skin to blister before it will begin to peel off.

Once this has happened new skin will grow over the blistered and dead skin. This new skin will generally be smoother and not as wrinkled as the older skin. However, it will also be more sensitive to the sun. You will need to apply the necessary protection when you leave the house.
