Stretch Marks

Stretch marks, technically called striae, are caused by rapid stretching of the skin. They commonly form as a result of pregnancy, growth spurts in puberty, steroid use, significant weight gain, and increased muscle development in body builders. Often red, purple, or pink in color, stretch marks are a cosmetic concern but not a health risk. For women or men with stretch marks, effective treatment options are available near Boston at SkinCare Physicians.

To learn more about your stretch marks treatment options, request a consultation online or call our office at (617) 731-1600 to schedule an appointment.

Treatment Options

The following treatments, administered by our experienced physicians, make stretch marks less noticeable by improving skin texture and eliminating unwanted coloring:

  • Laser skin resurfacing with fractional lasers such as Fraxel® or other energy sources stimulate the skin’s natural healing process to smooth away the uneven surface and reduce redness.
  • Laser skin therapy with our pulsed dye laser collapses the blood vessels within stretch marks to fade redness without damaging the surface of the skin.
