Stretch marks are striations on the skin and may be purple or red in color if recent, or white if they are older. The appearance of stretch marks can be diminished with the use of fractional laser treatments or other treatments which are applied by a specialist. To find a good specialist and get good results, you need to consider a number of factors.
Find Specialists in Your Area
The specialists that offer stretch marks treatments may include:
- Plastic surgeons
The specialists in your area will be listed in local directories and numerous websites that you may find when you go online. Narrow your search by calling the beauty clinics and ask what type of stretch marks treatments they offer. If you are looking for a laser treatment, make sure to ask what type of laser treatments they offer.
You should ask a number of questions, either on the phone or when visiting the facilities. You should ask about the costs, the number of treatments required, the drugs or lotions that may be needed before and after the treatment, and how long it will take to recover. Also ask also about alternative options.
Previous Patients and Results
It is equally important to ask about previous results. Ask for pictures with previous patients to decide if the treatment and specialist can deliver the results you are looking for.
When choosing a stretch marks specialist, bear in mind that stretch marks cannot be erased completely, but they can be diminished.
