Stretch marks
True beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes

The stretch marks must be considered as real scars. This imperfection of the skin affects the majority of women and is more common on the hips, buttocks, abdomen and on the breast. There are no therapies that can absolutely resolve this problem, but the use of the fractional non-ablative laser of 1565 nm for the stretch marks’ treatment can lead to a considerable improvement of their appearance. Can be treated as red (recent) stretch marks, as white (old).
