Stretch marks are an unfortunate fact of life, affecting both male and females. It occurs when the skin has stretched out too fast and too far, causing unsightly coloured lines to appear on the body. Stretch marks are common during puberty, pregnancy and weight loss, affecting all ages and skin types.

With just a few treatments, the redness of the stretch mark can be reduced, leaving your skin smooth and clear. This treatment is ideal for all types of stretch marks; it’s a fast and effective treatment that typically takes 30 minutes, delivering superior and long-lasting results. You can expect minimal to no downtime with the treatment.
