Q. I recently read an article that smooth beam/cool beam laser treatments are now being used to help eliminate old (white) stretch marks. Does your practice offer this type of service or anything similar?
I have a number of white stretch marks that I would really like to reduce the appearance of, or, if possible, eliminate. I came to see you a few years ago and you prescribed some topical creams to see if we could have any success. Unfortunately, like we discussed, they did not do much good on my skin type. I think you said that our next step might be trying to bring back the natural pigment so they would not be as noticeable.
I am planning on making another appointment with you and just wanted to get some background information beforehand. Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to respond.
We do not promote it for this use because I have not seen great results. Also, it takes many sessions to see any difference at all and this can end up costing a lot of money.
