Removal of pregnancy stretching scars Contact us
Pregnancy and the birth of a child is one of the most unforgettable moments in a woman’s life. The birth of a child evokes emotions that a woman would never otherwise be able to experience.
However, pregnancy is very stressful for a woman’s body and can leave permanent marks on the body. Some of these internal and external changes can caused discontent and dissatisfaction for the new mother.
Majority of pregnant women are concerned about whether marks will stay on the breast, abdomen and pelvis after giving birth. Stretching marks are caused by the stretching of the skin’s blood skin, as well as hormonal factors.
As the name implies, they are the result of pregnancy. Rapid weight gain or muscle growth during adolescence can also cause a “pregnancy scar”. Women often try to prevent the formation of pregnancy scars with the help of various gels and creams. So far, there is no way to completely prevent the emergence of pregnancy scars. If scars have been formed, they can be lightened and faded with our effective treatment methods.
Removal of bothersome pregnancy scars is a very common and safe procedure performed in our clinics with the latest laser treatment methods and excellent skills.
Laser removal for scars
Laser scar removal is the most painless and safest procedure. The treatment is most effective when it is done on the newly formed scar tissue, i.e the treatment is performed within one year of the scars’ birth. In the initial stages, an anesthetic cream is applied to the skin, after which the treatment procedure itself is performed using the most modern laser treatment method. The procedure is painless and takes about 30 minutes. Removal of pregnancy scars usually requires 3-6 treatments, also depending on the number and quality of the scars. Changes are already noticeable after the first treatment. The complete end result requires serial treatment to reduce and eliminate pregnancy scars. Usually the procedures are done every three to four weeks.
After the laser procedure, the client can leave the clinic immediately. The skin may turn slightly red for 1-3 days. However, it does not cause an uncomfortable state of being. After the procedure, the skin is treated with a standard base cream such as Bepanthen. It is important to remember to protect the treated area from the sun 3-4 weeks after the procedure.
Our plastic surgeons recommend laser scar removal because it is effective and painless and the client does not need sick leave.
There are a few limitations that prevent scar removal from being done. These include e.g. inflammation of the skin area, pregnancy or breastfeeding, and severe heart disease.
