Stretch Mark Removal in St. Louis
Striae or "Stretch Marks" are a common medical condition affecting millions of people. This problem appears when the skin is overly stretched and red, white or silver colored lines appear and remain on the surface of the skin as a result. Stretch marks typically develop during growth spurts, weight gain, pregnancy, and in some illnesses. They are associated with an increase in cortisone, and the actual "skin stretching" may be secondary to their development. They commonly appear on the abdomen, thighs, breasts and upper arms. People affected by this condition are self-conscious of the stretch marks and tend to cover them with clothing. While many apply topical creams and ointments in an effort to improve the appearance of stretch marks, these topical treatments have been disappointing in preventing, let alone improving the appearance of stretch marks, despite larger-than-life claims to the contrary.
Dr Blumenthal has developed a technique for the treatment of stretch marks using several lasers that have been producing impressive results.
The benefits to Dr. Blumenthal's stretch mark removal technique include:
- It is totally painless and there is no recovery time
- A typical session lasts about 30 minutes
- There is no anesthesia required
- Results are seen in less than one month
- The evolution of Dr. Blumenthal's perfection of the technique has come from years of treating his own patients
