Stretchmarks are a skin problem that affects many women, but also men. Do you have stretch marks? These are characterized by striped scars in the connective tissue. If your stretch marks are perceived as disturbing cosmetically, we at Huidzorg West offer a safe and effective treatment.
Scientific research has shown that non-ablative fractional laser treatment is the most effective treatment method on the market. And that is exactly what we have to offer you!
Huidzorg West uses the most effective and newest treatment method for stretch marks, namely the Nordlys Ellipse Fraxx 1550nm, an Erbium Glass laser. This unique method of treatment ensures skin renewal by stimulating collagen and elastin in the dermis (deeper skin layers). This special laser technique is different from other fractional laser treatments. For example, the pulse duration is extremely short, making it an intensive treatment with a relatively short recovery period.
