Last February 18, I was invited to an event by Clarence called Love is in the Air. This is their post-Valentine’s event and they launched new services as well.
Clarence: Love is in the Air
As we all know, stretch marks are unfortunate fact of life for almost every woman in the world. This happens when skin gets stretched too far or too fast (e.g. during pregnancy, puberty or even weight loss) – and we would want them to just disappear without feeling any pain at all.
For a person like me, I have stretch marks which would remind me that I was once chubbier than my current weight. In addition to that, I even have scars from the wounds I gained from when I was still in my childhood. Seeing this everyday, reminds me of how I was rowdy back then. Sure, there are various ways of removing these but are they really that effective?
Just as when I thought that nothing can resolve this problem that we face, finally there’s a treatment for stretch marks that helps give you the clear, smooth, touchable skin you’ve been dreaming of. Laser stretch mark treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses pulses of fractional laser light to break down stretch marks and improve the appearance of your skin.

As you can see in the photos, the results are really quick. In just one (1) treatment, a lot can change. What more if you undergo six (6) treatments?
In just 30 minutes, it can deliver superior and long-lasting results. It is ideal for all stretch marks, regardless of its cause. The most interesting part is that, there is no downtime with the treatment! You can go out with your friends right after undergoing the treatment!

What I love about this clinic is that, the ambience is very calming and soothing to the nerves. You will not feel anxious if you are going to have your appointment here.
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
Laser stretch mark treatment is appropriate for any skin type, including very light and very dark skin. Your provider will discuss with you whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.
How does it work?
Your provider uses a fractional laser from the company that invented and patented micro-fractional laser technology. Pulses of fractional laser light are used to break down stretch marks, triggering new tissue production at the site and helping to improve stretch mark color. The new collagen can leave the stretch mark smoother in texture and reduce the appearance of the stretch mark on the skin.
How long does it take?
The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Does it hurt?
Most people feel minimal pain during the laser procedure. Your provider may discuss pain management options with you.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people need three (3) to five (5) treatment sessions for optimum results.
How quickly will I recover?
People typically resume their regular activities immediately following the treatment session. Hence, no downtime!
What can I usually expect after treatment?
Typically, most people experience a temporary redness and swelling of the stretch mark (or treated area) which may last a few days. Your provider will discuss other potential side effects with you.
