Stretch marks are longitudinal strips wrinkled skin, which are caused by stretching the skin to its boundaries, which usually occurs when the body’s hormonal changes, pregnancy, obesity, as well as the rapid growth during puberty. Fibroblasts are responsible for the formation of proteins elastin and collagen that are so important to maintaining a healthy, supple and taut skin. As a result of the dynamic changes occurring in the dermis fibroblasts body may be impaired, which causes a disturbance in the production of collagen and elastin fibers, stretch, or even rupture of the cellular structure, with the consequence are unsightly looking spindle line. Stretch marks may be accompanied by slight pain or burning sensation, but in most cases it is completely undetectable.
The most common areas of stretch marks are around the buttocks, abdomen, thighs or chest, but they can also appear on the back or shoulders.

During the consultations, medical doctor determines what tests should be performed for surgery. Among the contraindications for surgery are:
– Intense tan
– Sensitivity to light and receiving photosensitizing preparations eg. Retinol, marigold, wit. C
– Implants, fillers and non-absorbable medical thread, located in the area accumulation
The treatment may require the removal of striae anesthetic cream suitable when used parameters may cause discomfort to the patient. At lower frequencies and the laser power of medical anesthesia is not required.
Removal of stretch marks in Jelenia Gora Laser Therapy Center is made possible by the use of technology eCO2 fractional laser, which gives excellent results in patients with identified significant changes in the skin. For patients whose area the occurrence of stretch marks is small, you can use the Erbium laser Dermablate Effect, which does not require a profound interference with the coating of the skin.
Before surgery, the skin is cleaned, and if required by the parameters of the therapeutic, anesthetic ointment is applied. During the procedure, the skin tissue is vaporized to the healthy and normal, so that the difference between the cracks arising in the skin, and its natural surface became completely indistinguishable. Guarantee matching according to the number of pulses to the needs of the therapy is the use of a scanner, which first area is exposed to the laser, and then outputs a sequence of micropulses to the selected field. Then, the laser scanner is moved to the adjacent part of the skin. Doing treatment reduces to a minimum the possibility of burns during therapy.
after the surgery
After the treatment the skin is noticeable swelling and redness, which, however, disappear after a few days.
