Stria marks often appear on the body after some major body changes, such as pregnancy and delivery, losing a significant amount of weight, weight gain over a relatively short period of time, and even puberty. They occur because of the stress that is put on the layer of the skin that is responsible for elasticity and shape. This layer is stretched beyond its capacity and may even result in scarring. This need not be a cause for concern or despair anymore, as GMR Hospital has all the resources at its disposal to take care of your stria marks for you in a safe, effective, painless, quick, and cost-effective manner!
Which are the areas where stria is seen and which can be treated?
Stria is most often seen in the abdominal region, especially after childbirth, but it can also be seen in the hips, thighs, buttocks, chest, arms, lower back, etc. If there has been significant tissue expansion then there is also the possibility of stria getting formed anywhere in the body.
How are stria removed?
Stria can be removed in a variety of ways, from skin creams to laser treatments. Our expert dermatologists are on hand to give you the advice and suggestions you need that would be best for your particular situation. If you choose to go for the laser treatment for your stria, or stretch marks, then be rest assured that you are in the best of hands at GMR Hospital.
How does laser treatment work for stria?
Under laser treatment, a high-intensity laser beam is targeted onto the stria or stretch mark areas. The treated area heals quickly with the body forming new layers of skin on top of the layers that were removed by the laser. What you get is a healthy, new, skin that looks as great as you feel!
