Permanent Removal of Unsightly Stretch Marks
Effective and Safe Treatments.
Who does not know them, the noticeable white or gray stripes on the abdomen, back or buttocks? Stretch marks especially appear during pregnancy, but the unsightly skin changes do not only occur in women, men are also affected.
In addition to pregnancy, growth, muscle building, weight changes, congenital weakness of connective tissue or the intake of drugs containing cortisone also provoke the visible streaks. Once they have appeared, they do not recede.
The conspicuous lines are completely harmless, but many women and men perceive them as aesthetically disturbing.

Stretch marks (medical: striae) are caused by an overstretched connective tissue. Overstretching the skin leads to injuries in the subcutis, which are initially reddish or bluish. After the healing process, whitish to grayish scars remain permanently under the skin. Usually, the unattractive up to two centimeters wide stripes run parallel to each other. Around the navel, they move radially away from the belly button.
Stretch marks mainly occur in skin regions that are exposed to great stress and can quickly increase in volume, in particular the stomach, legs and buttocks as well as arms, chest and hips.
Effective Treatment with High-Tech Laser and Microneedling
To treat stretch marks effectively, depending on the severity and extent of the stripes, we recommend a therapy with the CO2 laser eCO2 Plus or a treatment with the Infini device, which combines the classical microneedling with the effect of radio frequency. Both devices are developed by Lutronic, one of the leading manufacturers of high-tech devices in the field of aesthetic dermatology.
The low-risk treatment with the high-tech devices creates finest micro-injuries in the skin of the stretched tissue. This stimulates the cell renewal as well as the formation of collagen and elastin. So, the tissue regenerates and the skin tightens in the treated area.
As a result, the complexion improves significantly and the noticeable stripes are usually almost completely removed. The necessary number of sessions depends on the treatment area and the size of the stripes.
