Recently over coffee one of my girlfriends shared this story with me, “One day I was getting ready to get in the shower, when I glanced in the mirror and to my horror I saw something that wasn’t there yesterday. Stretch marks! I made it 8 months into my first pregnancy without a single one. Of course I have been searching online for what to do to prevent them from happening, but that still leaves me with the haunting question what to do with the ones that I already have.”. The answer to her problem? Affirm Laser.
Affirm Laser is the only FDA approved laser to treat stretch marks. The Affirm Laser combines a 1320NM and 1440nm laser wavelengths to boost collagen deep within the skin which helps flatten stretch marks. The laser fires both lasers almost simultaneously so that the patient only feels a “pinch” once. It also stimulates new collagen production in the treated area, and will help reduce sagging over time.
Here is a before and after photo from one of our past patients. The results are unbelievable! This patient received Affirm Laser on their stomach, only on the left side. You can see the results are!
With the Affirm Laser multiple procedures are suggested to optimize the results. Four to six treatments being about three to six weeks apart is average, and each procedure taking about 30 to 45 minutes. This procedure requires little to no down time, because the Affirm Laser does not remove any layers of skin, so most patients experience sunburn like redness that can easily be covered up with make-up, and dissolve within 24 hours.
Since Affirm Laser is gentle on the skin and does not need dies or markers to mark the treatment area it can be used on virtually any part of the body. From the stomach, to the breast, the thigh area – any place where stretch marks might creep in!
