Fractional erbium laser resurfacing for stretch marks
The fractional erbium laser resurfacing treatment is a new treatment for stretch marks. This is a very problematic problem for women, especially after they have just undergo a pregnancy. This is because when their stomach expands during pregnancy, their skin got stretched and after the pregnancy, the stomach will leave some marks due to the stretching.
What is fractional erbium laser
This new treatment, also known as Coolbeam fractional erbium resurfacing, is first demonstrated on the hit show The Doctors by Dr. Simon Ourian, the Medical Director of Epione Medical Corporation of Los Angeles. Like all fractional laser treatments, this new procedure will utilise microscopic lasers to create millions of ‘holes’ in the patients skin. The purpose is to activate our body’s healing system which in turn will stimulate the growth of new collagen. This will help to ‘fill up’ the stretch marks in the skin.
Is fractional erbium laser painful?
Patients who have undergo the coolbeam laser reported no pain after the procedure. However, they do have to undego more than one treatment. In fact, the average patient will have to attend at least 3 sessions to see the results.
