Scar & Stretch Mark Reduction portland


Scar Reduction

Most of us have them. Some scars come with a good story while others may be due to a traumatic accident or chronic acne. Scars may look different from person to person, and their shape, size, and profile will depend on the severity of the injury sustained. Actual scar tissue forms as a result of the healing process following a skin injury. No matter what triggered scar development, we have effective treatment options to reduce the appearance of most scars. Depending on the scar type, we may use a combination of advanced lasers and medicated therapeutic injections to improve the texture, tone, size, and elasticity of the scar.

Stretch Mark Reduction

Science has yet to discover what exactly causes stretch marks, the common theory is that these marks occur due to incredible stress placed on an area of skin, causing the breakdown of elastin and collagen. These striae may develop from pregnancy, body building, adolescent growth spurts, or may be noticed after significant weight gain.

Some of the common areas we see stretch marks include the abdomen, arms, back, breasts, buttocks, or groin. Fresh marks may look red, turning white as the healing process progresses. Stretch mark reduction is possible without surgery or invasive procedures. We use only state-of-the-art lasers that target scars and stretch marks for long lasting results with little pain or downtime.

Using laser technology for Portland scar and stretch mark treatment
At Thrive’s Portland office, we treat people from areas including Vancouver, Oregon City, and other nearby communities with customized scar and stretch mark treatments. By incorporating innovative laser technology, we are able to promote the stimulation of skin beneath the scar tissue, causing fibroblasts to divide. Laser treatment also encourages collagen production, which results in the thickening of the skin, creating a more even, healthy appearance.
