Debunking 4 Laser Stretch Mark Removal Myths at Uptown Medical Center in McAllen – Part 1

At Uptown Medical Wellness & Anti-Aging Center in McAllen, we understand the importance of feeling and looking your best. It’s why we’ve dedicated our time to only using services that promote wholeness for your well-being, but also for your skin. If you struggle feeling confident because you have stretch marks, know you are not alone.

We highly recommend using Laser Stretch Mark Removal if you’d like to remove them. It’s a common procedure with a lot of misconceptions surrounding it. We want to share this two-part series about four common myths.

“I Have Stretch Marks Because I am Over-Weight”

While stretch marks are common for those who are pregnant or who gained weight, having stretch marks does not mean you are overweight.

They can also occur due to:

  • Stress
  • Puberty
  • Fluctuations in hormones

“Stretch Marks Are Impossible to Remove”

This is false. Stretch marks happen when the skin gradually tightens and stretches. The skin’s elastic fibers under the surface then create new skin.

Laser stretch mark removal:

  • Triggers new skin tissue production.
  • Uses pulses of light to break down damaged skin cells.
  • Takes between 15 – 30 minutes and requires no downtime recovery period.

Every individual will have a different experience with this treatment. Some people may need more than four sessions to see results.
